My husband and I did a Jack the Ripper tour with the very knowledgeable and accomplished guide, Lindsay. At the time I booked it, I didn't know it was a very special day in Ripper history, the 130th anniversary of the first murder! We were one person with prior familiarity of the murders and one without and it turned out to be an enjoyable experience for both of us.

Great tour to go on for a cold fall/winter night. Be prepared to walk through the back alleys of East London as you go to the different sites where victims of Jack the Ripper wee found. My guide, Angie, was awesome. From her dress up to her dramatic retelling of the events, she made the tour come alive.

This would be by far the most informed tour you could take, as this guy has authored not one, but two books on the subject and had a number of photos to show the crowd, some of which were gained through a personal link and not seen on any other tour or in any other book out there. Besides, he was very entertaining. Well worth the ticket.

We had discussed the idea of doing a Ripper tour for a while and after admittedly very little research, booked through Discovery Tours. I'm so glad that we did. Our tour guide John was both informative and engaging and made the 2 hour tour very entertaining. John was extremely knowledgeable and obviously had a passion for the subject. He absolutely made the tour. With tickets at £10 a person it was great value and an interesting way to spend a Saturday night. Would highly recommend.

John was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about the topic. He spoke clearly and answered all the questions fired at him with good detail. There were a number of people in this walking tour and at times it was hard to hear over the traffic noise. It was s fairly miserable night, constant drizzle, which sort of added to the atmosphere. The 2 hours went quickly. The places visited were busy with lots of other Ripper tours so it got a little crowded in some locations. It was an entertaining night for £10.
