If I was on who wants to be a millionaire and there were questions about York, Romans, British Cathedrals, films of the 80s, then David Haw is your phone a friend

Great way to see the city, we spent 2-3 hours having a wander around the historical parts of York with facts and stories thrown in at every turn

We’ve done numerous walking tours around the world and this was up there

Definitely give one a go, you will see parts of the city you’ve never seen before, and if you get Dave Haw then all the better….. btw, these tours are never free, you always have to tip, which we’ve never minded doing….. but you knew that

“Let’s have a wander over here”

Our tour lasted 2 hours and was excellent every step. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and his passion for his subject was clear. The details he shared really made us appreciate the landmarks (big and small), we visit d. This was the the first city tour I’d done but will definitely use this company when I do another city break.

Thanks for an enjoyable and fascinating 2.5 hours. David was our tour guide and his character made the experience, a fountain of knowledge, not facts just spouted out parrot fashion but he knows his stuff inside out, answering any questions and tailoring the tour to our group. I’m sure David is a local legend as he seemed to know everyone!

As David rightly made clear at the beginning of the tour that it’s a free tour but voluntary donations are more than welcome if deserved, and he certainly deserves it as we learnt lots, visited several places and noticed a lot more than if we hadn’t joined the tour, our children (11, 13) enjoyed it too and can remember all his funny stories afterwards. Would highly recommend it if history is your thing!

It was a very amusing walk. The tour guide (David) gave us unique information about the history of the city. Don’t miss this free tour.
