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

Friend & I did this tour 27th September & we weren't disappointed. John our tour guide was brilliant, very well informed & managed to inject a little humour where appropriate. At each stop a couple of other tours arrived & left, while we were still listening to a gripping rendition of the Ripper story. A great tour & would thoroughly... More

I did this tour with two friends on Friday 26th September. It was their first time on a Ripper Tour but my second. Despite that, I found our tour guide, Lyndsey, highly informative, evidently passionate and knowledgable about her subject, quite happy to engage and quite dramatic in places it was called for. I was born in the East End... More

We were only in London for 3 days and decided to take the Jack-the-ripper tour. It was well worth the £9 each and two hours of our valuable "touring" time. Lindsey, our guide, was amazing! She was lively and so knowledgable, you can really tell she loves this topic. I would recommend this tour to everyone. It was awesome seeing... More

There are many "Jack the Ripper" tours now in London. Luckily, I chose this one. It left from the Aldegate East exit 4 Tube stop at 7pm and went for 2 hours, walking through East End. Our tour guide, Phillip, has been doing this for over ten years. He is a "hoot"! As knowledgeable as he is entertaining.

We loved our 'Jack the Ripper' walking tour! Our guide, John, was knowledgeable and informative - even throwing in irreverent humor to lighten the experience of a tour about a serial killer. I have taken many tours that specialize in murder and my boyfriend is also in the field. We were both very impressed by John's work, presentation, energy and... More

The tour taken by my husband and I was brilliant. Tour guide John managed the rarest of efforts; to entertain, inform, while at the same time remind the group of the circumstances that left victims so vulnerable to violence. I greatly appreciated his sensitivity combined with his ability to entertain. The tour itself was a great evening walk in an... More

Loved the history given behind the story we all know. Phillip was a great tour guide who kept us entertained but also shared facts with us..especially with the new DNA evidence that recently came to light. He knew his stuff! It's a mystery that we all want to be solved but can it be?! Sign up for the tour and... More

We had this tour last week led by John and it truly was an experience! He was extremely knowledgeable, not to mention comical and very entertaining! Sorry when it was over!

I was in London by myself for work and wanted to do something a bit off the beatin' path. After some quick research I decided on this as I have always had an interest in unsolved things. This company and our guide, Philip, did not disappoint! He was one of the best (if not THE best) guides I have ever... More
