It was pouring with rain when we started but decided to brave the weather and we are so glad we did. David (Haw) met us with a friendly smile and we went on a fascinating tour of York. We learnt so much as David's knowledge of the city and UK history was incredible having an answer and story for each question and expanding on things we wanted to know more about. If you get the chance and you want to really see and learn about the city then this tour is a must. 5 stars.

We had tour with David, whose enthusiasm, knowledge and presentation was absolutely fantastic. He was engaging and always making sure to ask how much time people had and what they would prefer to see to make the tour as tailored as he could A truly wonderful experience, would highly recommend

Decided to go on White Rose guided tour on 13th of October 2021. By a stoke of luck we where the only ones to turn up the second stroke of luck was our guide for the afternoon David (Haw). As we where a party of two David he enquired of us of what we wanted to see and how long we had. He then tailored our tour to what we wanted within our time frame. I have been on many escorted tours from South Africa to the Middle East including city tours in Europe. No guide has ever come close to providing the service we received. David's knowledge is truly encyclopaedic coupled with a mastery of engagement. For example between points in our tour he discussed with us his trips to various sites in the UK including our home town citing two historic houses he wanted to visit but did not have time. David is more than an enthusiastic guide he is a wealth of local knowledge as to where to wine and dine. David is no scripted guide he is 100% genuine extremely knowledgeable and has the gift of communication, if he can make my partner interested in what she refers to as old stones and bones he has a unique talent.

David Haw was out guide today, such a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and interesting person. We've done other tours in the past but David showed a completely different perspective on such a historic city. Be ready to walk, out tour was 2 and a half hours and David never stopped walking and talking.
