A Recent Review of this tour

Michael provided us with a custom 9-hour tour of James Herriot country in the Yorkshire Dales region. He was magnificent! Michael picked us up at our B&B, was very well prepared in advance, took us to multiple unique locations of interest, and even sang the theme to the James Herriot TV series! We were exceptionally pleased with the attention to detail and accommodation provided by Michael. The day made for a life-long memory of our first visit to England. Thank You, Michael! Don & Mary, USA.
