We really enjoyed our tour with Mad Alice: the 90 minutes walk through York is absolutely worth its price. Mad Alice is really entertaining, customer oriented and hilariously funny. She is an amazing performer and she shares lots and lots of historical bits as well as “dark” tales about York. We definitely recommend her!
Probably the best tour guide we’ve ever had. Incredibly funny and informative and she somehow memorized every single person’s (about 40 of us) name before we arrived. Great way to see the city!
