We had just left Tower Hill and were headed to the tube to go back to our hotel when we saw the signs for the tour. We were happy to now know where to go, but we just happened to run into Dickie who was starting a tour in the next 10 minutes or so. When I asked how much he said, "ahh, pay at the end if you enjoy yourself". Wow, ok...off we went with Dickie and the tour group.
He walked us all around hunting grounds of Jack the Ripper and not only told the story, but offered his theories on the subject and actively included the group. He also had tons of knowledge of the buildings in the area, and would sometimes tell the history of a random building that you would not normally notice.
Oh yeah, even better...he's a warder at the Tower of London...so he's basically a professional narrator / orator!! It was such a delight to stumble onto this tour like we did, but to find such a great one at that. I would highly recommend taking this tour without any reservations...just wear some walking shoes as it's a walking tour!!! lol
