The North York Moors and Whitby
Rod

An excellent minibus, driven by a friendly, informed guide who provided an ideal amount of information to appreciate the natural landscape and human activities. We had a number of short stops which included examining an abbey ruin, waiting for a steam train to arrive, meandering through two villages to enjoy their local streets, cakes and tea/coffee. There was an appropriate lengthy stop in Whitby with adequate time to explore the abbey and the town and consume the famous fish, chips and mushy peas. A most enjoyable day; thank you guide/driver Steve.

It was a great experience. Our guide lee was very knowledgeable and was very energetic throughout the experience or else it would have been a boring trip.. the co passengers were not very enthusiastic which gain is not upto u i understand. Also, i would have liked if i could spend some more time in whitby.. 2 hours is not enough in whitby if going fr the first time.

Thank you for your review of our North York Moors & Whitby tour, we are disappointed to receive a 3* review although had thought it was a great experience. The itinerary includes a whistle-stop tour of the North York Moors & a 2 hour stop in Whitby allows a taster for visitors to return in the future. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

If you prefer outdoor scenes, visiting North Yorkshire is a must!! 😊 JJ was our tour guide/driver who gave us detailed information about the places we've been to. Also, he made us experience the different side of Yorkshire, far from the urban structures we see when we visit thw town centre. I must say it's one of a kind experience for us!!! 😊😊

weather makes a difference

The weather was really bad so it made a huge difference to your experience. If the weather is going to be that bad they should cancel it as you can't see the moors in thick fog while pouring with rain
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Hi Judith_w, I'm sorry to hear your experience was affected by the weather on the Moors, it's difficult to predict how the weather is going to be from leaving York to arriving in the North York Moors and it's also very changeable throughout the day. I do hope you can join us again when the weather is better. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

Had a great day. Had plenty of stops and driver very knowledgable. Shared lots of information at the stops, as well as when driving round the country side. Had enough time at each stop to see the sights, get a drink or snack, or do a bit if shopping. Always love Whitby and great to visit.
