    The absolute BEST thing about this tour was the delightful vintage bus. We sat downstairs & I chose the front seat. With the clatter of the old bus and the “vintage” ride, bumpy & fast, I could imagine being on the Night Bus from Harry Potter. It was delightful. Our guide was a pleasant man & very knowledgeable about Jack the Ripper. He is so in to that story & event that at one point we stood (in the cold) for at least 30 minutes. We were in the spot where one of the victims was found. Interesting but I was expecting this to be balanced between the two subjects. The guide did give us a few facts about the author Sir Doyle as our bus arrived at our final stop. (This was 30 minutes later than advertised.) We arrived at a Sherlock Holmes themed pub. It was late & we were cold so we didn’t go in but hustled back to our hotel.

    We did the tour and to be honest the guide was knowledgeable but as previous reviews have said you need to use your imagination quite a bit (not a problem and as expected). With regards to the old bus, we loved it, very nostalgic. The downside sorry, It is a walking tour and it does involve a fair bit of walking so be aware if you struggle with mobility at all. The guide does not hang around and on our tour there was a couple of Americans that were obviously having trouble keeping up. The guide however didn't seem to notice or make allowance for them.

    Our guide, Alan, was very knowledgeable, humorous, and entertaining. He provided a lot of information about Jack the Ripper and his victims, and he did so while making everyone laugh. Unfortunately our open top double decker bus broke down before the trip even started, but Alan was able to secure us a coach bus to use for the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are glad we did this excursion.

    Going on the double decker bus and seeing London at night was a great start to this tour. Everyone knows something about the Jack the Ripper story but the tour guide was able to weave a story from the perspective of the victims with details of who they were and what they were doing at the time which made it become "real". Also to retrace the steps of the killer from one murder to the other with information about what the areas would have been like then was fascinating. The Sherlock Holmes part was not as interesting but overall we enjoyed it very much.

    The bus was great fun and an extra thrill to our trip as it’s a very old double decker, a classic. Our guide was very knowledgeable & full of information re: the Ripper, the locations and the women victims. I was surprised to see how narrow the actual streets were. There were places you could understand why no one saw anything. I was disappointed that there was little regarding Sherlock Holmes. Our guide did have some interesting facts he relayed on the bus. The ending place, a pub named the Sherlock Holmes, was lively and fun with good prices. I would go again. Though this is NOT for children as the guide shared more graphic descriptions of the violence.

    We had an amazing time on this tour. My brother and I are both big true crime fans, and this was such a unique opportunity to see history in person. Magnus was an amazing guide and incredibly knowledgeable. He was engaging and fun to talk to. Our driver, Lloyd, had to contend with extreme traffic conditions and road closures in preparation for the Queen's funeral. He skillfully navigated us through the streets of London, expertly handling the double decker bus. All in all, an amazing trip!

    Guide was knowledgeable but we booked the combo tour and it was not worth the price. Said one thing about sherlockhomes . The guide was not warm and friendly. The entire experience was ruined for us by the attitude and shear out and our lie about what we would see and do, if you want to know more about Sherlock google the bar and go to Baker Street tube far cheaper and better to go in your own. I’m sure there are better ripper tours but this one was TERRIBLE! I want my money back

    No idea why they have you meet at the bus station. It’s a walking tour. They drive you on a very old bus that probably shouldn’t be on the road. Once we got to the walking part of the tour, the tour guide took upon himself to go into great detail on why most of what you’ve heard about Jack the Ripper is wrong, and that he has a FB Page that we should follow to get the real story. He was very long winded, and chose to talk just as much or more about English history than he did about Jack the Ripper. We chose to duck out of the walking tour after about 45 minutes. We walked by another Jack the Ripper tour and that guide seemed to be doing a much better job. I would not roll the dice on this tour.

    so much history and interest. The tour guide was great. Alot of walking involved but well worth it. Got to lots of attractions while driving around London.
