Our party of four didn't daunt Adam at all, he arranged to do a relay tour for us as the pedicab only seats two. The tour was split into 4 sections with him dropping the first couple off and pedalling back for the other two and swopping as he went round, it was hard work for him but made it... More

I did the tour with Adam today and enjoyed it very much. A friendly knowledgable young man with legs of steel (he'd have to have I think) who enjoys showing off his beautiful city! Thanks Adam it was great.

We thoroughly enjoyed the green cab ride with Adam on Monday. He took us to places we'd never seen before, even though we've visited York loads of times. His knowledge of the area was brilliant , and the cab, complete with pillows was comfortable. Don't know how he managed to cycle up some of the steep banks. He must have... More

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed a very informative, unique tour of York. Our host was caring, pleasant and very enthusiastic. Oozing with information and pride for his city, we felt like Royalty pulled through the streets. Seeing and hearing fascinating historical facts off the traditional tourist tracks. Good weather was a bonus, and we will definitely book again. It... More

We'd been looking forward to our trip to York for ages, when we saw the green cab tour we thought it sounded like a great idea. Infact it turned out to be the best idea we had about the entire trip. We would highly recommend this tour, everything about it was brilliant.

I would recommend the pedicab ride round York ... As its such a interesting way to enjoy the lovely interesting buildings . A very courteous driver and works very hard up and down then cobbled side roads and manages to talk all the way through giving good information about the city of York . Thoroughly enjoyed .

A really interesting and different way to see the sights of York. We've been to York many times before but never tried any tours. Really enjoyed our green cab ride and would definitely come back again and maybe try the picnic tour. Already recommended it to family & friends. Great!! 10/10
