Best city tour ever! We visited York on 6th August (family of four) and our tour guide was Mike. Full of historic knowledge, info related to town life today and real enthusiasm and love for York and England. Big thank you from Spain! Manuel Rios
On behalf of the 6 people from the Swiss visiting choir a massive thank you to our amazing tour guide John who dedicated almost 3 (instead of 2) hours of his time to share his profound knowledge of, and enthusiasm about, York with us today. We all have participated in guided tours in other places before but this was a truly unique experience! We definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting York. Sonja
This was such a fantastic gem in York! I believe our guide’s name was Sandra. She was fantastic! So informative, funny, and a brisk walker! The reason I’m leaving feedback is because of the impact she had on my son. Something I haven’t seen in him before. At 15 yrs old, he is sceptical of all things and acts like nothing is a big deal… BUT, he still raves about Sandra’s tour. I asked what was so special and he said, “She loves her town so much and she shared it with us for free!” I’m still not sure why it had the impact that it did, but I’m grateful for it! Great job Sandra! Thanks from us in the U.S. Wendy Henderson
