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.

I brought 24 scouts out for the ghosts of grahamstons past walk and was thoroughly impressed with the content and our host Johnny. It last at least 50 minutes a maybe more and the scouts enjoyed themselves from the start. would be more than happy to take them back.

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.

We are indeed disappointed you did not enjoy your tour. The original location of Grahamston is unfortunately not accessible as Glasgow Central Station has been built on top of it. What little remains are extremely busy city centre streets and unsuitable for this tour. The location of the walk was clearly explained on our website and in confirmations and emails... More
