I went on the ghost walk and was highly impressed, the young man leading us (obviously a professional actor/comedian) was fantastic, York holds many interesting stories that are worth taking a closer and theatrical look at.

Absolutely love this ghost hunt. The guy who leads it is a hoot from start to finish. Everyone has a great time on this tour and it never gets old. Planning on bringing our son in January for his birthday.

A really funny, theatrical tour of some beautiful buildings in the city, with stories of the supernatural combined with good humour and clever props. The young guide was very good, with expert comic timing! Well recommended :-)

Not as scary as what I was hoping for but the guide made up for it with his dark humour. Participants have to be sporting for it to be fun.

All of the streets are flat, and there are no curb issues. As far as distance, I really can't judge - covers much of old York center. But, I think you would have little difficulty - so yes, you can do it.
