THE GHOST HUNT OF YORK
| HOME |
I visited this Ghost Hunt with my wife and in laws. I am a scare actor, having worked for large scale attractions. So I am often very critical of anything scary, or dark natured. However, while this ghost hun takes a very simple approach compared to many things of this nature, with limited special effects, this was one of the most entertaining experiences I have been on. I could easily go on this Ghost Hunt again. It is informative, yet the guide stays in character, getting screams from the squeamish, and laughs all around. The guide we had, if he is not an actor, he should be. Because despite doing the same tour so often, with the same lines, he keeps it very fresh. I am often bored on ghost hunts and walks, but I didn't want this one to end. I highly recommend this walk, as I saw others in progress around York, and none seemed nearly as entertaining. We all had a great time.

We had a wonderful night last week with the ghost hunt of York, the gentleman is in character from the beginning, we met at the shambles in the centre of York he seemed quite frightening at first in a fun way, then as the evening went on he became funnier and funnier, we travelled around several destinations around the city and heard some sad stories on how people were treated in the old days and got a sense of history the audience are encouraged to join in and that is part of the fun, and this made you comfortable with your own group, the tour took 1 hour 15 minutes and was just right, an amazing amount of thought has gone into planning this ghost hunt and you never feel that it has been done hundreds of times it really made our trip worthwhile many thanks.
I took a group of young Australians and New Zealanders on the tour, all in the 18-30 age bracket, and we had a blast. Very funny stuff, maintaining an atmospheric and spooky edge. Great for all ages, there were children and OAPs on our tour and it was enjoyed by all! Definitely worth a go.
“The Highlight of our break in York - A must!
We had the intention of taking part in a Ghost Walk, but with no real preference of which guide to use. If your going to take a Ghost Walk - use this one!! This was without doubt, the funniest hour and a quarter we had on on our break. The walk is easily manageable for the young and elderly and not designed to frighten, but entertain. The guide was professional and didn't break into a smile for the entire tour. He works on group participation and there is one hilarious "sketch" at a restaurant. This is well worth 75 mins of your time - it's great value and great fun.
Went on the ghost hunt on sat 8th August. the guide was very good at playing his part. Dressed in top hat, cape and doctors bag. He carried a smalll step ladder with him so that we could all see him, he had a very clear voice and was easily heard by all. This walk is not all doom and gloom, and has some very funny moments, if you are after a more serious ghost walk then this is not for you. suitable for children. The walk itself lasts for approx 1hour 30 mins. If you visit their website you can print money off vouchers. You get a ghost walk and a bargain to boot. We all enjoyed the walk and our ages ranged from 10 year to 68 years
My husband and I and two kids aged 9 & 11 took this tour on 17 July 2009 when we were on holiday from Australia. We really had no clue what we were in for and it certainly wasn't like campfire ghost stories. But it was so funny and entertaining. It is slapstick comedy. If you don't have a sense of fun and are going along as a serious collector of ghost stories, then, as I have seen from some other reviews, you probably won't like it. My kids had as much fun on the 'ghosthunt' as they did a whole day at Blackpool Tower. For me, watching my kids laughing and having fun is contagious, if you're the same, take this tour.
I organised a private booking for my husband's 6oth birthday. There were 19 of us and all of us loved the ghost walk. I've lived in York all my life and never tried it before. I would recommend the tour to anyone , any age, great fun, good ghost stories, give it a try! Thanks Andy
We went on the ghost hunt on Friday 19th June and had an excellent time. Humour mixed with the ghostly tales set the right tone for a Friday Night's entertainment. Props were used to illustrate, audience members encouraged to join in and we really enjoyed it. Having never been on such a walk before I was unsure of what to expect but I uld definitely recommend this experience.
“fantasticly funny with ghostly giggles"
Whilst on our holidays in nearby Pickering, myself, wife son(6 years old -going on 60) were looking for some way to spend our evening which would entertain 2 old misery guts and a 6 year old that never stays still for 5 minutes. After feeling we had been robbed blind by going to see many of York's famous attractions this needed to be good and we were not let down, our son was fascinated by the stories he heard and watched in delight with the showmanship. We had a good laugh and were shocked as well. The fun element was always there so we did not have to listen to a monotone guide as the norm drone on and on and on. We have been to York many times and our son has already said he wants to go on this ghost hunt again. We highly recommend this hunt to every one. Great for family and children, you will love it. many thanks, Craig, Caroline and Daniel. Barrow in Furness Cumbria
An Absolute Must
Did the ghost hunt on Sunday 17th May 09 and it is the best £5 you will spend on your entire stay in York. The stories are accurate, they're not meant to be scary, just make you think. The walk is very funny from start to finish and Andy our host is an absolute master at making you laugh. Thank you for a great 75 minutes Andy, brilliant
Way more entertaining than we had dared to hope!The family went on the Ghost Hunt, starting at the Shambles, and we all had an amazing night! Far better than we expected, the Walk was more like street theatre, it was extremely funny, and scary in equal measures, but suitable for the whole family, including a notoriously nervous 8 year old, who still sneaked her way boldly right up to the front at each stop!! The Guide was absolutely fantastic, he kept the crowd absolutely enthralled from the moment he paced up the cobbles of the Shambles, until the very last. A truly memorable evening, and by far and away the best value entertainment we have had in a long long time
This was a great addition to our weekend in York...a good mixture of story and humour...kept our 8 year old very happy and more than amused sceptical ancient parents...would have spent a lot more for such a good time at the theatre...recommend to anyone.

“A Fantastic experience - The Ghost Hunt of York”
My husband and I have done many ghost tours
around the country, but the ghost tour of York is by far the best.
Andy's unique style of presentation was very interesting and compelling, as well as amusing. His tales will keep you gripped throughout the hour and a bit walk. He will even invite you for a friendly drink afterwards to talk about ghosts and your own experiences!!!
10/10 - I cannot recommend it enough, great value entertainment and not to be missed if you visit York.
Fantastically entertaining and lively interactive experience!What a fantastically entertaining and lively interactive experience! This is not just a ghost hunt, its over an hour of adventure, comedy, mischievous tricks, haunting stories and practical jokes! This provides a talking point for hours afterwards, I would recommend it as the best experience of York that is possible in your visit! This really is a must on anybody's itinerary, don't fall for the other boring ghost walks, this is the world-beater of them all!
14th Sept 2008
York - apparently the most haunted city in the world ,so no trip would-be complete without a ghost walk! But with so many to chose from, it can be daunting to pick the right one! The thing is, no matter how good the leader of any ghost hunt is, they can't make ghosts appear on cue! So this particular ghost walk is without doubt, THE BEST entertainment you can get for £5. I can honestly say that this walk made our stay in York. I have never laughed so much for 75 minutes! Andy, the fantastic entertainer who led our walk, was superb and the tales he told were historically accurate (we checked!). And the hilarity at the Italian restaurant.........!!!!
Thank you so much for one of the best memories you could have given us!
Joolz and Andy from Norwich.
Wayne & Janet
We went on your tour on Sunday20th and enjoyed it very much, we even went back next day to see where the girl had fallen from the top of the stairs!(it WAS a long way down!).Thanks! Ally & Martin
12 May 2008
Would like to say what a brilliant evening we had. I have lived in York for 20 years but have never been on a haunted walk but with 19 other friends it seemed like the ideal opportunity and we all had a great time.
Thank you for a most entertaining evening, it was a really fun way to end what had been for us a brilliant day!
6 May 2008
I went to York by myself and had a fantastic time. It's a beautiful city and I wasn't planning on participating in Shambles the ghost hunt but I'm truly happy I did, so worth it. Andrew, our host was amazing the way he kept everyone's attention even though the weather wasn't the greatest. Something else I really appreciated was that he invited everyone to join him at the pub for a drink afterwards so we got to know our host a bit better and it was a great way to meet others as well. I highly recommend it to everyone who goes to York. Thanks again!
7 April 2008
I just had to contact you and thank you for a brilliant experience on the ghost hunt. It was very funny, yet quite sinister and scary! We thoroughly enjoyed it and it was the topic of conversation for a while afterwards! I would recommend it to anyone as the best of all the rest!
17 Februrary 2008
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the ghost hunt on Sunday . It was a very cold evening but no one seemed to mind that. We were thoroughly entertained.
Yours Andy and Mary
14 Februrary 2008
just a quick email to say thank you from myself and the pupils for the Ghost Walk on Wed 13th Feb. Our guide was fantastic, and if you could pass on our thanks to him I would really appreciate it.
I am hoping to do the same visit again sometime, and I will definately be getting back in contact with you to organise another Walk.
Once again, thanks for the walk, the kids all said it was one of the highlights of the visit,
All the best,
To sum this evening up in three words, fantastic, interesting and funny what more can I say. Well worth the money and great for familys as well.
Prior to arriving in York, we had heard from several sources that the Ghost Hunt of York was the best of the ghost walks. We are so glad we followed that advice. Our whole family really enjoyed Andy and his antics. He was quite entertaining and kept everyone enthralled throughout the walking tour of the haunted sites of York. Thanks, Andy!
What a fantastic evening we had, altogether there were four of us but were joined by around 100 others, very humorous, very informative and the joke at caesars was hilarious, we came to visit York to specifically join the hunt and were not disappointed, even though the weather threatened. will be recommending to everyone visiting York. Thanks once again for a wonderfully, fun evening. Janet, Adrian Dunn and Maxine, Dave Turner, Stockport, Manchester.. PS. still finding 'maggots!!'
My husband and I went on the Ghost Hunt of York located on the Shambles at 7:30pm. Dan was our host and he made the entire hour and half more than entertaining. His delivery and total control of the audience was great. This part of our trip to England has been made very memorable by going on your tour. My husband being from the South just north of London has never been to the North in 39 years. So my encouragement to venture into a new territory was most enjoyable for the both of us. Thanks so much and I will encourage anyone else I know who is planning a trip to England to visit the historic town of York and go on the Ghost Hunt tour at the Shambles at half past seven.
I would just like to thank you for the marvellous Ghost Walk we experienced yesterday. The students had spent a long day in York and we starting to get cold and tired but our guide, Dan, soon snapped them out of it. He was excellent, very entertaining, we laughed, we screamed, we were spooked and some of us even cried - the don't like blood!!!!! I can't remember the last time i laughed as much as i did throughout the whole of the walk. The students loved it and that was all they talked about on the journey home, some even got his autograph.
I will certainly recommend your walk to others I talk to it was brilliant. Thanks Again

