How we work...
...we are truly passionate about what we do, and how we do it!
We hope you will find something of interest on our website – but we can also pull together bespoke itineraries.
The trips or tours vary in price depending on what the tour involves, entrance fees, what we have to pay others and distances travelled. But as a rule of thumb a Driver Guided Day Tour of Yorkshire (9 - 4.30pm) will cost approx £480 - £520. Where we are buying into an existing ‘experience’ we will usually add a small mark up for administration and then add transport costs.
The main business is exclusive "Driver Guided" tours of Yorkshire for up to 4 people, but we are also able to organise tours for larger groups and coach tours, as well as hiring Yorkshire Blue Badge Guides for other work. Popular tours include day tours of the Yorkshire Dales, Bronte Country Tours and tours in the North York Moors & Coast.
Please give us a call on 01943 590009/ 07970 105562 to let us know when you plan to be in the region and which trips you may be interested in. If there is no-one in please leave a message with your telephone number and we’ll ring you back within 48 hours. You’ll understand if we are guiding it would be unfair to take calls. Alternatively, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your requirements, and again we’ll email you back or call you within 48 hours.
Once you’re your trip has been quoted and you are happy with the cost we will send out a written confirmation. Payment can be made by cash, cheque (cleared in advance), paypal invoice or direct transfer.
The official confirmation email will detail the days itinerary, confirming location and pick up times, cost and some idea of an alternate itinerary for outdoor activities if the weather is too bad. There are times when a walk up Ingleborough for example could be too treacherous to attempt.
We do try and run most tours even in inclement weather. As Ranulf Fiennes said “there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!” – we usually have some spare waterproofs or walking poles but would expect appropriate footwear to be worn on walking trips or outdoor based tours.
