Learn the folklore about witches that only York locals know. the guide was a very interesting and knowledgeable person and made the hour-long tour easy for us. I would choose this small group again."
"We participated as a family of 4. Our 12year old daughter, who is an avid Harry Potter fan, absolutely loved our witch guide. Our guide was so enthusiastic and eccentric and so knowledgeable about the local area. She really inspired my daughter and made our day."
