Bill led us around Oxford on a great tour of the city at night with stories of mysterious happenings bringing us back in time! He had some great theatrics to go along with the stories which made it very enjoyable and a little bit creepy. It was my mom, and sister and I that went and we met up with the group outside of the tourist center. He had a big sign already there so it was easy to join in. Highly recommend Bill Spectre's Oxford Ghost Trail to anyone wanting to explore Oxford at night!

We were visiting Oxford the week 14 to 21 March (very near to the close down date due to Covid). We booked our tour for 20 March (friday) and it was just the right decision! We are a family of 4 and every one of us enjoyed so much this tour. At the very begining of the tour, Bill showed us the magic "2 taps on the shoulder", this was simply amazing (i was chosen to be part of this action). Almost every tourist was chosen at some point of the tour to be part of the show. I trust every one has their fun time! My son Leonardo (9 years) wants to say to Bill: " you did very well. I think you are very famous !" My daughter Angela (12 years)wants to say to Bill : " it was fun intriguing. although the tour was at night and i was sleepy, i did not want to close my eyes for a second because i did not want to miss any part of the tour!" We hope more people may take this tour with Bill Spectre!

Thank you so much for your lovely review, I was glad you were able to come along before I had to stop running the tours. It was great to meet you all, you were excellent volunteers and a big thank you to Leonardo and Angelo, I couldn't have managed without the help of you all! Keep safe and here's hoping these strange days will be over before long.

The ghost walk was really entertaining and quite informative. There was plenty of ghost stories and also some tricks and bits of history as well. Would very much recommend. Also, Bill gave us a sticker which gave us money off our tickets to visit the castle and prison the next day which was an added bonus.

School group tour. Bill was excellent to communicate with very helpful in organising a private tour for a school group. He was entertaining throughout, funny, spooky and professional. A delight!
