My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time, Gemma-Louise was wonderfully weird and wacky, keeping everyone safe and entertained. Learned a lot on our tour and we appreciate York a lot more. 10/10 for theatrics and historic knowledge.

Gemma-Louise was a great guide and her acting ability made for a fun evening, even though we spent the rest of our time in York muttering 'don't die under a deliveroo'. Best £5 we've spent in a while, very good value indeed. Recommended.

Really good tour. Good start time, 645pm runs for just over an hour and a half. Tour guide Jake was really funny, had my teenage daughter in hysterics. Would recommend.

Initially a guide failed to turn up, but Damian who should of been doing something else took over. He was fantastic and I would have no hesitation in recommending the trail to anyone. Thank you

Absolutley! The tour doesn’t go anywhere which would be inaccessible! And if there was any problems with any of the locations then our guides would be happy to help and accommodate! Gemma-Louise, General Manager.

Just turn up outside the Golden Fleece Pub. They won’t take any money off you until the end of the walk. I think it’s a 7 start, but the sign is there all day giving the details. Enjoy.
