Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely evening despite very miserable weather. Sarah sought out the dryest spots in York to tell us her stories of Christmas past and we've come away feeling warm and festive. Thank You Sarah!

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.

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.

Sarah was a brilliant tour guide mixing her expert knowledge with infectious enthusiasm. The fascinating history of York’s association with Christmas was only upstaged by the glorious beauty of the place itself. Highly recommended

Good little tour. Not far to walk - but lots of interesting information to take in. I have done a couple of York tours previously and know the city fairly well, but this was a good choice as it was mostly about Christmas, its; origins and traditions but in the context of the city - and who can't love York? Sarah is very engaging, personable and enthusiastic. Recommended. And it was cold, but I thought that it added to the atmosphere!
