Very professional and thoroughly enjoyable. Had a great night in the city of York and learned that my local supermarket is built on top of a burial ground. Ace!

absolutely amazing! Very interesting and spooky but also some comedy. The tour guide and the bus driver were very well in character and definitely made the tour very much the amazing tour it is! Is definitely a must do if you’re visiting York.

Quite good fun. Felt a bit chaotic at times. Would have liked a few more “stories “ that didn’t overlap with the Red Bus Tour.

Cancelled, rearranged, disappointing

Was booked for Friday which was cancelled with 3 hrs notice due to sickness. These things happen and can’t be helped. However, rescheduled for Saturday and sorry to say the tour was not good. Maybe someone stepping in but not what was promised or should be expected for the price. As a result we wasted quite a bit of our weekend in York either trying to rearrange or on a tour that wasn’t up to scratch. Ive emailed 3 times to share this directly and see what can be done, with no reply. Shame as it’s a great idea and we were looking forward to it.

Unprofessional

The guide on the bus actually got off the bus and walked away not to return leaving the driver to do the driving and the commentary therefore very little interaction like the brilliant tour we did in London. VERY disappointing !!!!’

One or two technical issues but apart from that was a very enjoyable evening. Will more than likely look at doing one of the other tours in the future.
