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

What an excellent attraction, the actors work very hard to make this a brilliant experience...... you ride along in the bus and ride along with the story being acted out around you, learning more about the city than you previously noticed..... definately recommend and would ride again..... one word of warning though, make sure you know the prices before you...

This is basically a tour of a few London sites on an old routemaster bus, decked out appropriately for the occasion! The conductor played a very good part in narrating the tour, but to be honest parts of it got a bit silly. Probably better if you have not been on one of the hop-on, hop-off bus tours of London...

Was laughing on the bus from start to finish. The conductor had us laughing at his jokes from start to end while still giving some insight to the history of the city. Would recommend it to anyone!

This was a really fun tour. The guides were entertaining and had great stories. Most of the tour is done via a tv screen which I suppose is the best way as it is a double-decker bus and they have to please everyone. There was a lot going on and time seemed to fly by. It did feel scripted at... More

This was great fun. The bus is the first to create the atmosphere. Takes you right back in time. The guide had the perfect voice to give you chills. When the 'ghost' arrived we all sat up straight. She got me a couple of times creeping up behind me. Lots of interesting facts and history. Gory, sad, funny and interesting.... More

We were really pleasantly surprised by this tour, the old London Necrobus we boarded was a fantastic setting and the 'conductor' onboard had us laughing from the off. For some reason his jokes reminded me of Richard O'Brian on the Crystal maze back in the 90's, and that had me laughing all the more. Rather unexpectedly we found that we... More

We were booked on this ghost bus tour by a friend as a birthday gift. Unsure of what to expect, we boarded with another 50 or so people. The bus looks the part inside and out (although it was very hot!). We set off around London with the "conductor" telling some horror stories. The stories are told from a comedy... More

Booked this on a whim last minute with no expectations other than a bus tour with some ghost stories. What we actually got was a thoroughly entertaining evening. The guide was hilarious and although it was a little cheesy at times we laughed the whole way round. I cannot recommend this tour enough, a really fun way to see the... More
