  • What a fantastically entertaining evening! Mad Alice is such a talented storyteller and host. She makes an extra effort to make sure that every single person on her tour is made to feel very welcome. She remembers everyone's name and includes all of you in her tales of the history of the fabulous city of York! Don't expect a ghost walk, as there are already plenty of those. Instead she draws on the bloody, gruesome and fascinating history of this ancient city. She keeps her audience thoroughly entertained and laughing the whole time! She even tries to keep everyone safe on your walks to the various locations throughout the evening. If you're interested in the history of this unique city, this tour is well worth your time and money.

  • Took a tour with Mad Alice after a very long day today, so i was a bit out of gas, but Mad Alice delivered a great performance and energy throughout the trip. She is also knowledgeable with all the facts and stories. Very engaging with her audience as well. While waiting for the tour to start, I had a chance to see a few of similar tours, and I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a high energy booster to keep you engage and sink those horror stories in your brain!
  • We really enjoyed our tour with Mad Alice: the 90 minutes walk through York is absolutely worth its price. Mad Alice is really entertaining, customer oriented and hilariously funny. She is an amazing performer and she shares lots and lots of historical bits as well as “dark” tales about York. We definitely recommend her!
  • An amazing walking tour. Mad Alice is a brilliant guide and kept everything moving on so you barely even noticed you were walking! She's very knowledgeable and you can tell this isn't just a script being memorised; she could answer every question and really knew her stuff! I have no hesitation about giving this 5 stars, I'd give it 6 if I could. Just make sure not to miss this as it's well worthy of all the 5 star reviews it's been given so far!
