We spent a fabulous morning touring York with John just before the New Year. It was our favorite morning of our 9 day trip to the UK. Our kids, ages 13 and 15, also really enjoyed the outing. John was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and great company. We took the tour the first morning of our visit and it was a great overview of the city history which is what we had requested. A walking tour is the perfect way to see York since a lot of the city is pedestrian only. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this tour!

This tour was amazing! John's knowledge of archaeology and history make for a fascinating few hours. He had emailed me before I got there to ask about my interests, very nice touch. And he is a good guy to be around, friendly and pleasant. I was very lucky in that I was the only one on the tour that day, so got a tailor made private tour.
I plan a trip back to York and will do this tour again.

My wife and I loved this tour. Our guide, John, was quite passionate about York history and it shows in the energy he brings to the tour. He took us to places I am sure we would have missed had we been on our own. You set the pace and John delivers the facts. Never a dull moment.
You should do this first thing when you arrive. You are sure to miss out if you don't.

This was a great experience with John our tour guide. We did the 2-hour tour. We were clearly going over time a little, but John told us not to worry about this. We had people in our party from 14 to 73 and John was able to keep us informed and entertained.

We asked for a specific start and end location and this was accommodated exactly.
