    This is a great way to see York and learn something of its history and its characters.
    The trip lasts an hour and you can leave and re-join the 'bus at various points around the route.
    There is guide on board who gives a live commentary throughout the tour. Our guide was Daniel who was very knowledgeable and hilarious. He tried to engage the passengers for the whole of the trip.
    Highly recommended!

    App was a little clunky at times, a very small portion of the route was closed, but managed to get back on track following the map.
    Fantastic value for the price and wouldn’t have seen half the things we did if just strolling.
    Definitely recommend

    Despite inclement weather, my husband and I joined a small group of tourists on a free guided walk round York. This walk had been recommended by the Tourist Office and runs daily at 1100 and 1500 hours. The tour lasted about two hours and throughout, the guide ALAN offered a very comprehensive, informative, and often amusing, view of York’s history from pre-Roman times to date. We visited most of the main historical sites inside the city walls. We both felt that we saw many areas which we would have missed on our own, and this has encouraged us to return during the next few days of our break to visit those places in greater detail. Included in the walk were The Minster; the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall; Clifford’s Tower; various gates in the city walls; the Shambles; Roman garrison remains and the locations linking to Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin, and Henry VIII’s brutal suppression of the Pilgrimage of Grace. We can highly recommend this tour and our guide.

    I wanted to book the evening cruise as I thought I’d get the best of both worlds by starting in daylight and finishing at night, maybe with a lovely sunset inbetween. No sunset sadly, but I did see a kingfisher fly past a few times! I’m afraid I can’t remember the name of our skipper but he had a Viking look about him and he was very informative and funny. One thing that could be improved is communication about pre booking/buying on the day/when to turn up as we decided to wing it and just buy a ticket when the boat arrived and were waiting for about 45 mins as we saw a sign that said to turn up early but we didn’t actually need to. Also bring a coat if you want to sit on the roof!

    Was given this as a gift . I really enjoyed the whole experience. Paula is very knowledgeable - and patient! She explains and demonstrates things very clearly.
    I learned a lot which I hope to put into practice. Would recommend the tour to anyone.

    Jade was our guide and she was great. We were half hour late due to St Giles Fair traffic issues but she very rapidly rejigged her planned route to get in everything we had wanted to see. So glad we did it as it was a great introduction to the City. As a student at Oxford, Jade had a real hands on knowledge of both current and particularly historic facts about the key landmarks and little nooks and crannies. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
