Fully Guided York City Tour, York Minster, Clifford's Tower, City Walls, Visit to Brontë Country, Visit to Peak District National Park.
Day one (Saturday):
> 7.00 am Minibus departs Cambridge from Parkside Fire Station (opposite Parker's Piece)
> 8.30 am Minibus departs from International Students House, Great Portland Street, London
> Early afternoon arrive York. York is one of England's finest Roman and Medieval cities and visitors are attracted to this fabulous destination all year round. Our tour includes a professionally guided tour with one of York's best local guides, who brings the city's history back to life, covering everything from the Romans and Vikings to York's association with confectionary and chocolate!
> Late afternoon travel to accommodation..
Day two (Sunday):
> 11.45 am Departure from Haworth. In complete contrast, we also visit the windswept rural village of Haworth, which was once home to the famous Brontë sisters and is the place where all their novels were written. In addition, Haworth is a living museum, as it has kept the style of a 1940's (World War 2) village. You will find delightful tea rooms, serving real Yorkshire Tea and shops that sell products that were available more than 60 years ago. There is also lovely church to explore and if there's a service on during your visit you will hear the music and you can even join in. This village is often the highlight of the weekend for many of our clients, especially those who had no prior knowledge!
We return via one of Britain's most outstanding areas of natural beauty, The Peak District National Park, calling in to the pretty village of Castleton with a large network of underground caves and a small hilltop castle, followed by a visit to the Chatsworth Estate, from where you will get a great view of the majestic stately home.
We also see one of the most photographed parts of the Peak District - Monsal Head, overlooking a beautiful valley called Monsal Dale. On a hot day you can buy a delicious homemade ice cream and enjoy the spectacular views in almost complete tranquility.
> Evening arrival in London and Cambridge.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
