Our family all thoroughly enjoyed this tour and it is the perfect way to spend an evening in York. Gary is a fantastic host, very funny and engaging. Our kids (9 and 13) both had a great time. The ghost stories were told in a suitably theatrical manner and included interesting local history.

We loved the Ghost tour, we were entertained for the whole 75 minutes. He was very interesting and very funny.
I certainly would recommend booking this tour with this man as he really isn’t to be missed if you are planning a visit to York.

My friend was visting from Berlin but is also Greek and wanted to visit York for ages. We decided a few days before going we wanted to do a ghost tour. Therexare many to choose from but the reviews for this one looked.
We were not disappointed, from the moment we meet the Ghostkeeper we knew we were in for a fun time.
He is very knowledgeable but his touches of humour in his stories were funny, he also integrated the group into stories and made you feel very inclusive.
We did over run on time which was fine for our group as we were having such a great time. And we never felt rushed and the Ghostkeeper took time to answer questions and also enlighten us on lots of things about York not just ghost. Ask about the giant Turd on Tour story, Vikings will never be the same again! It was a shame to end the tour.
We made some great memories of our time in York and this one will be a firm favourite.
If you get a chance to go on this tour, GO! You won't be disappointed.

Great, informative, paranormal walk/tour of York. Gary has a good sense of humour and knew alot about the history and alleged hauntings associated with places dotted around the centre of York. Gary is natural at story telling so keeps you interested throughout the walk/tour.

We went on the tour on a Sunday night which I recommend as the streets were relatively empty which added to the eariness.
The Ghost Keepers garb and persona were wonderfully creepy so first impressions were good. The tour was full of wit, humour and audience participation when it was encouraged. So no one was put on the spot if they obviously were shy.
All round the Ghost Keeper was a fantastically spooky host.

Definitely recommend this tour. Our guide had us laughing with his side jokes but was also very informative. The stories told were very good. He didn't rush us around the tour.

Sorry, but I was highly disappointed with my experience with Gary the Ghost Keeper.

The guide belittled other ghost walks and made severe and dangerous accusations of a rival company. It is a clear indication of unprofessionalism of Gary.

I would not recommend this to anyone. I would suggest anyone looking for a paranormal experience in York should save money and buy a guidebook that would provide more information on the area.

In conclusion, my overall experience with Gary the Ghost Keeper was a complete letdown. Instead, I was left feeling disappointed and unsatisfied. I would not recommend this to anyone, mainly due to its unprofessionalism of Gary.
