    Mackenzie was the highlight of our visit to York - she made everyone feel really welcome and put 100% into the story telling bringing the ghosts ‘to life’. Would definitely recommend especially for families looking for something a bit different to do in the evening. Mackenzie even walked us back to the pub afterwards - a fantastic experience and excellent value for money 👻

    Mackenzie is a great story teller and us all captivated with the gruesome tales and history. Our 13 and 14 year old really loved it - and so did we!

    My daughter and I attended one of the Shadows of York 23/10/21. Very well organised, informative and full of historical facts along with a touch of darkness and ghostly tales. Very easy to book would highly recommend.

    Enjoyable fun walk. Good stories and friendly engaging guide. Small group so more personal experience. About 1.5 hours. Would recommend

    An entertaining walk through the back roads of the city centre with a knowledgeable and amusing guide.

    All of it. An hour and a half well spent. Picking through the sad, sometimes cruel and supernatural history of York, we saw corners of the city centre we'd not seen before.
