The tour was much longer than we anticipated which was fine with us Lots of history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to areas of town that we would not have known about. Good tour of the best part of the city walls.

In two hours you will learn a lot about the history of York, get to walk on top of the walls, ask questions, and you can't beat the price. All the guides are locals who love their city.
