    What to Expect
    This small-group guided day trip from York takes you to the stunning landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, including Wensleydale, Littondale and Nidderdale. The tour departs at 9.00am from a centrally located meeting point near York Minster and heads off for the Yorkshire Dales National Park.To ensure personal service and comfort, the tour capacity is limited to 16 passengers and the Minicoach is equipped with air-con. 
    The first stop is at Wensleydale’s most famous landmark, the 14th century Bolton Castle which once housed Mary Queen of Scots, where you will have the opportunity to enjoy and photograph the magnificent views over Wensleydale, learn a bit about the history of the area from your Guide, or just have a leisurely Yorkshire Brew in the medieval castle’s Tea Room!
    The tour then follows the scenic route to Hawes, passing through the traditional Dales village of Askrigg, the filming location for "Darrowby" in the James Herriot "All Creatures Great and Small" TV series.
    You will have one and a half hours free time in Hawes, the highest Market Town in England, where you can maybe grab some lunch and sample the cheeses at the world famous Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre, visit the Dales Countryside Museum or just explore the quaint shops and cafes of the town itself - the choice is yours! 
    After Hawes you will head into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park for some photo stops as you pass through the picturesque villages along the meandering route of the River Wharfe.
    You will arrive in the traditional Dales village of Kettlewell, made internationally famous in 2003 as the main filming location for the Calendar Girls movie. You can explore the village and learn more about the true story behind the movie, or just enjoy a beer or coffee with the locals in one of the pubs and cafes - whatever you prefer! 
    Continue your journey through the beautiful countryside of the National Park, passing Kilnsey Crag and the village of Grassington, then into the rolling hills of Nidderdale, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
    The final stop is in the charming little town of Pateley Bridge, category winner in the Great British High Street Competition in 2016, where you will have the option to visit "The Oldest Sweet Shop in the World" (2014 Guinness Book of Records), before heading back to York.
    The tour arrives back at the meeting point in York at around 5:15pm but you should not book onward travel arrangements too close to the time of arrival back in York just in case of traffic problems.

    Had a great time in the Dales with our guide Mark. One thing that is most appreciable is that he speaks very slowly and articulates so that non-native English speakers can easily follow. The van was good and provided good view. Numerous stops with detailed...More

    Wonderful to get out of the busy city and into the beautiful, expansive countryside of Yorkshire. Our guide, Mark, was knowledgeable, informative friendly and competent—and driving the extremely narrow roads of the area required that competence!
