The Ghost Bus Tours’ classic Routemaster has been redesigned to give passengers London’s first ‘Fright Bus’ service. On-board actors and technical trickery combine to create the scariest tour in town. A creepy conductor provides the commentary for this sinister sightseeing show, revealing haunted places, unmarked burial grounds and the skeletons in the capital’s cupboard. « less

I live in London and know it reasonably well so I'm always keeping an eye for something slightly different to do. I went on the tour with my boyfriend and it was a lot of fun. The tour included some well known monuments and buildings (St, Barts Hospital, the Monument) and provides some of the history behind them, but it... More

A great tour to do if you've seen the usual London sights, this will show you the grislier side of the city. Amazing conductor and actors keep the tour flowing along with a mix of macabre stories and hilarious comedy moments. Well worth the money, enjoyed every second.

Funny and interesting. Would definitely recommend (and definitely recommend the later one - much more fun in the dark streets!). The staff are very good at combining genuine historical facts with a spooky element. Incorporates a 'round central London tour' - to areas not always covered by the usual 'tour bus', based on allegedly haunted sites. All round good entertainment... More

Excellent! Face ached with smiling and laughing. Fab acting. Good fun Really impressed with the performances from the actors. A well organised and at times, very we'll improvised show. So Witty and funny. Very interesting too! Good laugh with family and friends. I defy anyone not to enjoy themselves with this experience. This trip would be suitable for anyone but... More

The Ghost Bust Tour was utterly brilliant. I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard! I highly recommend this tour for anyone, although it would probably be too scary for young children.

We loved the theatrical entertainment, the ghost stories of London and the characters who told them. They were funny and entertaining.

We're Londoners but we thought we'd be tourists this evening and join the Ghost Bus tour. Without spoiling anything, we giggled for the entire trip. Everything was done with terrific commitment and it was a very funny evening. I recommend this to any tourist who wishes to sample a bit of silly British humour.

We booked this last minute with seeing the bus on the previous night, which looked fab being the old style. Can't fault the staff or the bus but the tour really isn't worth the money paid. Nothing spooky about it, just like being on the normal city tour bus just a bit more theatrical. Tour lasted 1 hour

I was leery about this one because I strongly dislike being scared. But I enjoyed it very much! It was paced well and filled with the rich history of London. The conductor and inspector are incredible at what they do. They work hard to make the tour memorable and they succeed. I'm so happy to give them the proper praise... More
