A bit boring...stories fell a bit flat...informative about Guy Fawkes but that's hardly a ghost story....kept comforting his barking whippet dog by saying "shh Gracie there are no ghosts"....eh Trevor you're saying that on a GHOST tour? 10/10 would not do it again but props to him for getting £6 off everyone at the end of each tour!

We really enjoyed this tour-quite how accurate some of the finer details were I wouldn't like to say but Trevor is certainly good value for money and we had a great laugh as we traipsed through a rainy York evening in February with him and the rest of the group. This was my first ever ghost tour - I'm a... More

Our son aged 10 decided he wanted to go on a Ghost tour. There are lots to choose from in York and we did not have any particular reason to choose this one. It was interesting with a bit of local history and info on Guy Fawkes. Only a few parts were of ghosts including the talk outside the Greys... More

My boyfriend and I went on the ghost tour this weekend. My boyfriend isn't a believer in ghosts but is interested in history and thoroughly enjoyed it. I, on the other hand, love a good ghost story. Trevor is entertaining and real. We also joined him for a drink afterwards in the Black Swan!

Very interesting little ghost walk lots of information about the past and present he's happy to answer any questions you may have and for only £6 for over an hours entertainment I think he's value for money

The only good thing about this tour is that we kept talking about the insanity that is Trevor Rooney for the rest of our trip. We learned no ghost stories and couldn't take anything he said seriously because he knew no accurate history of York. We had just done a history tour and another ghost tour in the 2 days... More

Having been on the tour this evening I was so impressed that I felt compelled to write a review on here immediately. Our tour was led by Graham Jenkins, from the start he was very engaging, funny, and organised. His knowledge was excellent and factual, he was able to keep us all informed, and somehow managed to keep adults and... More

This is the man of any ghost walks in York. He is a complete genius in story telling of York's dark history & totally immerses you in a time long past as if you were actually there. Did some research on him & what he doesn't know about the history of York is not worth knowing. He is a great... More

Apparently Guy Fawkes was baptised in the 15th Century! And we should buy this man's book? Very disappointing! A big personality - which is needed for ghost tour guides - but sadly an embittered old man big personality! Find another tour to go on... There were other tours we almost moved over to - and would have if we hadn't... More
