Great guide (Dan).  Brought the history of the city to life.  Saw all major sights in 2 hours.  The tour is tips only and Dan certainly deserved his and everyone seemed to give him £5-10.

The tour is quite fun and interesting we booked it as a group on a saturday and despite the elements it was very good and the weather didn't matter much (I'm sure it would be better with a sunny day, if any in York)

The tour is tip based, so they really try hard to give a good tour, one of the best tours I've taken in the UK.

It was a very enjoyable experience, I highly recommend it! It's a great way to know a city you are visiting for the first time. You get a very good idea of the historic importance of the place and notice little details you could miss otherwise.

Decided to do the footprints tour whilst on a long weekend stay in York.

"Hindley" Dan was our guide. He was a great guy. Full of knowledge which he pitched in a fun and conversational style which grabbed everybody's attention. You could see he really enjoyed doing it.

2 hours flew by even though it was raining and cold. Learnt a lot about the history of the city and saw sights we never would have see on our own.

No pressure whatsoever to leave a "tip" at the end but we did and it was worth every penny.

Really good fun. Thanks for a good time.

Joined Alex for this walking tour on Friday 10th January and found it so interesting and informative that the 2 hours flew by. We saw places we had not previously discovered on earlier trips to York and learned more historical detail about places we thought we knew about. If the other tour leaders are as pleasant and enthusiastic as Alex I would recommend these free tours.
We were more than happy to "tip" (there was no pressure to do so) and I considered the tour well worth taking.
