Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Daria was a great guide, thanks! Such a theatrical person and gave some very interesting and spooky context to this beautiful city.

Dorian Deathly, raconteur and guide, took us on an easy guided walk through the centre of York by some of its back streets and snickelways, taking in sights of the ancient city and stories of the Other Side.
Expertly told, captivating, gruesome and humorous, the whole evening was delivered with passion and a twinkle in the eye.

My grandson took me to tour the dark streets of York with Daria Deathly. She proved to be a brilliant story teller, in some amazing places in the evening cityscape. We had to go back the following morning so that he could tell his mum some of the tales!
Highly recommended!

Dara Deathly truly entertaining tour
Brilliant tour for me and my friends. Dara Deathly led us through the streets of York with dramatic and gruesome tales. She was full of enthusiasm, weirdness and humour with interesting stories. Highly recommend and good value at £10 each for 90 minutes of entertainment.

Dafydd was a fabulous entertainer for the full 90 minutes. The walk was great fun and his animated storytelling of York’s ghostly sightings made me laugh out loud (something I don’t do very often) 100% recommend to all ages
