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

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

Our guide Philip was brilliant, a true ripperologist and fun person. Even though I'm not an English native speaker, I understood everything and the whole tour was just amazing. It's definitely worth more than 9 pounds!

A fairly full-on 90 minute tour with an excellent guide, who really brought out the terror that must have faced the so many desperate women at the time of the Ripper Murders. The guide really brought out that these 'unfortuantes' were often selling their bodies, for 4 pence, to pay for their accommodation for the night (also 4 pence)...just surviving... More

Went with friends from Australia on this tour and was really happy we went! Lindsey was a great guide and I learned a lot about Jack the Ripper and London in general in the late 19th Century!
