What a fantastic evening. Very good value for money. The guy is very funny and tells great ghost stories. He is eccentric, energetic and friendly. A must if you visit York !!

We have done two of the ghost tours in York and we didn't think that this tour would be as good as the original tour but it was. Our tour guide was really entertaining and made all of us laugh and jump. Would recommend

You meet your guide at the top of The Shambles and are treated to non-stop entertainment for an hour or so - very very funny and well worth the small cost. Brilliant!

Was a great performance from the tour guide, very entertaining. Having been a resident of York area for many years, it was a great experience, and a new way to see a city I was already familiar with. Great story telling, would highly recommend.

Me and my partner really enjoyed the Ghost Hunt of York. The host has character, quick wit, looooads of personality and great comedic timing. We were laughing throughout. Great interaction with the audience too so be ready to get involved if called upon! Also, it...More

Disappointing. 'ghost stories' served only to illustrate the magic tricks. First 15 minutes were spent being herded like sheep into various corners of shambles market for weak jokes. We perservered for 40 minutes, before abandoning hope and the tour group. Two tales in 40 minutes,...More
