We did the Elm Hill tour with Le Morte. He gave a great performance despite having only been doing it for a few months. There were around 30 in our group but we could all hear and there were some interesting stories. Unfortunately we had a know it all and 'shouter outer' in our group which spoiled it a lot. I thought the guide did really well to overcome the situation as usually these stories build to an inevitable ending which you can predict but you don't want someone spoiling your big finish! Could have done with a bit more history of the buildings to set the scene perhaps. Lasted around 2 hours I think with a story telling swap at the cursed tree, which was spooky. More mystery and acting than frightening this trip but we enjoyed it and credit to the guide as it was a freezing December night. If you book a light (small) meal off the special menu at the Adam and Eve pub to eat before you set off it is £14 inclusive. £8 for walk only. The meal is ok on a cold night but you can pay the difference and have the proper menu if you want which looked better! We did tip as this was' mentioned' and I think out of order on a paid for event. Don't think anyone else did. Nice lad who obliged the tourists but we didn't like the girl who was the Silent Hand as she rudely refused to have her photo taken with a lovely group of men taking photos of everything. Was more interested in making sure everyone had paid, she was a bit abrupt too.Shame as the name of the game is customer service surely or else the walks wouldn't exist anymore.

I took the Monday night River Walk tour with Norwich Ghost Walks on Monday 11th November 2019, and I'm pleased to report that while Halloween may be behind us, this charming tour company is still keeping the spirits of the city busy! Upon arrival at the Adam and Eve pub (where tours commence), I was greeted by the Witch Doctor (our ghostly guide for the evening) and the Silent Hand (who assisted with taking payments and other inquiries), two members of the infamous 'Guild of Shadows'. Those in the know will recall previous Guild members such as the Man in Black and the Shadowcaster, but their current roster is led by the Witch Doctor, the Jack of Crows, and La Morte. Taking in the dark, spectral history of Norwich across the city's scenic river, alleys and historic buildings, our tour lasted roughly an hour and a half, with our ghost host making the most of our time together with a mix of history, mystery and good spirited humour along the way. Highlights included accounts of Matthew Hopkins' well documented activities as Witchfinder General in East Anglia, tales of Peter the Wild Boy and ghostly children around Bedford St, and the legend of the dog fiend Shuck and his death glare (with this legend offering inspiration for British rock group The Darkness - hailing from Lowestoft - to write 'Black Shuck' on their debut album Permission to Land). Overall, a spooktacular night from a company working hard to disprove assertions that Norwich is such a 'fine city' after all, offering a knowledgeable and entertaining take on the traditional ghost walk that has something for everyone!

My family and I decided to try out the Halloween event on the 2nd November after hearing great things- and wow what a night we had!! Absolutely brilliant! With equal measures of scary and hilarious this really is not to be missed. Without giving too much away, the cast (which seemed to be endless with people popping out everywhere) were just brilliant and so in character. We were led along a spooky trail - the perfect level of creepy, so that both the young and older on the tour could enjoy it. At various points we stopped to be told gruesome, grizzly tales- which were laced with brilliant comedy. You never knew what to expect and we felt this tour had the perfect levels of audience participation- perfect for those who wish to join in and also brilliant for those who prefer to just watch. A special mention must go to the storytellers and performers, they really were fantastic with superb delivery and were so clearly invested in making sure everyone had a fantastic time. All in all we were sad when it was over and would 100% come again. Although we wouldn’t want to bump into the Witch Doctor on his quest for witches anytime soon! Poor Margery! Great storyline and performances)🎃👻

What a brilliant evening last night on the Halloween Ghost Walk, great entertainment from start to finish and great fun. The park at Cow Tower is a perfect venue with plenty of added props to add to the spooky atmosphere. The storytellers were excellent along with the other cast. Some visitors dressed up, we wish we had....we will be next time.
