Enjoyed the quiz even though the Scouse Seadogs won but only just! Big thanks for organising tour to suit weather & being flexible for our needs we look forward to joining you... More

Last night myself and nine friends had the horrible history tour around Scarborough's old town. Aimed at children, of which we had only one with us, we all had a really great evening. We walked down streets which I as a local have been down before, but things were pointed out to us which I was totally unaware of. We... More

The walk was excellent - extremely interesting and my kids (8 & 10) loved it. I found out lots about the history of Scarborough I didn't know and found lots of places I had walked by and not noticed before.

We went on this tour with Jonathan today and cannot recommend it highly enough 😀 We went with our children, 9 and 7, our niece, 12 and our friends who have children of similar ages. From the start the children were captivated by the Customs Officers story and the competitive nature of the tour! We went off at a pace... More

It was great to run the walk during the February half term holiday, especially as I hadn't been able to run it since May 2015 due to my work in Dorset last year!

What a super afternoon activity for children and adults alike. Jonathan's tales of smugglers and hauntings, interspersed with interesting historical facts of the area kept us all captivated. A true passion for his art, Jonathan is engaging and the tour for a family of four is exceptional value for money.
