what an amazing experience! A must see while in York. A must see while in England. Our guide, Jake was really funny and make the whole experience really enjoyable. You get to learn about the history of chocolate making and York's chocolate industry through videos and wonderful stories. You also get to taste chocolate throughout the tour and get to make a chocolate lollies at the end. Worth it

We used the pass to visit York Minster, Cocoa Works, Ask Italian, York Castle Museam, Jorvik Centre, York Dungeon, Van Gogh Experience, Boat Cruise.

Great value for money although we didn’t use the hop on hop off bus as all the attractions we visited were within walking distance of each other.

Excellent informative morning thanks to our guide Gina certainly knowing her stuff. Most enjoyable experience where time flew by.
