Brilliant for the whole family!

It was a brilliant tour! The guys went out of their way to make it thoroughly enjoyable for the whole family. Lots of family friendly scares... 👍🏻 Interesting content tour of York too for the adults. Only reason for the 4 stars rather than 5 is when you do the little mini walk into the shambles it was really hard to hear the main guy speaking! Maybe a walking mic would be worth the investment!! But other than that,, FAB experience 👍🏻 Very well done through covid too....

Absolutely loved it - a complete cheesefest but so enjoyable. Jackkie T Ripper was sensation, devilish and mischevious and kept us all entertained. Bob the bus driver was erratic and slightly deranged. What more could we ask. Even the teens were entertained which is a feat in itself.

Wouldn’t recommend
Samantha_J

I wouldn’t recommend the tour unless you have children, the guide must have been new as he was reading from a script, the effects were rubbish. The one stop we made was boring and definitely not scary. It certainly wasn’t worth the £38
