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.

“The Ghost Bus Tour is THE Best Tour in London!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

The London Ghost Bus tour is without a doubt THE best ghost tour I have ever experienced. The cast HILARIOUSLY recounts London's paranormal history during a sightseeing tour that becomes more and more exquisite with the setting sun. The bus itself is very well designed and extremely comfortable, and a mid-journey stop includes a beautiful display that pays homage to "the outcast dead" at Cross Bones Graveyard. I won't give away the ending, but rest assured you won't just hang on to every word of these ghost stories - you'll become part of one!!!

“A bit of fun and great actors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

This tour just goes to show what a good subplot and clever ad libbing can do to enhance your enjoyment. It isn’t a traditional tour for sure – although still quite informative – and a nice way to make an evening in London. We joined the tour after an earlier dinner (you could try one of the pre-theatre special deals in any of the nearby restaurants or hotels). Being summer, it was still twilight, but that didn’t spoil the fun. The tour guide and the rest of the crew certainly worked hard to keep us all entertained and I loved the ‘to camera’ work. Try it for something a bit different!

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The tour was both informative and fun bringing life to an otherwise morbid side of London. Seeing the "other side" of some of the famous landmarks was brilliant. Had a few moments when I wished I packed a second pair of undies

“Ghost Walk in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Tom (the Australian) was just brilliant. The stories he related were informative and he spoke loud enough so everyone could hear. He was very aware of safety - making sure the group safely crossed the busy London Streets. He also added a touch of humour where appropriate. He is certainly, in my view, an asset to your organisation. Well done, Tom!