Dear Mr. Dextrous Just thought you might like to know that the ghost walk was the highlight of our holiday in Yorkshire, and that I, and the four little girls who accompanied me are still chuckling about it now. I am sure you will remember us. I have brown hair and am 6 foot tall. They were smaller. best wishes Colmar
in case you've forgotten, this is your erstwhile friend in Malaysia. Just a little note to thank you (again) for the wonderful experience. Truly, it was a spectacular treat. How was the night after? As I remember it, it was truly dismal display of England's wettest.
All being said and done, I have waxed lyrical over your little walk. In fact, I think my friends are already fed up with me. And I truly hope that you and your partner fare well in your peculiar brand of macabre mayhem.
As for me, I'm back to the grindstone and wishing every moment that I was still in York. By the way, the museum and the Assembly Rooms were magnificent. Tried getting into Holy Trinity, but for some weird reason, the gates were locked. Oh well, let's hope there's a next time.
Do keep in touch.
I would visit York again just to go on another GHOST HUNT! 10 out of 10, a must..... H.Brooks London
Very professional, the humour was as up up date as the historical content. Very enlightening and entertaining, an experience not to be forgotten. The ghost hunt recieves my praise and thanks, also high recommendation.
I was so frightened that I held another man's hand (Christopher Handshaw's if you must know). I had never held his hand before, and I have no intention of holding it again.
Very enjoyable, many happy memories
Alistair of Barnsley (aged 31)
Dear Mr Dextrous (if that is your real name)
Thank you for the Ghost Hunt, which I went on during the Easter hols with my mother-in-law. I'm sorry that the ghosts were more frightened of her than she was of them. Sorry, but not surprised. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
A most enjoyable evening, and thank you also for your hospitality in that splendid pub afterwards. I fully intend to visit again sometime (the pub and the Ghost Hunt)
Dear Mr Unimportant (well dan that is how you introduced yourself) I went on your tour on the 29th April with my husband,sister and her boyfriend.We have to say what a great and also funny show you put on we really did enjoy ourselves.I would recomend it to anyone for a good night out in York.Unfortunatly we are home and back to reality (but we will be back).We are the one's from Grimsby and i am the one who likes Italy. So thankyou for entertaining us from Heather,Shaun,Andrea and Steve email@example.com
Best fun I've had in ages. Fun,atmospheric, enthralling, mysterious and a laugh a minute. Definately the highlight of my visit to York
I had the pleasure of being a Ghosthunter last night 28th May. I just wanted to say that of all the Ghost walks I have been on in York yours was the best and most entertaining of them all.
I will recommend to anyone should they go to York, they choose you for thier evening Ghosthunt.
I am also Assistant District Commissioner Beaver Scouts for the Scout District of Crompton and Royton and will mention you at the next meeting. Various Scout Groups from our District visit York during the Year so I'll make sure they know about you before they go.
Thanks for a great evenings entertainment and some of the stories were sad which gives a good mix of emotion.
Thanks once again,
Tim Allen A.D.C. Beaver Scouts Crompton and Royton Scout District
An excellant tour, with first class illusions and showmanship displayed by the guide. Good value for money, very interesting and funny. Also got to see another side of York that we hadn't explored. Definatly recommended for future tourists. James & Sharan. Stockport.
Ihave been on your Ghost Hunt on two occasions now ,the last time was in February with my 7 year old daughter.I would just like to say that we both enjoyed ourselves tremendously.Caroline still talks about it even now,and in particular remembers Mr Dextrous and his top hat and the joke that was played in front of the restaurant.She still has the handkerchief he gave her after cutting his wrist!Many thanks for a fabulous evenings entertainment.Iwill be recommending you to anyone I know who is going to York. Deborah Clorley
Rocking ghost walk - did it two years ago and was absolutely hilarious. Three weeks later I was a customer in Ceasars Restaurant......ha bloody ha!
A fabulously entertaining talk/walk which all of us enjoyed immensely. I only wish we had taken the cam-corder along to record it for nephews & nieces. We came across Dan Dent with a privately booked party while en-route to The Shambles and his "character" was as FAB as Andy Dextrous'turned out to be on our walk. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting the area. It is entertaining, informative and, above all, darned good fun.

My parents are back here in Rockford Michigan USA and of their 2 week tour of Europe they rave the highlight to be the tour you took them on and your showmanship. My father, Jack Danielson said he hazed/heckled you in good fun and that you were an excellent host and sport. He asked me to send you some links of his side business, Fairy-Grams By Jack doing funny singing telegrams (of which my mother Donna writes). Unfortunately the ones I sent originally were out of date but here is his new website...

