Rachel was a fantastic tour guide and took us places we would never have gone on our own. It was cold but we kept moving and were fairly comfortable.

This tour is an excellent way to learn or continue to learn about the Jack the Ripper mystique. Our guide was Lindsay and she is without question and authority on the topic. She was passionate and kept the tour interesting through enthusiastic interaction. She did a good job at making sure everyone was able to hear her at every stop.... More

Our guide was very up on his Ripper facts. He took us through the very streets where the murders took place. At each stop he told us facts about the story with names and back stories of those who were the victims. It was interesting to find out (as is in many cases) that our general knowledge beforehand is based... More

This was an awesome tour. Our tour guide Alan took us through the very same alleys and streets where Jack the Ripper committed his various murders. He was very articulate and spoke clearly so everyone could hear him. Pictures of the victims and housing were passed around at each stop, along with explanation of what London was like back in...

Our guide was a little full of himself, yes he's written a book, but he was kinda rude when answering questions. He also didn't offer any insight on who he thinks Jack the Ripper was, or add facts about his research. I understand it's an unsolved mystery, but if I just going to get cold hard facts, I'm not interested... More

I went on this tour with my mother and we both enjoyed it very much! The tour was just over 2 hours long, but with our super friendly and extremely funny guide that was very knowledgeable on the subject this wasn't a problem. I personally knew almost nothing about Jack the Ripper and I feel very informed after the tour... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
