This was a very good tour of bristol. The ghost stories were very interesting and we learnt alot about our town and saw a lot of places we didnt know existed. 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

Highly recommended! A stunning mix of history with the legends and hidden truths of yesteryear wrapped in the warmth of good humour and local knowledge!

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!!

I took this tour along with a number of colleagues from the company I work for. This tour was informative and humorous and I found out a lot about Bristol that I didnt already know about even though I have lived here all my life! I would defintely reccomend that anyone who wants to find out more about the city... More

I took this tour with my travel mate on our first trip to the UK and we were so glad we did! It was terrific from start to finish. "The haunted" part covers creepy events that occurred in various places in the city center, while "the hidden" uncovers locations where TV programs have been filmed (e.g. Being Human and Doctor...

Just to say it's the best way to get a general idea of what Bristol is and what this city can offer. I spent 3 really enjoyable hours walking around the city, and James, our guide, was really nice and helped us a lot at the end of the tour.
