Alfred was our tour guide and I can thoroughly recommend him and this tour. He is really engaging and very knowledgeable, not just on York's history, but on lots of other subjects too. He has a wonderful sense of humour and the 90 minute tour flew by.

Thanks Shirley - really pleased you enjoyed it. I certainly don't know everything, but it's fun following where the conversation leads and keeping small groups enables us to do that. Very best Alfred

Alfred, our Tour Guide, was incredible - so knowledge (about architecture and history in general, not even just York) and so engaging. He fully brought the experience to life. Thanks to Alfred, we saw a new side to buildings we'd walked past two or three times already and there were so many interesting things that we'd have completely missed. So glad we booked this! Thanks Alfred!

Hi Sarah - well, thank you for such a positive response. It really is appreciated Alfred
