I did this walk with about 9 other people. Our guide, Irena was very good. There was a lot of info and interesting facts which I wasn't aware of (I probably should have done a bit of research first). There was one spot where the second victim's location was. It was a bit chilling to know that I was standing... More

Before going to London, our friends had told us this was a must do on our trip. We were pretty disappointed. I think it really depends on what tour guide you get. Our lady was not a great story teller and sort of just walked us around and gave a few facts in each location. I bet it could be... More

We arrived at the Tower Hill Tram (just at the exit of Tower Hill tube) and met up with our guide and the other ten members of the tour. What followed was a fascinating, sometimes gruesome, walking tour of Ripper haunts. One issue, that can't be helped, is that new developments have swallowed up "Old London" and so what you... More

we went on this tour thinking it would be informational and fun.... there were sooo many people who did the tour that we couldn't hear, it wasn't as organized as other walking tours that we had done earlier in the week and the tour guides (there were 2) didn't seem like even wanted to be there and were rather monotonous.......

I had been looking forward to this tour, but I was disappointed. If you have a minimum of knowledge about the Ripper, this tour will bring nothing new. And if you're expecting a taste of the east London atmosphere of bygone days, forget it! The tour is in a business district and none of the murder sites are intact, possibly... More

Felt a little bit cheated in a way, around 40 of us in the group, think the guides name was Steve, wasn't shown anything specific, and even.thou I heard him tell a member of our tour, that it finished back at the tube station where we started, we were just abandoned in a market to find our own way back....

In this tour I learn things about Jack and about London and the history! Molly was amazing and explain all the doubts that we had. If you like the history of Jack you should do it!

I went into this with zero expectation as it was just time to fill with an open evening. Our tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. In order to get the most from the story you need a lesson on the history of the city and what it was like at the time, and I absolutely appreciated the walking history... More
