Mad Alice really makes this tour what it is - brilliant!
When we attended the tour, only me, my boyfriend and another couple showed up for it which surprised me as this tour was very interesting.

Don't expect a ghost walk if you go on this tour as it is more of a history lesson. We payed £5 each and the tour lasted an hour and a half which I thought was very good value for money.
Even though only four of us showed, Alice still took us on the tour and gave it her all, which I thought was excellent.

I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone, especially those with a interest in history like myself.

This tour lasted about 90 minutes. We chose it as we wanted one that was suitable for me - I am an eight year old girl. Our tour guide was Mad Alice, she was really fun and knew lots about the history of York - especially the gruesome bits! This attraction did involve a slight bit of audience participation, but not too much to feel uncomfortable about. Overall an epic tour!

Right from the start you know you're going to have an awesome tour when you spot the arrival of Alice. Her costume screams a fun evening of history and her jovial personality backs it up. Her knowledge is impressive and delivers the darker history of York by interacting with her audience. There were only 3 others in my tour group, so, it was more intimate than your usual tour
