Just turning up at the allotted spot left you wondering what to expect however the tour as off and walking within minutes. Ours was quite busy with 40 odd people so the small ones had to push to the front to see. The walk is not taxing and the stories and information given is very enlightening which makes for a... More

Not a fan of scary things myself, my friend and I decided to give this a try! I was happily surprised when I learnt that it was more funny than scary! Not great for people who go for the thrill of being terrified, however if your wanting a laugh and to learn more about yorks past then I would definitely... More

Guide was absolutely brilliant ! A series of ghost stories are told as you walk around York. Very entertaining.....you get everything; from sad to happy to thought-provoking tales.

Enjoyed this tour and the guide was a brilliant story teller. A great way to tour the city's beautiful streets at night.

I have been on several of the "ghost Walks" in York over the years and enjoy the fun of them and learn a little more of Yorks history each time. This last weekend (29/3/14) I was with family for a get together in York. We decided to go on the Ghost Trial and I am sorry to say was disappointed... More

There must have been about nine of us on a very stormy night and our guide was right on the atmosphere keeping us warm enough with a good mix of walking and electrifying stories. It must have taken ten minutes over the hour and we were reasoanble dry by the end.

I had gone to a ghost walk in bath which was outstanding so the bar was set high but this was so poor I left half way through as I am only in york for a short time I felt this tour only wasted my time, sorry the guy did try but it was flat and life less

Spoilt by the many voices of the Actor/Guide. Was easily side tracked by ramblings off the subject matter he was trying to describe. We were being closely followed by another Ghost walk which was off putting we kept getting bumped along so felt rushed. If he stuck to the story minus the ramblings it would have been much better.

Great ghost walk (but not scary). Great acting from the guide and was quite funny. Didn't go far from the minster but went in to some streets and alleyways you wouldnt of known about.
