    A must do in York!
    We have just finished a guided tour with Michelle. It was AMAZING! Michelle was very knowledgeable and made a cold damp tour very enjoyable.

    A wonderful festive tour of York
    A thoroughly enjoyable 90 minutes spent with Sarah, exploring not just historic York but the history of many of our present day festive traditions some of which date back to Roman and Viking times. Highly recommended.

This was an excellent tour, Sarah our guide told us about the history of Christmas time festivities tied in to the history of York, as we walked around the lights of the city centre. She made sure that younger members of the group felt included too. The walking speed was at just the right pace, and the length of the walk also just right.

I joined this walk with some friends. Although I’ve lived in York for more than 15 years I’d never done a guided city walk before. The tour is about both York and Christmas. I learned many new facts about the city I live in and also how many of our Christmas conditions are a blend of Roman, Viking and other traditions. Sarah is a great story teller. Be warned to wrap up warm for this tour

Sarah was amazing. So engaging you couldn’t fail to enjoy the tour. Been to York many times but she helped us see things we’ve always missed before and the way she weaved the stories from York’s history and Christmas was brilliant.
And she managed to navigate the very busy streets and still find corners where we could hear her.
Would definitely recommend this tour.
Thank you Sarah. X

Even though I'm fairly local and thought I knew York well, I still learnt lots of things I didn't know. Sarah was an excellent guide who made her stories interesting and funny. Despite the bitter cold, she kept everyone's attention very well. A most enjoyable 90 mins, will definitely recommend to others.

We enjoyed the Christmas walking tour very much. Sarah was informative and had many interesting stories and facts which brought Christmas in York to life. It was lovely to walk around the city under the Christmas lights and hear about York of old and what helped to shape Christmas as we know it. Loved the chocolate orange too!

If you fancy a treat, make sure you go on this guided walk around York. It’s lead by Sarah, who has a mine of fascinating facts, delivered in an interesting way, about the origins of the Christmas festive period dating back to the Romans, Vikings, Georgians, Victorians and beyond, in York. This tour will really put you in the Christmas spirit.

Brilliant, funny, informational walking tour.

Sarah’s stories seamlessly wove Christmas into the history of York, from the Romans through to Terry’s Chocolate Oranges (my husband’s favourite part) via Rudolph, monks and and mince pies we thoroughly enjoyed our sparkling introduction to this beautiful city. We are thoroughly convinced that York really is the ‘most Christmassy city’! and we will be back 🌟🌟🌟

Sarah was fantastic, full of knowledge & enthusiasm. It was lovely to here about York & it’s links to Christmas .
Sarah also recommended a perfect little place to eat after we found it difficult to find a good cafe for lunch. We used it the following day, the breakfast on the next.
Thank you Sarah. Merry Christmas x

We booked this tour as my sister was visiting from Derby and doesn’t know the city well. We were part of a group of around 12 which was an ideal size and Sarah had us all introduce ourselves which broke the ice nicely. Sarah is an ideal guide for this type of tour as she is a very bubbly, enthusiastic person just brimming with information about York which she clearly loves. She is also brilliant at engaging with the children in the group so that they didn’t feel that this was adults only. It’s a walk at a gentle pace so good for older people and although I have lived in York for many years, I certainly learned some new things. Oh, and Sarah also brought a Terrys Chocolate Orange with her for (Covid safe!) sharing! Highly recommended!
