    This is a stellar day out — beautiful country, comfortable minibus, stops for picture taking, tea, and shopping, and all kinds of history and information from the entertaining Mark, who was wonderful in every way. Saw tons of things, but plenty of time to reflect and relax, too.

    Driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would definitely go on another tour with this company and would recommend it highly to friends and relatives. Only negative was knee space...not the company's fault, just realize if you are tall (5'9" and 6'3") it's not that

    Thanks for the great review Joann and pleased to hear that you enjoyed our Yorkshire Dales trip. I am surprised by your comment about lack of knee space - our vehicles are full-size Minicoach conversions but I suppose some seats do have a bit more space than others. We will have to give a bit more consideration to who sits where if someone is particularly tall. Thanks for raising that and I am pleased it didn't spoil your enjoyment of the day - we hope to see you again sometime!
