A fantastic performer who ensured the event was inclusive of everyone (how on earth did Mad Alice memorise the names of attendees like that? In awe!) Never a dull moment and loads of laughs amongst the gruesome stories - definitely recommended!

Had an absolute ball with Mad Alice on the tour. Very funny and informative, great with everyone and has the memory of an elephant (reeled everyone's names off). Would highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone as its entertaining while giving you some great gory history.

What amazing fun there is to be had following a mad woman round York at night. Mad Alice had a fund of grim tales to regale us with complete with the odd bit of audience participation. Highly recommended

My friends and I were in York on a girl's Christmas shopping weekend and decided on The Bloody Tour of York because it was ranked number 1 on Trip Advisor- and it did not disappoint! Mad Alice was absolutely brilliant! She was energetic, engaging and had a great character. We were lucky enough to do the tour in the snow, which added a magical element to the tour. The stories - a lot of history and not all ghosts and ghouls - were really well told, with suggestions on where to visit in the daytime, too. Mad Alice also made to effort to talk to each group, individually, learned all our names and brought us into the storytelling. It was a fantastic experience!
