Bloody walking tour of York, simply fantastic
, Jun 2021
Fabulous walking tour around parts of York. Mad Alice was fantastic and her historical knowledge was amazing. Would recommend to anyone
Very interesting, informative and a phenomenal guide
, Jun 2021
Great tour around York, very knowledgable guide (Mad Alice for our group) who really got into character and truly made it an experience not just a walk around the city. Would definitely recommend for any who are interested in the slightly more gruesome side of York’s history with a bit of humour added in as well.
Funny and factual
, Jun 2021
Entertaining and full of interesting historical facts about York over the centuries. The whole family enjoyed it ages ranging from 13 to 20's
Entertaining and educational

Mad Alice kept everyone entertained with lots of grizzly, historical tales. She certainly knows her stuff and made a rainy evening lots of fun!
Great tour

Great stories of the city and well planned route, great host taking us around. She remembers all the groups name!
Mad Alice was BRILLIANT
, Jun 2021
Went on this during a birthday trip for my boyfriend. We're both in our twenties so weren't sure about a walking tour as I always thought it was for the more mature tourist, but this was so much fun! Mad Alice was brilliant, remembering all our names and things about us, made sure she spoke to each group on the breaks walking from one location to another, and had a brilliant library of knowledge and humour! Highly reccomend this!
A must do !

Brilliant. Mad Alice was great. A really fun tour with interesting facts and lots of fun too. Not too far to walk and just about the right amount of time
Well worth it. Really really funny and interesting.

Mad Alice was brilliant, really funny and interesting. I remember lots of the things we were told. Especially what happened to poor Guy Fawkes.
Frightening fun.

Good, ghoulish fun with entertaining dark history thrown in. Highly recommended. Interaction with the audience added a nice personal touch.
