York Pedicab Tours: A Whistle Stop Tour of York #Review

York Pedicab Tours: A Whistle Stop Tour of York Review: September 2020 #Gifted

York’s only licensed pedicab City tours are the perfect way to enjoy the best of both worlds with transport and tour rolled into one!

The cabs are weather protected, fitted with seat belts, have cosy cushions and blankets for colder nights and have no environmental impact so are 100% free of carbon emissions, so that is a big thumbs up from me!

All round nice guy and cheeky chappy John provides safe sightseeing York tours with some historical info thrown in for good measure.

Hear about the Romans, Vikings and all things medieval, so board your chariot, hold onto your Viking armoury and prepare for a fun and historical encounter like no other.

Discover the exciting tales and tribulations of historical characters such as Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin, Henry VIII, Richard III, Constantine the Great, William the Conqueror and Queen Victoria who all played their part in the exciting story of how York has become what we love and know today.

Throughout your tour, you will visit iconic sights such as the York Minster, The City Walls and Gateways, Clifford’s Tower, Treasurers House, the Shambles and Whip Ma Whop Ma Gate.

Photo opportunities are plentiful and I can tell you John is pretty handy with the camera, so yet another perk of this amazing service.

John was patient and took time to get the perfect photos and create much loved photographic memories.

Take your foot off the peddle, sit back, relax and let the good times roll, as you wing your way around York.

Engaging, exciting and enjoyable, a must do York experience with plenty of giggles, fun historical facts and of course you get to meet the lovely John.

Your York carriage awaits…Peddle your way into York’s historic past with York Pedicabs.

  2. This looks like such a great way to explore the city and find out more about it. York is one of my favourites so I’ll need to make a note of this as there’s loads I haven’t explored yet x

  3. This looks like a fun way to travel around and learn the history of the area! I’m very surprised they don’t use an electric bicycle mechanism though – seems quite tough to carry the entire pedicab!


  4. The fact that the cabs are weather protected, have cosy cushions and blankets for colder nights and have no environmental impact so are 100% free of carbon emissions, gives enough reason to want to try it. These guys thought of many factors that could hinder an amazing ride and went to work! Awesome!
