Inspired by the London Ghost Bus and Jack The Ripper tours in 1988, Mark Rose-Christie combined these concepts to launch The Mystery Ghost Bus Tours to South African audiences at the National Arts Festival (Grahamstown ) in 2001. Since then the tours have opened in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Pretoria & Port Elizabeth, with Durban and the Midlands Meander (Kwa-Zulu Natal) to open soon. Although we use tour coaches, this is actually a ‘theatre-on-wheels’ production, catering for both the Public and Groups (corporate events, team building, end-of-year functions, birthday parties & tour groups).
What the critics are saying about the Mystery Ghost Bus Tours:
“I have to admit that even this hardened sceptic got a shiver down her spine” - Tracy Melass, TNT Travel Magazine, London
“For the sceptic who says there's no such thing as ghosts, Rose-Christie gives them something to think about” – Star
“Fiendishly Different ... You really get your money's worth” - The Citizen
“Top Seller at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown” - Die Burger
“Very Popular !” - SA City Life Magazine
“High Spirits & Lot's of Fun” - Argus
The Media and our Clients alike, have said that at “About half the price of the usual sight-seeing tours, and twice as long, The Mystery Ghost Bus Tour offers more than any other ghost tour worldwide”.
