Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So I went solo as someone who actually gives tours, and I have to say that he was funny, charismatic, and basically a human encyclopedia. Even between historical locations, the stories he tells are fascinating and varied. More than worth the money. This is a bit of a flex, but I'm also a tour guide, and I can say he did a phenomenal job.

I accompanied my friend on the Ripper Mystery Walk. She had been looking forward to this experience for months. The weather was wet and windy, but we were cheerfully optimistic and thought this would add to the creepy atmosphere.

On meeting our tour guide Paul, he seemed approachable and engaging. However, as the tour got underway (and late I may add), it became apparent that this was going to be the Paul show. There was lots of information about Paul's personal life which seemed to dominate the discussion. It's fine to add in relevant bits here and there, but I started to zone out on more than one occasion. My friend walked off frequently and did some of her own sightseeing!

At the start of the tour we stopped in a wind tunnel. I thought we'd only be there for a short time as it was Baltic. However, we stayed put for what seemed like an eternity. My friend and I couldn't concentrate on what was being said, as we were too busy trying to keep warm. Another tour stopped briefly, Paul mentioned that they couldn't hack it and have moved on. I didn't realise we were on the SAS version of Jack the Mystery Tour, Who Dares Wins!

The most frustrating, irksome and irritating part of the tour was Paul starting to talk before we had chance to catch up with the rest of the group. His voice wasn't loud enough over the hustle and bustle for us to hear all of the information. The tour felt rushed towards the end.

On a more positive vibe, I found hearing about the grave robbers Burke & Hare and The Whitechapel cemetery fascinating. I also loved seeing the old cobbled alley next to The White Hart pub, albeit frequented by what seemed like two dodgy characters doing a drug deal!

To conclude, in my opinion Paul is obviously very knowledgeable about Jack the Ripper and London history. However, this was a mediocre tour and I wish I had done my research.

Last Thursday we met Paul at St Pauls for a 2 hour plus walk. We went to a few places within that area that I hadn't found previously, so that is always good to make new discoveries and ideas to revisited on a a future trip.
My only criticism is that he started talking as soon as he reached the next spot he didn't wait until the whole group reached that spot. He had said that he had a mic prior to starting the walk, but he never used it and there were times with traffic and noisy bars, where you could hear a word he said.
On the whole it was an evening entertainment, walking around my home city. What's not to like.

Thank you for your review and 4 star rating of my tour. Sorry that you were not able to hear me all the time, unfortunately my loud speaker had decided not to work that night so I was unable to use it. Regards Paul the tour guide.

Fantastic evening last night, Paul is super interesting and having lived in London for 20
years saw many hidden gem streets I didn’t know existed. Paul is very passionate about what he does and look the time to answer any questions, never becoming impatient which I experienced on some previous tours. He took us to Mitre Square and despite not being one bit superstitious I did see a ghost on the ground. I will add the photo to see if you can spot it too! Cannot wait to go on another tour with Paul, highly recommend! Thank you 🙏

My wife and I attended the Jack the Ripper Tour this week. This was part of a red letter day package which included a delicious fish and chip supper at Poppies. We met our guide, Paul at Aldgate station, and the tour started promptly at 7pm. We were in a small group, and so it made it very easy for us to hear Paul and see his photos. Paul has a wealth of experience, particularly helped by his previous career in the police force, and so this added an extra dimension and enabled him to add his interpretation to the gruesome events that took place. The story is fascinating and Paul’s approach was to make the tour very interactive by posing questions to us to get different viewpoints. I think the ultimate testament to Paul’s tour is that he managed to hold my attention for 2 hours - which is a very rare thing! I would certainly recommend this tour. It made for a very enjoyable evening. Thanks Paul.

Paul ran an excellent and informative tour, which snaked in and out the lanes and backstreets between Aldgate, Spitalfields and Whitechapel. Whilst the tour focused on the Ripper exploits we also took time to consider London's history the different architecture and our guide answered all of our questions - on any subject! It was a very cold evening and despite us being few in number Paul maintained the pace and excitement so that we didn't freeze and were kept intrigued the whole time. Thank you very much.

We did our ghost tour on a Saturday night and it was amazing!
Booking with Paul was such a breeze. He answered my queries via email promptly, no hassle, no complaints whatsoever.
He’s also punctual, very knowledgeable and engaging.
The private tour is highly recommended (especially during these times). We are grateful that it was also extended beyond 1.5 hours! Wow! (that came as a surprise!)
So if you’re looking for an activity to do on a weekend, I suggest you do the private tour as it’s worth every penny.
