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.

Fun Time learning about a Gruesome set of Murders

How do you make the topic of Murder fun? Trust me our guide did just that. I will be honest, this is not a tour for the small kiddos. She was graphic about what took place in her telling of the events. But my 15 year old daughter enjoyed it. This was a great way tour for those that are hard core fans or just have the pop culture knowledge of Jack the Ripper. The open bus was a great way to get a look at some of London's top sites. There is a good part of walking. The bus does not have bathrooms, so plan ahead. One of the best things we did in London by far. Tour ends near the Sherlock Holmes Pub. Good for a quick drink after. Other nearby restaurants are open for a late night dinner. Our tour guide did point us in the right direction. The meeting spot of the tour is in an inner court of the bus station. It took me a bit to noodle that one. Read the confirmation info. It is clear.

Really interesting and informative tour!

The tour was very interesting and informative! The guide was engaging and enthusiastic about all things Sherlock Holmes! The tour wasn’t just about the films and tv show but about the books and history of Sherlock! Would recommend to any fans!!

Lovely guide (Katrina?), very friendly and knowledgeable.

Tour was good with lots of interesting sites visited and a good length. Would have preferred more focus on the original stories than the modern adaptations.
