Highly recommend this walking tour with Alfred as a must when visiting York. Both me and my partner experienced today a tour with Alfred. We had only been in York for 1 hour when we met Alfred. Although York was new to us Alfred made us and the other group members feel very welcome from the get-go. Alfred was very engaging and knowledgeable, which made us both want to naturally listen to his every word. Thank you Alfred, the time and money was well spent in our opinion! 👌
