A Recent Review of this tour

This tour was conducted on a rainy day. Nevertheless, my husband and I with our enthusiastic guide, Keith, had an interesting and fun time driving through the North York Moors and the quaint little towns en-route to Whitby. Keith was unceasingly providing us with captivating commentaries on the history, beauty and culture of the area. At the Abbey in Whitby, standing in the rain, he was able to bring history back to life for us. Thank you Keith for a great tour. We highly recommend Keith as a guide.
