    A huge waste of time and money
    Simona_C, Apr 2021
    The experience was terrible. Nobody replying to the customer service number, nothing happening when trying to connect to Zoom. Both my guests and I wasted 40 minutes in the waiting room. And on top of that I got no answer to the emails asking for help. I am very very disatisfied.
    Ripping Yarns!

    Great at home experience. Enthusiastic and knowledgable host. Lots of fun! Quiz was a nice touch needed faster fingers.
    Tour never happened for me and Viator has not returned my emails/ cal.
    Cindy_S, Jul 2020
    I was unable to sign in to join the tour because I needed a password For meeting which wasn’t sent and we tried to call and email and never got a response back. The Zoom meeting kept saying “waiting for operator to start meeting” but nobody contacted me and I was never given a green light to join meeting. We reached out to try to get a voucher to try this again (as I really wanted to do it), but nobody has reached out.

    My husband and I had a great time, interactive and informative! I love the way the guide had it planned out and displayed the information!
    Misleading "tour" description
    Roland_O, Jun 2020
    The description of the "tour" on the viator webpage is misleading from my point of view. From the description, I expected that someone with a cam and a microphone would really walk through Whitechapel (London) like a tour guide and the audience could watch him in the streets of London from home via PC or tablet. Instead, the "tour guide" was sitting at home in front of his PC and showed a PowerPoint-like presentation about Jack the Ripper. It was certainly entertaining, but as I said, totally not what I had expected when I had read the description of the "virtual tour".
    Unclear Time Zone
    Paula_P, Jun 2020
    We didn’t realize the tour was not done in EST but rather, UK time, so we missed the experience. We did not see this until we went to claim our ticket on the day off our tour. We didn’t receive a clairifying email indicating the time, prior to the time of the tour.

    Great experience. Easy to join in on the virtual tour and very informative. Our tour guide Anna was exceptional. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of history made the virtual tour exciting and fun.
    Very Knowledgeable
    Catherine_T, Jun 2020
    Anna was a wonderful tour guide. She was quite knowledgable. I think the only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because I wasn't there in person. I enjoyed all the pictures and history, I just wanted more of being on the street in person. Tough balance.
    Unfortunate mistake
    Robert_K, May 2020
    Unfortunately, we were given the wrong Zoom link and ended up at the tail end of a tour on a different subject. Several e-mails (no response) and a phone call later, we were given the correct link but couldn't get into the tour because it had already started. We were told that we would be offered another opportunity for the tour and are currently waiting for contact from the host.
    What virtual tour?
    Jesus_F, May 2020
    What experience? I tried unsuccessfully twice to connect via zoom and never was able to take the tour. Ah, but they charged for it!! I am still waiting for a response to my claim.
    Response from Host, May 2020
    First and foremost, we apologise profusely for this error, we are trying our best to roll out a product that can be both affordable and entertaining in this difficult time. Dealing with technology can be a nightmare, but we are always and i promise you this striving to learn more and improve whilst using a Medium we have become accustomed to recently. We would love to have opportunity to put this right and give you a complimentary tour to prove to you that the work we are doing here is thought out and entertaining. To do this please email me personally- to the attention of Frankie Apologies once again
    wrong link sent
    Fiona_K, May 2020
    They sent the wrong link to a virtual show already taking place. There was no other way to join the live link (other than pay again!). So I can only complain through this feedback.
    Response from Host, May 2020
    Ah we are so sorry about this. I wont beat about the bush, working with technology can some times be a trial, but I assure you it was a teething problem on this occasion and by no means represents the ethos of the company and the work we strive to do here. To put this right, we would love the opportunity to prove this to you by offering you a complimentary virtual tour to claim this simply email to the attention of Frankie
    Susan_M, Apr 2020
    I had a terrible fact no experience at all as I could not access the link. I got on to the link and it said that it would start soon, wait for the host. That never happened. The message didn't change and the host never appeared. I waited for over two hours. My daughter had had a great experience and recommended it to me. I am so sorry that I couldn't get the same experience that she had.
    Response from Host, May 2020
    Ah first and foremost , we apologise profusely for this. I promise you this will have been a teething problem and by no means represents any of the work we have put in to develop these products. Technology can be a real pain at times and we can only put this experience down to that. To rectify we would love the opportunity to offer you a complimentary tour so that we can deliver a 5 star tour you paid for. To do this please email and I will sort this for you personally
    Entertaining & Infomative Online Tour
    Craig_M, Apr 2020
    Jack was an outstanding guide who was both entertaining and informative. I learned a great deal about the Ripper murders and the parade of suspects that have emerged over the years. I would highly recommend this tour to other 'Ripperologists'
