    Fab tour Daria/Dahlia was funny and engaging. A good mix of story types. My sister booked the tour as part of my 30th birthday trip to York and this tour was a definite highlight. Would recommend.

    The best ghost tour in York! (We have been on many)
    Myself and my partner live in York and mad Alice provides the most brilliant experience of haunted York. She is fantastic, engaging and this tour is great for adults and children alike! We went once and brought the whole family the second time!
    Well worth the money and such a fun and educational experience!
    10/10 would recommend booking this.
    Can be cold (great British weather) so wrap up warm!!

    Excellent guide - made it very interesting and delivered with humour. Just about the right length on a very cold but sunny day.

    Really enjoyed the tour. The witch guide was informative and animated which kept the pace going really well. Amazed at how many hidden places there were on York. We were however disappointed in the potion making part. You basically just sat in a cold room and watched a video then we're given a drink. Would recommend the walking tour but not so much the potion making part.

    We did our North York Moors and Whitby Day Tour from York by Mountain Goat on a cold and rainy November morning. As we were the only ones doing the tour, our driver/guide Lee picked us up from our guest house at 9. Lee gave a fascinating commentary on the way with lots of interesting titbits, explaining where we were going and a history of each place. Our first stop of the tour was Helmsley, a picturesque market town on the banks of the River Rye for a quick coffee.
    From Helmsley, we travelled into the national park itself, famed for the stunning views of heather moorland, pine forests and green rolling hills interspersed with wooded river valleys, religious ruins and timeless villages. It came as a pleasant surprise that there were entire villages with communities living harmoniously in the heart of the national park. Lee gave us an interesting insight about the various crosses, ruined castles and ancient burial mounds dotting the park.
    We stopped at Whitby for lunch, a traditional seaside town, where there is a wide choice of places to eat with fish and chips being the local favourite. There are a number of things to see and do such as visiting the dramatic ruins of Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for the novel ‘Dracula’, seeing Captain Cook’s boat, Byland’s Abbey and taking a stroll along the harbour with its quaint shops.
    We stopped next in Goathland, for a brief stop at the Goathland Station, which featured in the world renowned Harry Potter movies as Hogsmead.
    Our only regret was not traveling via steam train across the moors to Pickering. The train doesn’t run in the winter months. All in all, it was a fantastic trip with wonderful memories forged for a lifetime. Thank you, Lee and Mountain Goat.

    The whole trip was nice, visiting ruins, small villages and visiting Whitby was awesome. Should have spent more time walking in Whitby rather than queuing in the fish and chip shops.

    I really enjoyed discovering the diversity of independent restaurants in York. Although I live in York, there were places I hadn't previously noticed. Marion was a great tour guide. She paced the tour very well and engaged brilliantly with the group.
