I offer a range of Driver Guided Tours of Yorkshire, in a luxury 4x4 vehicle which is private hire licensed for up to 4 passengers.
These personal, chauffeured tours offer the chance to experience Yorkshire and see more than just a city such as York where you maybe staying. There are a range of Tours available depending upon your interested with the advantage that we can be as flexible as you want, stopping whenever you want for refreshments or rest room stops and spending as long as you want at a location.
Popular tours include Herriot Country Tours, Yorkshire Dales Highlights, North York Moors & Coast, Haworth & the Bronte's Tour, Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle, Harrogate & Harewood House, Helmsley & Castle Howard, TV & Film location Tours, The Best of York Tour, Calderdale & Halifax, Whitby & the Yorkshire Coast, Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal, Fossil Hunting Tour, Bolton Abbey & Ilkley, Swaledale & Wensleydale Explorer and Malham & Wharfedale Tour.
As a Blue Badge qualified guide, I can bring this marvellous county to life, interpreting the landscape and explaining Yorkshire's varied history.
A typical day will start with collection from your hotel at around 9am. If we were on a Herriot Country Tour we would then drive out to the market town of Masham, then onto Jervaulx Abbey, stopping at the tea room for refreshments, From here we would continue through beautiful countryside to Middleham with its famous castle, past Aysgarth Falls and Castle Bolton to Hawes.
Here we would stop at the Wensleydale Creamery to sample some delicious Wensleydale Cheese before heading to Hadraw to visit the longest singe drop waterfall in Yorkshire.
We would stop for lunch at Simonstone Hall, a grade II listed building with a fantastic terrace with views down Wensleydale and peacocks roaming the gardens.
After lunch we would ascend over Buttertubs Pass into Swaledale, This is a spectacular route, one Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame describes as "England's only truly iconic road".
From here we will drive past quaint Dales villages through fields with dry stone walls, field barns and wild flower meadows to Reeth. From Reath we visit Richmond with its Norman Castle and Georgian architecture, stopping for afternoon tea before returning our guests back to their accommodation at about 5.30pm.
Predominantly couples, but can take groups of up to 4. Most of my clients are retired but I also run a number of family adventures and can adapt tours to both age, interest and mobility.
I do not provide accommodation - I just provide a luxury, personal, driven tour guided service.
I can advise on accommodation if required.
Unfortunately as a Private Hire Licence holder smoking is not allowed in my vehicle and I cannot take pets unless it is a guide dog.
There is no age restriction on my tours, although I always ask about mobility so that I can plan and adapt itineraries.
