    The problem with this 'review' is that there is no factual description of any part of the Tour. The only 'fact' in the review is, sadly, not a fact. 'The Blood and Tears walk' is not 2.5 hours long - it is, as I say,...More

    The Blood and Tears Walk is an entertaining and informative walk through some of London's most infamous sites of murder, execution, serial killers' dens, etc. Mr. McHugh is a wonderful story teller and a cultivated man. My daughter and I enjoyed it thoroughly! Chantal Blier

    Declan did an excellent job of painting a picture of the streets where blood curdling acts of murder occurred in London's past. My family thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Hi Donna. I will try and be as honest and informative as I can. It's a fairly fast-paced Tour because I have an awful lot to tell people in the two hours. That said, it used to be faster because I used to do two tours in... More