Went on the Ghost Hunt on Saturday 23rd June . . What a laugh ! Dan is one scary man let me tell you !! Looking forward to going again, and to finding out how he does that thing with the knife ! Thanks Dan . . . you made our Saturday night !
Alison (Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire)
Visited York in the beginning of June. The ghost hunt is definitely one of my most treasured memories from the city - IT WAS HILARIOUS!! Go along one nite, you will NOT regret it!
Greetings from the Swede with the American twang
It was magnificent!!!I had a great evening. I really liked the humorous way of telling the stories. What a pity we don't have such a thing in the Netherlands. Our lost.
Melanie van der Mee
I love the site and enjoyed the evening after leaving you my card, please call if you get a chance
Good website. Had to look it up after our splendid walk on the evening of 18th July 2001. We'll be back to sample it again in February (together with a following ale or two!). Thanks Andy! Graham & Sue Wright Cheltenham
Thanks for an interesting and FUN evening. We will tell our friends to go on your hunt. Thanks again. Rob Lewis. www.laurelandhardy.org
Fantastic fun, really enjoyable did not even notice the rain. Highly recommened Donna & Shona Scotland
it was fantastic the man who took us round had a grey beard, and he was so funny and so nice,he even came for drink with us afterwards. thanx for a great time. kirsty xxx
The best £3 (plus beer money in the pub) we spent during our 2 days in York. Dan would give Ann Robinson a good run for her money. Donna and Mick Walton, Arbroath, Angus Scotland
Went on the tour 11/9/01. It was brilliant, the stories were well told, had a good laugh and met a couple from Scotland who we made friends with. The guide who was the younger of the the two on the photo really made it special and he was great company in the old white swan. If anyone has'nt been then you've got to go you won't regret it. Thanks for a great night Carl & Rita
Greeting from San Jose, California! My name is Jill, and my friends in Durham told me to check out your website. We ghost hunted last October while I was over there on a visit. The ghost hunt was wonderfully entertaining and informative, and I'm sure the best 3 pounds you could spend anywhere in the UK! I'm looking forward to next year when I will return to England and to York for more ghost hunting! Blessed be...Jill
hey andy i think the ghost hunt was ace and i am thinking of coming to york again you probably dont remember me but , me my sister and my mum had a drink with you in a pub. from michelle x.
We participated in the York Ghost Hunt on 10th October 2001 and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was recommended to us by a local barman who commented on the practical joke side which Andy made hunters do and it just so happened that the humorous task the barman was asked to do that Scott was picked for. Scott has since decided to take trumpet lessons. Anyway, the whole evening was most enjoyable and thanks for suggesting the drinking session afterwards and enabling us to meet some of the other Ghost Hunters. Take care from the both of us way up here in Aberdeen, Scott 'Trumpeter' McAllister and Screamer Gail.
Just back from a short trip to Yorkshire during this we did your tour on Wed 17th Oct, It was our first time in York which we loved but most of all we enjoyed your ghosthunt our faces were sore with laughing and the kids are still talking about it. Will be recommending it to all our freinds and doing it again ourselves next time in York. "we are the demons of darkness and were coming to get you, wooooooooooo"!!!!!
Jackie, Norman and the kids
Just been on the Ghost Hunt on the most scariest night of the year (Halloween) with around 150 people.
What a fantastic night for both adults and children. Very informative but mixed with lots of humour. Definately a night not to be missed.
Mrs Williams - Cheshire
Thank you, whatever your name is.
My partner and I have now been on your walk twice now.
On the first occasion we thought you were great and this time you were better!
Our two daughters loved your character and when then saw you at your market stall on Saturday morning they were too shy to say hello.
We also went on two other walks while we were there:
"The Ghost Detective" and "Mad Molly"
Both were entertaining but they failed to play the part for the entire performance which really let the whole thing down. You need to be in character for the whole time to really deliver a special result.
You mixture of humour and authority along with your desire to make sure all of the children were included really made this something special for all of the family.
Please include any of this on any other part of the site, if it is of any use to you.
All the best for the winter and thanks.
Steve, Kim, Kirsty and Danielle (From Enfield)
I went on the tour and it was one of the best evenings I can remember, absolutely wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone who'd listen!
I came on the ghost hunt on Thursday 18th Oct with my Mum and Dad. At first I was terrified as this scary, lip curling, bell ringing ghosty man appeared from the dark ally! But, I soon realised I'd be fine on this hunt - even if you were really that scary, we all had to stand so close to each other I knew I'd be safe!
I thought all the ghost stories were great. Your humour is fantastic and your delivery is spot on.
We also enjoyed the drink in The Swan afterwards. It nicely ended a great evening and began a lovely weekend in York. It also gave us the opportunity to realise you are not really a scary, lip curling ghosty man - you are just very good at your job.
Keep up the good work, Mr ......Unimportant,
Marie, Trish and Stu. (Northampton)
Andy, Greetings from the Isle of Man (October 2001)
Thank you for a wonderful evening - the best entertainment in York by a long way. Truly atmospheric and engaging; eery and amusing; adult fun that kids can enjoy. Strangers were brought together so quickly and we enjoyed the post "hunt" camaraderie in the pub. Many Thanks. Best wishes for Xmas and good luck in 2001.
went on the ghost walk at the weekend (2/12/01) and found it to be highly entertaining and informative.I had a few reservations b4 going on it but im glad i did.The guy who showed us around the streets was amusing and scary.I would recommend this tour to anyone and would definitley go on it again
tom and jayne
Dan / Andy Went on your enthralling and humorous Ghost Hunt on Friday 7/12/01. There are only three things to say about it: Hillarious, brilliantly produced and well worth every penny. We can and will recommend your Ghost Hunt to all our friends back home. We will be coming to York from Redditch again in the early part of next Year and will again join you at the Shambles. Happy ghost hunting Paul and Sam Taylor.
Recommended by our B&B host. Fun and Fear all in one ending with a twist in the tale and one for the road. A Great way to spend an evening in York.
Lesley & Naren, Glasgow
What a night.The best way to spend an evening in York.
Thanks for a great time on your Ghost Walk last night. It certainly wasn't what I expected - it was 100 times better!
My girlfriend and I took your tour (with Andy Dextrous, I believe) back in October. We're just a couple of poor American backpackers (I know, I know...backpackers!), but I can honestly say we both had a blast. We've taken tours all over England and Ghost Hunt surpassed them all. If/when we come back, we'll stay in York and take the tour again. Now . . . where exactly do you keep that full glass of wine while you're walking around?
We first went on the ghost hunt on a visit to York when we lived in Manchester. We really enjoyed it and encouraged 8 others to go on the hunt. They loved it too. We liked York so much that we moved here last Christmas and one of the first things we did was go on the ghost hunt again! It was just as hilarious and entertaining the second time round. It all depends on the group you are with. The guides are extremely professional and amusing. Dee Chris and Siobhan. York residents.
Coming to york for the viking festival hope to join you then.
I have enjoyed your web site very much.
George Nicholson firstname.lastname@example.org
PS I will be bringing some friends.
Seldom have we enjoyed being insulted as much as we were on the Hunt. Despite our subsequent fatal accident we will be present on many future haunts.....
Steve & Stef Sussex
We had a great time on the ghost hunt and had a great time afterwards in the white swan! Blowing that trumpet was hard! Take care guys- teesside students - january 2002
Hi. I came last April & it scared me to peices!! My whole group had trouble sleeping that night. Now, as a freshman in College and taking a History of Christianity course, we are talking about the many religious deaths of York and the oldest street in York. Thanks to this, I've been there and experienced the fright.
Dear Dan I went on your ghost hunt last night with my mum and dad and I enjoyed myself but it was a bit scary when you cut your arm love Emily age 7*
we were on the ghosthunt on 12th feb, and it was definatly the highlight of our stay in york,the hunt setting off from the ouse bridge should take some notes from dan on how to conduct a ghost hunt,a really enjoyable evening. cheers again dan!
Dear Mr. Unimportant Thank you for a very entertaining evening last Friday, February 22nd. Despite the cold and windy conditions, the walk around York was the highlight of our weekend. Adam (age 8) has shown all his friends his souvenir bloodstained hankerchief, a very fine lacy one I must add. We will be talking about this for a long time to come, and recommending the walk to our friends. Best Wishes, Adam's mum
Dear Mr Unimportant. Came again on your Ghost Hunt on 26/03/02.Once again had a fabulous time,despite the weather.Never been in the pub afterwards,though before.Ihave just one question for you,where do you keep the glass without spilling it? Keep up the ghost hunting Deborah Clorley
What can I say....? If there's one thing in life I love, it's to laugh!! We were late but fortunately found you with your captive audience in time to join and hunt. I giggled like a kid! Your Ghost Hunt was informative, witty, very professional and above all amusing to the end. It was especially nice that you took the time to take us to the pub and even drank mineral water cos let's face it ... if you took every alcoholic drink offered you'd be a drunk guide! My partner and I had "the best time" and your hunt made our short stay in York! Keep hunting Mr Dextrous .... yours truly Sam and Nick ( 7th March 2002, the late comers) P.S. Gonna put a link onto my site to yours if that's ok?
We had a great time during the ghosthunt!!!
Your acting is exellent, both of you !!!
We've done it twice now, ( with the both of you ) We recomend it to everyone!!!! You are doing a good job!!!
See you, Nike, Inge , Lothar, Jan and Robin Himmels. XXX
Andy I came along on one of your walks back in, I think, October or November 1999. I have never forgotten the sheer enjoyment of the experience and have told many, many others about it. Its all still vivid in my mind - not least when you medically examined me, told me that I was dead and, on my immediate request for a refund, said, with magnificent disdain, that you hadn't given me a speaking part! Also the rush across the road to the restaurant, which was just something else. As I told you at the time, its as much your sense of timing as your sense of humour which makes it all such a treat. I hope you are going from success to success. Adrian Lewis
Mr. Addyman, the guesthouse host, recommended the 'Ghost hunt'to me as soon as I arrived on Thursday 28 March 2002. By 7pm, there I was, on my way to the Shambles. Little did I know it was going to be a fabulous evening! When Andy arrived, ringing his bell, he stood in the middle of the street starring at me. It made me feel apprehensive of what was next to come. But his amazing look and costume let me thought it was going to be an exciting evening. As we made our way through the Shambles, one could feel the excitement of the crowd hurrying behind Andy, making sure not to lose a second of what was happening. Nervous laughter, whispers or even screams could be heard as all walked through tiny dark alleyways...giving you shivers in the back. But all soon to be replaced by hilarity as we all pulled faces at the customers of the Italian restaurant! The tour finally ended in a very lovely pub, where few 'ghost's hunters' exchanged theirs comments enjoying a nice drink. This truly funny and entertaining adventure was to be the start of a fantastic weekend in York. I enjoyed the 'Ghost hunt' so much that I was back on the tour on the Saturday. That evening, due to the numbers of 'hunters' attending the walk, Andy was sharing the tour with his partner in crime, another horror man, Dan, which made the tour even more entertaining as much more interactive. Just few words to conclude: thank you for an unforgetable experience! Armelle Leclef, London.
Had a wonderful and most humorous time this evening around York. Thank you very much indeed for a very good hour's+ entertainment. Nice to chat afterwards. My cousin and her friends thought it was a super conclusion to their week's break. I'll be back with other friends in tow ! I shall make sure our other visitors to Yorkshire do not miss this special evening. Best wishes from 'Mad Margaret'
I have been on the Ghost Hunt twice, and I enjoyed it just as much (or maybe even more) the second time. It's such a great thing that I couldn't make a guess at the number of people I have recommended it to, but the number probably would still be too low. And there's one thing I just have to repeat: Andy Dextrous, your face is the ideal face for the Ghost Hunt Guide. You really look like someone from the beginning of last century, and in my country people would probably describe it as a grave-digger's face, which would only serve to make it the more effective for the job. This is a compliment. Honest. Would I have come twice otherwise?
Peter Mundt, from Uslar, Germany
My brother told me not to miss the ghost hunt. He was right all the way. A most interesting experience, with a great storyteller. I think the ghost hunt is a must for anyone who visits York.
We all had an excellent evening last night and are planning another visit later in the year.Thanks for a brilliant tour very entertaining. Steven Sainsbury's Stockton.
Went on the Ghost Walk last Friday - great night, great laugh (although it was extremely cold). Have recommended to all friends and family. Great for all ages.
A most interesting experience in the streets of York after dark last September. Now saving for a return haunt in 2004. May see you then. Regards from Merys and Geoff Scott. New Zealand
Came back for Cate's 3rd and my 4th hunt last night. Got the Dextrous version after being "Dented" on previous occasions. Now back at work in the NHS and telling all our colleagues again and Again and AGAIN about the hunt. See you soon.
Cate Williamson and Andy Greenwood
Dear Mr Andy Dextrous, Last Sunday the 19th of May I attended your ghost hunt together with five friends, we could all conclude that it was the highlight of our stay in York. We will definitely recommend it to other people. I already did, but it was hard to describe what it was like. I'd say exciting, fun, scary, interesting, mysterious and probably one of the best things to do while being in York or England! People look at me weird, saying - it's just a ghost walk! No it's not, but I guess they will have to experience it themselves.
I was a bit scared of you when you almost strangled me! See you again, Kind regards from Leicester (and Holland), Nadia Martens Sicco de Vries Sander and Robert Geerlings Stefan Smaling and Egbert Walraven
Hello! I`m a 15 years old girl from Norway. I was in York last week and one day my mum and I decided to go on the ghost hunt of york. That was the funniest thing i ever has done. Our guide was Dan Dent. He was great to tell us things. I loved it all. Hugs from the girl in red long jacket.
We loved it!!! Definitely the best thing to do in York, and never NEVER will we ever go to anything again without having the right money!!!
What a Fantastic Event THE BEST THING TO DO IN YORK!! We loved the Joke on the restaurant. We are going to tell all our friends about the hunt!!! Joe & Gill Kay Darwen Lancashire.
Just wanted to say thanks for a brilliant night Mr Dextrous, we enjoyed the ghost hunt, and will do it again. From Sarah and David, Herts.
Hello Andy Dextrous! we just thought we would sign your guest book and thank you for a wonderful evening. the ghost walk was fantastic, there was lots of laughs to be had, we have recommended it to all our friends. it was also interesting to talk to you afterwards in the pub. we hope you remember us (we are from ipswich) claire, steve and ann
The highlight of our short holiday to York was the fantastic Ghost hunt. My wife and I spent the entire time in a trance listening to the gruesome tales and laughing along with the fantastic host. Incredible value for money and we will both be back very soon. Mike and Mandy of Southport, UK
Andy Dextrous, What a guy! Just a quick thank you for making my visit to York more memorable. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Great stories and excellent presentation. Thinking of dragging a few of my friends along next week so they can experience it for themselves instead of me raving on about it! Cheers Andy Chris - Mansfield
one word, brilliant.
A great evening best value for money in York
A very funny as well as interesting tour around the cobbled streets of York. Highly recommended. David Neal & family.Washington,Tyne & Wear.
We all attended your walk on Tuesday 6 August 2002. Three adults and a boy aged seven. Thank you so very much for a really entertaining hour and a quarter. We laughed so much it hurt- you had the audience (there must have been 150 of us) in the palm of your hand. It was informative and the spookiness was in just the right amount! My son says it was (almost) as good as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang show we saw in London yesterday -praise indeed!! Thank you once again Sarah & Ben Green Guernsey Channel Islands
Fantastic tour( in spite of the weather)........we are still laughing about the stunt at the restaurant. Next time that we are in York we will be back on the tour. But the kids aren't coming 'cos we wanted to go to the pub! How's the unicycle and the whip, Dan? Oh, and the stall with the headbands.....busy man!
Extreme thanks and congratulations on your ingenuity for involving us, a boring 50'ish couple and our many other participants, in a superb 75 minutes worth of street theatre. It wasn't what we expected, it was 1000 times more than that and after accidentally coming across Dan's daytime job I'm sure we'll see more of the fire eating unicycling toilet paper whip ripping ghostly people entertainer for some time to come. Well done lad, its really good to know that talent and genius is still out there.
The exact day of the "Ghost Hunt" is currently a mystery to me. Sometime last week, possibly the Wednesday... maybe the Friday... maybe not. I could spend a while waiting for my memory to provide clarification but I'm not a patient chap. Which is probably why I enjoyed myself so much. The hour and a quarter was well paced, interesting and above all else, hilarious. The inclusion of the audience and the way in such, created a feeling of excitement and trepidation that is lacking in most events of this kind. Time and my train flew by as the tour came to an end and really, this is to thank you, Andy, for the best hour and a quarter of my holiday.
We visited York last week and we decided to go on one of the many ghost tours that were on in York. We were glad that we chose to go on yours as we had a brilliant time. Dan Dent was very entertaining and very funny,we had a great evening.
My wife and I went on the ghost hunt with Dan as our host and what an enjoyable time was had by all.This was our first visit to York and we would not hesitate to return again. Any one who can encourage a large party of people to stand outside an Italian restaurant and pull faces is worth their weight in gold or maggots. Thank you very much for a very entertaining and informative tour. Ian Bewick, St. Neots. Cambs.
a very enjoyable evening, good stories. even the dog barked and the baby cried in the right places. thank-you. Philip and Val Richardson, Manchester
It was really good And the man was very funny when he cut into his hand thankyou for a nice tour of york from annie
Hi Andy, It's heather. I will try to out match that guy who went on your ghost hunt 25 times. It's a good night out when the weather is good. Thanks Heather
Last year in September I was in York..the most beautiful place in Britian in my opinion. I was able to enjoy this tour with Andy D. and afterwards have a beer with him and my 3 other travel companions. I first seen this on the internet and to be able to actually go on the tour and have Andy be so entertaining and informative was an awesome experience I will never forget. I hope to go back some day soon. Kathy U.S. Utah
Bring out the dead! Dan, thanks very much for being an informative and funny host on the ghost hunt. I used to live in Knaresborough and frequent York often. I've gone on your ghost hunt about 10 times and the Ghost Hunt is right up there with must see stops in York. I live back in the states now but when people ask me what to do and see in Yorkshire your ghost hunt and coming to York is always at the top of the list! You can expect a few of my freinds next week infact. - Ron Lyons Annapolis Maryland USA
Went on ghost hunt with Dan on Friday night - Brilliant night - my family were up from Essex & looking for something different & unusual to do - and the ghost hunt certainly did'nt disappoint us. Dan controlled the crowd brilliantly - best laugh i've had in ages - coming again in a few weeks - definately make the pub next time. Thanks for a wonderful time Jules - Hunton - N Yorksx
wet,windy,noisy,politically incorrect and the best fun we've had on the street since the last time!.....thanks Andy & for the chat in the pub after (9th October 2002)from Tina&Steve Shropshire Squires
Absolutely brilliant - Dan had us in stitches throughout the tour, then amazed us with his knowledge of Ozzie Rules in the pub afterwards! A good night had by all, and he got a couple of beers out of us :) Caroline and Christine
We have seen the ghost hunt on 01. October 2002. We only want to say thank you! It was an unbelievable, unique, amusing, mavellous, funny, great, fantastic adventure (sorry but i can´t remember more words of deepest admiration in english ;o). We have been 3 weeks in Great Britain but we will never forget this special evening! A great compliment to Dan Dean! It was one of the greatest experience of our life! We will come back ... just to see the ghost hunt again! Daniela and Thomas, Vienna, Austria
Do you every vary your patter? went on your tour two years ago and fancy another go! Has it changed much? email@example.com
We brought a group of Canadian friends this wednesday and thought it was brilliant! Denise Allonby
Dear Andy and Dan I had the great pleasure of going on your ghostwalk in early September as part of an overnight ghost-hunt at the Fleece organised by GRFI. I have since recommended your walk to anyone who will listen who I know is visiting York. Best £3.00 I've spent in a long time. Cheers Suexx
Hi guys - me and a friend have just been on your wonderful ghost walk, it was very entertaining, a real highlight of our visit to York!! It our second time actually, first with Andy and this time with Dan and, even though we half-knew what to expect, it certainly didn't disappoint. I can highly recommend it to anyone visiting York - 75 minutes of pure enjoyment, full of humour, intruiging *REAL* ghost stories and plenty of surprises!! Thanks, would've loved to have joined you in the Old White Swan for a drink after for a chat but had a train to catch. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org - feel free to e-mail, it'd be great to hear from you!
Four of us went on your ghosthunt not knowing what to expect.But we must say it was a very enjoyable evening. We were joined by about 150 more and no matter where we stood we could always see and hear clearly. The part where he went to cut off his hand has to be seen to be believed.Also I now know one restaurant in York where I won't be eating. If visiting York and you want something different to do I can recomend this experience to everyone no matter what your age.Excellent. Andrew Burn and guests.
We visited York in October, and really wondered which ghost hunt to go on as there are so many on offer. In the end, we decided to go on this ghost hunt, and had a thrilling and entertaining evening as a result, with the younger hunter. We had an extra delight the following day, when wandering York we happened across the same gentleman performing such wonders as fire-eating and whipping pieces of paper blindfolded. We would like to thank you for such an enjoyable evening and assure you that any frields visiting York will be recommended the same. Andrew and Katherine Boldon Tyne & Wear PS We also enjoyed the pub you recommended round the corner from the Shambles.

