Great tour with John. He is passionate about history and we learned so much. I felt like we saw so much that we would have missed otherwise. It was also helpful to have someone help us navigate the crowds. After the tour we were able to go back to places he showed us that we wanted to spend more time.
We spent a fabulous morning touring York with John just before the New Year. It was our favorite morning of our 9 day trip to the UK. Our kids, ages 13 and 15, also really enjoyed the outing. John was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and great company. We took the tour the first morning of our visit and it was a great overview of the city history which is what we had requested. A walking tour is the perfect way to see York since a lot of the city is pedestrian only. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this tour!
My wife and I loved this tour. Our guide, John, was quite passionate about York history and it shows in the energy he brings to the tour. He took us to places I am sure we would have missed had we been on our own. You set the pace and John delivers the facts. Never a dull moment.
You should do this first thing when you arrive. You are sure to miss out if you don't.
This was a great experience with John our tour guide. We did the 2-hour tour. We were clearly going over time a little, but John told us not to worry about this. We had people in our party from 14 to 73 and John was able to keep us informed and entertained.
We asked for a specific start and end location and this was accommodated exactly.
