Absolute waste of money and time. Farcical. Would not recommend. Better off spending your hard earned money on a bulk load of loo rolls.

Very good all round experience. We wanted to try something different as we have done various walking tours around York over the years. This was different and extremely enjoyable.

We have a family day in York and topped it off with the 6pm Ghost Tour bus. It was superb and the Tour guide Murphy was superb giving us the ghost history of York, entertaining and a lovely bus trip to End our lovely Day. Would recommend this for anyone to add on your visit to York.👍😃

Boring York Ghost Tour
Bridget_C

Very poor tour. Really just a few ghost tales told by an excellent story teller. Could have been more interaction and tour could have had some characters appear during the bus journey. Unable to see anything from bus. If we had been allowed outside we could have seen the interesting places pointed out. Not worth the cost. Would not recommend it.

Good stories, missing the true feeling of seeing the scary city

The conductor was brilliant and added to the experience. The only downside is you couldn't really see the sites you were arriving at which was being talked about. So all we felt we was paying for was a story time while being driven to your next bus stop.

Probably not the best ghost tour..

We were really disappointed with the experience, and decided to leave half way through. We weren’t the only ones to leave half way through either. It has the potential to be really good but unfortunately wasn’t.

It was awful, not sure if the conductor was new but certainly stalled on his script. Don’t be fooled by the Covid talk online, most didn’t wear masks, no hand gel provided and all windows shut!
