          Wonderful experience
          This was a great day with Mark our guide! This was a small mini bus tour with 13 people. The company is actually one bus and 4 people that run the company so they are very focused on a good experience. Mark was absolutely fantastic in his narrative across the trip with some one hour rides from place to place and he told us so many interesting things (like how much houses costs in areas) as well as detailed long ago century commentary. His coordination of the steam train experience was amazing. Essentially you ride two stops about 45 minutes leaving from Whitby to Goathland and those wanting to ride the train he gets you situated and those that done drive to the next two stops. He took care of all the details to include getting tickets, getting our seats and meeting us exactly at the train station pick up point and made sure he took photos for all of us along the way limited need for selfies! He stopped the bus in the Moors for us to get a lovely photo of the purple heather. He made sure we got afternoon tea in Goathland. Whitby was crowded but Mark suggested a fabulous restaurant that we ate at. This tour is fairly relaxed and you need to enjoy the scenery and history and enjoy the guide. While there was time driving, he made it a fabulous day and I wound recommend this for travelers interested in getting out of cities and seeing the sheep and landscapes.

          Excellent, fun, informative and friendly
          This was a really well organised trip, conducted well with skill, knowledge and a friendly manner by Mark. We hit all the sites on time and with Mark’s excellent advice, hints and information to hand.

          Great region, great tour, great guide!
          It was a great experience: John S was a great host, an excellent driver and a first class guide. The weather was not great but still my wife and I enjoyed this day thoroughly. We learned a lot about North Yorkshire, the land and its history. I recommend it highly to all visitors to York who would like to have a broader picture of this important English region

          Great tour
          Fantastic tour, lots of great information and stops. Be aware there is no parking near the pick up point so plan ahead. Minibus was comfortable, had wifi and our tour guide was amazing.

          Glad we did this trip!
          We learned so much about Yorkshire’s history, geology, and agriculture from our guide, Chris. The scenery of the Dales is stunning.

          Train visit to Aidensfield on a Wonderful Railway.
          The Wife and I went on the train from Whitby to visit the village where "Heartbeat," had been filmed. Only a couple of stops, through beautiful countryside for half an hour or so. Lovely old steam train and carriages from the 1950s and 1970s. Lovely, as it felt like I was on the train that took me to school 55 years ago! All the stations are lovely, and well maintained. The staff, who I think are mainly volunteers, were helpful, informative, and dressed in the uniforms of the day. Absolutely superb trip. Would recommend this highly, and it cost only £50 for our tickets. Worth every penny.

          Brilliant day out
          Just had a wonderful day exploring the Yorkshire Dales guided by the exceptional John. His knowledge of the area was impressive, providing fascinating insights into the history, geology, and culture of the Dales. We visited picturesque villages, stunning landscapes and hidden gems that we wouldn't have discovered on our own. John's passion for the Yorkshire Dales was infectious, and he ensured everyone had a memorable experience. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales with a knowledgeable and personable guide. with John as our guide - also listen carefully as there’s quiz on the bus heading back to York!

          Thoroughly enjoyable trip
          Our driver Mark really made this trip, his knowledge is off the scale, it he made it extremely interesting. It was just the right amount of time spent at each location. The views were breathtaking, and the highlight, was the stop off to the fictional Darrowby!

          A tour absolutely worthwhile if you are in the region.
          The sceneries of Yorkshire dales are spectacular! We all enjoyed the trip tremendously. Mark, our excellent driver and tour guide, was very dedicated. He made extra efforts to maximize what we could see during the 8-hour tour. Absolutely worthwhile!

          Excellent day out! Yorkshire Dales are beautiful and ACGS sites lovely!
          Excellent!! Guide/driver (Mark) was excellent and personable. He learned everyone's name (16 of us) and some info on all of us. He gave us interesting information and stopped for photos at some filming sites from All Creatures Great and Small. We visited Grassington which is the filming location for Darrowby. Some of us ate at what is used as the Drover's Arms.

          Beautiful, comfortable, and fun trip with Mark through the idyllic countryside. So charming!
          Excellent experience! Mark is an excellent communicator and very pleasant. He immediately shows care by attempting to learn names and home towns of everyone on the bus. He is extremely attentive and wants to make the trip as comfortable as possible. He has excellent command of the information and is able to add humor to his knowledge of the Yorkshire Dales. We made multiple stops on our trip and he was clear but not pushy about how much time we had before we needed to get going. Great recommendations for lunch and places to potty. Truly works to make it a memorable and enjoyable experience.

          First-class tour of Yorkshire
          Our guide, Chris, was excellent. Great commentary and knowledge. The day was well-timed out between driving and stops and without any delays. First class experience. One small thing....the picture shown at the left of this page was NOT included in the tour. I obviously had the impression it would be. Small disappointment. On the other hand, stopping at Bolton Abbey was a bonus!

        I booked a tour through BOB Holidays for a day trip from York to the Moors and town of Whitby. This is a family owned business and the driver and his wife could not have been more responsive and delightful. I mistakenly booked the trip from Harrogate (not realizing that was a town 45 min away) instead of York city center where we were staying. I realized this the night before we were to be picked up. I used the message feature on the BOB website and got an instant response from Lucy (owner) even though it was well after business hours. She had already determined that we were not in Harrogate and not to worry. We booked a small group tour as there were 8 of us and itturned out to be just our group. We were picked up by a small luxury minibus that was clean, comfortable, plenty of space. Our driver Alan wore a headset so we could all hear his wealth of information and stories. We learned so much about North Yorkshire and he was willing to tailor our day trip according to what we wanted to see. To rent a car for the day, large enough for 8 people, would have cost us more than it cost for 300-400 dollars more than booking a small group tour. We would have had a very difficult time driving in the Moors, not to mention we would have definitely been lost....unexpected road closures etc. I highly encourage skipping a car rental and booking a small group day trip. I love to support the local business owners as well. I highly recommend BOB Holidays -- which is Best Of Britain.
