Owner description: Stepping through the streets of York is like taking a tour through all of England’s history. On our 3 hour free walking tour you will see the sights and hear the stories of this fascinating city. Tours leave every day at 11am and 3pm (3pm tours in Summer only) and also at 1pm Fridays and Saturdays from near the West entrance of York Minster, opposite Cafe Concerto. Just look for our guides in the blue White Rose York tee-shirts.

We hadn't booked but arrived just in time to join a mixed group, taking the numbers to 16. Alan is the perfect guide. His knowledge is incredible and his delivery is faultless. We were accompanied by my ageing in-laws so the trip was probably a bit slower than usual but the time went very quickly despite being on our feet for not far off three hours. We were all very impressed and have already recommended White Rose to others. There is no charge for the tour, instead Alan asks that you pay what you feel the tour is worth. On this basis, Alan should earn a fortune!

Had a great time on this free tour, we covered plenty of areas and heard some interesting stories about York (did not realise that a very famous chocolate bar originated there!). The tour provided me a few places to check out afterwards byself including the city walls and York Minster.

I've completed many tours for tips and they work by the guide being so good you can't not want to tip.

Our guide was not the highly praised Alan but cheery Stephen who did an OK job (I'm being a little harsh, he was good at times). He needs to work on his story telling a bit more and be mindful that with non-British guests he shouldn't make too many obscure British cultural references that won't be understood.

We had a pleasant tour, learnt a bit, saw areas of York we might have missed so are generally happy we took the tour (we're just a little disappointed it wasn't up to the expectations set by Alan's high praise)

We had a great 3 hour tour with our guide Alan. He put a lot of enthousiasm and energy into the tour and was very knowledgable about the history and sights of York. Truly worth your time if you go to York!

A new company but certainly one to look out for. The guide was very knowledgeable and made history live for us. We got a welcome break half way through the 3 hour tour and then, refreshed, set off again all agog for more. Of all the walking tours of York, I'd put this one top of the list.
