  • Brilliant evenings entertainment, guide was so funny and involved everyone, my husband had a staring role at one time. Pick up was on time and the vintage bus was great fun. Over too soon as we were having so much fun.

  • Funniest guide ever! I had many good laughs!

  • Overall I really enjoyed the tour - the compere had the right balance between being informative and amusing!
    I liked the fact that we got off the bus once about halfway through the tour and enjoyed the interaction between the compere and my fellow travellers!
    The only thing that could be improved was the way the compere was dressed which wasn't authentic. It would have been better if he was dressed in a spooky outfit!

  • A fun trip which would only have been better if we were there at a different time of the year. Taking a ghost tour in summer means it is still daylight and not as spooky.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Really cool way to experience York at night and learn about it's history!

  • The tour made no sense, it was rush garbled and hurried all the passengers were looking at each other for inspiration, there was no heating on the bus and the narrator did not stop for breath once. If we could have rung the bell to get off we would have......

  • it was all right... but not scary enough... and i couldn't see nothing trough the window, but overall its ok

  • Lovely place very clean and comfortable, great food and the staff were brilliant nothing too much trouble
    Would definitely stay again

  • Great introduction to York's spooky history. My cousin and I enjoyed the commentary, the jokes and the special effects. We were delighted to learn that our cozy accommodation was actually one of the haunted highlights.
