I convinced my partner a ghost walk would be a good idea before an evening meal, I have been on walks in a few cities and really enjoyed them, after this one I don't think I will be able to convince him to go on another one. There were only 4 stories none particularly interesting or related to the history... More

Did the ghost hunt with my husband last night. We both weren't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed it. Starting from the Shambles at 7.30, you go through the streets of York hearing various ghost stories along the way. Lasted just over an hour. The hour flew by and we were actually a little disappointed when it finished, we... More

A very enjoyable hour with lots of laughs Daniel our guide made the experience enjoyable. A bit tongue in cheek but good fun

We went on this walk to keep ourselves amused for an hour or so on the evening. Couldn't help but notice that there were a few ghost walks and got the impression that there was a well trod path for a number of them. Whilst some of the stories were interesting we would have appreciated a bit more factual info... More

The walk is an amusing experience with the emphasis on audience participation. It last about one hour and is well worth it for a bit of a giggle. Quite theatrical but amusing.

My husband and I were told by many to go on this ghost tour during our trip to York, so we did. Absolutely brilliant, funny, informative and a we had a great time. Not a ghost tour to be taken too seriously though. The guide was also brilliant. Not sure it's something we'd do again as after reading these reveiws... More

More for kids as it's a bit childish, I would say, although most of the stories involved dead children unfortunately. I like a laugh but making faces at people eating in a local restaurant is not my bag!
