Was great fun and a good way to see the city

A great way to see York! We're local, but never properly spent a day looking round York and this was a fab way to do it. Would absolutely recommend and are looking forward to doing it elsewhere

Really enjoyed the York trail. Got to see lots of the City and even some parts that I hadn't even noticed before. Would highly recommend the trail if you want to explore. Looking forward to seeing this is more Cities in the future.

Had a fab time doing the Quirks and Snickets trail in York. Time for a pint. Great service from The Secret City. Took less time than expected thanks to a bit of local knowledge. Thoroughly recommended to locals and visitors alike.
