We ask you to book because we limit the number of participants on each tour to around 34 people per guide. We go straight into the old alleyways where the Jack the Ripper murders occurred in the autumn of 1888. Several of our guides are published authors on the subject. « less

Loved the history given behind the story we all know. Phillip was a great tour guide who kept us entertained but also shared facts with us..especially with the new DNA evidence that recently came to light. He knew his stuff! It's a mystery that we all want to be solved but can it be?! Sign up for the tour and... More

We had this tour last week led by John and it truly was an experience! He was extremely knowledgeable, not to mention comical and very entertaining! Sorry when it was over!

I was in London by myself for work and wanted to do something a bit off the beatin' path. After some quick research I decided on this as I have always had an interest in unsolved things. This company and our guide, Philip, did not disappoint! He was one of the best (if not THE best) guides I have ever... More

One of the best tours I've been on in a long time. Our guide Phillip was excellent and self-admittedly a "bit off". He was very knowledgeable and made the tour quite enjoyable while seeming to have a good time himself. It was a great experience that I highly recommend to anyone visiting London. I do have to challenge Phillip's assertion... More

Was completely surprised with this tour. Thought it was another tourist trap that my sister in law signed us up for. No heavy walking(longest walk 45min), very informative guides and also very friendly. This is a MUST do if you want a spine chill while in London!

All I can do is reiterate what the other positive reviews of this tour have said. It is easy to find at the Aldgate East Underground Station, the guide is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the topic, and the tours is very informative. I really enjoyed this tour, and recommend it highly.

I have been intending to go on one of these walks for years and picked discovery tours from quite a list of companies on the internet. There were 3 tours running at the same time (just by this company) and my guide for the experience was Lindsay who was very passionate about the subject and involved in her own research.... More

We very much enjoyed this tour of Whitechapel. Our guide, Lindsay, is very knowledgeable about the subject and gave a very spirited and educational presentation. The tour included pictures of the areas and crime scenes, which were very helpful, as many of the locations and buildings have changed significantly since Victorian times. I would very much recommend this activity!

Our tour guide John was brilliant! He was well-educated, informative, able to add humour to lighten the mood and easy to understand. The overall tour is fantastic and I'd definitely recommend it to friends and family!

While visiting friends in London my wife and I decided to take this tour for a bit of affordable fun. We chose this tour over others we found online because it promised a straightforward, no gimmick experience. Our guide, John Bennett, was very knowledgeable and engaging. It's clear he has a passion for this mysterious piece of history and he... More
