Great fun and super value. It's not scary and therefore suitable for all ages. Intersperses some interesting stories with lots of fun and humour. A good way to get to know the centre of York too. Lasts about an hour. Very entertaining!

Best £5 i spent in York! My husband and I had such a good time on this ghost hunt that I recommend it to everyone and only wish I had had my teenagers with me because they would have loved it! Andy Dextrious is brilliant and held us all captive with his ghost stories and then had us all crying... More

This was a fun and interesting walk. I would have liked a little more stories but the guide made the walk fun and gave a view of multiple stories in the city and had fun while moving the tour thru town.

Don't expect too much real ghost stuff but do expect a lot of fun! Dan our guide was great and very funny in a weird way. Would choose this one over the others though as we saw one of the other tours on the way round and they weren't smiling as much as we were!

This ghost hunt tour was good fun and lots of crowd interaction however the ghost walk I went on a few years ago was a lot more informative. We still had a good night and lots of laughs though :)

I've not been on a ghost hunt, tour or walk before and I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, Anthony was amazing, he kept in character for the entire tour and even after when we saw him walking along the shambles! It was a great mix of fun, history and ghosts, the only thing that let it down was the... More

We opted for this ghost walk over the others on offer based on TA reviews and, judging by the size of the groups we saw on our way round, it was a wise choice! Anyway, cost was £5 each and the walk lasted just over an hour and included 5 or so stops for the host to tell his humerus... More

My partner had planned a surprise weekend away for us in York. The ghost hunt of York was one of the planned items. We turned up at the Shambles at 7.30, we were greeted by a tall man in Victorian costume top hat and all ringing a bell. He had the look of the child catcher in Chitty Bang Bang,... More

Although short, we had great fun with our tour guide, he's enthusiastic, funny, and captured the audience, a few Ghost stories that we found great! A good way to spend the evening for a fiver.

There are many different ghost tours on offer in York but we were recommended this one and we were not disappointed! You arrive in the beautiful and already spooky shambles in the center of York where you are greeted by a victorian dressed man ringing his bell. He never once breaks character and this only adds to the feel of... More
