I did a number of London Walks tours and this was one of the most interesting walks I went on while in London. The guide was someone who had either a history or criminology background, which made it so engaging for me because it was factual, theoretical and got into the guts of what was happening in the East End...

Great walking tour with an absolutely AMAZING guide! Fun, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable on many things besides just the Ripper. I went with my brother in law and my daughter...we all loved it! You must go at night for full effect. There are no shortage of Ripper Tours...be sure to go with London Walks.

We had a very good tourguide who was easy to hear and understand - and he told us much about London 125 years ago in a very interesting way - not all about Jack the Ripper - but about life. Good.

My girlfriend had googled the best tour and it was true, The London Walk Jack the Ripper tour held by guide Rex was just Fantastic, you got a glimpse of the environment and feeling in East London in 1888, super proffessional guide told the story with big enthusiasm and great drama, we really got the feeling how life must have...

We chose to do the tour on a dark evening to make it feel more real. The guide was very knowledgable and really knew his stuff. I must admit we didn't know much about him other than his name and what he did but we thoroughly enjoyed it learning about how and when it all happened and possible conspiracy theories.... More

There was a very large group of people gathered outside Tower Hill Tube on the night we visited but then the group was split into two. Our guide was Steve and he was very interesting and knowledgable and obviously knew his stuff. Obviously some of the area has changed dramatically over the years but parts of the tour took us...

Interesting tour round the 5 murder sites and facts about the 5 victims. Interesting facts about the buildings how they used to be and many of them how they are now

Facinating tour by a guide who clearly knew the subject inside out The only criticism I could make is that on occasion the guide was distracted by things happening around and it would have been better had we visited all the locations where the murders took place ( re developments permitting) rather than just being told where they happened The...

Be sure to tour with London Walks. There were other tours happening at the same time, but their laughter and sensationalism were disturbing, given the terrible plight of the women at the time. We were given a good overall feel for the way of life during the Ripper's era and found ourselves sympathetic to the untenable and vulnerable situations that... More

Walking around certain parts of London, at night, with a very knowledgeable Jack the Ripper guide. Eerie? you bet, but it was great! Our guide, Richard #3 painted a very precise picture of what and how London was during this time, even walked us to a couple of areas where the victims were found. I would definitely take another London... More
