Our driver Chris was so knowledgeable about history, local custom, geology, farming. He seemed to have a command of eveey subject. He was also a great driver. His navigation of tight areas was amazing. Would not hesitate to take another tour with him.
This tour is just brilliant. OMG the scenery is awesome. Our guide Mark was super. So much to see and do. Whitby is stunning and we opted for the steam train ride to Goathland which I highly recommend. Definitely would do this again if we went back.
Had a wonderful day - Whitby especially was spectacular! Even when overrun with tourists, this seaside town is full of atmosphere. Walking up the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey and admiring the views of the town below, listening to the seagulls and the wind gently blowing. Loved it!
Superlative. Our tour guide was the best--funny, informative and well organized! Just spent 17 days in the UK visiting Wales and the Yorkshire area. The trip to Whitby was the highlight of the trip! Our guide graciously asked the bus driver to drop several of us at the Abbey and let us walk down. It was fabulous. We got to see the Abbey and still had plenty of time to see the town of Whitby. Highly recommend this tour.
