Need some inspiration for private tours around York?

Mountain Goat have operated public tours for over 40 years, our public tours are perfect for the lone traveller, couples or small groups that want to explore a little of the famous Yorkshire Countryside and we think we have nailed down the best places and routes for a great overview of the region. But if you are a bigger group, perhaps you like your own company, you have your own itineraries in mind or you just want to leave the car, relax and enjoy a few drinks then fear not as we also offer the private use of our people carriers and minibuses for bigger groups. Our drivers have a great knowledge of the local area and can assist in planning your day. Here are 50 great ideas that might tickle your fancy or inspire you to come up with your own.
