Really enjoyed our Ghost Tour of Chester City. We started off early evening and ended in darkness which was appropriate for the ghostly tales.

Our guide was dressed in character, black coat, black top hat with a cane - very polite and very knowledgeable, walking at an easy pace for everyone to keep up. He spoke clearly and at the right pitch so that everyone could hear, even above the traffic which occasionally passed in the street.

Of course a few late comers joined the group, even after it quite clearly states arrive 10 minutes early which means @ 7.20 pm and not past 7.30 pm when our guide had already started !!!.

Unfortunately no ghostly happenings or sightings on our tour but, overall, well worth the money and we shall take another on one of our trips to Chester, and may get taken on a different route to hear more ghostly happenings in the beautiful city of Chester.

WELL WORTH THE MONEY -take an umbrella in case of showers.

The ghost tour was excellent - our guide knew her stuff and presented it in an interesting way - informative enough for the adults but accessible for the kids in the group. We would definitely recommend it.

I booked this tour two days before our visit just to ensure that it would be suitable for my disabled mother-in-law on a mobility scooter. We were not disappointed. The guide was accommodating, sympathetic and patient. The tour was informative, telling us of the history of the cathedral, the Romans and the varied history of the city. With time for photos and questions, culminating in a meeting with the town crier at midday, it was an enjoyable introduction to the city. I thoroughly recommend this tour, which was very good value for money. Do leave yourself time to follow up with a wall walk that we did on a different trip to the city.

This was an interesting tour with an interesting guide. The only thing that stops me from giving it 5 stars is that it is an absolute travesty how the council has allowed the site of the castle to get and it should be open for general visiting, not be part of a secret tour.
