    The tour guide (Frank Stein) was comical and knowledge, considering it was only his 3rd time doing it and the driver (Bobby) was also friendly. It was enjoyable hearing and seeing the supposed haunted places of York and the use of the screens worked well to see Frank as he spoke. The little lamps were a nice feature, though I did expect a little more in the way of decoration. The little 'interference' spooky visions were a bit on the cheesy side too.

    We had done the red bus tour earlier that day on our york pass and a lot of the tour and what was said was very similar to that. However the bus itself was cute and the guide was adequately entertaining and nice to get off the bus and enjoy the atmosphere of the shambles. Wouldn’t spend money on both this and the hop on hop off. One or the other is sufficient if on a budget /time limit.

    The coach trip was good, Rob (I think) was funny and full of interesting facts! We booked the 6pm tour so there was a few kids on it so he had to keep it tame but I can imagine that full of adults it would be a blast thoroughly enjoyed it
