Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Arriving in a traditional London black taxi, your private driver will collect you from your central London hotel, and then you’ll be on your way. Safe in the black cab’s comfortable seats, sit back and watch the spooky sights of London pass by as your driver gives you the lowdown on the capital’s ghosts and ghouls.

On a route around central London, you’ll discover all the haunted parts of the city – both around well-known sights like Big Ben and the Tower of London, and around lesser-known darkened streets in neighborhoods like Mayfair, St James and Shoreditch.

Visit the place where London’s infamous villain -- Jack the Ripper -- met his victims, and hear tales from your guide of ghostly apparitions, like Percy the Poltergeist who mysteriously appears at Burlington’s Arcade on London’s Piccadilly. Learn about the amusing 18th-century myth of Scratching Fanny, and the Phantom Landlord, who appeared to leer over his patrons in a city pub.

Stop to walk around with your guide around intriguing dark alleyways, and learn about a very different London in the days of the Plague. Visit the building that is said to be Britain’s most haunted, and stop for a drink (included) in a 300-year-old pub – one that is ghostly of course.

After 2.5 hours of exploring London’s darker side, your guide will drop you back off at your hotel – safe from the streets with their lurking lost souls!

Our driver was knowledgeable and generous with his time. He drove us all over central London and it proved a great introduction to the city.

Our Jack the Ripper tour had been canceled at the last minute, getting a replacement tour at a short notice was not at our favor especially with a extreme busy weekend in London, I decided to look at Viator website and decided on a private tour. This was no disappointment. We had the same driver from our previous Black Cab Tour. Steve a great sense of humor and took time to visit a couple of pubs. a great way to end a long day. We diffinitely will use Viator again.

Driver Jerry and his traditional black cab were awesome - funny and lots of information and stories. We had a 6:30 tour and doesn't get dark till after 9. May have made it spookier if it had been dark but would not have gotten to see as much either. Overall excellent tour!!!

Very nice and fun. Guide was very helpful and made sure we enjoyed the trip setting up special pictures shots.

Gerry was our guide and totally rocked the tour. While I would not call this a "ghost tour" per se, it was an exceptional "driving tour" of London with a LOT of history packed in. We had 3 in our party; the cab was clean and comfortable. The whole experience was very enjoyable and I have recommended this tour to friends since our return to the States.

We had the unusual circumstance of not having the usual ghost tour driver available due to a family emergency (which we totally understood). Frank filled in and did everything he could to make it a fun experience, however, it was simply a drive around the city for two hours and not a ghost tour. We appreciated the effort but were disappointed. However, these things happen, so we just tried to make the best of it and enjoy it for the sites we did see.

I would not recommend this tour and feel that we should be given back the 281.05 we paid. Our cab arrived 20 minutes early. 2 seats in the cab were definitely not comfortable for a 73 and 68 year old. The description for this tour led you to believe that you would be escorted to the majority of the sites by cab. After 55 minutes of walking among crowds and barely hearing what our guide was saying, I stopped our guide and asked why we were walking and not being transported by cab. Mind you I walk with a cane and am 69. The pace was far too fast and noisy. There was no mention of Jack The Ripper stories or victims. There was nothing spooky or frightening about this tour at all. And, there was no way we were going into the pub. We could barely walk around the crowd outside the entrance let alone go inside. The highlight of the tour was the last stop and seeing the London Tower Bridge lights from a distance. We purchased this tour as a gift for our friends -- what a disappointment. I definitely do not recommend this tour for seniors or for a thrill seeking experience.
