We lucked out and had a private tour with Richard. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable about both the history of St. Andrew’s as well as paranormal experiences. He happily answered our questions and also made plenty of good jokes :) Interesting guy, ghosts, and tour!

Fantastic tour, really informative. Much better than the usual scary story ghost tour, as you're told much about the history of Saint Andrews and origin of many of the ghosts that have been seen around the town. The tour guide, Richard, was great - held the groups attention really well, was very insightful, and was able to quickly answer any questions and queries. Would absolutely recommend.

We did this tour on Wednesday last week at 9pm...what can I say other than it was absolutely fantastic!
This is a great ghost tour, interesting and insightful, without the gimmicks. Richard is a very entertaining guide, simply because he is very engaging, humourous, and clearly extremely knowledgeable about his subject. We could have easily spent the whole day with Richard and I suspect you would just be scratching the surface of his knowledge of the paranormal and the ghosts of St Andrews. After the tour had finished we took the time to go back around some of the places we had been taken to, we both very much enjoyed this tour, the 90 minutes went by in the blink of an eye.
I would totally recommend this tour to everybody, if you are only in St Andrews for a short time, put this at the top of your 'to do list'.

My wife and I really enjoyed this tour it was very interesting and insightful. It was a pleasure to hear some of the history of the buildings and stretches of road in St Andrews and ofcourse the ghosts that occupy them. The tour guide, Richard,made it a very enjoyable tour and the hour and half really flew by. If your thinking of booking this tour I couldn't recommend it enough you won't regret it.

thoroughly Enjoyed this. First time going on a ghost tour would highly recommend this to any one interested in the history of st Andrews and paranormal activity.richars knowledge was spot on could have listened to the guy all night . I’m very sceptical about this but seen 2 silhouettes travelling across a high wall even went back and checked the area once the tour was finished. Don’t know why any one would be up such a high wall at that time of night and the direction they were going in led to know where except to a large drop . Highly recommend

A worthwhile 90mins walking tour of St Andrews by Richard Falconer, who is a very knowledgeable historian and paranormal expert. There are no jumping out things or guides in ancient garb, but if you are looking for an interesting, thought-provoking tour by an established author of Ghosts of St Andrews. We were fortunate to have Richard to ourselves, which made for a very personal tour and allowed us to ask him questions along the way....We had to pay attention though!

My best friend booked us in for a ghost tour for my birthday on the 13th of December. We had the best time! Richards knowledge about the history of the town and ghostly encounters were unreal. Very impressive. I have lived here all my life and I learnt so much i didn’t know in just 1H 30 mins. I genuinely did not want the tour to end. Not to be missed if you are in St. Andrews! Definitely a must see!

A must not just for visitors but also for locals like me. Richards knowledge is frankly astonishing and trying to cram so much into a generous hour and a half is still a task in itself.
We learnt so much about our town, I am honestly quite ashamed at my lack of local knowledge. It really is never too late to put down the phones and tablets and pick up some books instead, that’s exactly what I’ll be doing with Richards books top of the list.
I thoroughly recommend doing this tour and maybe if you’re in the right place at the right time like many others have been, you may get more than you expected from it!

This was an excellent tour of St Andrews . We were given both the history and the paranormal activity of St Andrews as we walk around with Richard. It was absolutely fascinating and I would heartily recommend Richard’s tour to anyone visiting the town.

One of the very best ghost tours I've been on! I really enjoyed all the history with it and the fact that all information was based on, well, fact (and genuine experiences)! - Richard was really knowledgeable. We got the see areas of St Andrews we didn't even know were there, which was brilliant! Would highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting St Andrews, and also to those who live there. Kirsty.
