It was an excellent way to see the city and there was a live commentary by Flora that was just brilliant. It was informative and entertaining, with a lot of knowledge behind it. I'd have been happy to go round again.

Went on the tour within about ten minutes of arriving in York...it was absolutely incredible and as you can use your ticket for 24hrs we went again the next day! Well worth every penny. Our first guide was great,unfortunately can't remember his name(on duty 1.30 ish Fri 19th) and so was Andy, who was our guide on Saturday. Really brilliant,the best thing we did...thank you.

This tour ,with commentary by Mark on Friday 12th November, was excellent, very informative, interesting and delivered in a friendly and fun way. It gave us lots of ideas of places to visit during our stay and we even learnt more about the history of our home town, Nottingham, from Mark. This gentleman is an asset to your company, super clever with a brilliant personality and the ideal person for the job. Thankyou Mark for a wonderful tour.

We have used the hop-on-hop off services in many European cities including St Petersburg together with the small counterpart Petit Trains and have almost always been completely satisfied with them as a way of civing an introduction to the city and highlighting points for further exploration. This one in York is well up there with the best. An interesting commentary and well chosen stopping points and there was never too much time betweeen getting off one and another. Thoroughly recommended.
