    Not as good as the previous Ghost Tours, but still worth doing. This tour is more history and less paranormal.
    Quite recently, I went on the Paranormal Activity Tour in Old London and it was brilliant. But I decided to try out the London Bridge Ghost Tour and see how that one was. As much as I hate saying this from a "paranormal enthusiasts" point of view. It is slightly weaker that the previous two. The tour guide was the same person who I came across on the Paranormal Activity Tour in Old London tour, I was so happy to see her again. It was Stephanie. This tour is not so much focused on the paranormal, but more so on the history of that area of London. So if your looking to hear about the ghost stories in that part of London. I hate to burst your bubble here, your out of luck. Stephanie does know her history about that area of London and that some of the paranormal activity was focused on London Bridge, Borough Market and The Clink Prison Museum. I did mention to Stephanie and the group, that I went inside the Clink Prison Museum years ago and I told them that it is a toned down version of The London Dungeon, but it's not as good. I wouldn't say this tour was a bad one. Just don't expect too much out of this one, if your interested in paranormal tours around London, my advise is to stick to the Haunted London Pub Walking Tour and the Paranormal Activity Tour in Old London by this company. But if your interested in the history of that part of London and less on the paranormal then the London Bridge Ghost Walking Tour is the one for you. This particular tour also had a sad ending because it focused on the history of the Crossbones Graveyard and the people buried there. (It wouldn't surprise if that graveyard is haunted)

    Ghostly fun informative
    Our tour guide, Seb, did a really good job explaining all the different ghost stories in Greenwich. We had lots of spooky fun!

    Excellent: informative, engaging and fun!
    Excellent tour; entertaining, informative and conducted at an ideal pace. The guide, Ulrike, was excellent and delivered an extraordinary amount of information in an engaging manner (and had sufficient power in her voice to ensure the whole group could hear over the usual city noise). Highly recommended.

    Great tour. Our tour guide Seb was great, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and funny. I liked the balance of ghost stories mixed with a little history. Very enjoyable evening.

    This ghost tour of old London is worth going on and would recommend. Don't get scared now.
    Last year I went to the Haunted London Pub Walk by Lantern Ghost Tours. I was extremely impressed, this time I decided to give the Paranormal Activity Tour in Old London a go. I was extremely impressed with Stephanie who was our tour guide and her knowledge of this subject, apparently she told the guests that she is empathic. I can relate to her because as I mentioned on my review of the Haunted London Pub Tour last year, I'm a paranormal enthusiast and have been studying this subject for many years. I've been on another ghost walk of London many years ago. But this one is a lot better, because you also get a chance to use devices that a paranormal investigator would use. I used a K2 meter and there were times that I was picking up some activity along the way. There was one location that we went to which was Cock Lane. (which to the paranormal community is a very famous haunting, another one is 50 Berkeley Square London) I was already aware of the story and when Stephanie related it to the other guests, she got it absolutely right. I also told the guests that this case is genuine, which took them by surprise. Stephanie also issued a warning to the group to not use a ouija board just before the tour ended, she herself stopped using one ages ago. When she said that, I then told the guests, when it comes to using a ouija board "Don't tempt fate". I personally wouldn't touch those things with a ten foot barge pole and neither should they. If you are considering going on a ghost tour and walk of London with any tour guide. I strongly recommend that you go with Lantern Ghost Tours and not the others, because I can tell from my own research of the paranormal that these tour guides really know their stuff and this is especially true with Stephanie.

    Very good ghost tour
    Had a really good evening spending a couple of hours on a ghost walk. Our guide Stephanie was very engaging and brought the stories to life as we walked around. Good to get to try out some gadgets in a grave yard with interesting results. Would definitely recommend it and will look to book another tour.

    Awful do not waste your money!
    Excited to finally be able to get hold of tickets for tonight, despite the bad weather we were positive. What a shocking experience we have lived in London for 20 years and by far this is the worst tour ever. It was so bad 7 people dropped out during it which is pretty telling! A shoddy tale of the ghost of Cutty Sark, a tale of St Alfredge Church, a tale of river rats and of Trafalgar pub where we stopped for a drink. We ended up walking down many steps to the foot tunnel only to be asked if he could see and hear ghosts! Eventbrite shame on you for supporting such a poor company!

