Myself and my friend attended this event on Sunday 16th July. We were escorted around some of the focal points of Southend seafront and led down many a tale of the history and ghosts. The comedy was on point and fun for all, the magic tricks were excellent and very entertaining. The hosts, including Tracey Wise, were clearly very skilled and they both read the audience very well to adapt to their needs.

Due to the amount of us and speed of walking the tour overran but we didn’t have plans afterwards and we were genuinely enthralled by the stories. I wish I had done this tour years ago!

My touring top tip is to take a flask of something to drink with you and enjoy yourself!

What a great experience! Though I have lived in the area all my life, I was surprised at how much history there is just in this small part of the town (sorry, City!).

Adrian and Tracy have a very friendly and fun approach which was very entertaining as well as bring informative.

I would highly recommend this to all families, friends and couples of all ages both local or just visiting

Tracy and Adrian are great fun entertainers with fantastic stories about the history of Southend, mixed with stories or murder, mystery and even a little magic. Wonderful family entertainment and I’ve learnt new things about Southend I never knew. I would recommend this to anyone.

We arrived at Royal Square and Tracy our guide was there to check us in and right from the start Tracy was engaging with the 'audience' before the tour even started which bode well. The walk was at a nice pace to suit all abilities and at different stopping points Tracy gave some history and 'spooky' tales with magic tricks thrown in to enhance the experience. Tracy's voice was amplified by a portable speaker so it was not difficult to hear. The delivery of the tour was outstanding, Tracy just made you want to listen to her and executed it all in a theatrical and professional way. We loved it so much we will be booking other tours that Tracy and Adrian have developed. A BIG thank you for some great entertainment.

Met Tracey and Adrian at 4.30 outside The Royal Hotel. Such friendly and engaging people right from the off. Started our 2hr walk along Royal terrace with intriguing tales of historical figures and interesting facts. Lots of magic tricks along the way too. Obviously the tour has been well thought out and researched. We went to little nooks and crannies that would easily be missed and passed by. Really can't recommend this tour enough and will definitely be booking future events which I know they have coming up. Saw southend in a different magical way last night 🌙 ✨ A big thank you from all of us See you at Shoeburyness and Halloween

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this 2 hour local guided walk around Southend and was greatly entertained and amazed by the stories.. and the magic. 2 hours of very interesting insights to my own home town which I did not know or had not noticed. Their research is very thorough and the delivery is very good. I would definitely be looking out for other events by Adrian and Tracy. The Halloween 0ne sounds very exciting

Yesterday was the first of three tours booked for our group. I was thoroughly impressed with our hosts Adrian and Tracy who gave us a most wonderful informative, magical, fun and enlightening tour around our town. I would thoroughly recommend that you book your place with them, and enjoy the Mystery on Sea. We shall be booking even more tours next year....
