Our tour guide Serena was brilliant. Informative and fun. We had a great time. The real photos from the investigation were a great touch, albeit gorey! Only downside was the London city noise on a Friday night, however this was not the fault of anyone and it didn’t spoil the tour.

The gangster tour was fantastic. The tour guides were very knowledgable and funny at the same time and everyone one the bus seemed to be enjoying themselves. I would recommend it 100%

Our guide was brilliant and so informative not just about Jack the Ripper but about the part of London we walked through. We really enjoyed the tour, excellent value for money and very informative. Walking through the exact venues and seeing the past pictures of the place, really brought events to life. Our tour guide couldn't have been more, friendly, informative and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed and recommend this tour. Anne and Steve.

I was a little confused as to why some parts of the ‘gangster tour of soho’ focused on 70s pop stars rather than gangsters as well as spending the first 10 minutes talking about the London Palladium. Some of the facts that were mentioned and some of the photos were not accurate. That said it was a fun 2 hours and the tour guide was a nice lady. It just felt a little bit thrown together and inaccurate. Not exactly as it was described.

If you read the description on Trip Advisor first, which details all the stops on this tour you would have seen that there were stops about pop stars, clubs and the London Palladium. I could just walk my customers to Great Marlborough Street and start with the Great Marlborough St Court and not stop on the way but the London Palladium ison the way and a world famous theatre so it seemed a shame not to include a bit of its history. I am perplexed as to why you think some of the photo's were not accurate, do you mean photo's of the gangsters or clubs/places that were there at the time? If you were not there then, how can you be sure? Some photo's I show date back to the early 1900's none of us can be positive about these, I show many more to the 60-70's when I was in Soho these I am pretty sure are accurate as I can remember it well. I show some gangsters at various ages also. Sometimes it is difficult to get a photo for a particular year so i have tried to get as near as possible in this case. I try to show that Soho over the years has been the haunt of gangsters, pimps and con-men alongside actors, artists, the sex industry and the avant garde as I think that most people would like to know how all these people mingled in this area.

I did the Sweeney Todd walk. There was actually very little about Sweeney Todd. Lots of other subjects brought in - Jack The Ripper, The Knights Templar, Dr. Johnson etc. The locations were lovely and unusual and it was overall enjoyable. The guide was a little scatty though but full of knowledge, even if a little haphazard!

Thanks for the review! As I did explain at the start there is just not enough info to do a whole two hour tour just on Sweeney Todd alone so although I go to the sites of Mrs Lovett's pie shop and Sweeney's barber shop, I also include these beautiful locations connected to the other subjects you mention, as they are really worth visiting.

Very informative, I wish the tour had lasted longer! It's just a shame that Whitechapel is so over developed now that it has lost its authenticity.

Thank you for your lovely review I also wish as you do that the area was not so developed. I do try to show it as it was via the photos and descriptive dialogue.

Jenny was a great guide- and really knew her stuff! I appreciated her logic, and personal research into the topic that really informed the talk- particularly concluding on more up to date research on who Jack the Ripper might have been. Really engaging and interesting talk. Walk was manageable and you could tell it was interesting as we were out for 2.5 hours and it flew by! Would recommend to anyone with an interest in Jack the Ripper or even the history of East London.

Firstly, we were invited by friends as part of a free 4 person voucher, so in fairness there was no cost involved. However, would I have paid for this ? … No … two thirds through the walk a group of four walked off.
I’d advise not to do this on a Friday & Saturday evening as during the tour , around us flowed the hustle & bustle of weekend London Night Life.
The day that we chose was during the Demonstration regarding the
Palestine/Israel war, so lots & lots of people mulling around.
You have to be fairly fit and wrapped up warm if it’s Winter.
The guide, a lady in costume in keeping with the era, pulled a trolly type suitcase around which I thought was an amplifier so that when the lady spoke we could hear her.
No such hope and there were times when nothing could be heard due to the surrounding, “ White Noise “.
The guide kept going off into minor tangents of knowledge of the era, though there was a slither of tie to the subject, sometimes I struggled to see what the connection was. So much history that whilst relating to the 1800’s, was not directly linked to the Jack the Ripper story. Too much chatter and not enough focus on the event.

I am a bit mystified by your review as there are no FREE vouchers on TripAdvisor or my website? Did you mean that you as a couple were invited free? If so then the walk was not your choice and maybe not an interesting subject for you. Apart from that looking at my bookings I had no customers from TripAdvisor/Viator in the past two weekends when there have been demonstrations? This weekend on Sunday when there was no tour. Last weekend on Saturday when there was. The area around Brick Lane is always very busy on a weekend, a very popular place to go because of that I and my fellow guide (who both dress in costume and have trolleys to carry our tablets in to show clear pictures during the tour) wear microphones when the group numbers 20+ despite this I realise that sometimes it might be difficult to hear but if it was why did you not ask for the sound to be made louder? We do give a lot of background about the victims as most people want to hear about their lives and the social conditions at the time as well as the murders and a small amount about area itself. I can only encourage anyone who reads this review to scroll down and look at the many 5* reviews that we have received by customers who throughly enjoyed the Jack the Ripper Walk!
