Was looking through the reviews and this one sounded the best, was really looking forward to it. Got to the shambles at 7.30 and the walk had already started we caught up in the market area where the guide was collecting everyone's money . He then made us all stand in the corner and stare at us people were laughing... More

A fun filled tour the tour guide was very much in character. Well worth £5 for a 1 hour tour around York with ghost stories and laughter.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with the Ghost Hunt of York. Our tour guide was very comical but also a great story teller. We led us through York keeping in character the whole way through and getting the crowd involved in his tales. He held everyone's attention and even got us doing some rather strange things including staring at and... More

We went on this excursion twice because on the first occasion it was being taken by one of the younger partners and he didn't seem "experienced enough". We were told that later that week the man who set up the walk would be doing it so along we went again. It wa ssooo much better, gravely humorous, gravitas where required,... More

No need to like ghosts to enjoy this tour, just a good sense of humour. There are dozens of ghosts stories in York (and probably dozens of tours) but this one is more about having a laugh and also reflect on some gruesome stories of the past. If it's a real and comprehensive ghost evening you're after, go somewhere else,... More

Apart from the rain which couldn't be helped this was a brilliant tour for the small price of £5. I would have paid slightly more. The tour guide was great acting his part. Stayed in character all the time and had a really creepy presence about him from the moment we encountered him. Friendly with all the audience.

Following on from the Ghost Trail the previous night we decided to try another as we enjoyed the first. We didn't enjoy this one. The gentlemen spent a lot of time organising where people stood, and picking on one person in the audience. The stories were few and far between, and certainly not at all scary. It's only £5. There... More

I wavered between two and three stars for this tour. Not a bad way to spend the evening for a fiver, but did not meet expectations and certainly not a "must do" among many other attractions in York. Left about 15 minutes before the conclusion.
