Andy was a serving police officer for 31 years, working the tough East End streets around Tower Hamlets for much of his early career.
As well as being a font of knowledge about London and an expert on The Krays, he has many a fascinating story to tell from his days as a London Bobby.
Vas is a Londoner through and through, brought up in the area around St Pancras. You will probably recognize him as an actor, maybe best known for his role as Rory Breaker in the hit film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Vas will conduct our tour in his own charismatic style, guiding us through the streets of the East End, sharing tales of the notorious Kray twins as we discover their roots and local haunts.
Our after-dark Jack the Ripper Tour will be headed by one of the guardians of the Tower of London – an official Yeoman Warder (aka Beefeaters), so you’ll be in the most professional of hands! After-hours and out of uniform, they will take you on a journey through the streets of Whitechapel on the trail of Jack the Ripper.
We offer transportation throughout the tour either in our executive 8-seater Mercedes-Benz Vito or a minibus for larger groups, so you can sit back and enjoy the company of your fellow tour guests.
For travelling around London, we will either be on foot or using public transport. Any journeys on public transport are included.
We source unique accommodation for each tour, often steering away from hotels to find quirkier places for exclusive use by your group.
This is so we can offer hidden gems that might pass you by as individual travellers. Quality is key, however, and we ensure any accommodation booked meets our high standards.
