We at Footprints Tours are specialists in providing the best educational tours of cities around the UK. We deal with groups of all numbers, ages and nationalities.
Our track record speaks for itself. We have worked time and again with language schools, universities and summer schools who return to us, year after year, due to our proven ability to provide an excellent service at the most competitive price.
Unlike many tour operators, we are experienced in designing enjoyable, informative tours for all age groups. We have even devised particular games and techniques that we can deploy to hold the interest of younger audiences. Our special quiz competition option, for example, always manages to keep students’ attention engaged throughout the tour.
Not only do we maintain the same fantastic standard across all our tours, we can specialise your tour on request. Studying architecture? We’ll include detailed information about the magnificent buildings that we cover throughout the tour. Are your students learning English? We’ll ensure that every group member understands the tour and also learns as they go. If desired, we can even provide bilingual tour guides in a variety of languages to help students along.
And all of our tours will cover the drama, the intrigue and the excitement of York’s history, from the treacherous Guy Fawkes to the fiendish Richard of York.
We find that many young people particularly enjoy the fun, engaging style that we use to present our tour. Our guides are all well-versed in York’s history, but they are also interesting, energetic local professionals who want to get visitors truly interested in Britain. It’s not all dates and statistics! Our student group tours of York take in the stranger, quirkier aspects of York’s history that make the city so unique.
