OK I didn't go with this tour company, I had a private guide named Pepe Martinez. This tour was very good. The main touring groups have crowds of 20 or so people and we were a... read more

we did the tour at 7 pm on a sunny August evening (not dark) Bruce our guide was very informative even though he had to contend with helicopters, motorbikes & London traffic. the eerie thing was that we watched Ripper Street & all the information that Bruce had spoke of was mentioned in this program & gave this a quite...

Great tour mostly due to the vivid descriptions of the guide as the corporation of London already knocked down most of the buildings. It's a lovely walk and as the sun sets and it gets darker and darker you get a real feel of the events being described. Recommended not only the tour but our guide Richard Walker.

I've been to London several times and taken quite a few of the London Walks guided tours but have always avoided the Jack the Ripper tour for fear that it would be to dramatic and sensation-seeking. But my husband wanted to hear about Jack the Ripper this time so off we went. And it turned out to be a very... More

London walks, the best, our guide knew everything, 7/08/2015 My hubby knew it all, or so he thought, was a fascinating tour, very eerie, actually going to the places where the poor victims died, worth every single penny, well done London tours, oh and we were stood in wrong place, but made sure they alerted everyone so we joined !!!...

This was my first London Walks walking tour. It was great. Took it with family at 7:30 p.m. meeting at the London Tower tube station entrance. No fuss no muss touring. You show up and you pay the guy, but be sure you hook up with the right one because they say that impostors sometimes try to lure folks who... More

There is nothing like an enthusiastic and passionate tour guide when you have this kind of group tours. It is almost everything to make your tour unforgettable. The guide did it very well for us to keep the interest in Jack The Ripper's Walking Tour and he really put passion in his work while telling us the story and showing... More

We had Richard as our tour guide for this London Walk and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was still light when we did our tour as it is summer so I would love to go again when it's the winter months as it will add to the atmosphere. I really enjoyed the tour. Richard had a great knowledge of the... More

We arrived in plenty of time for our tour, but there was some confusion as to exactly where we were supposed to be, so we did not attend the tour. The next day, we tried again. There was success this time. When the tour guide arrived, we thought we were all set and on our way. We had to wait... More

We specificly took this tour to hear from this guide. Don Rumbelow wrote the best and most complete book on Jack the Ripper. Having Don take you to the places and give you details of London in that era was extra special. Many of the places have been changed over the years, so don't expect exact locations right out a...