It's become a bit of a cliché, but the ghost hunt really was the highlight of our trip to York. I thought it would be tacky but was proved wrong. Dan Dent was our guide and since the hunt I've made my boyfriend very jealous with my praise of him! Dan, you should be on television!!! Nicola.
06/12/2002 Time 1930 Andy, What a great evening we had, there were 3 of us but by the time we departed there must have been about 150. We travelled from Cheshire specially to go on the walk,and we enjoyed every minute, especially knocking on the door and running off. I tell anyone going to York they must go on the walk, but the one from the Shambles. Good Hunting Phil,Maureen,Steve
Second time we've hunted for ghosts with you, not found too many, truth be told, but still had a cracking time. Very very funny and the experience provides laughs well after the night has ended.
fantastic entertainment. Not many ghosts but certainly plenty of laughs. You should seriously consider doing a video, we're sure it would be a big seller. Till we meet again, Nick and Susan Davey, Wigan, Lancs.
An overall enjoyable experience, with his serious and also witty humour. How does he keep a straight face. A great turn out on our tour which was saturday the 7th of December
We really enjoyed our chat with Andy in the pub last night on our visit to York. We have been on other ghost tours in York and can honestly say that The Ghost Hunt is the most entertaining. We now wish we'd gone out with you again rather than trying out the opposition, but, like the Roman Centurian in the cellar, we will return! Best wishes to you both. Mark & Joanne from Ilkeston, Derbyshire
I did your ghost walk in 1998 with a friend and I really enjoyed it, I am very interested in ghosts and would love to see one. I have done many ghost walk all over the country and your was one of the best. I even ended up in the pub with the group on the walk. Has anyone had any ghostly experiences while on the walk? Please let me know, my name is Pat and I live in Birmingham. I would really want to go on a ghost hunt, please let me know via the guestbook if anyone would like to meet with me for ghost hunting.
The Ghost Hunt was one of the highlights of our stay in York. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of going there, it is far and away the best one available. It's not too serious and the acting and magic is genuinely superb!!! Keep up the good work!!
One of the highlights of our stay which also led on to meeting new people and finding a gr8 pub to spend our evenings, From Dan and Donna in Derby. p.s. Thanks Andy for recomending The Deep in Hull to us it was well worth the Drive.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the tour on 13/2/03. Thoroughly enjoyable. The kids loved it. A nice blend of theatre and ghost stories. Will certainly go again on our next visit to York. Promise my eldest daughter will scream a bit better when the buried children story is re-told. thanks again Paul, Deb, Laura and Catherine St Helens
I thought the Ghost Hunt of York was fantastic. It was Fun, Funny and True. I would Definatly go again.
Thanks for a really funny and informative couple of hours last Saturday (15th Feb 2002) when we finally caught up with you all (late as ever!!) Loved the outfit too . . . all ghost walks should be like yours - too many take themselves too seriously.
I enjoyed the Hunt on 3 Oct 2002 with my daughter. On 23 February 2003 I'll visit York again, and I shall certainly not miss the opportunity of enjoying the ghost hunt again, this time with my wife. "There are more things between ... etc" Looking forward to see you again. Keep up the good work. H.H (Norway)
Superb -- I would recommend it to anyone! The Ghost Hunters are very good actors and everyone taking part in the Hunt thoroughly enjoyed themselves. And for £3 it is the best entertainment you will ever get! A MUST! Dr Loykie Lomine, Winchester
T'was the night of Valentines Day, while most were enjoying candle lit dinners by warm log burning fires - a select few of only the bravest endured temperatures that would make a polar bear cry. Forget the poncy, lovey dovey dinners, we wanted stories that make us tremble, that would scare the soul, that would curdle the blood ! And so we joined the tour, with the moon and stars shining down - oh and the Worlds Slowest Firework clearly visable. The tour was fantastic - a witty mixture of stories and comedy....MUST NOT BE MISSED. p.s. nice chattin with you afterwards in the pub Dan. Paul & Rhian, Blackburn, Lancashire
We were very pleased to meet Mr Andy Dextrous in the darkness of York on the 27 February 2003. Your stories were terrible...... and you are a very good actor! kind regards from France. Bénédicte and Wilhelm Lang
Lydia,Samantha and Shanice are going on a school trip to york and we are going on the ghost hunt ,if it is good enough for us then we would like to recomend it to our family and friends.
Never laughed so much in my life especially when you picked my wife - Rena - to be your nurse and she had to wipe the blood off your wrist! We went on another tour the day after and the elderly guide was very interested how you explained Grape Lane!! John & Rena, Staffs.
We had a fantastic time-haven't laughed so much in ages, kids really enjoyed it, loved the Italian restaurant gag, Kim still blushing after Roman collumn experience. We'll be back! From Kim,Steve the trumpeter and the kids from Newfield.
What a memorable end to our visit to York. Superb story telling and acting by Andy, could not stop laughing. Scared the pants off the kids and nice to finish off with a beer at the end.Keep up the excellent tour.Alan,Tracy,Darren and Kirsty.Newcastle Upon Tyne.
My wife and I took the Ghost Hunt in Sept. 2002 on a cold and rainy night. Dan was our spirt guide. He walks the walk and talks the talk. A great experience for the both of us. He played off my wife and was shocked by her quick and snappy returns. A great time. She still has the bloody hankerchief given her by Dan. We should have something like that here in Los Angeles, California. We hope to return and do it again this fall.Frank and Gayleene Bielman, L.A. California, USA

