As part of a weekend away to York my boyfriend and I took part in the Ghost hunt. Our guide balanced the spooky tales with humour and despite the very large crowd, engaged everyone. He chose a few people from the audience including my boyfriend to actively participate and provide humour. I would throughly recommend this tour for anyone who... More

Our guide for the evening kept us thoroughly entertained and had everyone enthralled with his tales. Do not mistake his tour with others - his is the ghost HUNT, not tour. This is a great way to spend an hour one evening in York!

The tour was fun, and the host kept in character throughout, It felt a bit staged but it still worked well. Massive crowd on Friday night, must have been over 100 people. It was more funny than scary/informative but that said some of the stories would be un-nerving for children as they featured the murder of children. The kids didnt... More

We did the ghost hunt with 2 adults and 2 teenagers ages 12 and 15. The kids loved it and stated it was the best thing they did in York. The host was very skilled in his story telling and provided lots of laughs. At times it felt like we were at a stand up comedy show. The stories he... More

THE BEST ghost hunt in York - leaving from the Shambles. Be prepared for humour, gory tales, and audience participation. Our tour lasted 1.5hrs - really good value for money and brilliant acting!!

If you don't have a good sense of humour, find a different tour. Absolutely brilliant, suitable for families (apart from one little moment!), would recommend above all others :).

Most entertaining! Very well done, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Even the hound (Never heard our Jack Russell referred to in this way before) enjoyed the walk through parts of the city we hadn't found during a day. Host played the part very well and had us all laughing, money well spent.

What a great evening's entertainment. We had a huge crowd for our tour, a very popular option. We heard some spooky stories, not knowing anything about York's myths or old wives' tales we don't know whether these are long-held folklore or not but we will look up. There are a number of ghost hunt tours available, we chose this one... More
