Owner description: Our Jack the Ripper tour takes place seven nights a week at 7pm. We meet outside Aldgate East Underground Station. 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.

Great Tour very informative and the host was very excitable and knowledgeable. Knowing they were interested and had a personality made me more interested. Have noticed there are many ripper tours so check reviews on here before you review or book, don't get stuck with a rubbish one!

We took part at the tour with John, our guide. He was very enthusiastic and very keen on giving us all the background infiormation. Though the story is very sad, he could make us laugh as well. We learned a lot and we will definitely recommend the Jack the Ripper tour !!

Lindsay our tour guide was very knowledgeable in what she was saying but she always answered our questions, she told us about her background regarding Jack the ripper I.e working with Scotland yard and writing books on this subject. I would highly recommend going on "Jack the ripper walk" to anyone, money well spent.

A great tour of old Whitechapel. John the guide was very knowledgeable and portrayed the history and hardship of nineteenth century London life to perfection. Fascinating ninety minutes sand up to date revelations made it a joy to behold.

Booked this tour on recommendation from a friend. Definitely worth the price and you have to book - good as the other tour groups wandering around had twice as many people as our group. Phillip was really knowledgeable and friendly, and got a good many laughs out of the group (despite the subject matter!) Thanks for a good evening.

Totally blown away with Phillip's knowledge & enthusiasm ... learnt so many new facts & unlike other tours were shown numerous photos to back them up. Phillip was happy at the end to spend time with my son answering all his questions. This... More
