My wife and I joined the free tour hosted by David yesterday and we cannot say enough positive things about our guide and White Rose’s approach to their tours. David’s knowledge of the city’s (and by extension, the country’s) history is truly exceptional and his passion for his subject is contagious. Being a big history fan myself, I was well-pleased and although my wife isn’t as big of a fan as me, David still imparts his knowledge very skilfully in a brilliant story-telling manner so as to ensure all of his audience is catered for; as a result she had a great afternoon as well. Clearly well-known throughout the city all the way from stall traders to the Dean of York Minster himself, you really feel as though you are being taken around by a man who is very much a part of the city’s furniture, all delivered in the proper Yorkshire drawl! To anyone reading my review I would also point out that for the ten rather mean-spirited and very much ‘missing-the-point’ reviews in the ‘terrible’ section, there are over 100 excellent reviews for each of these, just in case you are a stats fan!
Thank you David and White Rose for an entertaining, educating and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Keep up the good work!!
