For anyone nostalgic for the 60's and beyond, this was a great tour. Our guide Colin was excellent and had a wealth of knowledge and I hadn't fully appreciated the evolution of music with the inter-mingling of both art and pop scenes as the Beatles story took off. The guide asked for specific music groups of interest so for our larger group and a bigger bus, it was pretty broad, but he did a great job of referencing others like the Eagles, Stones, Queen and much more.
Lee, our driver was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, courteous, and geared the tour to our specific groups favorites. The trip was a gift for my partners 69th birthday, and when Lee found out my partner was a die hard Queen fan, he took us to 2 more of Freddie's properties, and made it a truly unforgettable experience. Then Lee spotted Jimmy Page walking out of his house, and gave us time to ohhh and ahhh like a bunch of teen age groupies. Abby Road, Sticky Fingers bar, and so much more. I would go back again, and HIGHLY recommend to anyone who loves rock, and enjoys a bit of history, music, and fun. Thank You, Jeanne and Mike Long Island, NY

Jack the Ripper Tour with 'Ripper-Vision' in London
Entertaining and knowledgeable
, Feb 2020
Johnny, our guide, is such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable Ripper expert. Perfectly dressed for the event, and a perfect level of humour that offsets the grim reality of what actually happened to the poor victims.
Mick was so outstanding! An expert, very passionate about his topic, personable, friendly, helpful, and theatrical to boot! I shouldn't have even deliberated on this one and I'm so glad I went! Even with a very large group he was easy to hear and gave personal attention to each. He made the streets come alive! I couldnt believe the dates and details he could rattle off not just about Jack but serial killers in general, without notes! The pubs in the area are great too
Jamie did a wonderful job; he had his information down cold and was highly knowledgeable. The tour has a definite feminist slant to it, which is incredibly refreshing and makes the whole thing more poignant.

This was by far the best tour I have ever went on. Interesting, funny, like being transported in time! Great background stories, music was great and weaved in throughout the day. Highly recommend this tour!
Lee was amazing with detailed stories of almost every street we went down, every band or singer mentioned by the group. Small group experience was awesome! I'm sure we could do the tour 10 more times and hear new stories from him every single time. Teenage daughter was so happy with the experience.

We signed up for a guided tour as we wanted to learn more than we would by just doing the self-guided tour. We met our guide Becky at the appointed time and place and spent an incredible 2 and 1/2 hours seeing highlights of the Museum. She was a wonderful guide, so knowledgeable and upbeat, and so full of great information. We could not have been any more pleased with her or the tour.

Fist time using Viator and would definitely recommend. Lovely small tour on a comfortable minibus. Graham our driver and information centre was excellent and friendly. We visited Bibury, Bradford and then Oxford. Bibury was beautiful for photos and a quick walk. Bradford has a gorgeous church and lovely shops with delicious cream tea. Oxford was amazing and spent the entire time sightseeing and exploring the city. Very reasonable priced tour. Thank you for a great day!
Let me just start by saying Graham was the best guide. He was very funny and make the long drive fun. The sites we breath taking and worth every penny. I was a tiny bit disappointed that we didn't stop in Bampton since it was one of the villages listed in the tour description. Other than that I would do this tour again and again. Even my husband who hates going on tours said that this was is favorite part of our trip.
The University City of Oxford and the idyllic countryside of The Cotswolds are two of the most popular day trips from London, but visiting on a large group tour can mean less time to explore. This full-day small-group tour ensures a personalized experience, with free time to admire Oxford landmarks like the Bridge of Sighs, Christchurch Cathedral, and the Ashmolean Museum, and visit the villages of Burford and Bibury.
Tour was more 'comedy' than we had anticipated. Although it was good to see some of the sights these weren't always visible due to lighting, traffic and lack of direction from the tour guide. Traffic hold ups are inevitable in London but this does also detract from the overall experience!
Me and my boyfriend had a great night. Once you get on the bus it has such an eerie atmosphere that it feels like you are seeing London from a totally new perspective. Full of horror stories and very talented actors/comedians 10/10 would recommend.
Ok so this bus Comedy Ghost tour was so much fun! It is silly mixed with comedy mixed with horror stories of London. Isabella was a great narrator and really funny. It was a rainy night and the bus was a perfect way to see London sights. Definitely would recommend.

