    This was a fun way to spend an hour and a bit one evening. Often, as a tourist, there is less to do in the evenings aside from the normal dining out / drinking activity, and this made a refreshing change. I think you can also do this by yourself without feeling too odd. The guide had great energy and kept us engaged throughout the whole experience and we learned a lot too, even if we couldn't always clearly see all the sights (to be expected when driving in the ghostly dark of a November evening).

    The experience was excellent, the guide was fantastic and entertaining throughout the journey around York. This is a great option for both adults and children, I would definitely recommend it when visiting the city. If I had any issues it was that despite there being information to those booking that masks were required on board, virtually no one wore one.

    I’m going to presume that some may say this is a little ‘cheesy’ and I would possibly agree. However I would love to remember the guides name ( I’m going with Carmella the 6th of somewhere vampire-ey) was fabulous. Her energy was contagious and she was a fantastic host and guide. My only real criticism would be that it may be of benefit to turn the window lights off. As charming as they looked on the tables they did not bring anything to the tour itself. When the bus was in motion it was impossible to see the sights that were being expertly spoken about due those lights
