"You are so professional and can deliver information with absolute ease. We have all had an amazing day." I was delighted to receive this compliment from a happy group as I love my job, from the initial planning of a suitable tour through to the day itself. It is a pleasure to be able to show off this fantastic county. There really is something for everyone and I can help put together the perfect itinerary. Local knowledge means I can show you parts of the county you might not have known about or thought to visit.
Whether you are travelling in a group, family or on your own, I can offer step on coach guiding, walking tours or, working with a York based chauffeur, your own private tour of our spectacular county. I am particularly interested in creating family friendly tours suitable for all ages and interests. I also design tours for universites to help with their studies, for example I had a group from the US studying pilgrimage and we visited inspirational places all over Yorkshire - from York Minster to Whitby via the 12 Apostles! I have also carried out tours for speciality groups such as Theatre Clubs and Arts Societies which are always great fun and I am happy to tailor a tour to suit specific interests.
Yorkshire is packed full of beautiful scenery, vibrant cities, delightful towns and villages, spectacular ruins, grand stately homes, art, culture and characters - please get in touch to discover all of this and more!
