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 .

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

I did this walk with my mum and 3year old daughter. We all found it fascinating. My daughter really enjoyed finding the answers to the quiz and holding the 'Skull of Death' as her reward. The Guide was brilliant and very informative. A great way to find out the history of scarborough in a fun and educational way. Would recommend... More

Hello everybody. We booked a tea tour to Thornton le dale. We had the most marvellous time. Granted the afternoon tea was unbelievably scrummy, but we had real fun with Jonathan who is a brilliant guide. He is fun personified, totally infectious with his wealth of knowledge. What an absolute find. (I think that's thanks to trip advisor too where... More
