My girlfriend and I did the trail, Bill was a character and a half and really told great grisly stories about the goings on in oxford. He was engaging, funny and it was very cleverly laid out, a great evening for entertainment!

Thank you Stephen! I'm mainly in it for the fun, delighted we're on the same wavelength. Have a fabulous Christmas and New year!

What a great time we had! Bill is a wonderful mix of actor, magician, comedian and tour-guide. His wonderful ghostly stories at the various stops on the tour are historically interesting and really funny. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly recommend this to everyone.

Myself and my thirteen year old daughter booked onto this tour. We loved it. Funny and scary - we learnt a bit of Oxford's history, some frightening tales and got lovely glimpses of Oxford's atmospheric buildings and lanes at nighttime. Would recommend.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write your cracking review! Normally children are the first to step forward, I must have been unusually scary that night! Thanks again, reviews are truly the best way to let people know of my existence.!

Bill’s a real comedian. A very knowledgeable comedian at that. Loved every bit of the tour and I’m quite sure everyone will.

Bill's tour is a must during your stay in Oxford. I bring a group of students every summer and the first thing that we book is our evening Ghost Tour. He is a masterful story-teller and makes great use of the town center.