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT night,will definatly come again.(pardon the pun) Michelle & Liam Ticehurst Cheadle,Staffs
I and our party of six went on the ghost hunt on Sun 27th April 2003. A truly excellent experience highly enjoyable. Indeed it was after being on a previous walk in 1998 that we returned this time. All of our party left feeling we had really experienced the best one of Yorks many quality attractions and Mr Dextrous performance was fantastic. So glad I wasn't singled out ! We feel a need to congratulate JEFF also. The tall scouse bloke on our hunt who through the sheer embarrasment of being so publicly singled out made it a night to remember. Such a good sport. Thanks again, Neil,Vicki,Sally.Rodrigo,Alan & Mairead. LIVERPOOL.
We done the ghost hunt on Tuesday 29th April 2003, and it was a great evening. Our host was nothing short of excellent, informative, and very funny. If you are reading this, thinking "shall I shan't I..." The only advice we can give, DO THE GHOST HUNT, from The Shambles. After the hunt, we joined a our host for a drink, and were joined by an American couple, and Australian couple who had been on the hunt. It was a very pleasent end to the day. Once again, Thank you Paul & Bev Butler Weeting Norflok.
We went on the tour on Monday 2nd June 2003. It was both funny and informative and well worth the money. We thoroughly enjoyed it and found it a great thing to do whilst in York. Our host gave a great performance and had us all in fear of him yet laughing constantly. Would highly recommend to all. Ian and Janet Brooks, Newcastle upon Tyne.
i love your ghosthunt i would not recomend it for young people the man gets very wet i would definitely go onit again
Looking forward to joining you on our visit to York in August
A thoroughly enjoyable experience, jam-packed with hilarious tales and events. It was the highlight of our trip to York and will be remembered vividly for years to come. Well done. Grace and Lee Robertson, Auckland, New Zealand
Hi. Was on your walk last night (Sunday 13th July 2003) and whilst it was an entertaining experience I felt that the "ghost" side of things was fitted around the "entertainment". I think all in all we were told 4 tales of ghosts that took approx 5 mins each. Definately entertaining but as for a "ghost walk", I think not.
HI!!!! This is Charlotte who came on your ghost walk last week .I am a VERY true beliver in ghosts and the paranormal. I live in Tamworth , WEST MIDLANDS and I came to York on a holiday and the ghost tour cheered me up after a lond tireind walk around the Town and Minister... Good Luck Ghost Hunt in the future. XxXxXx P.S I had tremendous NIGHTMARE'S!!!!!! (From Charlotte Bacciochi , Age 11 from Tamworth in West Midlands)
Hello there, I'd just like to say on behalf on my boyfriend and myself...YOU ROCK! We came to York at the end of July and the Ghost Walk by Dan Dent was one of our highlights. In fact we loved it so much that we have dedicated an article about it, on our arts page of a website we write for - feel free to take a look. www.uk-fusion.com/arts/ghosthunt_york.html Thanking you kindly. Jo
I do not wish to offend, but feel I must comment on your Ghost walk. Though I have not actually been on it myself, I have spent the past half hour on this website, and cry at what I have read. I am a proffessional medium, and stumbled across this site purely by accident. I would like to say to you, that if you advertise a ghost walk, it should be just that. NOT PURELY for entertainment, but conducted by people who know something about the afterlife. Like I said, I dont want to offend, but pleaser take note of what I have said, and all the best to you
i did this ghost walk 3 years ago on my honeymoon,it was very interesting and thoroughly entertaining and the guy who did it was a pure genius who managed to keep the whole crowd enthralled to the very end.i could have been their until midnight and i wouldn't have been bored!!i can't wait to bring my daughter this year to give her "the ghost walk "experience,and i am always recommending this as excellant entertainment and value for money!!!!!
hi i went on the ghost hunt this summer i found it very entertaining, i felt queesy about the knife thing because of domestic violence me and my mum went through i still feel queesy about it now. I give it 10/10, christopher norwich norfolk.
My daughter and I went on the Ghost Hunt on Saturday night (23rd August 2003). It was the night after her birthday, and she (being a budding goth) was looking forward to it very much. It did not disappoint! We had a fantastic time. We laughed all the way, even when we weren't supposed to be! The guide was fantastic, especially when handling 'Liverpool' (a middle-aged, worse-for-drink 'lady'). The patter was great, the stories interesting and the jokes very droll! Well done guys, we'll be back with more people next time, and have already recommended your tour to at least a dozen people! Thanks for making my daughter's birthday weekend a memorable one. Oh, and one thing... we remember the railings!
absolutely fantastic, seen twice both nights were fantastic and very funny, from scary to side-spliting laughter. I would recommed it to anyone. From Ben, aged 15 Sydney, Austrailia

