Excellent insight into the hidden history of Scarborough. Jonathan very kindly took us out today even though the season has officially ended. It was just the four of us (2 kids aged 6&8) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour was informative and fun. It was really interesting hearing about the darker side of the seaside town. The girls became... More

Jonathan our guide was fun and very informative. Our children (6,8 and 10) all gained a great deal from it. Our reluctant walker was running around with excitement for almost an hour and a half, spotting clues and answering questions. A very well organised and entertaining afternoon. Thanks

We had a great time on our horrid history walk. We were very lucky that our 2 families were the only bookings for the afternoon walk, mind you, with 2 mums and 7 children it still felt busy. Jonathan entertained us with stories and information about smugglers past. He clearly knows his stuff. He was able to impart his knowledge... More

I took my ten year old Grandson Alex on the horrible history walk. Jonathan took us to places we didn't know existed and gave us a fascinating incite into the world of the smugglers in the 17th century. Alex thoroughly enjoyed finding the clues to the questions, we all had a fantastic time, and would recommend this tour to anyone... More

Jonathon met us at the hotel and took a group of historians from Quinton, Birmingham on a superb guided tour of Scarborough and surrounding area. Jonathon was charming and very well presented, his knowledge of the area was superb and his presentation was both informative and absorbing. The morning tour was very reasonably priced and was certainly value for money.... More

26 of us had an enjoyable tour on Sunday. Informative for those of us who thought we knew Scarborough well and a great introduction for others . Excellent value for money as the tour lasted over 2 hours rather than the advertised 1 1/4 hours. We were all adults and Jonathan tailored the walk for our interests, e.g. including Anne... More

We (the Dobson party) were collected from our holiday accommodation by Jonathan and Paul who took us on a tour of the local sights tailor made to suit our needs. The whole day/tour was beyond our expectations as was the 3 course lunch we had in Thornton-le-Dale. Jonathan's local knowledge is second to none and what he doesn't know he... More
