“Bill Spectre: Master Showman”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Mr. Spectre combines bits of real history (Oxford's more grotesque side) with magic and a thespian's timing and delivery, making this a couple of hours of pure fun. Enjoyable for all ages, high brows and low. I suggest you make room for an evening of this showman's entertainment. Everyone on our tour (some 30 of us) left with a broad smile.

“Fantastic fun; a very entertaining amble round old Oxford”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We joined Bill Spectre's Ghost Trail not really knowing what to expect - and we ended up thoroughly enjoying our guided walk around beautiful old Oxford. Great fun; well presented. Next time we have friends coming to visit us here in Oxfordshire Bill's Tour will certainly be on the agenda.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Bought this for my partners birthday and it was such a good experience, informative and entertaining. Could not recommend it more, especially to those with children. This is the ghost trail to do in Oxford, accept no imitations!

“Fun two hours”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Having been on many tours they are all different intheir own way, the guy is fun and entertaining whilst still being informative. He tells historical facts but works......you'll have to go to see. Best part of two hours, lots of fun.
