York: Private Bespoke History Walking Tour
- Pickup available
- Duration: 3 hours
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! :)
This was a really unusual and very interesting tour - it was a great sweep through history demonstrated by the City architectural remains - we particularly enjoyed the parallels the guide drew between Henry V111’s split from Europe and Brexit. Alfred our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, quirky and passionate about his subject. We did several tours while in York and this was by far the best.
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.
Alfred is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We really enjoyed the tour with him during which we could learn York history and completely fall in love with this magnificent city ❤️
