Your Local Guides

Howard Smelt-Webb is from a farming background - the famous vet, Alf Wight (James Herriot) used to be the vet for the family farm. A former police officer in North Yorkshire, Howard and his team have lived and worked throughout Yorkshire all their lives and would like to share their knowledge of the county with you. From major tourist attractions to hidden Yorkshire, country pubs to tea rooms, farm shops to boutique shops, from scenic walks to spectacular views - they know where to take you to make your day extra special.

Chauffeur Guided Tours

Our tours are normally for a tighter half day or a full day. This service is totally flexible and can be tailored to individual requirements. We offer tours throughout Yorkshire. 

We have also secured two great stately homes for bespoke private tours -

  •  Birdsall House, near Malton, a privately owned estate dating back to the late 16th Century, which has been in the Willoughby family since 1719, and
  •  Sion Hill Hall, near Thirsk, one of the last Edwardian stately homes to be built in Yorkshire prior to the Great War, and designed in the Arts & Crafts period.

Vehicle Options

Relax and enjoy being chauffeur driven in one of our luxury vehicles - we have a wide range available to suit your individual needs, including a Mercedes Vito Tourer people carrier that is extremely versatile and spacious, seating 7 passengers in comfort. With excellent visibility and an elevated position above the ground, tour guests can see over walls and hedges, which adds to the enjoyment of the tour.
