          Awesome Trip with BOB Holiday and Mark. Worth it!
          Mark is excellent as he remembered the names of all of us! He has a deep knowledge and explained everything in details. Whitby is a nice place to visit and the steam train is worth to try. Don’t forget to have fish and chips here in Whitby. Love to see the heather bushes bloom on the way to Whitby, at Farndale to be exact. On the way back to York, we saw goats crossing the road so we had to stop for a while. A moment to remember. If you plan to visit York, I recommend this tour!

          Awesome trip! Worth it!
          This was a fantastic tour. Great group of people on a smaller bus, enough time to see all of the sights, and the tour leader was excellent. We learned so much about the various locations, were given clear instructions about where to go and where to meet during our open time in Whitby., and had a fabulous time. We highly commend the tour guide, Mark, who was knowledgeable, friendly, informative, and funny. Fantastic trip that we would highly recommend.

          Interesting tour with a beautiful stay in Whitby
          Although the weather was not the best, I enjoyed the trip extremely. We were only 4 at this tour and our driver Mark explained and told us so much about the country, about Yorkshire and Whitby. Thanks so much Mark! Whitby is a very busy beautiful little town at the seaside. All the little shops and restaurants and bars are made to have a good time there. Also the Abbey is worth a visit.

          Highlight of our York Trip
          WOW! What a fabulous day out my daughter and I had when we went on the Herriot and Yorkshire Dales Day Trip from York. It was so much fun, informative, great to see all the little villages, the countryside and the wildlife. Mark was fabulous. He was so friendly, made our day really. Many photo stops and recommendations and Mark was always there to take a photo. He knew so much and it was really great to listen to his commentary as we drove along the country roads. We learned a lot! There were only two of us that turned up but he still went along with the trip - so we were lucky that we got a private tour!! What an interesting part of the country. Made out trip to York very memorable. Thanks BOBH Holidays and Mark - I will be recommending you to many people.

          Outstanding holiday in Whitby and North York with Mark and BOBH Day tours
          Another amazing and memorable trip finely managed by tour guide Mark. Mark from BOBHolidays started the day at 9 am and greeted all of us - the seven tourists who were joining the tour from USA, Canada, Singapore, and India. Travelling through the highlands while listening to Mark's wealth of knowledge, the first stop was at Byland Abbey. In the middle of no where the Byland Abbe is an absolutely stunning architecture which stands tall and reminds us of its extravagance where it was in full totality. Built in 1154 there is so much to absorb from this place. Wish Henry VIII has kept the Abbey intact for us to still enjoy the architectural brilliance. We also stopped at the beautiful town of Hemsley where we enjoyed the award winning Sausage roll from Hunters of Hemsley. Do not forget to stare at William Baron Feversham whose statue stands tall in the heart of Hemsley. We also enjoyed a cup of coffee at the Vinehouse Cafe which is a short walk by the church. You can also see their horses grazing or lazing in the stables. After Hemsley we took a few stops to enjoy the vast landscapes and learnt about the sheep flocks of the villagers. The contrasting stop of dried Heather plants, the vast highland landscapes, flowing into the mountains was breathtaking. I will come back to see the purple and lavendar views of the Heather plants. Our long stop was at Whitby - what an awesome introduction of Whitby and James Cook by Mark. He stopped in front of James Cook's statue which I was staring at in awe and thinking about so much he had achieved in his voyages in his short life of 50. From the James Cook statue we could also see the vast Whitby Abbe and the spiralling staircases in the horizon and the surrounding sea. Breathtaking views. Mark took us around the town and parked the BOB Holidays van and gave us nearly 2 hours to explore the city. We immersed into an awesome lunch at QUAYSIDE. Definitely try their Cod fish and chips and Griddled Sea Bass. We tried both and they were amazing. There are some other great restaurants around like Magpie Cafe and many other choices. Also good ice cream shops and tea rooms to sit back and enjoy. We took 99 steps to the Whitby Abbey. Also walked by the beach and into the pier to take some great photos. The sea gulls added to the beauty of the place. After spending an amazing 2 hours at Whitby we stopped at Goathland station and remembered Harry Potter. Also took some photos for memory. Mark drove back to York and shared more interesting stories on the way and ended the trip with some strong dinner recommendations. If you are in York, please book this trip with BOB Holidays and definitely recommend Mark.

          Thank you Mark for an awesome trip around Yorkshire Dales
          All credit to Mark our knowledgeable, tour guide from BOB Holidays that we had lovely trip and a memorable day spent in Yorkshire Dales National Park. The tour took us around Pateley Bridge, Kettlewell, Hawes, Askrigg and Bedale. We spent some amazing time in Pateley Bridge which was quiet and full of pure nature. Also enjoyed some fudges from the World's Oldest Sweet Shop in Pateley Bridge. Pateley Bridge also has some fine bakery where we ate a fresh fruit scone. Kettlewell was also outstanding with pure nature and its untouched beauty. Mark's expert guidance and stories made sure that we learnt more about these places, the farmers' lives, the famous stories like filming of Calendar Girls in Kettlewell. Our lunch stop was in Hawes where we also did the cheese tasting in Wensleydale Cheese factory. Their restaurant is highly recommended. Please do not forget to try the Cheese Toasties and also pick up some cheese for relishing back at home (my favourite was Apricot Cheese, Cranberry Cheese, and the Spicy Cheese).

