Very well done and loved the use of the onboard camera which sort of brought the whole bus together. The trip was both funny and factual. It was very different from anything else. Worth doing.

The tour guide shouted and was too over the top. I don’t think you need to yell to be dramatic. It was too much for me.

The presenter worked very hard and was likeable. he told the story well , was entertaining and gave us a fright now and again, which we enjoyed. However, we chose the bus tour because I have arthritis and have mobility issues. So I was disappointed when we had to get off the bus and walk across a busy road to hear part of the story.

Waited 40 minutes …. No bus , sent several messages asking if the bus was running late ( no replies ) … eventually just gave up ( very disappointed end to a great stay in York ) …. To message again the next morning and finally get a reply to say, tour had been cancelled due to illness …. Now I understand last minute things can happen , but to not communicate this until the next day is totally unexceptionable
