Becki, our guide was brilliant and she clearly feels passionate about what she’s talking about. It was a very rainy evening on our walk around Gloucester but that didn’t dampen Becki’s enthusiasm and we were lucky enough for it to be just us as a family of four so had the benefit of our very own personal guide. Our son is studying A-level architecture which we mentioned to Becki and she made sure she took us to all the places of architectural interest including beautiful gothic archways and detail of the cathedral, many thanks Becki, he’s clearly going to smash it when it comes to handing in his work 😀.

Absolutely loved this tour, guide was brilliantly entertaining and knew all the ghosts stories. I would 100% recommend, just made the short break in Gloucester perfect. Am I still a skeptic…. I might ask the monk! 👻🌛⭐️

The historical parts of the tour accompanied by photographs were very interesting but I was not drawn in by the Guide's storytelling. It lacked substance and credibility. The decision to run a tour into the late evening (11.10 finish) was questionable as the city centre at that time of night is not a pleasant place to be and I felt nervous. The decision to take the tour to a secluded corner of the Cathedral grounds where a homeless person was just bedding down was insensitive and that part should have been missed out. The visit to the shop was very interesting and the shop owner was very engaging. The Guides energy and enthusiasm for the subject could not be faulted. It was an interesting experience overall but don't expect to be converted if you are a non believer!

I've done a lot of ghost tours in the major cities of Great Britain and this is hands down the best one I've done. I hold my hands up that I'm a skeptic but I felt thoroughly spooked by the tour! I loved the way the guide blended very interesting historical background of the city with the ghostly tales- I learnt a lot. It was also embellished with photos of the insides of buildings she was describing or images of how they looked in the past which really brought the stories to life. The guide was engaging, fun and respectful and has experience of hands on paranormal investigations which gave her more authority to describe the ghostly goings on, than other guides I've had in other cities. We were met part way through by a friend or colleague of her (not sure which ... or maybe he was a ghost!) Who took up some of the tale telling. They made an amusing double act! It was a long tour at 2.5 hours but it felt about right in terms of the stories we heard and the sites we visited. Would recommend!

Meeting location was easy to find. We were a very small group of 3 plus the guide so our experience was extremely conversational and casual. Our walk around Gloucester was slow and the guide pointed out details of buildings with significant histories and shared her own paranormal experiences gained through personal investigation. Tour was augmented with pictures and diagrams on an iPad which worked fine for a small group. She also shared videos and recordings of paranormal nature at relevant sites. Our tour concluded with a trip down a dark and narrow alleyway dating to Roman times and then into a pub cellar which was super creepy and the highlight of the tour for me. Only way it could be even better is entry to enter more sites, but I am sure access to some of these sites (e.g. 800 year old churches) is understandably restricted.
