John was our guide to this fabulous tour of the hidden and haunted parts of Bristol. I went with a group of twelve colleagues and we all enjoyed the stories. Here you can find short tales, rumours, stories of murder, celebrity gossip and facts of film and television. These vignettes punctuated with humour, jokes and witty asides. The walk lasts... More

Great fun and informative tour. John the Tour guide was a legend and knew so much about Bristols Celebrity Trivia! I thoroughly recommend giving this a go! But remember- Things go bump in the night!!! 👻

This walk was great fun and very informative! I have lived in Bristol most of my life and I learnt a lot. The walk is not challenging and it takes you to some of the city's best sites. The tour guide was very entertaining, very knowledgeable and lots of fun. I highly recommend this walk.

The tour guide was very good and funny and knew alot of things about celebrities which was also interesting to know. All three if us of various ages enjoyed... More

A very interesting and thoroughly enjoyable stroll finding out more about the 'behind the scenes' history of Bristol. Only a short tour (90 minutes) weaving in and around a lot of the smaller, hidden lanes in the centre of Bristol during which our guide, John, managed to combine some fascinating facts with more than a sprinkling of wry humour. Although... More

Really enjoyed this! My 12 year old daughter suggested this and to be honest, I was sceptical. I thought it wouldn't be very good for the low cost of John's time but I was wrong. You often drive around your own city and miss so much, but walking around the old Bristol City centre with a very knowledgeable guide, with... More

I don't want to give this a negative review, because the tour guide John was a genuinely lovely man... However... I can't say I really enjoyed it. It was simply a walk around Bristol looking up at interesting buildings. It is neither a ghost tour nor a celebrity tour and really misses the mark on both. If it were a... More

Many thanks for the very honest and constructive comments. I take on board possibly adding more drama to the tellings of say some of the murders especially at All Saints Church for example. i would love to dress up aka like an Edinburgh or York ghost walk guide but having given it a go in the past in can attract...

Thanks John. Great walk and talk on Friday night. We found it really interesting and a good 90 minute break from the bars and pubs around our home city. I walk around Briz all the time and will look at some of the central landmarks differently after all your gruesome stories!!
