We offer a guided historical tour of the fabulous city of York, the Capital of the North. Step into history with one of our knowledgeable guides and see the amazing sights of the city and hear all the history behind them. Our tours are guided by experienced historians and can be up to 3 hours in length, with breaks for refreshments if you wish, depending on your requirements.
When you book a private tour with us, your dedicated guide will customise the tour to your requirements. Choose your start time, the length of tour you would like, and we can pick you up from any convenient location in York city centre, including your hotel reception. On the tour we will take you to see the major sights of the city, including York Minster, the King's Manor, St Mary's Abbey, the city walls, the Shambles, the Merchant Adventurers Hall and Clifford's Tower. You will hear the history of Kings and Queens, battles and massacres, saints and sinners, and all the things that make this city one of the most fascinating in England. Our guides are experienced historians with local knowledge who pride themselves on being able to answer any question you throw at them (as long as it's about York!)
