Excellent host, incredible public speaker and very funny. Great knowledge and very accommodating. Alice knew I was 7.5 months pregnant and kept asking if I was okay or needed to sit down. Thank you so much for the experience! We will be sure to tell our friends and family about you :)

Mad Alice is a brilliant storyteller. Her presentation is fun and lively and she has a wealth of knowledge about the fascinating history of York. Kept our two slightly cynical teenage boys interested and engaged throughout.

Mad Alice was an amazing guide. She made the history entertaining-and was really funny. One thing that is very true about these tor reviews-Mad Alice has an uncanny gift for remembering names. She came prepared with the names of each member in every group-it was amazing. There was a lot of group participation, too. I can’t recommend enough-you could take this tour if you’re in York!

Mad Alice was amazing, she brought the stories to life by adding her personality and sense of humour to the tour. She arrived promptly and there was a good balance between the stories and the walking times. It was a great way to see parts of the city and learn some gruesome details.

Mad Annie rocks York! Don't miss her

Mad Annie was not only informative but highly entertaining! Additionally, despite having a group of about 20, she remembered every person's name and spent time getting to know every one of us! She effectively mixed humor with history. I HIGHLY recommend this tour but even MORE highly recommend it with Mad Annie as the guide!

Definitely would recommend - was a perfect balance between fun, exciting stories, and a bit of educational information. Lots of great facts about York and plenty of info you would not get in a text book or online. Thanks Mad Alice for being fantastic.

Friendly, factual and fun - The Bloody Tour of York

Mad Alice was on time, warm and welcoming and imparted her stories of York in a clear, concise and fun way. Most impressive was her memorisation of everyone's booking by surname; she asked for the booking surname and knew everyone in the party's forenames! I thought she had stumbled when she didn't know one group and asked to see their booking reference; Alice soon spotted their booking was for the following week! I would recommend The Bloody Tour of York, but next time I would go earlier so I had time to go back to some of the places highlighted, as it was we were leaving the next morning.

The tour was very pleasant. I'm extremely surprised with the personalised experience Mad Alice managed to five all of us. She remembered names, hotels, place of origin and so on. We were a group of approximately 40 but still she drew everyone in. Plus she has a great humour, making finny jokes even after a somber fact.
