We were met by Sam our tour guide, Sam had a wealth of information to impart, he certainly is a complete enthusiast about Jack the Ripper, the information was very interesting and good to visit the area where the murders happened. My only complaint is that the tour was far too long, 3 hours instead of 1.5 hours.

Our tour guide was a gentleman named Sam, dressed very eccentric and bubbling with personality. We had just come from the museum which was a huge disappointment and so we had high hopes for the Ripper tour. Sam started the tour by explaining that he intended to write three books and make a documentary and that any further tips would... More

As we were in London for a few days we decided to do the Jack the Ripper walking tour, which a friend had recommended to us. This tour starts outside the Tower Hill tube station at 7.30pm every night - just look for a crowd of people gathering around - opposite the food truck stall. You don't need to book... More

I went with a friend of mine in January. Jo, our guide, was very cool, it was easy to see that she likes what she's doing. I already knew a lot of things about Jack the Ripper but I found it pretty cool to walk on the very same streets he walked. The only thing that I would change is... More

A must do activity. Who would think of leaving London without venturing out into the night to walk the steps of the infamous Jack? Adam was our Thursday guide and he was incredible. He makes you feel like you are in the moment. Not too long a walk but it does require walking. A good bargain for the price and... More

The Jack the ripper Tour was informative and interesting but, the walking element of it was not necessary in my mind. We did the tour in the dark and it was just sort of strange standing in allies while our very knowledgeable guide told us about jack the ripper and augmented his talk by passing around a notebook with rather...

The guides were interesting and theatrical, engaged with the crowd. However I feel like there was not a lot said that I didn't already know, and the tour lacked atmosphere. Im not sure what I had expected, but I felt a little disappointed.

Did the walk with Adam as our guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny, friendly and easy to hear. The last point was key as there were other tours we ran into on the walk and you could hear a few struggling to speak loud enough. It was an easy walk and the time flew by. A nice touch was Adam...

We took the 19:30 tour. There were a lot of people even in the drizzly weather. The guide took our £10 fee and then offered a two sided leaflet about the area for a further £1, which I thought was a not on. We were split into two groups and set off 20min late. The walk took us around the... More
