We had 4 days in York, we had the pass for 3 days it is well worth the money, excellent value, everywhere we went we were made to feel really welcome, hard to pick a favourite but I think the North Yorkshire Moors Railway just pips the others to the post 🥰

We always enjoy the hop on hop off tours. We’ve now done York, Cardiff, Glasgow, and London. Great information and super convenient transport to all of the places we want to be!

It was fabulous lovely weather a fantastic guide with multiple stops of great interest. We even used it the next day too
