We had THE BEST guided tour from Alfred. I would say that the tour was definitely different from what we were expecting - but in the best way possible. And maybe describing it in more detail than that would be giving away too much - if you're considering a tour, do it. And if you're lucky enough to get Alfred, it'll be the best tour you've had. Alfred had a clear passion for York, and encyclopedic knowledge of the place - and he used these to make the tour so incredibly interesting (even for people like me who aren't history buffs). We learned so much, and Alfred's love of York was endearing. I think if we'd have sliced him in two, he'd have the workd 'York' written through him like a stick of seaside rock. But you wouldn't do that to him - because he's lovely! :)
Friendly loading process followed by a really well presented tour, the boat captain had a lovely presentation style and a laid back attitude. We were relaxed by his style...and I bet that he tells every tour that this is his first turning of the boat in a narrower part of the river, but it's charming.
Our guide Alfred was extremely knowledgeable about York and its history and he made our visit such a lovely time. His historic background was a big plus et we learnt a lot. The tour was well-balanced between explanations and walks. Highly recommended
Absolutely Fantastic tour! Alfred was our tour guide and was truly incredible, the best tour we have been on. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and at all times kept up engaged. He made the tour fun and interesting! Highly recommend.
It was a well organised excursion despite the weather it was very enjoyable. The crew were fantastic and provided a brilliant service with a first class guide and tour of the rover ouse and its bridges and surrounding areas.