Dear Andy and Dan,I came along with a group from the dig at York Archaeological Trust who loved every minute of the tour.I hope to introduce another batch of trainees to the event when I return week beggining 16 Sept,especially for the pub bit afterwards which archaeologists always seem very fond of.Best Wishes, Ged
Thanks for an excellent trip. Hope to see you do a Ghost hunt in Zurich. Good luck with moving to Switzerland. Paul & Monias
the host is as mad as a brush but hightly entertaining well worth the money. pat smith chester
On Sunday 28 September 2003, my family and I came on the ghost hunt with Dan Dent. I would just like to say we have a most enjoyable evening. As promised, we shivered, jumped with fear, but fortunately my husband didn't wet himself!! Our two children would like to come to York again for the ghost hunt. We would recommend this to anyone, a superb finish to our day out in York. The Nugent Family from Huddersfield

What a great evening we had on Thursday 2nd! Such an entertaining and interesting Ghost Hunt I will never forget the Restaurant when else will you get away with something like that!! Brilliant ! Thanks to Andy our guide Alison & Scott Leeds
Brilliant, great entertainment for all old and young alike - The kids loved it and the adult humour was well delivered and thought out as well. Great entertainment for anyone in or visiting York. Keep it up gentlemen.ts
Brilliant,funny,scary but remmember its not the spirits that harm you its the England fans.
Sounds like a really fun tour. I hope I can make it next month. Dorothy Harrists
I just wanted to add my comments to your guest book, i attended your hunt with my Dad and husband, we were joined by about 100 if not more, we laughed so much and learnt lots too, you made a cold evening go by so very quick we would certainly join you again and will tell others about you too, thank you so very much, Dawn Chris and Mark *<:-
We would like to express our thanks to Dan Dent for his prompt reaction and kind attention and concern when the young man in our party fainted on Saturday evening. Thanks too to the paramedic and his friend and the Minster policeman who also came to our aid. We did enjoy as much as we were able, and hope to stay for the full tour on a return visit to York, sometime. We hope that the statue of Emperor Constantine is none the worse for its encounter with the head of the young man, whose egg has now turned a lovely shade of green!!
Hillarious! A brilliant night out and you don't have to worry about bad behaved children as the guide is so scary they just won't mess him about! Good stories and a real laugh. I've been on all of the walks and this is the most entertaining. L Collins Kent
What a great evening we had on Sunday 2 November. Not being a great lover of ghost walks with props, this was really refreshing and was a brilliant nights entertainment. It was so different and funny!! A great way to do a Ghost Hunt!! Regards, Heather, Claire & Nurse Sandy.
We experienced the hunt on Sunday 2nd Nov. It was fantastic - funny, a littel scarey, very entertaining, interesting and much better than we ever expected. I was the trumpeter & my daughter gave what was later described as the best scream ever heard during the life of the hunt. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in York & who is keen on having a really fun evening. It really is a "never forget" experience.
Looks like a fun time -- can't wait to join you the end of this month --
28/11/03 most entertaining tour.I've not enjoyed myself so much for a long time.Totally in keeping with York with a hint of irreverance to balance anyone's desire to take it all too seriously.I would recommend this tour to all. Anne Plymouth
such a great laugh, really worth going!
What a great tour! Thank you for the entertainment and do carry on. To all who haven't see it yet: it's definitely worth the time and the money (and by the way: do not take an umbrella with you ;-)
absolutely brilliant, we came on the tour on the 22nd november, along with 200+ others, i have never laugh so much at something that can be quite a serious and mysterious, just wish i had my camcorder so i could watch over and over, will bring next time for sure, have told all my family to go and experience your hunt, again, thanks very much, all the best in the future, andrew and michelle daniels of worcester

10/12/03 - liam bailey Great, i went with college today and its a must for any visitors to york no 1 should visit york without takin this trip. How dose he keep a straight face!!
We visited York and joined you in a ghost hunt December 10 th and had a great time. We nearly joined you for a drink at The White Swan, however your table filled up fast, maybe next time we visit York... Thank you for adding fun for us on our honeymoon.... Don & Tommie
Dear Andy Anonymous: My daughter and I enjoyed the hell (so to speak) out of your Ghost Hunt. My favorite town on our England trip was York and I'd travel around the world again in a heartbeat (yes, it still does, but after chasing ghosts, with palpitations) to stroll the Shambles again. What a great place! What a great way to make a living! And no, we don't have a dungeon in our basement here in Idaho. :) Gail Frasier
Hello I was on the Ghost walk on the 12th Jan with Andy Dextrous and there were only 5 of us on this walk. Andy said it was the smallest group he had ever taken! It was great fun and yours truly was singled out constantly for fun and games. The walks are interesting, funny, spooky , tragic tales and well worth the £3 for a nights entertainment. Andy asked me to take a look at the site and give him some tips/comments when we were in the pub after the walk. I think the site is pretty much spot on Andy. Fast to load up and the java stuff of you and Dan is good. All it could do with to spruce it up a little, is some more small photos in the pictures section with some of the locations you go to, that people can view, and perhaps some spooky buttons at the top to replace the plain red hyper links. Something themed like ghosts, or tombstones with the words on for HOME and PICTURES etc, other wise leave well alone as it works fine the way it is! Kind Regards Simon and Lois....
A most memorable experience during our wonderful first visit to York. We will be back some day, and in the meantime, we have passed on several recommendations to our friends. Bonnie and Terry Kincardine, Ont. Canada
As the guide said, this will be a night I will remember for the rest of my life. A truely magnificent night and fun-filled entertainment throughout - especially the restaurant! Louise.
Recently attended a Ghost Walk 18th February 2004, was the best nights entertainment my family have experienced for quite a while, was genuinly impressed by the guides attention to detail even down to the welfare of those attending ie crossing roads and various pavement obstacles. Thanks again from all my family and to Andy who's professionalism shone through. Pete Hibbard ( North Lincolnshire )
Great Fun, second time I've been and certainly won't be the last. Thanks for a great evenings fun. Paul Dunning Leicester
Thank you for the hankerchief and a very scary, funny and interesting evening. Best Wishes James (8) Mummy (21) Daddy (very old) Nash
Me and my girlfriend (& family) went on the ghost hunt on the 28/2/2004. It was very amusing, yet strangely spooky. We would recommend the experience to anybody! top value for money!!
I went on the ghost hunt on the 29th February 2004 and will never forget it!! I was great fun, all thanks to our guide 'Andy Dextrous'! I was scared and thorouoghly amused all at once! Was lucky enough to go for a drink with him after in The Swan, very nice bloke. Made our time in York all the more memorable. Would recommend this to anyone-forget about the rest of the ghost walks...this one is definitely the best!
A very entertaining evening! The stories were great, the theatrics even better and the practical jokes-very unique for a ghost hunt!! The follow up at the White Swan was a great way to end the evening, getting to know some of the other ghost hunters and our host, Andy. Would recommend the hunt to everyone, even those of a nervous disposition! Cheers Andy for a really great night. Sarah and Kevin (the trumpeter)

