Our guide Steve did a great job with our group. He's a good storyteller that made it an interesting walk. It's not really a 'sightseeing' tour but it is kind of fun to walk around the dark streets with someone evoking images of London in the 1880s. Be forewarned, the tour ends and you are directed to the nearest tube... More

I'd wanted to do a Jack the Ripper tour for a while and this one sounded the best. It was good but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it. Of course, so much of East London was destroyed during the war that most of the street layouts have changed, plus buildings and locations have of course been... More

The stories are of course morbid and scary....but that's one of the reasons you are doing this tour, right?! It's one thing to hear stories, but another to actually be in the places where all of these things happened. Really interesting and would recommend!

This tour was lovely, the guide, Donald Rumbelow, was very knowledgable on Jack the Ripper (obviously, he had written a book!). We did a lot of walking (obviously) and he stopped at the significant parts (some directly related, others not). He did a great job in painting the scene of London in 1888, as everything has changed so much. Definitely... More

Great night out. Almost as great as a going to a show, but while standing and walking instead of sitting. £9 for adults. £7 for children.

This was one of the only organized tours we did in London (aside from the Tower of London). As soon as I heard about this I wanted to go, and was not disappointed. Took a bus to where we needed to get to and then walked throughout the highlights of Jack the Ripper's exploits. Great story, great guide. What made... More

We took our tour with Donald, an amaziningly knowledgeable guide. He not only knew Jack the Ripper extremely well, he was also able to paint a vivid image of the old London for us. At times during the tour, I felt I was attending a history class. Although he was not as animated as some other guides we encountered on... More

What an excellent way to learn about 'The Ripper' and the series of murders. We set off on our walk and were fully entertained by our guide. Going from place to place and standing where it all happened was amazing. The guide's description of events and his in-depth review of the suspects made this an outstanding highlight of our trip...

Our guide knew her stuff, and wasn't one of those overly theatrical guides that sometimes go a bit overboard. It left me feeling intrigued, had not had much interest in the case before but there are so many possible identitied for him you can't help but wonder after this tour. Worth a try!
