Recommend thoroughly. Our guide Chris was informative and fun. His local knowledge added an insiders touch that we appreciated very much.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Fabulous driver even though he did not get our booking from Viator which made him over booked. He worked until it was worked out and had a wonderful tour. Our driver and guide was Chris.

My husband and I spent a pleasant day with Chris and our British companions, learning about the ecology and culture of the Yorkshire moors and dales, exploring the seaside town of Whitby, and enjoying a steam train ride through a lush green valley. A native of Hutton-le-Hole, the town where sheep roam free and the people are fenced in, Chris conveyed his love and knowledge of the region with humor and enthusiasm. The three hours of free time in Whitby gave us ample time to explore the vanished religious community of Whitby Abbey through the historic site's recordings, plaques, and museum displays. And we'll never forget the 199 steps! Definitely worth the price....

This was a great trip. The tour guide took on us through the Moors on back roads giving us a rich and beautiful view of the Moors. When we got to Whitby, he gave us a few ideas of what to see, but mostly we all just explored the town in our own way and came back 2.5 hours later to share experiences. This trip is absolutely worth taking.

We had 4 days in York and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. Our guide, Chris, had first hand knowledge of the area. A very very pleasant day, would recommend.