London In a Day: Tower of London, Westminster Abbey & Changing of the Guard
Fantastic tour guide!
, Nov 2019
Richard 01....was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable and a great communicator. His comments observations, and historical perspective gave us great insight into the history of England. I would definitely recommend his guided tour to anyone. When in England....book Richard The First!
So glad I took this tour. It was so worth it. This was my 2nd time in London and I was dismayed at how much I missed the first time. Watching the guards in action was one of them. The guide know when and where to position ourselves. Our guide was excellent. So sorry I did not catch his name, but he was very knowledgable and had an excellent sense of humor. We actually sat and listened while he enthralled us with history and stories. Some people even stopped and listened in. He went above and beyond and you can tell he clearly love his job. I saw and learned so many things. Thank you so much. Job well done.
Gina paid close attention to the individual interests if the group and pointed those items of interest out to those people. It was a great day walking London and Gina was a seasoned veteran at navigating and storytelling. Highly recommended.
Limited time in London doesn’t have to mean a limited view of the capital. Soak up the key sights in just one action-packed day on this guided small-group tour. Explore Westminster Abbey and watch the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. Then cruise the Thames River to Tower Bridge and explore its inner workings before delving into British history at the Tower of London.
Excellent tour of Westminster Abbey, the tour guide offered an extensive background and history of the Abbey. Unfortunately, the House of Parliament was closed. However, I believe doing both tours would have been a bit much for my group.
Had booked the combo tour of Westminster Abbey and Houses of Parliament. The Westminster Abbey was a detailed guided tour. The tour to the Houses of Parliament starts immediately after the first tour ends. There was no time given to do some souvenir shopping inside the Westminster Abbey souvenir shop except a short bathroom break. The tour to the House of Parliament was an audio guide tour and not a guided tour as I was expecting. That was disappointing as it would have been good to have a guided tour inside the Parliament. The tour guide was knowledgeable but the tour could be more engaging rather than rote commentary. Have been on other tours where the guides are more engaged with their tour group. Would recommend other tours that have this package.
Get acquainted with two iconic London monuments on a half-day tour of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. While gaining fascinating insight into the royal history of Great Britain, absorb the Gothic grandeur of Westminster Abbey’s interior and head inside the Houses of Parliament—home to the renowned Big Ben—to see highlights like the House of Commons and Lord’s Chamber. From your guide, learn about the United Kingdom’s political system and major historic events while touring the prominent landmarks.
A good way to get out into the little villages even if you are not a Midsomer Murders fan. The little villages were all picturesque and a pleasure to visit. . The lunch stop in Henley seemed much too long.
The Day trip was boring due to the Tour Guide did not know a lot of her facts she had to refer to her notes also when she did her walking tour she did not wait for everyone to catch up she just explained the attractions to the few people at the front A rather disappointing day
Maureen(Mo) was absolutely lovely and so was our driver Nick.
It was a relaxed trip with like minded Midsomer fans from all over the world.
We visited so many places where the show was filmed and they were
A great fun day with a lot of humour thrown in for good measure.
Thank you so much,
Lyndelle and Stephen Gray

Did this in Oct. A great cool crisp night. Perfect for this tour! John was great with lots of detailed knowledge of all the crimes Very passionate about the story. Stopping for fish and chips was a nice treat. Was a surprise for my husband who loved it as well. Would def recommend to others
Our guide on this tour was John. He is extremely knowledgable and a very passionate story teller. The tour itself was very good, but John made it even better. As an added bonus, we stopped for a small serving of authentic fish and chips. We highly recommend this tour!
Our driver Nicholas and our tour guide Rhys were friendly and perfectly punctual for the beginning of our tour. Rhys is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour, from the short bus trip past some major historical points of interest and points of interest which are key to the story of the white chapel murders. The vox box system was perfect to be able to hear our tour guide as we walked the narrow darkened streets and the fish and chips was a really brilliant extra! Nicholas’ driving through the streets must be commended also, safety was high on both of the driver and tour guides agenda. Highly recommend this tour even if your not a “ripper” fan, you will be afterwards 😜

