Mackenzie is very knowledgeable & clearly loves the macabre. She took us to various sites that had history but also where strange ghostly sightings have been reported. Tour is approx an hour & a half & was good fun. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I booked onto the walk as he had never been to York before so I thought it would be a good idea to give him some history and I do love a ghost walk! We both really enjoyed the walk where we was given loads of information, mixed in with humour. Definitely recommend booking onto the walk.

Found the tour really interesting. The plague house, little girl , there must have been so many more... walking over graveyards. Our tour guide really made me think. Realised later the house before my current was old Victorian with an old and massive chimney. Food for thought...
