Interesting tour with some flexibility as to what was prioritised. Good overview of York with suggestions as to what other things you may want to do.

Thanks Nita - we keep the groups sizes small so that it's possible to be flexible as you say - after all it's your tour and we want to include the things you want to see and do to get the most out of your time in York. Very best Sarah

Fantastic and worth every penny

This tour helped us appreciate York by showing us an interwoven history from Eboracum to the modern-day, being great for both the casual tourist and the purest history lover. The guide keeps you completely emersed in the streets, buildings and hidden passages around you; your mind is engaged with stories and puzzles that leave you hungry for more. Worth every penny, and we will be rebooking upon our return to york

Thanks very much Alex - I especially appreciate your comment that the tour hopefully engages both general interest but also specialist detail where appropriate - it's a fine balance but very satisfying if you think we pulled it off. Very best Alfred

We only had one day in York and we were so glad we booked this tour! Alfred is a friendly and incredibly knowledgable guide who brings The city’s history to life. Absolutely recommend this tour.

Thanks Darren - the great thing about a place as compact as York is that one day can be enough. The other great thing about York is that a lifetime isn't enough too! Very best Alfred

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide(Alfred) who wrapped together the history of York nicely. I feel I now understand Yorks story better, and it’s quite a story.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of York with Alfred, he had so much knowledge to share. It was amazing to get such an insight to the history of this beautiful city. I particularly liked the photos he used to enhance the tour. Being a small group it was a far more personal experience than we’ve ever had on a walking tour. I genuinely cannot recommend this enough. If you only do one thing in York then I suggest this is it!

Thanks so much Elizabeth - we keep the group sizes small for precisely the reasons you mentioned - and it makes it more personable and enjoyable for us too! Lovely to meet you. All best Alfred

Alfred is an amazing tour guide - so knowledgable and interesting. We were in a small group of six and he made the effort to learn our names and home towns then kept us entertained throughout by weaving in tales of where we were from with the history of York and also by linking the old with the new. Fun and informative. Top marks from Halifax.

Hi Lisa - well, I'm really fond of Halifax! And yes, we keep the group sizes small for precisely the reasons you've highlighted so thanks very much for commenting on that. Very best Alfred

Alfred is a true historian who brought the story of York to life. He wove both modern and traditional tales from the intricate details of the kings to the commercialisation of cocoa. This tour made our weekend in York!

We found this an absolutely excellent tour conducted very professionally by our guide Alfred. The tour gave us a great insight into the history of the city stretching back several centuries, clearly explaining the development of York, the historic buildings and many ancient walls. The visits to the back lanes and squares were also very informative giving us a few more places to visit and explore after the tour. In view of our experience with this tour I would certainly give it my highest recommendation!

Thanks so much Brian - really appreciate such a full and enthusiastic response. We have a very small team of guides at Yorktour and we are all full-time professionals; so your appreciation of that is especially gratifying - many thanks!
