The volume on the guides microphone could have been a bit higher. We sat upstairs at the back and occasionally I couldn’t hear what was being said. Otherwise, a funny knowledgable guide and an interesting tour. It only took an hour so the price could be a bit lower.

23rd September 2021, I had booked a tour for 9pm for a ghost bus tour round york. We were advised to be 20mins early at the departure point as it could arrive sooner. Myself and my boyfriend arrived at 8:20pm to give us plenty of time. As it got closer to 9pm more people had arrived but no bus. We waited until 9:30pm before leaving as we could not get through to anyone on the phone.

Poor communication on bus, not clear what we were seeing. Bus was very dirty . No live guide as indicated in the literature.

Tour is fine once you're on the bus, but only if you stay for the full loop. If you hop off, beware the hop on may only be after waiting for up to an hour. Quite scammy given they market it as one bus running every 20 mins. The driver confirmed to us (after we'd been waiting for c50 mins) they only had one bus on the road...during which time we had seen 4 of the red hop-on-hop-off buses. I wouldnt recommend
