A great introduction to York and English history. The guide was very articulate and clear with a really good knowledge about the history and the facts. Recommend, mainly if you don't have much time.

We had 24 hours in York and these were the best 3. David's 3:00 tour gave a fantastic historical perspective of this ancient city. We gained a much greater understanding of the city and how it fits in to puzzle of Great Britain. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend this tour. Allen our tour guide is a real character and looks like he could be in a descendant of the vikings. He really knows his history and gave excellent description of the landmarks we were shown.

Enjoyed the walk all around the centre with many, many interesting and entertaining stories and facts about the history of York through the ages. Our guide was very engaging, but could do with a bath and hair wash!
