An evening with a difference. Great fun with ghost stories, macabre history, jokes and a few magic tricks. Our Guide was certainly an expert on his subject and very entertaining in his story telling. Even as a local there were lots of things that I...More

Thank you Robert for your splendid review. It's worth a reminder to always bring along an umbrella just in case. A little light rain does make for a more mysterious atmosphere but no-one likes to get wet. My usual guideline for children is to ask...More

What a great tour! Nick was great at telling many stories about Carmarthen with a few magic tricks thrown in too. A very enjoyable evening. The police cells at the end were particularly creepy.

The Creepy Carmarthen Tour was wonderful. I am from out of town but the people I was with have lived in Carmarthen for many years and had not known some of the stories. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly suggest!