Joined the Ghost Hunt and had a wonderful time. Well presented, excellent props, great jokes - especially at restaurant. Enjoyed it so much we are going to do it all again with our children. Mr and Mrs G Kenrick, Widnes, Cheshire.

I am 11 years old and i'm a very strong believer in ghosts i found this website very interesting and as soon as i go to york this june i'm going on shambles and york dungeons
The only person other than myself to have ever scared my 7yr old son George, very very funny and thoroughly recommended to all ages.
A visit to the most amazing little sweet shop in the world on the Shambles was followed by a funny, entertaining and highly recommended walk around the ghostly haunts of York. What a great day! From Linda, Angie and Bell of Middlesbrough.
I will never be able to hear the term "Well, what a disappointing turn out", without wetting myself, ever again! Absolute gem of tour, which I will repeat given the next opprotunity!
Hi, Absolutely fantastic evening! Well worth every penny of the low low price. Great value, great entertainment. Ewan
Great fun, very amusing. We've tried all the ghost hunts ,this was by far the best. A fantastic evenings entertainment. Nigel & Tracey Gray Grantham Lincolnshire
Excellent entertainment, we had a really good laugh, even though some seriousness was taken for the stories, we were offerd to go back to a pub for a drink after the tour with Andrew, which introduced us to other people on the tour, this took a great turn and ended up with us staying out late and having fun in York. Excellent and recommended. I am taking my teenage children next time, hopefully he will scare them a little. xx
CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT THIS WEEKEND! GRACE SAULT & KAREN McCOURT
We have just returned to Liverpool after a weekend in York and the highligh of the weekend was the Shambles ghost hunt. Brilliant experience and we would recommend it to anyone. Best money spent all weekend. Very, very funny - thank you Keep up the good work - Pat & Rob
Visited York for a few days took in the ghost hunt. It was tremendous fun and also informative. Recommend it to anyone visiting York. Lynne and Mick Gosport Hants
I did the ghost hunt this week (June 10th) with a private party. Thoroughly enjoyed it!! Very original, very amusing. S. Dearden France
i have done one of your walks before and can't wait to come and do another one this year - hope it was the good as the last sara kipling catterick village north yorkshire
My friend and I come from Holland and saw "the Ghost hunt" on television, we always wanted to come to York and when we finally had the chance we of course wanted "to do" the Ghost hunt. What an experience! We laughed all the time. Thank you very much and next time we visit York we will certainly do it again as by then we take some other friends!
Hello. Very nice and useful website. Good work. Thank you.
I'm a visitor to the UK and have been on many walking tours so far. Out of all the tours I've been on the ghosthunt tour was exceptional. It is unique, interesting and absolutely hilarious! Well done Andy! From Leanne, South African
Hi!We went on the Ghost Hunt on Thursday 17th June and had a great time. We would recommend it to anyone that is going to be in the York area.David and Lisa, Dundee, Scotland
Having been on this Ghost Hunt while on holidy in the area, I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone. It was cleverly executed and our guide was an excellent story teller. The kids really enjoyed the audience participation and loved the resteraunt prank. Keep up the good work.
I recently went on a expedition to york, I had been many times, as we live in Lincolnshire, but had never tried a ghost walk. So when a group of us four guides on the 18 july 2004 took part we were in for a treat. The tour was great, we are still talking about it and I hope to return for my birthday on the 5th september, with my family. we tried another walk it was the original one, it was absolute rubbish! we ran off because it was sooo dull, we should have gone on yours again! I will be recommending this tour to everyone. I am going to try out the ghost walk in lincoln to see if it meets with the standard of this! Thanks for a great night, keep up the good work!
I tried this out one July Monday evening. Blimey, that must be one of the best four quids worth I've ever spent! It was an hour and a half mixture of spookines and sadness, but mostly fun & laughs. Don't hesitate, try it! Dino from London
Although we live locally this was our first experience of the 7.30pm Ghost Walk from the Shambles, what an experience absolutely brillient. Best regards Ern & Louise Lindgren, Cawood, York
good tour around york with a funny bloke, looked the part, told good scary stories and kept us entertained throughout the hour and a half.
It was the most fun ive had in my life now i may be 13 but i was nervous.When the guide rang his death bell that did not help.But i was taken of that fear by the gags and jokes we had been told.My favourite was knock and run alough i was nearly knocked down by the tour guide.A hilarious evening a night to remember. ps the knife part i cannot forget! amanda carrick yor
What fantastic entertainment. The whole family enjoyed the experience. Our friend was analysing how you survived the knife through the wrist for the rest of the evening. The way you were able to get people out of their comfort zone, work together and enjoy themselves was masterful. With those skills you are welcome to join our business whenever you are ready to hang up your hat and cloak. Clive, Sarah, Jenny, Lucy & friend John. www.greenfield-lifestyle.coms
As promised in April we returned last weekend to York with our Neice Hannah who is 9.This time Dan was our Guide. He was as brilliant as Andy, we all enjoyed it, funny, scary, entertaining, well worth the money. We hope to return again in September with some relatives and enjoy the experience all over again. Tony and Dawn Pattinson, Leek, Staffs.
Hi Andy, we had a fantastic time on the ghosthunt although we were so wet and freezing. We got a cold but it was worth it! Thank you again for driving us to our car. We hope to see York and its ghosts again (maybe in the sunshine?!),yours Joenna and Janina from Hamburg/Germany
It was funny and great experience, even though i was dragged out in front! thanks for great nite barb an mike williams
Hi Andy, Thanks for a great nite. It was a fun and exciting time and I would recommend it for anyone thats interested in hearing a few ghost stories and feeling a range of different emotions and is prepared for a scare.
Having been to York on Thursday 23rd Sept and doing the ghosthunt which started at the Shambles. Myself and my husband had a great time, the atmoshpere was excellent and soley created by the beauty of York city and our guide. Laughs and old stories were brought to life and encouraged you to want to see more. It started to rain but that didn't ruin a thing, if anything it added to the experience and with an old pub like the White Swan to dry off in the ghosthunt couldn't of been better. Diane and Craig McBain, Peterculter, Aberdeen, Scotland
went on the ghost hunt last night ( tuesday 28th sept ) what a brilliant night we all had, we drove down from newcastle especially for the walk, got to york at 6.00 & left as the tour finished & it was well worth it. will highly recommend it to every one, we could have walked around for hours, to find all the haunted places. loved the resturant bit, a great laugh. keep up the great tour, we will be back to do it all again. all the best. kev, lisa, gerry & vikki
Attended the ghost hunt on 2nd october and was extremely impressed. Our guide was hilarious and a real professional and the stories told were fascinating. Would seriously recommend it to anyone, well worth it!
We went on the ghost walk on 10/9/04, our guide was Andy and he was excellent. Really scary but also very funny. A trip to York wouldn't be complete without doing this walk. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we'd just like to say thanks again to Andy. From Tim and Sarah, Essex.
excellent and very funny, thoroughly enjoyable experience. will do again. elissa & chris
I wish I could be there or better yet have my boyfriend's ghost visit me. Patricia Koprowski Arvanitis Queens, New York America
It was fantastic! My group from the Netherlands had much of funn! You did manage to scare us so bravo! It was very cold that evening and our feets were freezing! Your sense of humor was very good!! Our teachers were even more scared then the rest of the group. I hope you will remember us! We were a group of 33 female students with 2 female teachers and 1 male teachers! Remember??? Hahaha! Thank you very much!!!
hi laura and lee here from notts really enjoyed your ghost hunt told every one how good it is we will be comeing back in a few weeks with our kids and our mates thanks again laura and lee
We took part in the Ghost HUnt on 7th Nov 04. A brilliant experience! I laughed, cried, and was scared. Andrew, our guide was excellant, with a voice so chilling i'll never forget it! Thank you for such an unforgetable night....i'll remember it as it was my birthday but i think everyone else will remember it because of my scream!!! Vicky (aka the Nurse)
Just visited York for the weekend, we went on the goast walk and I would highly recomend it to anyone. It was really funny, Dan the guide was superb! P.S. Mind the bar! lol
we went on this tour last week. It was fab and we will be taking friends again in February it was so good
I had to go to a head doctor for 9 months after the ghost walk Jimmy Wilson
Went on the Ghost Walk with Andy on 15th Dec 2005 and it was brilliant I haven't laughed so much since my Granny died John, Lincolnshire
We visited England for the first time last June and had the good fortune to attend the ghost walk with Andy Dextrous. We've seen a lot of live theatre, street and otherwise, and this is hands-down the best one-man show we've ever seen. Don't miss this wonderful, horrifying experience in the beautiful city of York! --the Oaks from Tennessee, USA
i personally thought this was the funniest ghost walk i have ever been on, very informative and very funny. Dan Dent and Andy Dextrous should be on television for comedy would definetly go again, if they didnt pick me to be the laugh of the crowd for the third time..
i personally loved every minute of it and i can also speak for my girlfriend, we went down just for the weekend and was very lucky to have stumbled on this ghost walk we were ment to go to another one but am very pleased we didnt. this made my visit to york so much more worth while. mr dent and mr dextrous are very funny men they should be comedians really brilliant.... Barry Coyne Co. Durham...........respect.
What a way to spend part of your evening, my wife and I were first time visitors to York so we decided to go on the ghost hunt and we were not disappointed. Our host was interesting and informative,funny and even scary. I would recommend this to anyone visiting York and we will certainly be doing it again when we next return. Steve & Judith, Wigan, Lanc
Excellent experience, it was the highlight of my visit to the fantastic city of York. Eugenia Gonzalez Gomez, Mexico City
Fantastic, hilarious, great company............ what more can be said!!! Ever thought of setting up a ghost hunt in Mexico ............... Dawn Stubbs, Somersets
Simply brilliant,me and my fiancee had a wonderful captavating yet scary ghosthunt. Our ghost hunting guide the grey bearded one was dam scary alone with such griping factual ghost storys and you found yourself deep in trance listening to his storys of old at each location. I recommend any vistors to york to do this ghost hunt i know it will stay with us along time. Thankyou ghost hunters. Russ and Janine, Wigan Lancs.
You've delivered again, this is the 3rd time me and missus have been on the Ghost Hunt, firstly on our own, then with a different pair of friends the other two times. We all loved it and i'd even go a fourth time. Our friends have all raved about you. If it ain't broke don't fix it. But an additional walk would be great, i think you'll be supprised to how many people do the walk more than once.
My ten year old son, James and myself have just come back from a few days in York. For us the two highlights of our trip were your wonderfully spooky, funny and informative ghost walk and the York Dungeon. Your Ghost walk was simply excellent and with many other things in York proving quite expensive, superb value for money. The gruesome ghost stories were told with a fantastic theatrical turn and then just as the shivers were trembling down your spine, our guide had us laughing out loud. I would recommend it to anyone. I would consider a return trip to York just to experience the Ghost Hunt all over again! Best wishes to everyone involved, Lindsey Shelton
My family and I had a brilliant time on this Ghost Hunt, hilarious from start to finish and a great way to learn about the famous ghost stories of York. I would recommend this to absolutely everyody. Holly, Bolton
The Ghost Hunt was hilarious, interesting and very memorable. Our guide, Andy Dextrous delivered the tour in a truly funny and captivating way, the funniest tour guide I've ever known. This tour is a must for all visitors to York!
fantastic what a night we did meet in pub after but could not stay as we have children many thanks
Enjoyed the Ghost Hunt the first time and had to return for a second. It just gets better, even when raining
Really entertaining, very funny and with a spooky thrill! Would recommend to anyone
I would just like to say how much we enjoyed ourselves on the ghost hunt on Saturday 25th June, it was fantastic. It was my son's 10th birthday so we bought him and a few of his friends along it was a 'hit' the best birthday party ever. We laughed, we listened, we were thrilled. Thank you. I have already reccomended it to all my friends.
hi last june i came to York as a school trip and i went on the ghost walk and it was really really good and i would advise anyone going to York to go on this walk as it was brilliant. Pupil from St John the Baptist PS in Uddingston-Glasgow!!!
We went round the ghost walk during a short break to york last weekend. Our host was very entertaining, held his audience captive throughout, a very enjoyable evening! Would love to come back in the winter & go round the tour on a dark night! Highly reccommended, many thanks!
What an absolutely fantastic tour this is! Our host was excellent, very professional, entertaining and his ghostly tales were most informative and funny in all the right places. The 'Ghost Hunt' was definitely the best experience and highlight of our short break in York. Anyone visting York in the near future must not miss this. Thanks for a brilliant time!
We have just returned from our short break in York and had a wonderful night on the Ghost Hunt! My husband and I laughed so much! Would seriously recommend this as the best in York! Try and join Andy for a drink afterwards as he is seriously funny of the walk as well as on!! Thanks for a great night!
Took the tour on friday 30th july. Andy your humour is spot on .You remind us so much of Rik Mayall. You had the crowd in stitches.When we come back to york we will do the tour again. You should be on tv. Thanks again.
Very very proffesional entertainment...
Fantastic tour. Better than any other attraction in York and half the price!

