Yorktour is the longest-established walking tour company in York, and has been welcoming visitors to the city for over forty years. We provide a bespoke service for pre-booked groups and individuals in a range of languages including French, German, Russian, Italian and Mandarin. We also have experience presenting tours in clear, uncomplicated English ideal for English language students and school groups.

Our itineraries are devised to suit each visitor, but would typically include:

The medieval Shambles and Snickleways
The ancient city walls
The Roman fortress and abbey ruins of the Museum Gardens … and of course the magnificent Minster (all of our guides are fully trained and accredited to take visitors into the cathedral).

Yorktour guides are passionate about the city and aim to give a well-informed, informal and entertaining experience. We’re not lecturers - we’re locals: and are happy to advise on the many shops, restaurants and other attractions you may wish to visit during your stay.


‘Your tour was really enjoyable, genuinely interesting, coherent and funny at the same time with everything coming nicely together. Despite the rather adverse weather all the guests loved it and have asked me to pass on their thanks. So, once again many thanks for a very special experience and please rest assured that myself and my colleagues will have no reservations in recommending your company wholeheartedly….’
