Tour Planning

Destination Yorkshire appreciates the many complexities involved in the organisation of a travel itinerary and understands that it can be both time consuming and complicated to source the required arrangements. With our intimate local knowledge we can carefully plan your itinerary to help make the best use of your available time and then provide any further required operational management including the arrangement of transportation, guide services, accommodation and making reservations for local excursions and visits.


Transportation

Destination Yorkshire knows that when it comes to transportation, safety, punctuality and reliability are of the utmost importance. We are able to organise all your transport arrangements for groups of all sizes including coach hire for city sightseeing tours, day excursions, airport transfers and conference shuttles. We also offer a VIP private transfer service for those special occasions or important business appointments. We can arrange all types of transportation depending on the requirement, including vintage coaches, heritage trains and traditional canal boats.


Guide Services

We believe that the best way to truly experience Yorkshire is in the company of a professional with first-hand knowledge. Our team includes multi-lingual Yorkshire Blue Badge guides and experienced tour managers who are all hand-picked not just for their expertise of Yorkshire, but in equal measure for their friendly and personable manner. Our guides are available for a variety of different guiding assignments including sightseeing tours, corporate tours, ‘meet and greet’ services, airport transfers and full tour management and will be pleased to help you in any way they can.


Accommodation

We constantly review the best hotels in Yorkshire so we are confident when recommending suitable options depending on the nature of your itinerary, your budget and your group size. Our accommodation options range from well appointed city style hotels through to quaint bed and breakfast houses and all are carefully selected for their convenient locations, traditional charm and friendly hospitality. We can also organise something special and a little more unusual, from a characteristic inn hidden away in the Yorkshire Dales to a stay in a Yorkshire castle.


Cruise Management

Destination Yorkshire understands that organisation, communication and timing are imperative when managing large group assignments. We can provide full operational cruise management of a shore excursion programme including the arrangement of coach transportation and qualified guides through to making and coordinating all the necessary reservations with events, attractions and restaurants to ensure all goes to plan.
