Abstract: We have determined tidal radii for 30 globular clusters in the halo of M31 from deep direct images. Although the uncertainty of each individual measurement is large, in the mean the tidal radii suggest that the M31 globular clusters have orbital eccentricities and mass-to-light ratios that are very similar to those of Galactic globular clusters.
