Best tour I've ever been on in my whole and entire life

Bill is a hoot - every joke is a zinger. The magic is cracking - the ghost stories are great. Go. take everyone you know. Get Bill to cut your arm off.

Fun, frightening and fantastic!

A wonderful theatrical ghost walk which tells some fascinating stories from Oxfords grim past! Brilliantly entertaining especially if you have children. Would happily do it again all over!

Ghost Tour Spectacular

Brilliant ghost tour. We were concerned that our 7 & 9 year old would complain about all the walking but they were captivated. Not a single moan and both exclaimed it was the highlight of the day. Great fun for adults and children alike. Highly recommend and would definitely do it again. Thanks Bill.

Best Ever!

So much fun, I don't know where to start. Bill Spectre combines masterful storytelling with a touch of magic, humour and award worthy acting to entertain, educate and occasionally spook his followers. Lots of stories, audience participation and smiles all around.
