Thanks very much for your review of our Jack the Ripper tour .

I was the guide for your tour , so its nice to know i've still got it after all these years .

I started off researching the Jack the Ripper murders in 1988 at the age of 12 during the 100th anniversary . All the new books , documentarys and movies were emerging at that time , so it was a good information era for budding enthusiasts.

Several years later and many a long day at the public records office i amassed quite a collection on the subject but never really did anything with it until 4 years ago when i decided the time was right to start a modern , exciting jack the Ripper tour .

This would be the first time london had seen a ripper tour which delivered only the known facts , eye witness statements and police reports to bring you the definitive story .

So im really glad you loved the tour and i hope you spread the word to family and friends to ask for rippervision.

Thanks

We were a party of 4 adults and 2 teenage boys. All enjoyed it. The tour guide was a capable and eloquent young women. She did not do it in costume as it seems some guides do, but it was a hot summer's day and I don't think it would have added anything. In fact I liked the way our guide did not turn it in to a pantomime and had empathy for the working women of the East-end.

With so many other ripper tours aiming for the same spots we had to move a couple of time to avoid those, but that was fine.

I would have given this an excellent, but I think there are two things which could be better:

1. A clearer idea where to met. Aldgate East station was closed on the day so many were confused where Exit 3 was (clue - if you can see another exit across the road - you are at the wrong one)

2. Tipping at the end. Yes, it is quite customary for guides to say they accept tips and this was done with humorous acknowledgment that this can be awkward. The question is then, why do it? Why no charge more on the tickets, which were excellent value anyway, and leave all on a high?

Anyway, I would recommend this tour.

Thanks for your review of our jack the Ripper tour .

Its always good to hear from people who actually live and work in the east end of london. We have had many local office parties who have always wanted to go on one and they've chose us everytime.

The exits to Aldgate east station can be tricky if you arrive on foot and so we state on our website and booking sheet to meet outside the front door of the Whitechapel Art gallery as a landmark .

Our price remains £9 even though people in the past have stated it should be much more . This offers probably the best value for money in London for a night out.

If you think the price should be more then certainly throw a tip to your guide , but this is purely at your own discretion .

Thanks

I was taken on this tour by a cousin who is local to London. I found the tour incredibly interesting, both in regards to the gory details of ripper history, but also the history of the East End. The guide took the time to not only tell us about the Ripper and his victims, but in 'setting the scene' showed how the area had changed and evolved. Even my cousin who has lived in London for the past 20 years found the tour to be interesting and informative.

Greg, the tour guide, was passionate about his work and made a 2 hour(ish) tour seem like half an hour. The way he spoke made you feel as though you really could be wandering the East End at the time. I would recommend this tour (and this guide in particular) for almost anyone. Be aware that parts are quite gory (as they should be!), so this is probably not a tour for children under 12 (especially if you are going during winter when it is dark...).

I can see how the tour would be good no matter who runs it, but I cannot suggest trying to get on a tour with Greg enough, he is a more than competent, interesting tour guide.

There are so many jack the ripper tours out there, all telling the same story, but what makes this one the best is the guide. He who really gets into the part, we loved how he was dressed and his great hat, you could tell he was really passionate about the jack the ripper mystery. The ripper vision is cool which no other tours had and we saw tons of other tours out while we were walking around the city. The tour starts at 7:30p but I think it could start later during the summer months since it doesn't get dark until 10:30ish and the darker it is the better you can see the ripper vision.
