What people are saying about Yorkshire and The Humber

Sarah, that showed us around Leeds yesterday, was very knowledgeable & made the tour very enjoyable. Gave us a great insight into the history & things to look out for & an enthusiasm to go back to explore more places visited in depth i.e. we went & had lunch in the tiled cafe at the Leeds art gallery, which is an amazing room.

I chose this event as a gift for my sister in law’s 90 birthday - she loves the music of the rat pack and we were not disappointed. Special thanks to Russell - you were amazing. A fabulous night- brilliant atmosphere. Looking forward to booking another trip. ❤️

Had a brilliant night on Thursday. Staff were pleasant and the singer was happy to take requests. Looking forward to booking again soon.

Michelle was very pleasant and had an excellent recall of historical names and facts. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to her.

Fabulous evening - perfect from start to finish. Looking forward to the next one
