“Can't imagine a better Ripper tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I chose this Jack the Ripper tour because of the positive reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The "RipperVision" explores each location while John, our narrator for the tour, explains in vivid detail the facts of each scene. There is a great "interactive" experience too, making you feel like you're back in 1888. John was very knowledgable in Ripper lore and is an experienced Ripper tour guide. Choose this tour!

“Informative and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Absolutely fantastic. Read one of the 3* reviews below from the lady who wants theatrics. Not for me. I pay my money to learn, not to watch some guy show off. Our guide, Richard, was fantastic (if you can get past the fact he looks like Chris Moyles!) He was very informative and really set the scene of what it was like in Ripper's era. Wasn't expecting much from the RipperVision, but it really added to the atmosphere and helped picture the scene with some very clever photo editing. Would go again and have been recommending to friends since.

“A thoroughly enjoyable evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I attented this tour after reading the favourable reviews on this site. The tour commences at 7.30pm although I would recommend you arrive at least 10 minutes early. Due to problems with my travel card ticket my friend and I arrived slighly late at aldgate station and thought we had missed the group, however, fortunately for us an employee of the tour came back to the meeting point to check for any late arrivals. So whatever you do don't leave if you arrive slighly late, someone will come back to collect you. The tour itself was great and the images projected on to the walls were an added bonus which served to immerse you in the story and imagine london back in the late 19th century. If you go on one jack the ripper tour whilst in london this should be it!
