Owner description: All aboard the ‘orrible omnibus for a ride around the dark side of London. 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.

Only 3 days in London and wanted to see and do lots. This was chosen for it's theatrical content rather than it's historical fact but there was also quite a bit of this too! Bus was perfect and fitted out to a high standard. From start to finish the tour was professional, theatrical, cheesy, hammy, funny, factual and most of... More

My friend and I went on this tour last Friday evening, and both really enjoyed it! Whilst I didn't find it scary, I thought the entertainment was priceless - we were both laughing pretty much the whole way through! I would definitely recommend this, it's good value for money and a lot of fun!

It was raining, the windows were steamed up, so not the best start to a sight seeing tour. I still can't make up my mind if I enjoyed this or not! We laughed a lot, it was different, I learnt things about London I didn't know and yes they were gory facts. When we got off the bus for a... More

A lost of time and money. Not scary, not funny at all. There is so much more to do in London than this tour.

We did the ghost tour on the last night of our recent London holiday. I chose the tour as it was different and offered a theatrical aspect with travel on the Necrobus. We enjoyed it, there was only one stop on the tour, I would probably of preferred more. We also had passengers who decided to talk loudly through much... More

Highly disappointed. We've done ghost tours around the world and have always learned interesting facts about the area's macabre past (whether you want to believe the ghost story or not). This tour is all cheese and no substance. If you are looking for a night of gimmicks and silliness this is the tour. If you want to hear macabre stories... More

A fun tour on a converted Routemaster, which will teach you lots of gruesome facts about London, whilst providing plenty of laughs. The acting is intentionally hammy & the jokes corny but we giggled non-stop & screamed occasionally too! The tour is fairly pricey but the actors work hard to give you your money's worth. Good if you're looking for... More

This is not a serious factual tour and I think that it is important to approach it this way. It is a humorous ghost themed tour. The humor is slightly cheesy but is not offensive in any way. My wife, daughter and I all enjoyed the tour but we probably would not do it again.
