Going down the spooky alleyways and gathering by very old churches and hearing ghostly stories was a good way to see York. She made you appreciate the history of York.

The tour was excellent throughout! The lady we had did a fantastic job of grabbing our attention and made the whole walk really interesting. Loved the mixture of facts and ghost stories. A great way to see the sights of York too. We were visiting for the weekend, and thoroughly recommend going on this walk, especially at night. Great value for money, worth every penny!

Mackenzie is such a fantastic storyteller that you are just sucked it from the get go! Really do recommend if you want to do a tour of York but not just a standard one. The added spookiness of the stories is really fascinating.
