Itinerary
Stop At:  
York City Walls
This is a personalized tour through the Viking Capital of Britain - Jorvik! Discover the fascinating true story behind the Vikings, as well as the legendary tales told in the sagas, many of which are set in our fair city. There are no set times to meet or big groups to join with, this is your own private tour which you can take at your own pace. Hear about the deeds of Ivar the Boneless, Eirik Bloodaxe, and Harald Hardaraada, the story of the Vikings arrival, and their eventual downfall. Learn how the streets got their names and what they mean, how the pagan Vikings became Christians, and their impact on the world around us today, including laws, language and customs. For a additional small fee, depending on the weather (and with prior arrangement) the tour can include either a stop-off, or to finish, at an authentic Viking themed bar, built right on top of the original feasting hall!
