Do not hesitate to book Sally - you will have a great time!
"We usually book Withlocals whenever we travel abroad. Due to travel restrictions we thought we would try the experience at home and it did not disappoint. We live near to York and visit many times over the year. We thought we knew most things about York - we didn't. We learnt so much from Sally. Her passion and enthusiasm for York is evident and her knowledge is incredible. All the interesting things we never noticed before and became fascinated by. We have never walked the walls and it was a beautiful way to see York from a different angle. You will learn a lot, be fascinated by York's history and be given great recommendations for shopping and restaurants/bars. There are many places we want to try now that we would never have found ourselves. Plus we had the tastiest pork pies ever! Thank you Sally xx"EmmaAbout local SallyYork, June 2021
When in York: go with Sally!
"We did a full 3 hours walk in York with Sally and had a wonderful time. First we did the walls of York, which are beautiful and loaded with history; then Sally took us through the narrow alleys of York and told us of the stories behind it. She also gave us tips on which bars and restaurant you best could visit and most important: which to avoid. Sally knows a lot about York, things you won't find in any tourist books. So: when in York: go with Sally!"FransAbout local SallyYork, May 2022
A Lovely Fun Introduction to York
"We had a great couple of hours with Gayle last Sunday morning. She is full of quirky information about the City and tailored our experience to focus on our interests viz food and drink, showing us some interesting and unusual places to indulge. We covered pretty much the whole of York centre and finished up in a bar together having a well earned drink. Her knowledge of rum is pretty staggering too if, like us, you are aficionados! Highly recommend her for her energy and fun!"CliveAbout local GayleYork, September 2021
