Wasn't sure what to expect but was not disappointed. Mr Dark was fabulous. Laughed all the way through even tho the stories were so serious. A mixture of history,humour and darkness. A great way to spend some time in a beautiful part of the city. Amazing what you walk past when you are not looking. If you are looking for... More

I did this tour a while ago, my son was wearing a full length dracula cape and light up fangs we had a ball and my son joined in the action and the guide was so nice to him, we are going again next week, i don't want to give out to many spoilers, this fun and scarey.

What can I say?! We went on this tour with a mixed bunch and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it despite the heavens opening up about half way round the tour. It is Glasgow though, so is always to be expected. I guess if you didn't bring your umbrella, more fool you. 'Mr Dark' should be on stage!! (Is he?) We have... More

The tour was very entertaining, quite informative and a good laugh! Mr Dark and his sidekick were both very good, and kept us on our toes! I am disabled and use a powerchair full time, so I emailed beforehand to find out if this tour would be accessible for me, and they were very helpful in describing the tour to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Glasgow Square Mile of Murder walk this weekend. Mr Dark suitably scary, creepy and funny, all at the same time. We'll be checking out Spirit of Glasgow for more nights out to come.

We were looking for something a little different to do in Glasgow and I am glad we decided to book this tour! The tour guide in particular was very entertaining, he got right into character and remained that way throughout. It was quite light hearted and the tour group we were in really got into the spirit of the tour,... More

I was not sure what to expect. I bought tickets for a group of 4. And we all had a great time. Mr Dark was amazing. If you want to do somethig different it is worth going and experiencing Victorian Glasgow and its murder mysteries.

This walk covers some of Glasgows darker side around Blytheswood Square. If it wasnt for the well honed and amusing skills of the guide and his assistant I might have been annoyed it only lasted 40 minutes but I still felt I had had value for money. Well worth a try if you visit Glasgow and want a laugh as... More

We do cover all of the most important stories of One Square Mile of Murder, which are 5 full narratives, and we have timed it to be exactly a 50 minute... More
