Things to Do, Tours & Guides
City, Vale and Mountain Adventures
We offer guided walks in and around the beautiful and amazing city of York, and also walks in the hills and mountains of northern England, including the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Lake District.
York is amazing. King George VI once said, 'The history of York is the history of England'. Well he wasn't wrong. The city has been home to Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans. It has been the 'capital' of the north and has been a centre for trade, commerce and power through the centuries. Today York is a vibrant, modern city with one of the best windows on the past that you will ever find.
Join me on a tour of my fascinating home city to learn more about its history and what has made it the city it is today. Walk in the footsteps of Roman soldiers and marauding Vikings, pass through medieval streets, stand in the shadow of one of the world's great cathedrals and take in the view from the city walls.
Our two classic city tours include the 'Highlights of York' tour and the 'History of York' tour. Both of these tours take you to many of the famous landmarks of the city and some less well known ones, with a little more emphasis on historical detail on the history tour. We also offer tours along York's two rivers, the Ouse and the Foss, taking you to some of the quieter and less visited, yet fascinating areas of the city. All our tours are aimed at small private groups, lasting from 2-3 hours, but can be adapted to suit your needs in terms of length, itinerary, start/finish points and start times.
City, Vale and Mountain Adventures also offer guided walks in the upland and lowland regions of northern England. Whether you are looking to take in several mountain summits, spend a day or more exploring the moorlands or take in the scenery of the vast areas of beautiful lowland countryside or coastline, then we can help you. Our specialist areas include the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Wolds, the Vales of York and Pickering, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. Walks in the upland areas are led by a qualified mountain leader.
