Met the theatrical Mr Dark in Blytheswood Square at 9.00 pm who immediately set the mood for this 'Horror Walk'. Ghoulish and diabolical murders were recounted to the group as we followed Mr Dark around the Square and we were submersed into the darkest of deeds committed in the Victorian era in this very well to do area. We were... More

I've been on a few ghost tours and I must say that this was by far the most entertaining. Our very creepy guide, Mr Dark, was brilliant at telling the various spooky stories relating to Glasgow, with many surprises along the way. I had a lot of fun and highly recommended this tour.

A total waste of money even if I only paid £6 for the tour. We must have walked like two feet from Cathedral Square to Barony Hall and then back to Cathedral Square. We learned nothing and the walk - if you can call it that - didn't even last half an hour. We were nowhere near where the original... More

We are disappointed you did not enjoy this tour, which you appear to have taken part in some four months ago.We do feel your comments do not reflect our tour, the duration or the content, and as historians we are confident that all information which is available re Grahamston was given over, and indeed more.

After reading previous reviews I wasn't too sure what to expect on our Ghosts of Grahamstown walk. Unlike others I had not researched the area before so all the information entertainingly presented by the dramatic Mr Dark was new to me. A fun and informative way to spend 40 mins.

Was very disappointed in this walk, only went 'round the block' and as someone previously noted, there was more information on the Grahamston web site. Fortunately only paid half price. I understand why we were taken nowhere near it but it could have been worded better on the web site...at one point almost slipped away from the group. Other walks... More

Very enjoyable tour, real life murder stories from our own city with a bit of humour thrown in, Mr Dark in 19th century costume was very entertaining, suitable for people of all ages, a few surprises along the way, not a lot of walking so don't let that put you off, my wife and I intend to take in a...

Just back from this tour. It was both interesting and informative with lots of surprises to go with the stories. Our guide Mr. Dark was funny and extremely good at explaining about the dark side of Glasgow and the gory incidents that took place in a very wealthy neighbourhood of the city. Loved it.
