My wife and I loved every second of this tour! Mackenzie is a fantastic guide and story teller who has a passion for history and the macabre. To our benefit the tour group was much smaller than many of the other groups which meant we had more one on one time and could always hear and see everything. Would definitely recommend Shadows of York! 💀

Mackenzie is very knowledgeable & clearly loves the macabre. She took us to various sites that had history but also where strange ghostly sightings have been reported. Tour is approx an hour & a half & was good fun. Would definitely recommend.
