Jonathan was an excellent your guide as he led our group around the streets of Scarborough, showing us the sights and telling us of the history and doing all of this in a fun and entertaining way. I would thoroughly recommend this tour, especially for school/youth groups.

Thank you so much to Jonathan for entertaining our party of school children during our trip to Scarborough. We spent the night solving clues and trying to find hidden gems in the back streets and alleys. Jonathan captured the children's attention, kept them interested for an hour and a half and all came away having had lots of fun and... More

We have just returned moments ago from this amazing tour. The tour guide, Jonathan, appeared in a customs officer outfit from history and the children were automatically hooked. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Scarborough and brought this history to life through use of a competition for the children, whereby he divided them into two groups and asked...

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
