We had a fun evening. Our guide was Dr Knox. He’s amazing at his job, Friendly and funny, made us laugh all through the tour. It was interesting and some historical facts and ghost stories. The only thing that lost a star was that it wasn’t scary at all more humour, which we didn’t expect as it said paranormal experience and adult only, it was only for adults because of the naughty language. We still had a good time.

Really enjoyed the walk, swaney was great, especially after only doing for a little while. I have done this tour before though and last time was a bit more scarier, it felt a little more family friendly this time and less extreme paranormal! It was big tour people wise so I know it’s difficult. All I would say is work on drawing people in more. However entertainment wise it was great :) so big thumbs up and we have great laugh as well

Tonight we had the pleasure of being toured around by ‘Dr Robert Knox’ … I wish I could give this tour and the man himself 10 stars. From start to finish was nothing but laughs with some brilliant historical information in there as well. Couldn’t recommend more, worth every penny !!
