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.

Went on this tour Friday 12th December 2014, absolutely brilliant, our guide John was very knowledgeable about the subject, and gave us a chilling account of the old Whitechapel area. Would highly recommend this tour as there are an awful lot of them! We think we went on the best one. :-)

We booked this tour a week before attending after reading about various tours and reviews. We chose this tour because I was impressed that each guide has published books on Jack the Ripper and the price was reasonable (£9pp). The location to meet was easy to find and the staff had a sign.

We thoroughly enjoy the tour. We had the best tour guide, Lindsey. She was fascinating and made the tour absolutely engaging. She knew what she was talking about and there was not a moment of dullness. We recommend the tour a hundred present.

Our tour guide was interesting and gave the most engaging performance whilst sharing the historical facts of Jack the Ripper. I was impressed with his knowledge and learned a lot about the whole mystery including how many of the 'Hollywood/film' bits of information are inaccurate.

Now being an avid ripperologist I wasn't expecting much really. But no. I was mistaken. Our very animated tour guide Philip did inject a lot of personality into this tour. Giving it both the fun and educational factor in one swipe of the blade (pun intended).

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 !!
