I founded Expedition Yorkshire to enable the adventurous traveller, the curious traveller, the new traveller to discover Yorkshire, and within its geography, some of England's most stunning landscapes and fascinating histories.
Small, intimate, private, groups of 7 or less, allow a special authenticity impossible to achieve onboard mass market coach tours. Our vehicle is far more agile and comfortable than any traditional bus or even most mini buses and is therefore able to access much narrower, steeper, more remote roads. We always tread lightly so there is no risk of offending the locals or harming the local wildlife, this ensures a warm welcome from the fine people of Yorkshire!
"‘It was one of our favourite days of our trip to England. Would highly recommend!’"
Previously based in London, for seven years I lead countless tours to Stonehenge, Bath, The Cotswolds, Stratford-Upon- Avon, Canterbury and Oxford with The English Bus.
I was part of a very small team that helped make The English Bus Trip Advisor’s Travellers Choice # 1 Tour in the UK.
Whilst leading these tours, I spoke to more than six thousand amazing guests from around the world. And in our many conversations, I discovered that few had planned to visit York, and even fewer its surrounding wild landscapes, high hills and rugged coast. I was gobsmacked - This seemed like an awful mission when you have come so far to visit England and miss some of its most magnificent heritage & terrain. I wanted to change this.
It occurred to me that public transport to these areas ranges from challenging to non existent, the routes complicated, and the roads a serious risk for anyone not used to driving on the left-hand side of the road. Expedition Yorkshire aims to deliver tours that solve all these problems and go far beyond, creating incredible days that will form beautiful memories which may last a lifetime.
Here’s to showing you around Yorkshire onboard our stunning, safe, state of the art vehicle this season.
