Great bloody tour of York. Really good fun. Alice's memory for names is phenomenal, which means the tour feels really personal. Takes approx 1.5 hours and you visit different areas of central York while being given the gruesome details. Absolutely worth it

Mad Alice's tour was fantastic. She was so informative with all the ghost stories and was very funny.
I found her easy to engage with and all the stories very interesting. She remembered everyone's names and who was in each group which gave the tour a personal touch as well.
I will definitely be recommending her tour to everyone I know.

Mad Alice was engaging, friendly and funny. She strikes just the right level of gore for all ages to enjoy!
Her passion for, and knowledge of, her subject shines through and our history loving 11 year old thought she was just wonderful.
I think if you named any town in the UK, she would have a fascinating fact or story for it. She isn't just trotting out a memorised script, she obviously has a real interest in historical and ghost stories.
Thoroughly recommended to anyone and everyone.

An absolutely fantastic tour. Alice has an amazing ability to remember everyone's name. Her knowledge of and passion for York's history is delivered with humour, animation and really brings life to all of the gruesome tales.
Would totally recommend for everyone.

Really enjoyable trip walking round York. Mad Alice was knowlegable and fun. She remembered most people's names, and there were about 40, included everyone in the tour with lots of jokes, interesting facts and the right amount of audience participation. Good introduction to anyone visiting York.
