The tour was really good! Our guide was very nice and he knew his stuff about Jack the Ripper. The “Rippervision” was a great addition to the guide’s presentation. He showed what old buildings looked like and he also showed some mortuary pictures of the victims. It helped bring things into perspective that we were talking about people.
My only complaint is that our group was somewhat large and he was hard to hear because of our large group, car traffic (at one stop), and it was raining. Maybe if they capped the number of people closer to 20, it would have been easier to get closer.
Overall, I would recommend the tour.
We took this tour on our first night in London. It exceeded our expectations. Our guide was excellent and gave us insight into the historical life and times in London during which these awful, unsolved crimes were committed. We learned a lot more than we anticipated and had an opportunity to walk around and explore old, historical areas of London that we likely would not have visited otherwise. Our local guide presented the information on the Jack the Ripper murders in a respectful, sensitive way and this was not a ghoulish tour. 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. We would recommend this tour to adults and teens.
My family and I absolutely loved this tour as we are into "whodunit" type mysteries and I particularly like to explore the shadow side of men. Please do yourself a favor and ask for "Mick" by name! Not only did he know every single piece of info currently available about Jack the Ripper, he knew so much more that you could not find anywhere. He also talked to each of us individually and when he ascertained where we were from, he could rattle off any/all serial killers that were particular to that area. He was amazing and quite funny, too. Very enjoyable evening. Plus he pointed us to Efes at the close of the tour, the best Turkish restaurant we have ever been to in our lives.
My friend and I spent the weekend of the 10.08.19 in London and decided as a treat to take this tour. We had our 15 year old daughters with us. We knew the history of Jack the Ripper and expected graphic and gruesome content. However the guide called Johnny was totally inappropriate and repeatedly referred to women’s reproductive organs in a very disrespectful and indecent manner. We were not the only people to find this offensive. I would estimate that half the tour left the group due to his vile and disgusting comments, it appeared he did not have much respect for women. I have previously been on ghost tours which have been fun and educational, this was neither. I would not recommend this tour to anyone.
