Private Tour FAQ
Do you have a minimum/maximum number of guests?
A: Not really. Well, minimum is 1. We find that in some areas large groups can be cumbersome so we may need to limit group size depending on the tour you’re interested in.
Are your rates per person or per guide?
A: Our private tour rates are based on the number of guides rather than number of guests. Our rates don’t change unless you have enough guests to warrant more than one guide.
Are your tours customizable?
A: YES! You hire a guide, not a tour. Our guides and administration staff help you work out an itinerary that will suit your schedule and interests. Sometimes not everything you want to see is within walking distance or can fit in your requested time frame, but we do our best to show you all York has to offer!
Do I have to pay in advance?
A: Yes, we request payment in order to confirm a guide. We accept credit card payments via PayPal (you don’t need a PayPal account to use it) and via UK or international bank transfers.
What is your cancellation policy?
A: Tours canceled with less than 48 hours notice are non-refundable. Tours canceled with less than 14 days notice are subject to 50% cancellation fee. Tours unpaid with less than 3 weeks or less before the tour are unconfirmed and subject to guide availability. In the event of guide cancellation, you will receive a full refund. Our tours are rain or shine, but if it is severe/unsafe weather we can arrange a refund or reschedule.
