Because this was really two tours patched together, I'm kind of sad that the star rating doesn't let me separate them.

The first part of the tour was led by Leslie, who was very knowledgeable about London, and St. Paul's in particular. She clearly was interested in the stories of the Cathedral's survival during WWII, and the stories of the heroics were well told. She also did a good job describing why the Cathedral was built and decorated the way it was, why it has a dome, and why one part is colored in decor while the rest is in white and shades of gray. There was time to wander as well.

The Tower tour, though...well...there was a general description of the building and its history, and a trip to the Crown Jewels, but unfortunately she became fascinated with a wedding that may or may not have been happening. We had visited the Tower earlier, with a guide who was more interested in the seamier side of Tower's history. Most of that history had more to do with deaths and funerals than weddings. We were left with scant time to visit much more than the armory in the White Tower before we had to leave. Before the guide went off, we asked when and where we were to gather for the Ripper tour, and she got the time wrong. So: fun time at St. Paul's, less fun with the Tower.

Phil was our guide for the Jack the Ripper tour. He not only went over the facts, but was an expert at getting in to the spaces where events actually happened even if urban improvements had covered them up. His descriptions were graphic, but necessary, and he gave a complete overview of the events and the theories. He did it without wearing a Victorian costume, but held attention without tricks. There were no ghosts mentioned on the tour, but it was enough without the ghosts. The fish and chips sample, from Poppies Fish and Chips in Spitalfields, were the best that I've ever had. My grown son has not willingly eaten fish in fifteen years, but this time he asked for mine. Which I'd already consumed. Sorry, son.

So: St. Pauls, very good. Tower, vague and disappointing. Ghostless Ripper tour, a well developed, well practiced presentation and utterly fascinating.

The Tour guide and Coach driver were both great! The only negative I have is that the second part of the tour, the Jack the Ripper walk tour was cancelled the day before. I was contacted via email so at least I knew about it but it was still a disappointment. The tour guide, Lesley really made the tour throughly enjoyable.

I can highly recommend the Jack the Ripper and Ghost Walking Tour, which was awesome and our guide was fabulous. We should have booked this tour on it's own.
The sightseeing tour component of this London Super Saver however I would not recommend. This tour was advertised as an afternoon London City Sightseeing Tour including Tower of London, however we joined a tour which had commenced in the morning, and thus there was not really much sightseeing or commentary from our guide. We would have been far better off just travelling directly to the Tower of London via the underground and thus being able to spend more than 1 1/2 hr at the Tower of London, as there was insufficient time to see it all.