    This tour was purchased for me as a gift via Red Letter Days. When you call the number provided, an automated message advises they only deal via text message. I tried to communicate via text but have had no response and have had to request Red Letter Days allow me to transfer the value toward something different. Very poor.

    Our guide was very passionate and was a catchy storyteller. The tour had very interesting plots and sightseeing. With a grand finale in the end. Too bad the tour ended 25 minutes sooner than planned

    Great mix of spooky and historical
    Fantastic tour with the knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide, Seb. Great balance between spooky and history. Loved the relaxed approach. Was a refreshing change to the tours in costume. Would definitely recommend to friends.

    Me and my mum did the ghost walk with Henry as our tour guide. He was fantastic, really energetic, informative and funny. We learned more than just about ghosts, which was nice, love a bit of history!

    Underwhelming
    Sold as a family ghost tour, but in reality it’s a pleasant walk with some rather dry story telling and not aimed at families. The ten minute forced stop at the pub was fruitless. The group was arguable too big (29 people) to manage and meant we blocked pavements. This is no reflection on our great guide but a reflection of the overpriced package offered.

    A nice walk around Greenwich but not enough Ghost Stories
    Our guide Seb was very knowledgeable and it was a nice walk around the attractions of Greenwich. It was not very Ghostly and more of a history tour. Would have preferred more Ghostly stories

    Best Walking Tour in London
    A great guide who showed us a lot of the more obscure sites around London Bridge, some really cool stories that were unique and spooky! The guide was quick-witted and put in a lot of historical context that enhanced the stories immensely for us. Honestly, one of the highlights of our trip, would absolutely recommend to a friend.

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide Simon was entertaining, funny, and informative. We visited several ‘ghastly’ locations, and 3 charming pubs, all the while being regaled with spooky stories. We had ample time at each pub for a drink, and really enjoyed getting to know the other folks on the tour. Great night out in London!

I've been on a ghost tour before and when I saw this one I also had to give this one a go as well.

I've been a paranormal enthusiast for many years and was very impressed with the tour guide because she did know the local haunted pubs in and around the area of London where the tour was being conducted, (I wish I could remember her name) I was equally impressed with her knowledge of the paranormal and I could relate to her very easily.

One of the guests though that I was part of the tour. But I then explained that I was just a guest attending the tour, but I have a very strong interest in this subject and I was telling the other guests information about the paranormal events that happened in England, they were left amazed.

Even if you don't believe in ghosts and the paranormal, going on these tours will show you the spooky side of London which isn't that well known about and it's great night out. Enjoy the tour and if you do see something, don't be scared tell the group and if you can try and get a photograph.

We did this during lockdown . The streets were unusually deserted for a Saturday night in London city. And some of the pubs were shut. However our guide had to divert from the normal routine. We got to go to the usually closed rooms upstairs at the the Old Cheshire Cheese and some paranormal activity was witnessed!!!
Great Knowledge. Great night. Many thanks

I booked the Haunted Pub tour for my sister. It was to be a highlight of her short trip. I was contacted by Genolita who told me some of the pubs would be closed on the planned date and we would need to change our dates. She offered a date a few days earlier and we replanned the itinerary. On the morning of the newly scheduled tour, I tried to phone Lantern to check that everything was in order but got no answer.
My sister and her husband arrived to the pick up location stated on the ticket and nobody turned up to fetch them.
30min later, I was contacted by the tour guide of a completely different tour departing from a completely different part of London asking where my sister was. It turns out that Lantern didn't just change the date but changed the whole tour with pick up etc and just didn't bother letting us know. My family wasted an entire night of their short trip to London. They had to make their way back to my house very disappointed.
2 days have now gone past and nobody has reached out to apologise. I have again tried phoning the number provided so I can ask for a refund but it just disconnects and says the number is not contactable.
I understand mistakes happen but I don't believe this has been handled well at all. If someone answered the phone on the morning of the tour, all of this would have been avoided. If someone would answer the phone now, the disastrous tour could be refunded. Instead we are £28 and a Saturday evening down. Shoddy

Both myself and partner loved this!! The historical part of the tour is great, the stories are fun and the tour guide was a good laugh. We had breaks at 3 pubs and got to know both the tour guide and the other people on the tour.

Definitely worth going!! Great value as well!!
