Jack The Ripper's London and East End Crime Tour - the Mad the Bad the Sad!

This one is a blast from the past. 1888 to be precise. Recreate the spine-chilling story of Jack the Ripper. Set in the Victorian era of the East End of London. Know the legend, break the myth of the sensational Whitechapel murders.
Dare to encounter the squalid and sordid underbelly of London’s notorious East End. Trawl the crime sites of Whitechapel and Wapping districts. Be an eyewitness to the notorious pubs where the ‘working girls’ plied their trade back then. Walk through the once gas-lit alleyways of the 1800’s. Hear about the misdeeds of another despicable 19th-century terminator. Peep into the haunts of the legendary Kray Twins of more recent folklore. Wrap your head around the facts…victims, suspects, gangland leaders, their motives for two centuries of vicious attacks.
Quite a mouthful. Gulp it all down with a drink at an 18th-century tavern. Some sound advice. Come without your squeamish side.

We were in London taking this great tour exactly one year ago today. Miss it - it was excellent. Great service by a very knowledgeable driver. We saw so much more of London than we could have on our own. I can’t wait until we can return and take a different one of their tours. Highly recommend to visitors - take this on your first full day in town, it’s a great way to see the sights while dealing with jet lag.

We hired a car and driver for a private tour to Windsor and were very pleased with the experience. Our driver Mark was excellent, he was very informative with an awesome sense of humor. Mark made us reservations at a wonderful riverside restaurant and stopped so we could share a pint at a quaint local pub. Our kids still talk about this trip with Mark. I would highly recommend hiring Black Cab Heritage for anyone wanting a uniquely British experience.

We hired Black Cab Heritage Tours for what turned out to be the most amazing cab service for our “ancestry tour” thanks to our awesome driver/guide Mark Morris! Mark made our day visiting places I had lived many years ago and then onto cemeteries to pay respects to ancestors. Mark drove to the 4 residential locations on his own time in advance of our journey. Amazing that he would do that! We Highly recommend Black Cab Heritage Tours.

We had a marvelous London tour on an unexpected layover! Mark Kelly was the consummate English gentleman, extremely knowledgeable and gave us a tour we will never forget! We saw the popular sites, along with seeing places the locals enjoy at our request. We even had a lovely fish and chips dinner at a pub on the river as we were famished! This evening was one we will always have fond memories of and will book again if we return to a London! Worth every penny!!!!
