Customer Reviews

"Where do I start with this gangster tour. If you want history of the East End and the gangsters who ran it you will not be disappointed. The bus is decorated with old photographs of the Kray twins, the Richardsons and others, as well as being open topped. If you are a fan of London gangsters and the old East End this is for you. I can't wait to go again." Andrew O
