Ghost tour was 100% worth it. Not just a ghost tour, the historic information was brilliant. Mrs Cruncher who guided us was so entertaining. The paranormal interactive experience at the end was amazing. Me and my boyfriend are in our 20’s and wasn’t sure how good it would be, but it was brilliant. we also had recommendations for pubs at the end. 10/10

We did the tour with just two of us and a guide - Mrs Cruncher - and it was excellent. A great way to see the city and we learned all about its history as well as all of the grim stuff from the ghost tour part Was lots of fun and would highly recommend it.

Clear instructions on where to meet and guide made herself known to us. Really interesting, fun and interactive experience. Guide was really engaging and funny. Good use of props ! (You'll have to go on trip to find out more !!)

This tour was amazing! Our guide did a wonderful job setting a very spooky mood, and brought a verve that truly made this an engaging experience. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

Our guide was wonderful and kept us engaged throughout the tour. She was informative, engaging, funny and very theatrical. We all loved it and made a perfect ‘work do’ very special . Thank you
