An entertaining and different way to see Burford. 10 of us had a private tour. With Bill Sykes to lead us through and around the quaint streets of Burford, we laughed all the way round. Unfortunately no ghosts or spooks managed to rock up, despite Bill's attire, jokes and tricks.

Bill Spectre is a great entertainer, a true showman. A truly interactive experience. Great entertainment value. I would highly recommend it if you are ever in Burford.

Thank you for your lovely review! I'm really wanting to run more trails in Burford so your helping to spread the word is a great help. The trail works best when the audience is looking for spooky fun, and on that score your group were perfect! Thanks again and I hope we get to meet again one day. More

We did not do the Ghost trail but had Bill come to the Old School House and tell us stories between courses at dinner and them he finished with a longer story whilst we had coffee, he is brilliant and sets the mood perfectly.

Bill Spectre takes groups on an on foot tour of Burford's 'ghost' haunts. The trail lasts about an hour and it flies by. Bill is an excellent actor and combines information, humour and stunts along the way. Well worth it.
