City pass was an excellent purchase and saved us a lot of money on the activities we wanted to do. One tip I’d advise is any activity you want to do once you get your city pass is book a time slot for that activity as some of the attractions can get busy.

The last bus of the day was very early, could have been an hour later. You don't really get 24 hours worth of travel. Works out expensive for a family.

We visited York with our 10yr old grandson. We loved the tour and the info given was not only informative but amusing. Definitely recommend it to all.

Alan was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was three hours well spent and an excellent way to kick off a week dedicated to exploring York!

Even though our guide was from Essex he knew his stuff he was funny and informative.
