My visiting friend and I had high hopes for this and signed up for the 19h30 tour on Friday (28/02/14). Our conductor (Cyrus?) was witty and dry in delivering his stories about the city's many ghosts - we enjoyed listening to him. The tour put the onboard cameras to good use to give the impression of rats crawling under passengers' feet and to show the spirit of 'Dirty Mags' coming up the stairs. The décor (velvet curtains and beaded lamps) added to the atmosphere nicely and I liked how the lights and sound malfunctioned to forewarn of the arrival of a supernatural presence. The one thing that detracted from the whole experience for us was the inclusion of the hysterical and pointless Miss Hinge (the resident Necrobus 'Health & Safety Inspector'), whose random shrieking and general histrionics were frankly off-putting.
Ghost Bus Tours
Time Out says
Posted: Thu Oct 4 2012
Roll up for a tour on a Routemaster painted black and redecorated in a gothic vein, to hear half-factual, half-fictional tales about the sinister side of London, delivered by an on-board troupe of actors, stand-up comics and cabaret performers. Booking is recommended and the Ghost Bust Tours are suitable for all ages but not recommended for under-fives.
