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.

Would agree that the tour is probably not the best for avid ghost/ history fans, as the tour was about half factual tour and half play, but this made it all the more enjoyable in my opinion. The guides were terrific and did some pretty good improv, a great laugh for adults and older children alike!

This is just fun. The format is pretty straightforward. Your old tour bus drives round Westminster and the City. Guide tells you a bit about local ghostly tales. This is interspersed with a ghostly tale of its own. Different and enjoyable, with guide/actors that do a great job, the hour and a half sped by. I've lived in London for... More

I think my imagination was expecting the worst but this was really good fun with great actors on board the bus. I loved the in-depth knowledge and little snippets of facts thrown at the audience during the tour. It's not scary but it is Fun and enjoyable. Only thing is it was running late so we did freeze a little... More

I didn't really know what to expect as my friend had booked this for us simply as he had seen the bus around London. However the tour was very amusing and the actors were great. Some interesting facts too. Not a tour for the 'serious ghost-hunter', but I would definitely recommend it to friends looking for a fun evening activity... More

Took my family on the Ghost Bus Tour and found it to be both informative and fun. It has a very English feel to it throughout. The humour is often obvious but sometimes subtle. It's like fringe theatre on a bus with a corny Ghostly theme. Our female guide was both enthusiastic and funny which considering the repetition of her... More

Group of us went on this tour with 2 for 1 offers that we picked up in the train station. Knowing we had a good deal we probably enjoyed this more than we would have if we paid full price. The guide is funny, VERY funny!! We thoroughly enjoyed listening to him and his dramatic stories. No idea why we... More

The Ghost Bus Tour is definitely one for the overseas tourists or anyone who isn't familiar with London or English history. The conductor is well informed in respect of London's history and related a lot of interesting information - nothing we didn't already know though having previously lived in London and being well up on its history. The bus is... More

We weren't sure if it would be value for money but we got 2 for 1 vouchers at thr underground station which they happily accepted. The bus is great fun with a few spooks along the way. A staff member on board is your tour guide as you travel around the city of london and Westminster. He is a great... More

My bestie surprised me with this for my birthday and it was fantastic. THE best tour i have ever been on. LOVED the comedy angle to it whilst it still having jumps and bumps in the night lol. Can't reccomend this enough to anyone who can get to it :)
