Good overall tour.

Could have been scarier but it was in broad daylight. Tour guide was entertaining. Would definitely recommend.
We were expecting one of those tours where the bus stops every so often and we'd hear a monotone talk on the place of interest.
What we actually got was a great tour of those places with a knowledgeable but very, very, entertaining tour guide Nigel I think his name is and even Bob the driver joins in the fun.
Highly recommended, but bring you're sense of humour and expect to join in
Brilliant evenings entertainment, guide was so funny and involved everyone, my husband had a staring role at one time. Pick up was on time and the vintage bus was great fun. Over too soon as we were having so much fun.
Overall I really enjoyed the tour - the compere had the right balance between being informative and amusing!
I liked the fact that we got off the bus once about halfway through the tour and enjoyed the interaction between the compere and my fellow travellers!
The only thing that could be improved was the way the compere was dressed which wasn't authentic. It would have been better if he was dressed in a spooky outfit!