I am still laughing now, a week later! Andy, how do you keep such a straight face?
This Ghost Hunt is informative and entertaining in equal parts. Our guide was very professional and the tour was enjoyable with lots of fun and definitely a very good bargain. We saw some intresting back streets with lots of atmosphere. I liked the part with the knife, done most skillfully by Mr Dextrous. I also liked the Roman part at the Treasurer´s House. Dimitri Papastavrou Stockholm, Sweden
We were up from Bristol for our wedding anniversary. York is a wonderful place, we didn't have a second when there wasn't something interesting to do or see without leaving York's glorious walls. Thank you for a great evening-- fascinating and frightening, amusing and witty, but very telling of Dicken's world of the workhouse, poverty and disease. Not the world of chocolate-box window displays and cosy tea-shops which we sp enjoyed today in your fair city. ...We'll be back!
i had a great time when i went on the ghost walk, the best bit was at ceasers when we all pulled faces at the people inside. Brilliant turn out of people and enjoyed by all
I WENT WITH MY WIFE AND 7 YEAR OLD GRANDSON WE ALL THOUGHT IT WAS FANTASTIC, THE BEST £10 WE SPENT ALL WEEK. DAVE, DAPHNE AND CAMERON. GLOUCESTER

Just to wanted to say, had the most fun evening I can ever remember!!! Still haven't stopped giggling!! I would recommend this walk to anyone - definately the best in York, in my opinion

I thought it was very very scary when he asked me how old I was. The one that I found very scary was the bit where he cut himself!! But I would go again
Was receintly on your ghost hunt along with my wife on 25th November. Fantastic night - would highly recommend this walk to anyone who visits York. Well worth every penny - £1.00 off with voucher - No Need - as stated worth every penny. Will be back again soon this time with my kids.

The high spot of my New Year weekend in Yorkshire! Mike Ward, Birmingham
Great site. Watched Derek Acorah's Ghost Towns tonight and thought it was brilliant. I am the Webmaster of the True Ghost Stories site at www.trueghoststories.co.uk.

My dearest beloved and I thoroughly enjoyed the ghost hunt. We both had a severe case of "Boab's Dreep"* due to sub-zero temperatures but we had fun anyway. We would highly recommend the experience to anyone of any age - it's very funny and superbly presented. F & K, Scottish Borders. *"Boab's Dreep"; Scottish. Translates as "Bob's Drip"; the drip that appears on the end of the nose (esp.on old men) when it is particularly cold.

Just returned from an overnight stay at York with school. We didn't have alot of time to do much but managed to squeeze the ghost hunt in. I'm so glad! Andy Dextrous made the night, I really enjoyed it, I've not laughed so much in just over an hour before! A truly excellent show! Adele Rutherford, Co. Durham. UK
We are from South Africa and the Ghost Hunt that we were part of on 3 July 2006 was absolutely FAB! It was absolute entertainment from the word go and it is great value for money. Thanks to our guide who was awesome playing his part. We really enjoyed the restaurant bit!! Keep up the great entertainment!
Excellent! Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Very interesting stories but humorous at the same time. I cried with laughter at Cesar's restaurant. York is a beautiful city and the ghost hunt finished off a perfect day.
