Not a great tour sadly
JAG

A nice idea, the bus looks great, but having done the Ghost Bus in Edinburgh, this was a disappointment. The actor was difficult to understand at times because he spoke far too fast and his microphone was muffled. The 1 stop was a quick run around part of the shambles where we couldn't hear the actor at all because we were in narrow alley ways, so quite a way back. Also, as we took the 9pm bus, you couldn't see outside because the lamps were too bright, making most of the tour pointless. The bus driver himself was a sweetheart though and at our stop, happily chatted to us and gave some tips on places to visit.

This is a fun ghost trip rather than scary which was fine with me as it was SO funny and the host “Robin Graves” had me rolling around I was laughing so much. Thoroughly enjoyable. It includes a short walk around The Shambles.

Great idea but execution was a bit amateurish. Host played it for laughs which seemed fine with some passengers but I thought he seemed to be stalling, rambling and had terrible timing. Special effects a bit basic but host seemed awkward with them and at times it was embarrassing. Bus a great idea if better done.
