There was a problem with the bus on the previous tour but we arrived early and the gentleman took our number to contact us to let us know if the tour was going ahead or not. He found us and confirmed it was and also advised on where to meet. We never stopped laughing from start to finish as did everyone else, and we hung on every word waiting for the next surprise brilliant don’t miss it only thing I will say is that you do briefly get off the bus so wrap up and a small torch may be handy .

Loved this experience. It's definitely something different to do whilst in York. I think the conductor has a tough job keeping us unruly passengers entertained for over an hour, but he managed to pull it off and I think most if not all of us loved the experience. The only thing I would say is that it would have been nice to have gotten off the bus a couple more times to get up close to the "haunted" places mentioned. Saying that, York central is small so it's easy enough to do yourself afterwards.

Really enjoyed the bus and loved the guide ...the problem was the p***ed up 60year old that quite clearly couldn't handle a couple of glasses of prosecco and kept screaming over the conducter so we actually missed half of what was being said .I would still recommend it to others though and hopefully they will be lucky enough to hear the whole tour
