This is not usually our thing at all but the reviews were good and we were looking for something slightly different after a day seeing the more usual sites of York. We gathered in the Shambles together with about twenty others and were soon met by the chap in the photograph above ( not sure of his name). He was... More

During our recent visit to York we really wanted to do a ghost tour and of the number available chose this one and was i glad we did. Meeting at the top of the shambles at 7.30 Our guide Dan was hilarious from the start to the finish, funny, dramatic, entertaining and exceptionally good value. York has just the right... More

What a disappointment, we took this tour on our last night in York. You are taken to buildings where it is thought ghosts might be, unfortunately the stories were over theatrical, predictable and unbelievable. The gentleman doing the tours like everyone to be shoulder to shoulder a lot of the time which is not good for those who do not... More

We had a very fun and entertaining evening with Richard! We came out of the walk with our cheeks really hurting and wonderful memories! Lots of facts and creepy stories! Thanks a lot for these wonderful moments!

We had a great evening, entertaining with much humour and laughter. Do join the ghost hunt when you are next in York.

Me and my partner have just been on this ghost hunt and it was so much fun! This is well worth the money. I was rather skeptical as to what it would entail, however this was the best thing we did on our trip. Thanks to the guide who provided an hour of education and humour, don't miss out!

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
