Well I was a bit skeptical after reading the few bad reviews on here but I was definitely not disappointed! It was a good mixture of spooky and humour! Dan, who led us on the tour was fantastic! I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting York to go on this walk. There were a few children on our walk and... More

From the start the leader of the walk was in character and never let it slip for the whole hour of the tour I dont think I have laughed so much for a long time. There were around 30 on the tour and that number was a good size I think if the group was much bigger you would loose... More

We did the Ghost Hunt over Easter and had a great time. We weren't really sure what to expect from the tour, but whatever expectations we did have were definitely surpassed! We arrived at the starting point around 7:20 pm and there was a healthy queue of customers. Dot on 7:30 pm our guide, Dan, appeared ominously dressed all in... More

Decided at short notice to go on the Ghost Hunt of York, which takes you on a walking tour of some of the supposedly haunted areas of York town centre. I was sceptical about the subject matter but ended up having a scarily good time, thanks to the acting skills of our demonic guide. If you have 90 minutes to... More

Maybe a victim of it's own success, we went on this tour in a group of around 50 people, which seemed slighly too many. The kids struggled to see sometimes & we ended up concentrating on how to keep towards the front of the crowd rather than enjoying the walk. Having said that it's really well done & very good...

Having seen the Ghost Hunter advertising his walk during the day we returned in the evening to join a group of approx. 200 people to go on the ghost hunt of York! Having seen other walks with only 3 - 5 people on each one we had high expectations for this one and definitely weren't disappointed! The 'Ghost HUnter' is... More

We were met at 7:30 by the ringing of a bell and the appearance of our costumed guide. Right from the start he had our attention and kept it throughout the hour and twenty minutes of the tour. Although we only heard five stories, each one was made interesting with audience participation, and we got to see parts of the... More

This is more of a comedy theatrical show which is very well presented and delivered by the main actor and guide. Can recommend it as a very good value for money five quid of comedy entertainment for one hour!
