Mad Alice is the best tour guide we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. From the first minute and throughout the tour she had us laughing and enthralled at her stories. Her recall of names in our group was incredible and as a result everyone felt included. We have done five tours during our stay in York which were all great but this by far tops them all. This is an experience but too be missed. Thank you mad Alice from Laura and Elaine

Friendly, informative and funny throughout. Alice was very engaging and great with quite a large group and chatted with individuals between stops. Family friendly but not dumbed down or insipid. Importantly, even though I wear hearing aids and often struggle to hear at with others, Alice was clear all the time.

I went on the tour with my partner and his family, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! We were all super impressed with Mad Alice's knowledge, storytelling skills, and enthusiasm. The fact that she memorised peoples names and interacted with people in the tour was awesome and made the experience even more special. 10/10, would definitely recommend to anyone passing through York!

It was a great tour. Mad Alice was very entertaining and knowledgeable. She gave enough detail to make the tour interesting but not too much to making it boring. She took time to learn everyone’s name and to make sure they were included

Mad Alice was a brilliant host, and had a scarily accurate knack for remembering people's names. It made everyone feel very welcomed and personalised things a bit. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who comes to York as a great bit of history and humour.

The guide - Mad Alice- was amazing- funny, warm, informative and she has such an amazing memory that she knew all our names from bookings and then knew the names of everyone throughout and talked to all individuals in such a friendly and engaging way. We told her she should perform at The Fringe as she would be very good!!!

Mad Alice not only gave us lots of factual information as we walked around York, she made it humorous. There was some audience participation at the end and it made everyone laugh. She remembered everyone's names and referred to each of us throughout the tour, which was a nice personal touch. The hour and a half went very quickly.
