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

I can't quit telling people about the fabulous Jack the Ripper Walk I took in Whitechapel when I was in London 28 June 2014. Philip was our guide and he brought such an authenticity to the tour. His enthusiasm and knowledge of the area and happenings of the period where genuinely mesmerizing. I had the pleasure of walking beside him... More

Had the tour last night with John as our guide. He was an excellent storyteller and we enjoyed every minute. I am absolutely no expert on this story and it was interesting to learn what happened during these months. Also a very good way to visit the east end of London.

An amazing and thrilling historical tour, which my Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed. Philip, our guide, was an outstanding story-teller of the gruesome tale. Also, I plan to write my history dissertation on Jack the Ripper and this tour has given me some valuable knowledge. Additionally, Philip was very kind and wrote some down some authors I should look up.... More

Incredibly informative with a very knowledgeable guide who took us to the sites of many of the crimes and to the establishments frequented by both the victims and potentially the murderer, great to do before the London dungeon!

We went on this on our last night in London. John was our guide and he was great. Ow what he was talking about and made us laugh at times. We had walked through London for 3 days so were very tired but this tour was a leisurely stroll. Very insightful and I highly recommend. Best £9 I've ever spent.

If you're a fan, it's so worth making the tour. Nice walking tour of the Whitechapel area along with images included from the investigation. Very informative guide; answered many questions. Just make sure to go to Aldgate EAST station of the tube - not Aldgate. BIg difference. :)
