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.

“Not a scare in sight!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had all looked forward to a ride of scary, spooky 'hand on the shoulder' moments for weeks. We told everyone about it - how fab it was going to be. Unfortunately, we now have to tell everyone how disappointing it was. Yes, lots of interesting facts and some different areas of London to see but as for ' ghosts ' and scares as promised by their website...No!! Keep your money in your pocket.

“Great for kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Took my kids (and me really) the bus is a good bit of old fashion non internet/3d/modern world fun.
Even as a londoner you still learn a few things on board actors etc. Wont spoil anymore. Not suitable for under 5s and really good for a load of screaming girls.

“Fantastic experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

A fun and interesting evening. The start was about the ghosts whilst the second part was more the theatre and acting from the 2 actors. Good fun as long as you go with it! Possibly a little pricey but am enjoyable evening. We took the later tour offered and I would recommend it.

“Wonderful Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We saw the bus parked outside our hotel and we decided to give it a shot. The tour wasn't as informational as we thought it was going to be, it was more like live theater. The actors were pretty good, funny and they went with the flow. The bus was incredibly cool, with the table lamps, velvet curtains and the table seating. Some of the other reviews are correct it isn't very scary but it was fun and a great way to spend an evening in London, and we did learn a few cool facts about beheadings, murders, and the somewhat violent history about London. We had a great time!

“Scaringly Funny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We took this ride with our 13 year old daughter and had a blast. Lots of fun. We saw places and heard stories we had not heard on our hop-on-hop-off tour, although some of the one liners were the same. A fun way to spend an evening and be entertained.
