Alfred's instructions on the meeting place were very clear. He was very engaging and brought York to life for us. The route was easy to follow and took us to places we possibly would not have discovered by ourselves. We loved the cross referencing to current affairs and he answered all our questions with interest. Would thoroughly recommend this tour
