Very informative tour, very friendly bus driver when we got on the bus. The tour guide was very good at his job, although we were on the bus mostly ourselves he had made us feel welcome.

Went with family to see the Christmas tour and it was amazing! Not one to miss! Very informative but also full of humour and fun. The actors/tour guides were brilliant, would 100% recommend!

A fun alternative to the usual excellent guided tours. This one had actors as characters from the past, telling us about the history of York with a Christmas theme. Would definitely recommend.

The bus tour, although quite expensive, was very informative and gives you a great History of York. I would really recommend the outlay as it is value for money, and as a hop on hop off it is a good way to get around. We had a live tour guide, Chris, who was very knwoledgeable and gave us more information than the audio taour we have had on a previous visit. All the staff were very friendly and we had a lovely time.

The route around York is quite short but interesting. Go on a tour with a live commentary for the best experience but all tours have an audio guide, with no need to use headphones, if your content with English

Thank you for your review. York has 2000 years of history, so there is quite a lot for our guides to talk about. We hope you will come back to see us again on your next visit.
