What you'll do

We meet outside York Minster at your pre-booked time for 60 minute tour of the old city for one or two time travellers. We will wind our way around the old city time travelling through 2000 years of history in a city where the Roman, Viking, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian cities all await your discovery. Find your happy as you experience - the intimacy of your own private tour of the city avoiding the crowds - Getting up close to the magnificent historical buildings of old York without having to leave your vehicle - the unique feeling of being transported through the ancient streets in a 100% carbon emissions free vehicle How you enjoy the tour is entirely up to you. Many of our guests enjoy hearing entertaining and interesting stories about the city, its buildings & its most notorious residents including Guy Fawkes,Dick Turpin & the ghosts of Roman soldiers. Other time travellers prefer to play some music, relax and just enjoy the views and each others company. It is all about what you want as you are slowly transported through one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. See York like a local Hotel/accommodation & central pickups available by arrangement
