We were extremely lucky our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a real experience
I went on this tour with my two daughters, it was on the day of my youngest 18th. We had Tom as our guide who was excellent, his stories were really good, his own personal story was very engaging. He even managed to chat with lots of the group during the tour. We particularly enjoyed the boat trip, not to mention the wine, all in all a lovely walk round London with some vivid stories and great company, good job Tom
We booked our tour as a 30th birthday surprise for our sons and went on the Saturday before Christmas. We really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about London too. Our guide, Tom, really knew his stuff and told lots of stories. We would definitely do another one. Maybe Jack the Ripper next time!!!
The Ghost Walking Tour was a big hit with the kids and excellent value for money given the inclusive river trip. The walking was good exercise too. The guide was enthusiastic and entertaining, thank you Joel.
This tour was really fun and interesting. The guides were really enthusiastic and friendly. We heard some great stories which were all very spooky and cool :) Definitely worth it.
The tour guide met us at the agreed spot and was very punctural, welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Our experience with the Ghost Walking Tour was very entertaining. We were taken to the most haunted spots in London and given all the details of the hauntings. We used the Underground once and also moved efficiently to the Tower of London on a Thames boat cruise. Our guide was a wealth of information and answered all of our questions as well as providing lots of information about the ghosts of London. Very very enjoyable experience. As well, when we called the local contact number to confirm our reservations once we were in London, we met with very friendly, efficient and helpful service. Everything advertised was delivered.
We had a great time. Our guide was hilarious!
The tour was amazing! We had a really cool and funny guide who told us interesting stories about London's haunted past. The cruise along the Thames was my absolute highlight!
Enjoyed the tour very much. Tom our guide was interesting to listen to. Good to walk through the parks and streets with old history.
The tour was very interesting and was great value for the price £16 each! Joe, our guide, was very good and commanded good respect from the visitors. His tales were informative and well delivered. Overall, a highly enjoyable experience!
Extremely funny, it is a must do in London. The only thing I would point as 'not perfect' is that our guide was speaking really fast - for my sister and my brother-in-law who were with me in the tour it was very hard to understand as they dont speak English every day, so I had to tell them most of the stories we heard later on because they didnt understand them. What I did in a very nice pub, having some beers
Pretty fun! You get your money's worth with a walking tour and a boat ride. Only problem was that it was a little on the long side so make sure to wear your walking shoes since there is a lot of walking involved. Overall, a good time with a great, fun guide! Do it if you have some extra time!
Entertaining guide takes you on a fast paced walk around London. Didn't see any ghosts but the stories were good.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable regarding ghosts and ghouls and we really enjoyed the tour. Walking through London at night is fantastic. The London eye and many other sites are all lit up which adds to the atmoshphere.
We were hoping for more Jack the Ripper sights and more information on him, since he is one of the most famous London killers, however we really learned a great deal of interesting facts about the city, the history, and got goose bumps a few times :) Be prepared to do a lot of walking during this 2.5 hours tour, wear comfy shoes! My feet hurt after we were done. The boat tour down the Thames was a nice break with great views of the city!
This was an interesting tour giving us some of Londons more scary and grusome facts! we enjoyed our evening and our guide was funny and knowledgable.
This tour wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was fun and informative none the less!
Our tour guide Will was knowledgeable and friendly.
While we did get to see some of the haunts of London, we weren't expecting it to be so fast paced. You cover quite a lot of the city, quickly, and mostly on foot.
Would recommend for those who enjoy Ghost stories, but be prepared for a workout!
The tour was good, not particularly scary but interesting enough - if you have a spare night in London and you're into plague pits and hainted buildings, this is a good one.
We enjoyed the tour and the historical content very much.
However there were far too many people on it so you couldnt always hear- 50+. Also Viator said there would be a river trip to finish- there was not! We had to pay extra to catch the underground train back to Tower Hill- unsatisfactory!
The guide we had was lovely and very knowledgeable. There is a lot of travelling involved which was fine but I would have liked a couple more stops with more ghost/history stories. The group size was very large which the guide handled well but I think the tour would benefit from either more guides or more tour times to stagger demand. We enjoyed the boat ride although it would have been better if there were more toilets on the boat as there was only one. Would definitely book with Viator again.
Was unable to attend due to illness, but it sounded like a lot of fub
I expected a spooky and scary walking tour but it turned out to be more of a comedy. The tour guide was a nice young fellow who took us to different parts of the city and told us about strange occurrences but he made us laugh more than anything. He didn't even mention Jack the Ripper. The cruise on the river was nice and relaxing but if you are looking for a spooky tour, this is not it.
