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.

I found it difficult just get on the bike and start pedalling. I would recommend a 5 minute off road period to get a feel of the bike starting: pedalling, checking gears and readjusting seat height BEFORE going out onto the road. I am an experienced road cyclist and even I found the adjustment to a strange bike frustrating and it was not until we got to Parliament Square that I began to feel comfortable. I was not aware of any instructions being given bout how to use the gears before we started, which to a novice cyclist would have been pretty important to know. Personally, I think everyone should have worn a bicycle helmet, especially the guide. I realise it is not mandatory in the UK, but I know from personal experience that helmets prevent serious injury.

We had a very enjoyable ride through the streets of London, accompanied by an easy going and knowledgeable tour guide. We were able to cover more ground with the bike than on foot and at an easy pace. A great way to get to know London's landmarks.

Great tour!! Alan Doyle was terrific. Funny and energetic. The site does not mention how far you walk, but it is a comfortable pace. loved the extra history and sites!!!

Allan the tour guide was absolutely amazing! The tour takes you around London and tells you the story in an sort of interactive way. I was absolutely flabbergasted!
