In all my travels I have never had the good fortune to meet a guide as likable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject as Johnnie Briggs. Johnny does not talk AT you, he has a conversation with you, at the end of which you realize you've learned a lot.
We engaged his services for 3 days. The first day he enthralled us with 'The Passionate Brontes' guiding us around Haworth and making the Brontes come to life for us. He seems to know everyone in the village and gave us great tips on where to eat and who we should talk to re: the Brontes.
The second day he took us out on the moors. He went to the trouble of borrowing a pair of Wellies for my friend who didn't have the right footwear. We hiked to Top Withens (probable site of Wuthering Heights) and he seemed to enjoy it every bit as much as we did. One thing you have to understand about Johnnie is that he's a poet and a romantic at heart.
The third day he drove us all over Yorkshire, showing us more Bronte sites, historic buildings, stopping at a local Church sale and a pub that had excellent food (where he knew the Chef!) and then he drove us through a part of James Herriot's Yorkshire Dales.
Johnnie is the complete package, he gives great value for your money and it's hard not to love him. Don't fight it, we didn't!
