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

Lindsay is a very knowledgeable tour-guide, with a great passion for what she does. The tour was absolutely informative, interesting and enjoyable. I'm more than enthusiastic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this experience :)

This is a must walking tour if you are interested in the Jack the Ripper Story. The guided walk takes you through the exact locations where the murders took place so it was quite eerie in some respects. A very informative and well organised tour. Would highly recommend.

As someone who 1) had read widely for some years about the Autumn of Terror and 2) possessed very limited free time during a business trip to London, I decided to try to maximize what opportunity I had and book a private Whitechapel tour. My guide was Richard Jones, and the experience couldn't have been better. He began by asking... More

My husband booked a short trip to London for my 40th Birthday and the first thing on our arrival on the 18th August was the Ripper Walk. Being one of those people fascinated by the Ripper legend, having read lots of books, watched films etc on the matter, (I even incorporated it into one of my pieces for my Criminology... More

Phillip was our guide and there was not a dull moment to be had during the entire tour. He was very friendly and approachable for questions, and was extremely knowledgeable in his responses. He has his own unique sense of humour which can only be and must be experienced. At the end of the tour in Mitre square, he even... More

I'm 13 and moderately deaf, unfortunately both or my hearing aid batteries had died just before the walk. Luckily, our guide was Phillip! I could still hear him loud and clear! I really enjoyed the walk and all the photographs, It was facinating dispite it being a gruesome subject! Phillip was brilliant, funny, and entertaining. I am really glad to... More

My husband & I joined this wonderful tour on our trip to London. Our tour leader was Lindsay who we found to be very knowledgeable, passionate & charming. Lindsay was also very professional and respectful of the locals. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

I will definitely recommend it as a must... More

The tour was very informative and a great way to spend a Friday evening. The tour guide (Barry) certainly knew his stuff, you could tell he really enjoyed the subject and this helped bring the tour and the subject alive. Photos were provided, these very gruesome and I would strongly recommend that children don't attend. Overall a great tour, highly... More
