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.

A fascinating and gripping tour. Our guide, Alan, was able to transport us back in time with his detailed descriptions and anecdotes. He has an amazing knowledge and passion for the history of York. Well worth it and the best walking tour I have ever taken.

As it was rated the #1 attraction on Tripadvisor in York we had to try it..and it was the best decision of the day. Alan was amazing and we saw more of York than we would have on our own. His knowledge of history was mind boggling and every one of us loved the tour. If you have only a short time in York, do this tour!

The 3 hour tour was fascinating, with the tour leader getting just the right balance between facts and story. You felt he really knew his stuff and had the walk well planned. The 15 minute break for a coffee and a sit-down at half time was very welcome, and another one was needed at the end.

As you'd expect on a free tour, it didn't go into any other paying attractions, but there were lots of pointers to other things to do. So definitely worth doing on day 1 as it puts the other aspects into context. One of the other people on our tour had been before, but thought it worth going again as she had a friend visiting.

Yes, there was a request for donations at the end, and I was happy to give one.

Our guide had a great knowledge on York's history and cultural heritage and explained the main sights much better than many other tours (free or paying) that I have taken previously, with a wealth of historical data, stories and anecdotes contributing to its global understanding. Great to understand the great historical importance of the city of York throughout UK's history.
