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!

Average. Tour guide provided minimal historical facts/ ghost stories throughout the tour which I expected to be a given on a Ghost tour bus. Humor wasn’t great.

Very entertaining, get to see a lot of York and about its Ghosts and with the weather being bad. My only thing was the windows was all steamed up so you couldn’t have the full view of everything, but that’s was the weather so couldn’t be helped but didn’t take away the enjoyment of it

Good but underwhelming

The girl did her best and was great but I was expecting a bit more from the show on the road for £36 for 2 of us. If the show has had to be downgraded to 1 person because of Covid then have some more background music, sound effects and banging etc. The girl could dress up and walk around the bus instead of us just watching a screen. I’d wanted to go on the bus for a long time and TBH felt underwhelmed when we finally got to go. Sorry but that’s my honest opinion.

Must do if going to York

We did the Ghost Bus on the last night of our visit to York and it made the whole trip there worth it. The conductor made us laugh so much it hurt, he was so informative about all the places we went to and made each location come to life with his comedic take on the history of each place. We would highly recommend this tour especially if you take it at night as this make it more spooky and fun. Only down side if there could be one is that the commentary is a little on the loud side, but other than that would not have missed it for the world.

Very entertaining and informative, 10/10. The guide involved all of the bus so didn’t matter if you were upstairs down, he got everyone involved.
