“Great, worthwhile tour!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

My friends and I really enjoyed this tour on a recent trip to London. Not only did it enlighten us about the awful murders in the late 19th century, but it also lit a spotlight on other history in the area, such as the church that survived WWII and the very cool tidbit on “Nocturn Alley” from the Harry Potter series.

This is a great tour even for the faint of heart because it had a comical side as well. Our tour guide, Jonny, who was knowledgeable about the subject, did such an excellent job entertaining us and keeping us engaged in the information that he was giving us. But most importantly he reminded us that we should focus more on the victims of those brutal murders and not on the one who committed them, which is now how we see it.

Thanks for a lovely time!

Hello mate, thanks for the fantastic review, I put my heart and soul into the tours so I am glad to see that it comes across. Working in the minefield that is the Jack the Ripper tour industry and the open police case I try to stick to the facts and keep them fresh for every tour. Our ripper vision is one of a kind with many of the images being one of a kinds and exclusive to our Jack the Ripper tour. I hope to see you again soon. Johnny

“Really worth doing”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

I went on this tour last night and thought it was excellent. The tour guide came dressed as a Victorian Police Officer and was very engaging.

I didn't really know what they meant when they said they had "Ripper-Vision" on the website, but really its a handheld projector with historical pictures that really do add to the tour. Where areas had changed our guide could project onto a wall and show us what it used to look like.

As we went round we saw other guides who weren't dressed up and didn't have the benefit of the projector: their tours didn't look as good.

On a general note, there are a lot more Victorian Streets in Whitechapel than you might expect. Obviously some things were destroyed by enemy action in WWII but a lot remains. And the fact these streets are dimly lit and quiet really adds to the atmosphere.

I would recommend this tour.

“Great Tour, Ripper Vision a MUST”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We did this tour the first weekend in London and thought it was really good. Our friend had done a tour without Ripper Vision and I think you really miss out. By seeing actual photos from crime scene and victims, it really adds to the authenticity of the tour since you know you're exactly where the events took place.

My only critique is that our guide, Mick, talked realllllllllllly fast at times. I'm a fast talker as well and it was tough to keep up at times. This was mainly an issue in the beginning as he got to a normal speed around halfway through.

Highly recommend the tour though!

“Had a great time, sorry for leaving early!!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

My two friends and I had a great time on our tour led by Jonny. We all agree we learnt a lot, and it was entertaining too. We were disappointed that we had to leave a bit early before the end due to having a coach to catch! The website had advertised it taking 1hr 45 minutes, but we left at the 2 hr mark in a bit of a rush. We wanted Jonny to know that we didn't leave out of choice, but necessity! Sorry we missed the end. Thanks for a great tour! :)

“A Fab Tour!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

We booked this tour on the internet and we had an excellent time. Our very passionate guide Ricky told and showed us the story of Jack the Ripper and his victims. Impressive and full of shocking, horrific details. We recommend this tour, you won't be disappointed!
