Bill was so lovely and so funny all night, really accommodating for a large group of teens (around 16/17 in age) Couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend an evening in a really fun way to see the city!!

We went (two adults and an eight-year-old) at Halloween, it was a fab evening, with some moments that we'll never forget. It was filled with dark tales, and magic tricks. Really good fun, and we all squealed at least once!

I saw Bill’s tour when I was at a summer school. He was very funny and his tricks were very interactive and enjoyable. Such a nice man, and also very funny. 5/5.
