From York: Private Yorkshire Dales National Park Day Trip

1. From York: Private Yorkshire Dales National Park Day Trip

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales on a private day trip from York. Join a local guide for a journey to the historic village of Richmond, the spooky Bolton Castle, and Richmond Castle. Stop in Askrigg and Masham. Snacks and non-alcoholics drinks are included. After getting picked up from your hotel in York, travel by Mercedes Benz minivan to the peaceful market town of Masham. Enjoy a quick tea or coffee (not included in tour cost) before continuing your journey into the Dales. Pass through idyllic villages and across remote moors via ancient woodland and waterfalls. Stop for lunch in Askrigg, a village so old it features in the famous Domesday Book of AD 1086. Then, arrive at the stark, eerie, and historically fascinating Bolton Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner. After exploring the castle, head out of Wensleydale and into the remote landscape of Swaledale before arriving in Richmond, the first Richmond in the world, predating its American and London namesakes. Explore the dramatic and ancient Richmond Castle and perhaps enjoy a quiet pint in one of its quintessentially English pubs. From Richmond, sit back, relax, and enjoy the onboard snacks on the drive back to York.

We enjoyed the trip. Guide did a lovely job making it fun, despite a very rainy day. It would have been helpful if the van/coach was equipped to recharge cell phones. Overall, a great experience, with interesting stops and historical commentary. Would travel again with this company.

This tour was excellent. Trevor is a marvellous tour guide - pointing out all that the Dales has to offer. He is very knowledgeable and makes the tour interesting. You get to see the scenic dales and explore fab towns. I would highly recommend this tour!!
