We went on this tour on a cold December mid-week evening and so, the group was nice and small. Giles gave a very interesting and informative talk about Jack the Ripper around London's East End. The tour was just as much about Victorian East London in the late 1800s as Jack the Ripper, which was a bonus. London has changed significantly since the time of Jack the Ripper and although what were originally deprived and intimidating sites now replaced with hip restaurants and bars, Giles did a great job of setting the scene and building a picture of Jack the Ripper's killing spree. I'd recommend this tour.
Our tour guide was Alan and he was great made the cold night enjoyable would definitely recommends this walking tour had an great time thank you
Highly recommend! If you have the opportunity to request the tour guide Giles, please do so. He was hilarious, knowledgeable and absolutely thoroughly versed in all things Jack the Ripper. It was freezing on our tour but he was so engrossing I barely felt it. This tour is eerie, fascinating, and full of fun interesting facts and theories I've never heard before.
Guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable about not only Jack the Ripper but the entire Whitechapel and City of London area. Had a really good time learning about the area and how it has changed and how it has not changed in many ways.
Loved our guide, he was knowledgeable and friendly, brought London of olde alive!
We had such a great time with Charles! Also known as Giles to my sister and Nigel to my cousin as we all heard a different name but I'm betting on Charles. Not only was the walking tour informative and entertaining but Charles had a great way of lightening the mood of such a serious topic and engaging the tour group with demonstrations and thought provoking questions. We also had a blast learning about the history of London during that time, which Charles used to put the subject matter into perspective. You will not be disappointed with Charles' tour, highly recommended!
Tour was fantastic. Tour guide was great. Joe Know all the stories and twists to the case.
You get to walk the actual streets where the murders took place...at night!
Worth the time and
Only thing missing was the London Fog :
From the 800 year old creepy St. Boldoph's church to the tiny backstreet endearing nicknamed sht alley this tour was a real trek through time. Tales of life in White Chapel before it was electrified really set the stage for the grim crime wave. I particularly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of Poor House living. Book this tour if you like a mix of gritty history and spooky stories.
We enjoyed this a lot. We only had a small group so it was easy to hear our guide who was very knowledgable and enthusiastic despite the small group. Good stuff.
Joe was a great guide, spun out the facts and the not-so-facts in a clear and humorous way. He was happy to spend a little extra time with us and all our silly questions. Definitely good for those who don't know much about JTR and Old London.
Was an entertaining tour. Joe was good-natured and full of interesting facts. Was a good way to spend a few early evening hours. My 18 year old daughter enjoyed, too.
Joe, our guide is a very knowledgeable and caring gentleman, we had a great and enjoyable time. Strongly recommended.
This tour is great! The guide gives detailed information throughout the tour and you hear about the victims, suspected identity of Jack The Ripper and gruesome details of the murders along with timelines for the murders. Our tour lasted about an hour and a half so wrap up warm and wear comfy shoes!
Great Tour. Sarah was very knowledgeable and informative. Definately recommend
Sarah is fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Comfortable pace tour and very insightful of the crimes.
Wonderful! Guide was entertaining, knowledgable and fun!! Couldn't have asked for more! Meetup location very easy to find and the 2 hours flew past!!!
I enjoyed that this tour was more oriented to historical facts, and did not include cheesy period costumes or over-the-top drama. Our tour guide did a great job creating a picture of Whitechapel in 1888, and showed us areas that still retain original buildings from the era (in addition to the spots that are pertinent to the story of Jack the Ripper). Sarah, our tour guide, was also very friendly and funny. I would recommend this tour to visitors.
Great tour. Our tour leader was very entertaining and informative. He really made you imagine what it would have been like in the 1800s
We were also shown some of the places the victims were found and the pubs they used to frequent. The two hour tour flew by and I wish it went for longer. Highly recommended
