Met at the shambles at 7.30pm on a very rowdy Saturday evening, (about 50 of us) He was dressed the part, in black cloak and top hat( he didn't tell us his name...said it was unimportant!) He had a good strong voice so you always heard him above the pub goers. 4 ghost stories were told in around 1 hr... More

The man that leads the Ghost Hunt tour is quite a character. He does an excellent job bringing drama and humor to the tour. Overall it was worth the few quid.

Very good fun and entertaining. Enjoyed it very much. The guide was great. Only costs 5-6 pounds depending if you have a coupon. Fun way to spend an hour walking around York and learning a few facts.

Three minutes in he made jokes at an audience member and continued to point him out the next thirty minutes (we left at 30min). He asked for upfront payment without really engaging us. There was one girl who walked off at this point and I wish it was us. Not worth £12 when there are sooooo many other great ones... More

Did this ghost walk on Saturday night, along with around 25 other people who met at the Shambles at 7:30pm. It costs £6 per adult, £3 for children. The first ten mins is taken up with gathering payment and then you're off! For a gentleman getting on in years, he didn't hang about! You are led through the streets of... More

I convinced my partner a ghost walk would be a good idea before an evening meal, I have been on walks in a few cities and really enjoyed them, after this one I don't think I will be able to convince him to go on another one. There were only 4 stories none particularly interesting or related to the history... More

Did the ghost hunt with my husband last night. We both weren't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed it. Starting from the Shambles at 7.30, you go through the streets of York hearing various ghost stories along the way. Lasted just over an hour. The hour flew by and we were actually a little disappointed when it finished, we... More

As the title.. my 2nd time of taking the ghost hunt in York, this time round, with my wife which I was keen to introduce to the hunt. We had a fab time and I was personally delighted by the growing popularity of the hunt. The professionalism, and the story telling remains amazing and really brings you into the history... More
