Very interesting and enjoyable but the bus was hard to find.

We had some issues finding the bus in the bus station. You’d think it would be easy with Jack The Ripper plastered on the side but it was hard to see with all other buses around. There were no directions or signage in the bus station to tell you which dock to go to. By the time we found it the bus was driving out of the station. The bus driver was kind enough to let us on when we approached it at a pedestrian crossing as it was leaving. Our guide was clearly very interested and well educated on the topic of Jack the Ripper. He was very friendly, approachable and engaging throughout the evening. He made the whole tour very enjoyable. We were all very disappointed to find the Sherlock Holmes pub closed by the time we arrived but that seemed to have nothing to do with the tour. According to signage the pub itself was closed to the public and only available for private events. The tour should take this into account for the future.

Excellent Tour of All Historical Settings

What an excellent tour, which included all the Ripper murder sites and some Sherlock Holmes locations as well. Adrian the tour guide was amazingly knowledgeable about Jack the Ripper and his victims. He provided additional personal insights and parallels based on his knowledge of modern London, and the Yorkshire Ripper. It was easy to imagine the conditions and the hardships suffered by "the unfortunates" in East London at that time, thanks to the historical context provided by Adrian. Also I should mention the safe, skilled driving by our driver of the vintage double-decker bus! Thank you!

A fantastic way to see the sights of London and feel the buzz.

Felix, was a perfect guide, for our cycle ride around London. Being a Londoner myself, he told us many things I didn't know and took us down roads I didn't know existed. It far surpasses any bus ride and Felix was way more knowledgeable than any guide book. I also found the ride to be safe and not at all strenuous. One of the best trips I have done and I would definitely do it again in other cities.

Very nice tour. Well planned. Felt safe on the road. Great guide.

Our guide Jasper was terrific. He kept close tabs on everyone. Didn't talk too long at the stops. Just right. He gave us clear road instructions and then made sure we followed them. In a friendly way. Will recommend this tour as a great introduction to Westminster and City of London areas. Plus the bikes were almost new and in very good condition. Thank you.
