Alan is a knowledgeable and excellent guide. He has a great tour guide voice as well. His tour was the first thing we did in York, and it gave us a great introduction to the city.

If your in York well worth doing.
Truly excellent tour, with a very knowledgable and amusing local guide, David Haw. A day we’ll spent and found out loads of information and facts, this is a free tour I would have readily paid for.

Free walking tour of York
Sep 2021 • Couples
The Yorkshire guide called David was very knowledgeable and imparted much history and fun anecdotes about the city of York, which he is obviously very passionate about. We couldn't stay for the whole tour which was from 11am to 2.15pm as we were meeting friends at lunchtime but I learned so much about the history of York in such a short period of time David made the tour fun with his Yorkshire self-deprecating humour. Thank you and well done!

Wonderful tour, led by David Haw.

Very thorough. David's love and passion for York, Cathedrals and Abbeys really shone through and he could've talked all day of you'd let him. Really insightful stuff.