A friend and I went with my two children (10 and 7). We all loved it. Our guide Kate was fantastic and really made an effort to talk to us all and tell us anecdotes while we were walking between places. The fact that we were put into houses and asked trivia questions made the whole experience much more fun. We were taken to some really nice spots of London too that we never would have discovered if we hadn't done the tour. For the price I would definitely recommend it. My kids loved it!!!
Had great fun on this walk around London. Our guide Riccardo was great and showed awesome knowledge and gave really good insights into the Harry Potter filming and inspiration sites on the tour. Our 11 year old enjoyed the whole tour and was engaged by the questions and the content as were her parents on the historic areas of London. Recommend this tour if you want to see Parts of London off the beaten track and learn a thing or too. Good value!
Our guide, Natalie was very dedicated and enthusiastic. She engaged the participants with Harry Potter trivia throughout the tour and pointed out numerous landmarks that were featured in or inspired by the Harry Potter books and movies. She also showed us other famous areas in London as well. Our 10 year old daughter loved it!

First of all I had read other reviews where people said they had trouble finding the tour representative at the London train station. That was not my experience. The representative in uniform found me and was on time and very helpful. The train ride was nice. The Beatles story as well as the Magical Mystery Tour. If you love the Beatles this trip is worth it!

Skip the line at Westminster Abbey and head inside the soaring church, where your guide will share facts about its royal history. Next, you’ll have the rare opportunity to explore parts of the interior of the Houses of Parliament, which is frequently off-limits to the public.
This tour was absolutely worthwhile for us. The smaller group made it seem more intimate.
We all met at the Hard Rock London where the fun began. We first made a services stop to get food and beverage for the day so that we could have a picnic on the lawn at Highclere. After Highclere, we drove through the countryside until we got to the Yew Tree Farm where we spent lots of time exploring the gardens, the house and the barns. The cafe was a great place to end the tour with a tea.
Afterwards, we took country roads to some other scenic sites from the show - I'll leave those as surprise extras for you. We eventually landed in Bampton, where we were able to tour the village, the church, the library and visit local shops.
Highclere was the eventual highlight of the day where we did a tour of the house (tip: dont do this first, explore the grounds, have a drink, eat your lunch), toured the grounds, visited the exhibit in the basement and took lots of pictures.
Thank you to International Friends, and especially Amber and Richard and the staff at Yew Tree and Highclere.
Amber was a fantastic tour guide, chock full of humor, information, anecdotes, stories and insider tips for us. Our driver, Richard, was also fantastic, navigating the roads like a professional and getting us to our destinations safe, sound and on-time.

We had lots of fun and learned so much about not only some very interesting Beatles history but the history of the London neighborhoods and establishments that we visited. Ian was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time.
Thanks so much Ian, for a great night!
A nice overview of the key sites. Our guide was knowledgeable and managed the short time really well. We saw many places and he gave us a lot of good info. Great tour for folks who can’t manage walking tours (which I prefer if the sites are closer). It was nice in the evening with all the lights.
My husband and I were on vacation in London and this was one of our pre-booked tours. It was fantastic! My husband loves the Beatles and this hit all the highlights.

This is the Original Aldgate East Jack the Ripper tour that has been operating nightly since 1982. Our start point means that, within seconds of setting out, you are exploring the cobbled alleys and atmospheric old streets that have changed little since Jack the Ripper prowled their shadows. Our guides, Richard Jones, John Bennett, Philip Hutchinson, Angie Norman, Lindsay Siviter and Mark Ubsdell are experts on the case and have between them written more than ten acclaimed books on the Jack The Ripper mystery. They are able to present you with a detailed account of the crimes that shook the world in 1888. However, they present those facts in a dramatic and entertaining fashion that is both entertaining and inspiring, and which helps bring the history of the crimes to vivid life. From the start, it is as though you are a part of the Victorian police investigation, as you sift the evidence, examine the facts, and debate the crimes and arrive at your own conclusions.
