Hi James thank you for posting your review. I am sorry it wasn't what you expected. When you read the description was there anything that suggested that I would include the gory or the scary and creepy?
Here is my description.
"Maximum group size 12 so you will not be following 35 or 40 people. We start at Whitechapel Underground Station because that's where Jack the Ripper started. With the help of the FBI Special Agent John Douglas's 1988 profile of Jack the Ripper and Scotland Yard's 2008 geographical profile you will explore Jack the Ripper's territory from his first murder in Buck's Row to his last in Dorset Street. You will discover the victims story. Who they were. Why they were targeted. How they could have been killed so swiftly and silently. We will examine some of the assumptions that were made at the time. Assumptions that are still popular with today's 'Ripperologists'. It's a truly fascinating story that goes beyond the cliche of the toff in his top hat and opera cape seeking his next victim among the raddled fourpenny whores of Whitechapel. And whether you've only heard his name or read a dozen books on Saucy Jack I want to share this story with you."
The reviews should have also indicated the focus of the walk. One very recent review that you would have seen actually gave it the heading:
"Very kid friendly tour" and went to say
marce112005, Jul 2022 "Richard our tour guide was on time and a lot of fun. My kids and I enjoyed Richards story telling of Jack the Ripper. If you are looking for a kid friendly tour this is definitely one. It’s not scary at all but very interesting."
And none of the reviews would have indicated that it was in anyway gory, scary or creepy.
"Wonderful experience. Absolutely fascinating! Richard is probably the best guide I have ever had the pleasure of exploring with and I have taken hundreds of tours over the years!"
"Very sound knowledge of his subject and he brought the characters to life!"
"Outstanding Walk With Richard. This was an outstanding walk with Richard, a master raconteur with great passion for and knowledge of his subject. We 8 family members were enthralled by the chance to peer into a grisly period of Victorian London with the guidance of a true expert in the field. The intimate group size was a bonus and, for my wife and me, preferable to the larger numbers in a Ripper tour we did maybe 10 years back."
"Fantastic Experience. Such a great experience, really enjoyed all of the fascinating detailed information and loved his passion for the subject. Really fascinating, really glad we did the tour. Highly recommended."
"Wonderful tour, wonderful guide. Richard is an excellent guide, really impassioned. I loved the intimacy of this walk compared to other large groups doing the tour. I highly recommend!”
However James I am sorry you were disappointed but I hope you will agree it wasn't because the product description and reviews misled you.
Very best wishes
