To engage, entertain, educate, enrich and inspire - these are my goals whenever I lead my guests on a guided tour. It gives me immense satisfaction to introduce visitors to the wonderful county of Yorkshire and to sprinkle their experience with storytelling - stories of local history, local legends and folklore, local characters, local food and drink, local music (I'm always ready to sing a song!) and to inject some fun and humour as well.

Whether travelling alone, with your family or with a group, I can provide walking tours, coach tours or an exclusive chauffeur-driven tour together with one of my driver-guide colleagues.

Yorkshire is Britain's largest county, with a wealth of historic tradition, an abundance of spectacular scenery, two national parks, vibrant cities, picturesque villages, grand stately homes and of course the famous Yorkshire pudding - all waiting to be discovered by you!

Personal Interests:

Special Interests:


My background is as a Modern Languages teacher (French and German) and as Principal of an English Language School (EFL) and I have organised and led tours for students both in the UK and in France.

Ghosts, Murders & Mysteries

York is the most haunted city in Europe with over 500 reported sightings and some great stories!
