We are a Girlguiding group for ages 14 and upwards and went along on a Thursday evening to the One square mile of murder walk in Glasgow. The tour was absolutely brilliant and the girls have been talking about it non stop. Mr Dark was extremely entertaining and certainly made the evening! We would definitely go again and the leaders...

We are delighted to have pleased the girls. 'Mr Dark' himself did express from his own point of view it was a particularly enjoyable tour. We do love doing girl guide groups, they are such fun. Thanks again for the business, and yes please do keep us in mind for our Murder Mystery dinners, they really do go down well... More

We did the square mile of murder tour. Really fun and silly (learned a lot of murder facts too!) Great fun with friends as something a little different to do on a friday night, really reasonably priced.

We took our Explorer Scout's ages 14-18 to the "One Square Mile of Murder" walk one year and it was the best Halloween activity we have ever ran for the scouts! Last year we did the Grahamston tour around Glasgow Cathedral and it did not fail to impress the scouts again! We were guided around the area with our very... More

Met the theatrical Mr Dark in Blytheswood Square at 9.00 pm who immediately set the mood for this 'Horror Walk'. Ghoulish and diabolical murders were recounted to the group as we followed Mr Dark around the Square and we were submersed into the darkest of deeds committed in the Victorian era in this very well to do area. We were... More

I've been on a few ghost tours and I must say that this was by far the most entertaining. Our very creepy guide, Mr Dark, was brilliant at telling the various spooky stories relating to Glasgow, with many surprises along the way. I had a lot of fun and highly recommended this tour.

A total waste of money even if I only paid £6 for the tour. We must have walked like two feet from Cathedral Square to Barony Hall and then back to Cathedral Square. We learned nothing and the walk - if you can call it that - didn't even last half an hour. We were nowhere near where the original... More

We are disappointed you did not enjoy this tour, which you appear to have taken part in some four months ago.We do feel your comments do not reflect our tour, the duration or the content, and as historians we are confident that all information which is available re Grahamston was given over, and indeed more.

After reading previous reviews I wasn't too sure what to expect on our Ghosts of Grahamstown walk. Unlike others I had not researched the area before so all the information entertainingly presented by the dramatic Mr Dark was new to me. A fun and informative way to spend 40 mins.

Was very disappointed in this walk, only went 'round the block' and as someone previously noted, there was more information on the Grahamston web site. Fortunately only paid half price. I understand why we were taken nowhere near it but it could have been worded better on the web site...at one point almost slipped away from the group. Other walks... More
