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.

I learned more than expected about street art.

Josh (our tour guide) was fantastic. He had personal experience with street art, an encyclopedic knowledge of the area's history which contributed heavily to understanding the why's and how's of the art. I began the tour knowing just about nothing and came away feeling I had just taken an art history course. Thanks Josh, now get that MA!

Excellent guide with deep knowledge of the Jack the ripper murders

The tour was awesome, funny / a little bit crazy (in a good way) guide & scary Jack the Ripper experience with loads of information and pictures from the different victims and crime scenes. I would definitely recommend the tour to everyone who seeks a little little adrenalin kick and a guide with a trace of black humor.

Really brilliant, can’t recommend enough.

Yasmin was a fantastic tour guide. Loads of interesting info on the art but also the history of the area. I took my 14 year old goddaughter who lives in the country and she was completely wild about it. Really really interesting for me too and I thought I knew London well.

Really interesting and fun tour of this vibrant part of London

Great evening. Our guide was able to understand our needs as a group and shared really interesting info - both historical and current - about the huge amount of street art, and about the artists themselves. Thoroughly recommend the tour
