The tour contained a lot of information about the evolution of the murders and the investigation. Our guide had an acting background and was able to confidently present the information in an engaging way. Only issue is the two hours outside in December can be a little uncomfortable.

I would recommend to anyone headed to the UK soon to hit these guys up, but considering what's going on around the world at the moment, just keep these guys in the back of your mind if you are planning a Trip to the UK after everything has settled. Our tour guide Paul was very nice and knew his stuff. He even carried pictures with him to show the group. I actually learned some things about not only Jack the Ripper, which fascinates me, but history in London, specifically Whitechapel. Unfortunately for me, I had injured myself the second day we were there, and I had trouble keeping up with the group, but Paul was very kind to have waited for me to limp my way over to them. He even asked if everything was alright after the tour, which shows just how well Paul is at this job. If you have a chance book with Paul absolutely. Big thanks to him for making the tour wonderful. It's also very eerie when he describes the area and you stand there thinking, this is where Jack got them.

We greatly enjoyed the “virtual” London Walks Jack the Ripper Tour! Richard Walker is a compelling storyteller and a font of knowledge about the seedy side of life in poverty-ridden East London in the late Nineteenth Century, of the victims, and of the mysteries that surround their murders even to this date. With photos, street-videos, illustrations and maps, Richard made us feel as if we were right there on the scene, rather than sitting in the comfort of our home in the US. Another great London Walks virtual tour!

Simon led our tour of the Jack the Ripper sites and we loved his great storytelling and sense of humor. He was very knowledgable about the facts and presented them in a very entertaining manner. The tour lasted a bit over two hours on a busy Thursday night. He kept things moving and did not spare the gory details. All in all a very wonderful tour with keen insight. Thank you Simon for an unforgettable evening.

Steven, our guide, was absolutely brilliant: funny, informative, great at engaging his listeners- it was as much a theatrical performance as it was an educational walking tour. We were a pretty big crowd, but he handled the large number of tour goers expertly; I never felt like I was missing something. Really informative tour, not just about the details of the Ripper case, but also about the East End in the 19th Century. My husband, who has wanted to do this tour for YEARS, said it fulfilled all his expectations. I love London Walks; I've done a few different walks and have never been disappointed.

Jeremy made this tour immensely intriguing and engaging. He was super charismatic and really fun. The tour was very interesting and even on a chilly windy afternoon it was completely worth the money and time. He even stayed after the tour to tell us about good pubs and food places in the area, as well as the nearest bus and train stations. Overall, he was an amazing tour guide, 10/10 recommend.

Our guide Simon was fantastic. Funny, knowledgeable, personable. He seamlessly kept tabs on everyone in the group both to include them and to ensure us tourists didn't get lost during the walk. He easily broke out in German to better explain the story to a group. The sights and story are interesting but it's the guide who truly brings it to life. Cannot recommend him enough.

Our tour guide was Simon. He did a great job on the tour. He not only told the story around the victims and suspects, but he also did a great job describing what London was like for the poor at that time. He handled the gruesome subject matter with drama and respect for the victims and their circumstances, with a bit a dry humor thrown in. Great job, Simon.

Our guide Oliver immersed us in 1888 and painted a clear picture about living conditions in Whitechapel during this period. He narrates with fervour, allowing the audience to think along with him about the various theories surrounding the identity of Jack the Ripper.
I highly recommend this tour! And certainly also our enthusiastic guide Oliver!

Brilliant evening full of fascinating facts. Jeremy, our tour guide, was absolutely brilliant. He knew his facts very well and was extremely engaging with us all. The walk itself wasn’t too fast so everybody could keep up and there was only a short distance between every stop where Jeremy would explain why we were stopped in a clear and easy to hear voice. I would definitely recommend this tour.
