Had a great time with some friends! Our guide ‘Isabella Ravencroft’ was entertaining, knowledgeable and hilarious. Plenty of surprises along the way. I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for something a little bit different. But.... beware!

Great bus tour with a very scary and funny guide, kept us all laughing and a little bit on edge. The bus is very comfortable and creepy! Highly worth a look in if you’re looking for a ghost tour without much walking

We just loved it. We attended a 6pm tour, and it was perfect timing for the sunset and the transition into night when the rather beautiful bus really comes alive. Really hit the spot too with the balance of comedy and horror. Both actors were...More

I had low expectations for this tour but honestly this was worse than I expected. Scary? No. Entertaining? No. Informative? Barely. Vintage bus painted black? Yes. The “actors” are not amusing. The “scary” stories are basically just murder tidbits you can just look up on...More

This was a dreadful waste of money and so embarrassing with terrible actors. One thought he was Kenny Everett and the other was pointless and stupid. It was advertised as comedy but there was nothing funny about it at all.More
