Brilliant entertaining bus ride which was funny and a bit spooky. Beautifully restored bus and charismatic staff made the experience memorable. It was a great way to see the city and included both driven and walking tour of the city. We will definitely be back! If you’re in York you need to book this!

I liked our tour guide Phil. I am Mexican so I did have a bit of trouble understanding his Yorkshire accent but I guess that’s on me. About an 80% I was able to understand and he was funny and put a lot of effort on his performance. Also the bus, the music, the setting. I really liked everything :).

Fill graves the narrator is amazing and made the whole trip funny yet spooky. The bus has a touch of old era which gives the whole spooky vibes to a different level altogether. A must do tour in york.

Our ghost tour was cancelled 3 hours before it took place as there was a 'problem with staffing'. I had already read a review saying this had happened. I hoped it was a one off, obviously not! Very dissappointing.

I booked this for 6 members of my family and 2.5 hours before it was due to start I received a phone call to say it had been cancelled! Don’t know the reason for this. I couldn’t rearrange as we are returning home in a couple of days so I hope the refund process goes smoothly. My children were very disappointed!!

Our conductor 'Phil Graves' was really funny and engaging. I've been coming to York for many years and have learned a lot of its history, however this tour taught me new facts. A very fun way to learn and also a reminder that history repeats itself. Really enjoyed ourselves. Also, kudos to 'Phil' for staying in costume in 27 degree heat! Bob the driver deserves a shout too for adding to the entertainment. Would definitely book again next time we're in York.
