An absolute must. Dickie, carries enough charm and knowledge to bring notorious serial killer, Jack The Ripper, alive, as he recounts the macabre murders that plagued White Chapel. Walk down the streets that The Ripper stalked. See exact locations where victims were found. A historical tale indeed, however Dickie provides enough comedic innuendo to liven the tour. Highly recommended. -J.V. Houston, Tx

We had Ken as our Ripper Tour guide who is a Royal Yeoman at the Tower of London. He was very knowledgeable & knew his stuff. He kept us entertained & informed about the horrendous crimes of Jack the Ripper. Ken also had excellent local knowledge of the area & the history.

Good walking pace, a very enjoyable tour with lots of pictures to help you imagine what life was like in 1888. Ken also got us to profile the Ripper & narrow done the many suspects. Great evening out. Would highly recommend it. Thank you!

This tour is so good,I've done it twice and would go again!!! The guides are all yeomen of the guard and really know their stuff. The groups are small allowing a banter and participation with the guides who all seem to have an excellent sense of humour. Well worth the £8 charge which you only pay if you enjoy the tour...so far I have not seen anyone leave without paying. An absolute must do

Our guide was Barney, and he was great. Comical, but very knowledgeable. He told us at the start that we wouldn't have to pay if we didn't enjoy it, but we gave extra, we enjoyed it so much! It's quite a walk, and my dad struggled a little, so beware if you have walking difficulties. We were staying at the HIlton Double Tree round the corner from Tower Hill tube so it was the perfect location for us to join the tour at 6.30. Loved it!

Back last night from a few days in London where one of the highlights was the Ripper tour which we took on Sunday night. Our guide was Jimmy, one of the yeoman warders from the Tower of London. We found the tour to be fascinating and educational, even though we would consider ourselves already fairly familiar with the Jack the Ripper story. Jimmy was informative, animated and entertaining, and his storytelling evoked an eerie atmosphere as we wandered the streets of Whitechapel in the steps of the Ripper. All in all a very entertaining couple of hours or so and well worth the £8 fee which you only hand over at the end of the tour if you are completely happy to because you have enjoyed it. You really can't say fairer than that!
