We didn’t finish the tour we left at the first stop. Although the guide was quite enthusiastic we felt her commentary was aimed more at children. When we alighted the bus only those at the front could hear what the guide was saying. Considering we were 4 senior citizens we were given the worst seats on the bus, very uncomfortable and in danger of slipping off the bench like seats. Not an enjoyable experience in fact a complete waist of money.

This trip is a lot of daft fun. The bus is lovely and the guide was great. It could actually have done with more padded out ghost stories, but we did have a great time. Cheers

We all had a brilliant time on the ghost tour. The ‘conductor’, Rick O’mortis😃 was brilliant from the moment the bus arrived. Lots of fun spooky facts and guest participation. If you’re visiting York this is definitely a fabulous way to spend an hour or so, highly recommend

A fun outing with the slightly unhinged conductor who kept us all amused. Good special effects too. We never did find out where Margaret’s body was.

We enjoyed that we got a bit of walking tour and bus tour. Never done a Ghost Bus Tour before. Quite liked the quirkiness of it, something different & different stories and time of day.
