“Dont bother”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Really disapointed with the walk, was expecting plenty of ghost stories but instead got a few ghost references, a bit of local history and a lot of waffle. Wish I had joined one of the other groups.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We recently did this and sorry to say that we were very disappointed at the end. In the hour we spent, we heard 3 different tales, all of which were a tad boring and not at all scary to say the least. Unfortunately, Trevor likes to talk about himself more than he does telling the tales that we expected to hear. Maybe the reason why the other story tellers had a larger following!!!! And whilst Trevor did look the part we found the whole trip a waste of time and money. You will find more interesting and scary facts at the Castle Museum.

“Waste of time and money!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Trevor took the ghost walk to 3 different locations. He mentioned 4 historical facts and then talked about himself and his lastest venture (a galleon he was building). There was little of interest in the information he gave - I knew most from Blue Peter in the 70's. I was bitterly disappointed! 4 years ago I went on a ghost walk round the city and leant interesting facts, visited hidden alley ways and heard really thought provoking ghost stories. I cant remember which tour it was but it definately was not Trevors!!!

“Loved it!!!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We stumbled on this ghost walk after getting lost on our first evening in york after intending to go on a different walk (the shambles). I'm sooo glad we did!! It wasn't trevor but a younger man but he was brilliant, his stories were interesting with plenty of laughs along the way!!! I unfortunaly was picked on to act as a lonley woman walking at night and was made to run hop and spin down a allyway (providing many laughs for my partner and the rest of the group who then refered to me as the hopping woman!!) But all in all it was well worth the money!!
