Excellent day trip to the yorkshire dales. Lee our driver and guide was so friendly and incredibly knowledgable. We had lots of stops to take photos including the beautiful Jevaulx Abbey and an impromptu stop for the Masham Sheep fair. Highly recommend as a great day out . Tracey and Sue

My wife wife and I decided not to go abroad this year and decided to visit some of the beautiful areas in Britain. I found Mountain Goat tours on line and booked a couple of tours with them and base ourselves in York. The tour of the Yorkshire Dales was absolutely amazing, stunning scenery and breathtaking natural beauty. Mountain Goat organised a really enjoyable tour and their guide was extremely professional but very friendly with it. I cannot recommend Mountain Goat Tours enough.

Amazing day out! We've had the most amazing time travelling around Yorkshire the last few days and this tour was the icing on the cake. Steven, our guide, picked us up from York Minster and drove us all around the dales supplying information about York, the Dales and the little villages around, with a great sense of humour. The Dales themselves are stunning and we were very lucky with the weather. Thanks Steven!
