Really enjoyable evening. The stories were good, the host was funny and gave a good insight to the old York. Minimal walking on the tour (one stop and a 5 minute walk maximum). Tour lasted about an hour and a half. Would recommend as an alternative tour of York.

Lights on the bus meant you couldn't see anything outside. No ghosts seen, the guide did her best with poor material. This experience was embarrassingly bad and was a treat for a friend

Conductor was very friendly and enthusiastic. Not really worth the money however if you’re at a loose end it’s something to do.
