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

My wife and I were in London for a couple of days, on a friends recommendation we booked to do the ripper tour. After reading several books on the subject (being a lover of Victoriana) I was really surprised at our guide Lyndsay's knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for the subject !

What a great Jack the Ripper tour we experienced. Philip Hutchinson was great and he really knew his subject and the delivery of the story was fantastic, funny, gripping and overall made for a great tour. Would definitely recommend this tour

Did this tour a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our Guide was the informative and amusing, Philip Hutchinson. Highly recommend this tour and if you're lucky, you too will have Philip as your guide.

Very good tour with a great guide. This put detail into many books read and films/series watched. Only two little niggles would have liked abit of time to take a picture or two and maybe a souvenir purchase opportunity.

You can't go wrong with one of these tours. Our guide was the wonderful Lindsay Siviter. Lindsay showed many period photographs and documents. We went across few streets with modern office blocks etc. She had a great loud voice so there was no trouble hearing her! There were many tours out that night but none were as good as this... More

I took the tour with my sisters and we greatly enjoyed the stories told by our marvellous guide Philip Hutchinson. He really knew his stuff and acted the key parts of the stories in a massively entertaining way. We can only recommend the tour and particularly Philip as a guide!

Searched, found and booked this tour very easily for a second date. The instructions were clear and the reminder was great too. Easy to spot where to go when the time came to join the group. The tour was given by an enthusiast which made it very entertaining indeed. Would definitely recommend this tour to others and have done since!

Me and my husband went on this tour led by John , who was very knowledgeable and passionate about the ripper mystery. There are lots of companies doing a similar thing but very much doubt they have a patch on this tour.

It doesn't get better than this! For £9 you will walk along with one of the best ripperologists going. Our guide, Philip knows his stuff. He can communicate well and can keep the attention of his audience. He looks as though he's having fun, and if your guide is having fun, then so are you! This tour is a must... More

Dear Trudy Thank you for your review. Its good to hear you enjoyed your tour with Philip, who is one of the most experienced guides leading the tours. Having written several books on the subject and appeared in many of the most recent documentaries he does know the subject inside out. Best wishes Richard More
