Spot on Nick
Sean_J
, Jun 2022
Wow - what an hour and 45 mins. Nick our historian was spot on - his knowledge of the local history was amazing, and so interesting. Learned so much ...that if you were not informed of you would walk straight on past. - "devil's doors" . " lepers window", "one for the road" "and "hangers on" to mention but a few. Excellent would go again if and when back in York - thanks Sean and Julie

Great insightful tour , guide very impressive

My mum and me had booked a walking tour around York as part of trip away to the city. When we arrived to our surprise we were the only to people on the tour. The man leading the tour was brilliant , and extremely knowledgeable and engaging with a plethora of facts and history about York. We were led through all the main landmarks starting at the minster along the old city walls and through the well preserved cobbled streets of York. We would highly recommend, the experience was fulfilling and we both felt like we left knowing a lot more about the city of York!

Tom, our guide, is a local guy and made the experience interesting and informative. Lots of interaction with him which made it more enjoyable.!! Learnt about the history of York through the ages and walked part of the City Walls to see the historic parts from that unique perspective. An inspiring introduction to York and big thanks to Tom for that.

Great knowledgeable tour guide with excellent presentation and a good walk.
Elena_R

Our tour guide was very knowledgable and ready to answer any questions that we had. He did get one thing wrong (he stated that Henry VIII was king in 1586, I corrected him, that Elizabeth was on the throne). Other than that, it was excellent - I learned a lot about the city, the landmarks, the romans. He was great!

Had an amazing tour around York. The guide’s name escapes me, but he did a wonderful job with the history and stories. It made ancient York come to life. He answered questions so thorough. Loved hearing the different eras of York. Really, really amazing job.

A wonderful sunny day out :)

A HUGE thank you to my tour guide. I was the only one booked on and instead of feeling like a nuisance, I was welcomed with a friendly smile and wonderful enthusiasm. My tour guide was extremely knowledgable about everything and was incredibly accommodating - he was constantly checking I was OK with different aspects of the tour (e.g. height). He gave recommendations the whole way around and he was always available for an anecdote of the tour went slightly off tangent. It was clear how passionate my tour guide was about York, not just the history, but the city as a whole. I would highly recommend!

Memorable walking tour of York
KAVITA_S

I wanted a snapshot of York and I ended up being the only one, so it was a private tour! The guide (Nick, I believe) was very knowledgeable and pointed out things to me which I would have missed otherwise. Got to know and appreciated York and its history much more thanks to Nick. Highly recommended.

We have been to York on many occasions, and we have done a few other walks. This walk was by far the best. He took us to places we had never been before, and told us facts we didn’t know. We enjoyed every minute of our guided tour.
