This National Park is amazing, we had fantastic views of the countryside and the small towns where we stopped were so pretty. Our guide Matt was fantastic, he evidently has thought about what to tell us at the right time of the trip, he was well informed, lively, funny and very kind. I recommend.

Great introduction to the moors, and life in Yorkshire
Caryn_B
, Jun 2022
Matt was a great guide; knowledgeable, informative. I loved the scenery; the Yorkshire moors were on my bucket list. I loved seeing the heather blooming, and the sheep grazing. But I also enjoyed seeing the ruins of two abbeys, the small cities, walking cobblestone streets, and seeing the North Sea. It was an amazing time. Highly recommend!

Lee was very knowledgeable about the Yorkshire moors, architecture, the history of England, and the role of the Yorkshire Catholic monks and nuns in the creation of the British empire. He was able to communicate it in an engaging and funny way. He had perceptive insights into the lore of the region and it’s literary and cultural traditions. He took care of his customers and was very friendly and responsible. I would definitely recommend this tour. The price was very reasonable too and we were happy. We felt we saw a lot in just a few hours.

Great tour of Yorkshire moors and historical sites
Echo_C
, May 2022
The itinerary was well-thought through, which covered a variety of landscape and historical sites. We went through desolate moors, ruined abbeys, historical villages and seaside towns, remote and beautiful. This is much easier than driving by ourselves. Plus, we were lucky to have a great tour guide Lwe, who was considerate, humorous, and knowledgeable. We greatly enjoyed the tour.

Great tour! Lee was very knowledgeable and the day was quite enjoyable. Beautiful sites…so much history in this part of the UK; we learned a great deal. Would love to come back to see all the Heather in bloom!

Snoozefest
Jatin_D

The tour could have been much better. Felt like a monologue, absolute snoozefest. The guide was knowledgeable but had very little enthusiasm to share the information. Felt like a history lesson. Won't recommend.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Jatin_D, It is disappointing to read your 3* review of our North York Moors & Whitby tour. Sorry to hear you thought the tour was boring, we will be investigating your comments. We would always prefer guests to come to us directly with their comments in order for us to settle things privately before posting a review on TripAdvisor. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

Boring!
Heather_S
, Apr 2022
It was not that memorable. A rather blah experience and I would not rate Whitby as a particularly pretty seaside town. It was alright for the experience but the guide, Lawrence, whilst very knowledgeable had a monotone voice which put everyone to sleep. Perhaps being more interactive, more humorous and less of a history lesson would be better.

Hi Heather_S, We do not have a guide called Lawrence, we would appreciate it if you could remove this review & repost it onto the correct company. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

It was my 70th birthday and the whole experience was fantastic - couldn’t have had a better day. Our driver Lee was very knowledgeable and friendly - can’t praise him enough. The weather stayed dry with sunshine - we were revisiting Whitby which we both love and the icing on the cake was seeing steam trains at Pickering - all in all a day which I will treasure forever - thanks so much xx

Would definitely recommend this trip, especially for the price! The driver, Lee, was very knowledge about where we were and what we were seeing. We had lots of photos stops between the main stops. The moors were magnificent and Whitby was a really cool place to spend a few hours. Really glad I went.

Another great trip with Mountain Goat, only comment would be that due to it being November the last stop in Pickering could have been missed as it was dark and most places closed, and could have had longer in Whitby

Brilliant day. We booked this for my mums 75th birthday. Lee was fantastic, very helpful and informative. Great information provided about the tour, where we’re going and the history behind it all. Even did a little detour so we could quickly see the Whale Bones as my mum couldn’t walk that far, also to Thornton le Dale. My mum was very pleased to get her picture taken outside Aidenfields Arms in Heartbeat country!!! Great day and would highly recommend it.
