    Fantastic tour, the guide was brilliant. Fully of humour and interesting facts. We live in York and we cannot believe its the 1st time we have done the bus tour. Definitely one to book if you are in York. The bus does pick you up and drop you off at the same spot, reading one site it looked like it was a different drop off point.

    This was a fantastic addition to our adventure, we went on the 9pm trip and it was a great time to go. The bus was fab, the hosts (lady driver, guy conductor) were excellent! It was humorous and informative, we even went back to one of the stops the nxt day! Really glad I booked. Wasn’t sure if it was gonna be to cheesy but it was just the right amount! Definitely recommend x

    I didn't read reviews first so I was surprised that we got off the bus and walked around for a while. It was a lot of fun and extremely cringe at points but that's the whole point. I would definitely recommend to anyone who thinks feeling uncomfortable is funny as I do. The guide was brilliant and he put his all in to it. Take cash to tip at the end as I didn't and I felt bad because he really did deserve it.
