    Very unique, loved the bus and the conductor! Great alternative to day bus tour and enjoyed the gory details about the shambles! We went to one of the most haunted pubs in York after hearing about it on the tour and it was great, both the prices and entertainment! Thank you!

    The website for we’re the pick up was could have been a bit clear , the website said it would end at a different place but they took us to we’re we started . The overall bus tour was a great experience , well thought out and well acted , would definitely recommend to anyone visiting York

    More funny than scary.. can be a bit close to the knuckle with the innuendos... but still an enjoyable experience and funny guide well worth the money.. Ps do not pop into the Grand Hotel before u em bark £15.75 for a pint and vodka and coke that was more terrifying than the tour ..
