My girlfriend and myself have taken a trip to York for a few days and seen a few different ghost walks advertised and after some consideration we decided to go with this one and I'm so pleased that we did. We were both thoroughly entertained and enjoyed every minute of it, from the word go our guide was in character... More

We were just in York for the evening, and we were handed a flier for the Ghost Hunt by a splendidly gruesome fellow in The Shambles, so we decided to attend. The fellow running the ghost hunt that evening was superb! remained in the character of the ominous Victorian Doctor the whole time, but still made the crowd roar with... More

This guy is just awesome! We really enjoyed the Ghost Hunt (you don't hunt ghosts), an absolute blast was had by all. Funny, entertaining, interesting and professional. Highly recommended.

Humorous, thought provoking, a little scary but mainly good fun. Suitable for all ages. A great way to spend a couple of hours of an evening in York.

We chose this ghost walk partly from previous reviews and also we like the location, starting from the Shambles. The group was very large and we wondered how our guide, Dan, would cope but we didn't need to worry. He commanded the audience, stayed in character the whole time and even had to talk above the sound of the Minster... More

Just returned from a great spooky and funny walk around the centre of York with Dan our guide and approximately 80 other people. With his dead pan humour and great story telling I was hooked from start to finish. If you want a serious historical ghost tour maybe this one isn't for you, if you want entertainment and a good...

We decided to do this walk after various recommendations and we were not disappointed. We started off as 4 adults and 2 stroppy teenagers but 10 mins in they were loving it. He has great interaction with the walkers. Fab stories with a bit of humour too. Would definitely recommend it 💀👻

This was clearly the best of the walks on offer . Saw others and they appeared weak and not as well subscribed . Our guy was dan and he was excellent . In character , macabre , funny and very much in charge. Had everyone laughing and respectful in equal measure . Thank you.

A very knowledgeable and entertaining walk around York. Our group had about 50 people in it and even though it was large our guide was still able to control everyone and keep them all thoroughly entertained throughout the evening. The mixture of ghost stories and funny anecdotes made this experience one of the best things my girlfriend and I visited... More

Ghost Hunt is rated as the best ghost walk in York and it's easy to see why. For a paltry fiver each we had a hugely entertaining walk around historical (hysterical!) York. This guy had the whole group in stitches for the full hour with his blend of dodgy ghost stories, humour, theatrical presentation and crowd participation, his interaction with... More
