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

Fun and lighthearted ghost tour of York, encompassing all the most famous stories. Very fun and engaging host. Would probably have been more scary if we'd done it in the dark of winter.

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
