Spooktacular Jack the Ripper tour!!

5 out of 5

I went on the Jack the Ripper walking tour expecting it to be a fairly basic, entertaining 2 hours, but my expectations were certainly exceeded!! Our tour guide Nathan was so charming, funny and friendly; answering all our questions and going the extra mile to make sure we all had a fun time! The tour itself was quite information heavy but Nathan brought life to all the stories and the gory stories sent shivers down my spine!! Would definitely recommend this tour to families, tourists and London locals! Nathan was an amazing guide and it was a brilliant spooooky evening well spent.

Jack the Ripper with Ed

5 out of 5

We had the pleasure of having Ed take around the various focal points of East London related to the Jack the Ripper Events of 1888. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had him, as we turned up and it was raining, and continued to do so for the entirety of the tour, but you would not have realised, as it was such an enjoyable experience. Ed was knowledgeable, and was able to balance comedy with the volume of information he gave at each location. Thankyou Ed for a great tour!
