Steve is the most professional, courteous, considerate, well-informed tour guide anyone could wish for.
Preparing to welcome friends from the US, we did plenty of research to find a Yorkshire tour guide before discovering Stephen Sutcliffe and what a worthwhile find. We were all impressed with his attention to every detail of our time together including what seemed to be personalised anecdotes and touches - no routine pre-planned stories, instead responsive and thoughtful descriptions of locations and their history. Feel confident booking this well-informed blue Badge Guide, he is masterful.

So many fond memories
I want to thank you to my core for the attention, knowledge and sheer pleasure of having you as my guide for these last ten days.
I am taking back fond memories of all the locations we have visited and of the delightful company you provided.
I know I have only scratched the surface of the beauty that is in this area. I look forward to a return and to have you as my guide once more.My sincere appreciation to you all. All the best to you and your lovely family as we head into the holidays and beyond.
A wonderful day in every way
Good morning, Stephen,
My apologies for not writing sooner to thank you — again — for yesterday. It was a wonderful day in every way - even the weather cooperated. It has been an emotional time for me and my family and though I did hardly any walking yesterday, I was exhausted and went to bed fairly quickly.
I know some jobs — like yours — require people to act interested and/or be chatty with their clients, but I felt as if you genuinely enjoyed showing me around, sharing so much history with me and listening to some of my stories. The best kind of job to have is one that doesn’t feel like a job and as I said in the car, it is obvious you love what you do, love the area and are proud to be a resident.

“Many thanks for the beautiful birthday card and the wonderful trip you provided for me and Rachel yesterday. We’ll always be grateful for your knowledge and expertise on the road and on the tours. We also enjoyed learning much more about the Yorkshire region, the people who live there, and the changing economies. You are so excellent at what you do! We hope you did not get home too late last night and that today was a good day despite the rain. Also, you’re right: 50 is just a number. And I’ve had a lovely birthday! I look forward to returning to Yorkshire some day!”
Warmest regards, Karen
“I appreciate all of your tour and was able to tour the Royal Bath, get a bite at Betty's and visit Farrah's sweet shop before I left.”
“I was touched when I browsed the York Passport you provided. In my father's old age he spoke from childhood and used the expression " Fair to middlin" a lot when asked how he was. Now I know it was probably handed down from Follifoot!”
“I had a thought on the Follifoot postcard you obtained for me. It would be nice if you could mail it to me at;”