          Yorkshire Dales
          A very enjoyable day with a small group of 5 to the Yorkshire Dales, Helmsley, Grassington and Masham. The sun was shining which was such a bonus, as, at this time of the year it can be hit and miss. Always stops for a cuppa or snack and shopping and the right places to get the perfect photos and lunches. Thankyou Mark for a wonderful day with your local knowledge and your passion explaining what York and further afield have to offer in the tour. This shows through with your love of travel.

          Highly Recommend!
          The description of the meet point was clear, easy to find. The driver, Mark, showed up early and welcomed us into a clean, warm van. He was knowledgeable and personable, sharing interesting details as we drove and on site, and he learned all our names and pointed out things that fit our personal interests throughout. The scenery was stunning. There was plenty of time to wander around and explore at our leisure. Mark gave us all the information we needed--where to find sites, restaurants, toilets. The cost was shockingly reasonable, not much (if at all) more than it would have cost us to use public transportation, but without the headache of figuring out schedules and wasted time. Really, it was a perfect day.

          James Herriot and Yorkshire Dales Day out
          We chose this tour based on our admiration for the newest All Creatures Great and Small series. Chris was an amazing driver/tour guide who had a personal connection to Alf Wight aka James Herriot. He took us to the museum in Thirsk which told us so much about the man behind the novels. We then went for a drive to see some of the locations from the series and stopped in Grassington for lunch at the Devonshire pub which is the exterior for the "Drovers Arms" of the series. We had a delightful lunch there and then proceeded to drive into the Yorkshire Dales. Although the weather was a bit grim we loved every moment of the tour. We normally rent a car and do our own driving but it was so much more enjoyable to just sit back and view the fabulous scenery. Chris made a stop at the Wensleydale Creamery on the way back where we sampled (and purchased) some excellent cheeses. They also have a wonderful gift shop. This is a great tour and we would recommend it to anyone who is a James Herriot fan and even for people who don't know who he is. Kudos to Chris for making our day out from York the best experience! He is extremely professional and knowledgeable about Yorkshire. Highly recommended.

          We had such an amazing time, it was the first time we got to go and the day trip to the Yorkshire Dale’s and Whitby and other sights in between. Mark was an excellent guide and driver for the day and he was very knowledgeable too. We’ll definitely book again when we are back in the UK. We recommend this to everyone also.

          What a wonderful day out to Herriot country! Our tour guide Mark was exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful, patient and attentive to everyone aboard which made the trip really enjoyable. We were so fortunate to have a sunny day to see the spectacular views. I’ve wanted to do this trip for a while and I was certainly not disappointed. I’d thoroughly recommend this tour, thank you Mark.

          Glorious day on the Dales
          Our trip featured some of the highlights of the Yorkshire Dales. Our guide and driver Mark shared so much of the area’s history. He also ensured that we captured some beautiful photos. We had a delicious lunch at The Cake House in Grassington and yummy scones at the Border House teas in the market town of Masham. Even though we had intermittent showers the sun did manage to show it self and it was a wonderful day. The bus was so comfy I even managed a nap from Bolton Abbey to York. Lol

          What a lovely day!
          Everything from the pick up to the drop off was top-notch. Chris met us with a smile and off we were. He has an excellent and clear voice and is so knowledgeable! He engaged each of us in a relatable way as we drove along. The countryside, though, is the star of this show. If you’ve never been, you must. Dry stone walls, green fields, waterfalls, sheep and cows and pheasant/grouse were everywhere and the little villages are divine. (I don’t know how everyone drives the narrow winding roads!) For the Herriot fans, it’s amazing to see the actually settings they used for filming as well as the little town - where I got two beautiful cashmere scarves at a sweet young-woman-owned shop. Her art is divine also! It’s a full day so dress for the weather with comfy shoes.

        Plenty of good stops on the tour with good amounts of time to see what you needed to see.
        This is not the usual kind of activity we would do on a break however we are both very glad we did this.

We very much enjoyed out trip and Mark made every attempt to ensure we had good photo opportunities, even when the mist set in on top of the moors, he knew where to go to give us views and a great experience. BOBH Tours will be used by us again, as we intend to make a return visit to York soon. Good social distancing, masks worn by all on the coach, fun bunch too!

        We really enjoyed our trip to Whitby, the moors and Goathland. Our favorites were Whitby Abbey and Goathland Station where they filmed the Hogsmeade Station for Harry Potter. It still looked like the movie after 20 years! Whitby Abbey was creepy and I loved all the insights into Bram Stoker using it and so many of the landmarks around town in Dracula. It was windy, cold and raining but we still had a great time. Mark, our driver and guide was fantastic. He stopped when we wanted to take photos and he took some of us at sites. Highly recommend him.

        Mark, our tour guide, has been taking trips from York for several years. I took my third trip with him, and was not disappointed as I wasn’t before. He is very knowledgeable and very clear in his directions and his expectations of his tourists, and he tries to make a personal connection with each one of us. I think he has a photographic memory in his recollection of the names of each one of us. I would rate him at 10+

        We had a wonderful day with our guide, Mark. He made our granddaughter feel extra special since her birthday was coming up and she's a huge Harry Potter fan. Riding the train from Goathland (aka Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts Express) was a highlight. Mark is very knowledgeable and truly loves his job!
