London: Jack The Ripper Walking Tour
- Duration options: 1.5 - 2 hours
We had THE BEST guided tour from Alfred. I would say that the tour was definitely different from what we were expecting - but in the best way possible. And maybe describing it in more detail than that would be giving away too much - if you're considering a tour, do it. And if you're lucky enough to get Alfred, it'll be the best tour you've had. Alfred had a clear passion for York, and encyclopedic knowledge of the place - and he used these to make the tour so incredibly interesting (even for people like me who aren't history buffs). We learned so much, and Alfred's love of York was endearing. I think if we'd have sliced him in two, he'd have the workd 'York' written through him like a stick of seaside rock. But you wouldn't do that to him - because he's lovely! :)
Quiz questions that I did were interesting and suitably challenging. But only managed 6 in 75 mins available to me. Will look forward to completing the rest another day. Probably quicker with a team to help. Would like more than two weeks to complete the game as I'm not based in London. All in all, a novel experience and a good way to get to know unusual parts of the city.
Absolutely Fantastic tour! Alfred was our tour guide and was truly incredible, the best tour we have been on. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and at all times kept up engaged. He made the tour fun and interesting! Highly recommend.
Our guide was friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. He went out of his way to include our 2.5 year old daughter as well which made it extra special. Highly recommend this as a must do in Bath.
We had a wonderful time, the views were beautiful. I was hesitant booking a 2.5 hour tour as i though it might be boring, but i was so wrong the time went very quickly - i wish it was longer :)
