Really interesting to hear about the history of York. The ghost stories gave you a bit of a chill. The tour guide really knew her stuff and was very enthusiastic telling the stories

Awesome stories that had historical and spooky elements in each of them. I would highly recommend it for a great evening event.

Danny was a great tour guide - he told each story with real passion, and kept me very spookily entertained

Dan was a fantastic story teller he kept the group engaged with his humour and knowledge. The tales he told were a little spinetingling but were not too scary for the younger members or the group he kept us all fully entertained. Would highly recommend if you get the chance.
