“Ok but there is better ones”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

We have done most of the ghost walks thats on offer in York. However this one we had not done..until now. Meeting at Jovik which is out of the way of all they other tours so we thought we would hear some very different stories. Which was true we did hear a couple of new stories. Our issue was the creeper was very boring and we didnt feel he really cared about what he was telling us. He did start off very well though with great presence but it didnt last... im sorry to say I was a little disappointed.

“Ghoulish fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

This tour was great fun.
As someone else suggested on TA, we did the tour on the first evening we arrived, so we got to see places in York we may have otherwise missed and also got the whole haunted tour experience at the same time.
This guy was very funny (very dry humour - you have been warned), but also informative and clearly interested in what he was talking about. Great for adults and kids alike - i think i was more shocked by the horrible tales he described than any of the kids in our group.

We are York residents and this was our first ghost walk. We really enjoyed it and Gary is very entertaining and funny. We loved his stories and he has amazing enthusiasm. Definitely be recommending to visitors and we are proud to have such a great ghost walker in our city.

“Interesting and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Very good ghost walk although goes off a quite a pace so if unsteady on your feet avoid. Told many interesting stories about the history of York. Not too frightening for young children and kept the children involved all the time. He reacted well to unexpected happenings throughout the walk such as other members of the public not on the walk interrupting him.We were with him from 7.30-9.00 although some of the time was taken up collecting the money (although he was even frightening with this part) It was £11 for one adult and 2 concessions so for a hour and a half good value.

“The BEST ghost walk in York by a spooky MILE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

I attended the Ghostcreeper Tour in York on 14/08/14 with my 22 year old daughter and 12 year old son. We have done several ghost tours in York in the past and to be honest, I expected the same tales trotted out again. But I am delighted to be proved wrong - this was chilling, scary and hugely entertaining throughout! By an (Old) York MILE the best tour I have ever done, with the best host! I cannot recommend this highly enough...anyone who can keep folk of all ages entertained for an hour and a half is definitely worth checking out! Thank you Ghostcreeper! We will most assuredly return for a second helping next time we visit York! Spooktacular!
