Traveller Tips

While actual photos of victims were shared, the tour participants were always notified of the upcoming content so they could choose to avoid looking at the photos and Ripper-Vision if they wanted.
Excellent walking tour with a very well informed charismatic guide and the 'Ripper Vision' is a nice idea giving you a better insight into how the area looked when the crimes took place.

Best Tour in London
Pati_F, June 2023
The tour was awesome! Allen our tour guide was very informative, and jovial! He kept us all very intrigued in the history of Jack. Enjoyed his projector - it added to the tour to see pictures of the victims and what the streets looked like in 1888.
Good experience
Christine_F, June 2023
The now and then explanation of the architecture/addresses was professionally explained. Our guide’s enthusiasm held the large group together very well. We didn’t give the review 5 stars as the group size was quite large..hd been expecting a group of say 20-25 people. This should not have been the guides fault.
Running thru London
Matt_M, June 2023
This tour is more of a jog thru London instead of a tour. The guide was running from place to place and the group was really spread. There are multiple groups these guys schedule so the faster they go, the more groups they get. It was strange that multiple groups were everywhere telling the same story so didn’t seem like the spots were very accurate. Also there were only a couple of slides shown because of the daylight on the 730 tour. Not a good experience.
Response from Host, June 2023
I’m sorry to read this , however your review is very inaccurate. We do not run multiple tours. We run a single tour every night at 7.30pm and on Saturday and Sunday we have a 5pm tour aswell. The tour lasts 1 hour and 45 mins. A simple internet check will confirm all of the above. We walk at a normal pace exploring the murder sites and points of interest. We do state on our website that the tour may not be suitable for those who have difficulty walking or need assistance. We do try to and accommodate everyone 99% of the time. Should you have difficulty walking then please point this out to the guide before the tour starts. As for other tour groups standing in different places, we are glad you mentioned this. Our tour is the only ripper tour in london to be run by actual Ripperologists. Guides who have published books and appeared on numerous documentaries. This means you will be standing in the correct place every time you come on our tour. If you booked with another tour company you could be standing anywhere just listening to a story from a Wikipedia. We like to think of our tour as the real crime scene investigation tour. This is one of the reasons we are consistently voted number 1 Ripper tour in london. We hope you will return and give us a second chance. If you contact me I will get a tour booked in for you. Thanks Richard
It wasn’t as brilliant as I had hoped.
Ed_P, June 2023
A lot of walking…many of the sites of the actual murders don’t exist anymore so where the tour goes are often approximate locations. Didn’t seem logically arranged, and the Ripper Vision is an attempt to set it’s offerings as something different from other Jack the Ripper tours, but they are little more than slides using buildings as a projector screen.
Tom_B, June 2023
Tour guide was great and very knowledgable. Was exciting and learned a lot! Would recommend to anyone who’s interested!
Great tour

Know What You’re Getting
Brandy_H, June 2023
Our guide was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable, so he’s a delight. What I didn’t realize was that this tour was focused on the lives of the victims and less on the story of the killer. No disrespect to them, and our guide did well in sharing their stories, it just wasn’t what we thought we were getting. Additionally, in the summer, because the sun sets so late, Ripper Vision is reduced to prints of pictures in a notebook shown to the group. I expect it may be better in the winter months.
More than Jack…
Melissa_S, June 2023
Loved this tour! Appreciated all of the history provided along with the humor that our guide Nick brought to it. Our group greatly appreciated learning about the women who had lost their identities through being victims of the crimes instead of glorifying the killer. Highly recommend Nick as a guide!!
Jack the Ripper anno 2023
Jens_G, June 2023
What I liked the most was when we walked down Brick street like going back in time. Even ithough its more like gointg back to England in the 70ies . London has changed so much since Jack the Ripper that it is difficult to get a real feeling of the time and place. I became a bit disappointed when we started out because you advetise with a real old setting so I thought that it was to be held in a warehouse with a scenery from back then.

Great tour
Jeremy_V, June 2023
This tour was very good, Jamie did an awesome job!! It was very informative and a interesting part of history.
Prepare To Walk Many Whitechapel Streets!
Meg_V, June 2023
The history Whitechapel & murders were brought into our century with Mick's presentation. He was animated & interesting. The Ripper Vision technology was oversold & it under delivered. He used the hand projector once & it showed uninteresting things. I am sure this tour would be more entertaining later in the year when dark & with a smaller group. It just wasn't what I expected.
Knowledge of tour guide excellent
gordon_S, June 2023
Our tour guide mickl, was great. His knowledge was fantastic. He was totally researched on the subject of jack the ripper murders. Knowledge of the White Chapel area at the time of murders was fantastic.
