We took an hour tour early evening. Such an informative excursion. Well enjoyed.
Could probably have been dressed in warmer clothes with hat, gloves & scarf but the fluffy blanket supplied helped us snuggle.
Certainly recommend. Thank you.

Explore top attractions like Clifford's Tower, the Jorvik Viking Centre, the Roman walls, and St Mary’s Abbey, and enjoy sweeping views along the River Ouse.
Our tour was operated by Grand Yorkshire Limited and we could not have had a better experience during our time in York. Our guide for our walking tour, Matt, was extremely friendly and knowledgable – my wife and I learned so much! He also gave us great recommendations to explore the city at our leisure and dining options as well. After lunch, our day continued with Peter, who drove us through Yorkshire making great stops in the countryside on our way to Whitby. Like Matt, Peter was just as friendly and knowledgeable about the history of York, Yorkshire, Whitby, and every stop between. We made many stops for photos along the way and to stretch our legs with a walk in the Moors. Thank you both so much for making our time in York so wonderful, I highly recommend this tour.
Great walking tour and Van Tour
A lot of great information on the walking tour and the trip to the moors and coastal cities
Driver - Pete - was great and Mat was very informative on the walking tour
