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!
