Thanks so much for the review Mark, I'd be a lost soul without reviews and word of mouth! I'd love to run more tours in Burford, I really like the stories there. Trouble is, I get tied up in Oxford, always delighted to be booked for a private group though! More

Bill kept a number of highly excited cubs enthralled from the beginning to the end with his tales of ghostly specters and chilling tales of Burford. Added to that were fantastic effects to keep everyone entertained and spooked. Bill knew his audience and I can highly recommend his tours for children and of course adults alike.

I have just got back from Buford, having spent a fun hour or so with my friends and our children, finding out a bit of Burford's spooky historical stories, along with a little magic. Thoroughly recommend this lighthearted ghost tour. Bill took his time to make sure each and every one of us felt a part of the tour, and... More

Went on Bill's Burford ghost tour last night with partner and 3 pre teen girls. have to say we all loved it. Bill is great at playing up to the crowd and the girls all pretty much shut up and stayed off their phones for the whole hour - that in itself is remarkable.

Thank you so much for your review! Although I generally only run ghost trails in Burford when I've been booked for private groups, I'm keen to run more public tours and your review is a great help. Burford has great stories and a treat to tell. Thanks for bringing your team along and being such fun! More

Our ghostly tour with Bill was very enjoyable, a real showman, haven't laughed so much in ages. Made this bunch of Librarians very happy!

An entertaining and different way to see Burford. 10 of us had a private tour. With Bill Sykes to lead us through and around the quaint streets of Burford, we laughed all the way round. Unfortunately no ghosts or spooks managed to rock up, despite Bill's attire, jokes and tricks.
