My name is John, I founded York Carriage Awaits in 2019 to provide a whole new way to experience the beautiful city of York. Back in the 1990’s I studied history at University of York. To earn some money I worked as a tour guide in the city on the open top buses. I loved the experience of sharing stories about the city and its famous (and infamous!) residents. When I recently decided on a career change after two decades working in the culture and sports industries I decided I wanted to find a way to work as a freelance tour guide. I wanted to offer something new – York already has loads of walking tours and bus tours. A weekend away in Edinburgh gave me the idea for the Pedicab as the perfect vehicle to navigate the narrow ancient streets of the city. This is my first year operating and going forward I hope to expand to offer more people this unique experience.
