Feels like this is a bit of a fair weather tour. As in the cold, wet and windy you simply spend too much time standing still for this to be enjoyable. Rating three as I’m sure I would have enjoyed if it was sunny... Very...More

A great introduction to York and English history. The guide was very articulate and clear with a really good knowledge about the history and the facts. Recommend, mainly if you don't have much time.

We had 24 hours in York and these were the best 3. David's 3:00 tour gave a fantastic historical perspective of this ancient city. We gained a much greater understanding of the city and how it fits in to puzzle of Great Britain. Highly recommended.
