Jamie was our tour guide and he kept us on the edge of our seats. He balanced extensive knowledge on the topic with a good sense of humor to keep things light when some of the subject matter got intense. Had the entire group at full attention. He kept us moving and made his presentations on the topic well spaced... More

Both myself and my 14 year old son thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Mick was our guide and was a great storyteller. He was clearly an enthusiast and had an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Jack the Ripper. The ripper-vision was a hand held projector where photographs and sketches from the time are beamed onto the walls at various stops.Some of... More

This tour was great. We had Jamie as our tour guide (who was superb) and heard of the horrific crimes and the conditions in 1988 in the east end of London.

Whilst the guide was interesting and well informed, his projector (Ripper Vision) kept breaking and eventually stopped working altogether and the tour was spoilt by the sheer number of people they tried to cram onto the tour, there must have been 40+ of us, which was far too many for a good experience. I have done similar tours in other... More

While in London we did one of the many ripper tours ( some 40 are available ) the one we did had "Ripper Vision " where the guide carries a small projector and displays at various points during the tour, photo's and points of interest during the tour on to large area's of buildings that have a white background. This... More

We had Johnny as our guide and had a great night! He kept it lighthearted and entertaining. We learned a lot about the history behind the Jack the Ripper legend and the Ripper vision made it much better!

This walking tour was very entertaining and has inspired me to read more about the subject. Our host was Mick who was superb. He was knowledgable and incredibly enthusiastic. Mick managed to convey the horror of the crimes and the terrible conditions in the east end at the time but with enough humour to ensure it wasn't too dark! To... More

I stumbled upon Spitalfields market in the daytime and thought it was so charming. When a friend told me that neighborhood was where all the Jack the Ripper craziness happened and that you could do a night tour of the area, I was totally down! There are a few companies to choose from and I'm so glad I chose this... More

My friend booked this as an ad hoc Tuesday evening. We are Londoners and fancied finding out a bit more about the Jack the Ripper murders. We were not disappointed - Ripper Vision brought a fantastic angle to the tour, with the tour guide projecting images of London as it would have looked in 1888 onto the buildings as they... More

I spontaneously decided to join this walking tour on a Sunday evening and was pleasantly surprised. The group was not terribly large which I liked. The 'Ripper Vision' is a pretty cool tool that showed us original crime scene photos projected onto the surface of the actual Ripper crime scenes. The tour guide was very knowledgable and fun and engaged... More
