Destination Yorkshire takes a fresh approach to providing tailor-made destination management services and guarantees the highest standards of professional and friendly customer service combined with expert advice, local knowledge and trusted recommendations.
The company was founded by Neil Sabey who has over 25 years’ experience in travel, corporate event management and tourism. His expertise in this industry has been gained from a number of senior management roles for major tour operators and a leading leisure airline, combined with considerable direct customer experience having previously worked as a freelance tour director escorting tours around the United Kingdom and Europe. A high level of event management proficiency has been gained over these years in providing high specification itineraries for both corporate clients and leisure customers.
Neil is also a fully qualiﬁed Yorkshire Blue Badge Guide as awarded by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. The Blue Badge is the British national standard guiding qualiﬁcation and an internationally recognised benchmark of excellence, with its professional status being acknowledged and respected by oﬃcial bodies throughout the tourism industry. Neil’s home county is Yorkshire, which is an additional benefit to the company, ensuring that his accumulation of essential knowledge about the must-see attractions and hidden gems will be a definite advantage for his customers.
The extended team at Destination Yorkshire has substantial professional industry experience covering all areas of travel, corporate events and tourism including tour operation, aviation, event management, hotel management and tourist guiding. We are further supported by a close network of trusted local partners who are all committed to the same high levels of customer service.
Our mission is to provide a world-class destination service and an unrivalled visitor experience combined with a simple and honest approach and exceptional Yorkshire hospitality.
