I have only been able to attend a virtual tour with Makenzie but it was amazing, well researched & highly entertaining. I would recommend one of Makenzie's tours to anyone wanting to hear about the darker side of York. Can't wait to be able to go on an actual tour when we are able.

Online tour review- I have watched many of Mackenzie’s online tours throughout 2020 and now in 2021 lockdown and I highly recommend them. The tours are informative, family friendly, interactive and very well researched! I am looking forward to a time when I can attend a tour in person! Thank you for such a fabulous experience! 😊

I've only managed the online experiences so far. However, I have now taken part in five different events and thoroughly enjoyed every one. The walks cover much of York and feature some old and some new stories, and a useful bit of history. Mackenzie is very charismatic and interesting. She takes the time to research and share her knowledge. If you want to spend a couple of hours with a master storyteller, Mackenzie is your girl. I would wholeheartedly recommend Shadows of York and look forward to a real-life ghost walk sometime soon.
