Mckenzie was a superb host and story teller, quite a haunting experience . She was honest and even the most sceptical (my partner) enjoyed the tour….

My second trip to York so I had to book on for Halloween with the lovely Mackenzie. This was my second real life tour with her . Love listening to the ghostly goings on and the history of York . Mackenzie has really done her research for sure . To anyone planning a trip to York I highly recommend a tour with shadows of York each time I learn more amazing .

In a city full of ghost walks, Mackenzie’s well researched stories really set her apart from her competitors. We had a private tour and found her approachable and happy to focus on our interests. If you’re looking for a ghost tour in York, look no further.
