We visited here as we were given a leaflet from the host, earlier in the day, having studied the leaflet we decided to arrive at the 'Shambles' at 7:30 PM, having arrived we sat on the wall and awaited our host. Sure enough, he came walking down the cobbled street. The Host was dressed in old Victorian clothes and was... More

The host is great and never breaks character but this walk want very scary or informative. If you want to laugh, this is your tour. If you want history or to be scared, pick another.

Went on the ghost hunt on Tuesday night, we found it was a great experience from start to finish (hubby got picked!!). It was a tour that was suitable for both children and adults. The host whose name was ..... unimportant was very funny and engaged well with the crowd. Highly recommended

Despite living in the area for years we finally went on the York Ghost Walk. My 13, 10 and 9 year old boys loved it. The host was brilliant and really engaged with the entire group. Thanks for fun and amusing tour - it was absolutely superb.

Great stories, good fun and very entertaining. Not too scary as in horror film, but gruesome enough to keep 8/9 year Olds interested etc. Adults all laughing and our host whose name was 'unimportant' kept the audiences attention. Despite a big crowd even those at the rear felt fully involved and could hear and see etc. Good value at 6... More

As a fan of ghost walks, I expected to learn a little more about the history of the city, the myths and legends, so while this tour gave me some chuckles, it did not meet my high expectation (after I had heard that York is famous for its ghost walks). Our guide was a good performer and a great entertainer.... More
