Excellent walking tour.
I learned so much more. The tour guide was awesome.
Excellent tour!!! Our tour guide was amazing. We learned a lot about the true history of the area and the time of Jack the Ripper. Very well done. I would recommend it to anyone.
The tour was informative and walking the streets of The Ripper was thrilling. Our guide gave us a little extra with a free fish and chips stop! TheNight time tour let your imagination wander to the past. Highly recommend!
This was a great tour!! Killer fish and chips!! Once I got home I had to watch all the Jack the Ripper movies, and tv shows I could!!
This tour was amazing!
We were very disappointed in this trip after reading the reviews. We found our guide John to be brusque and the tour felt rushed. There were many times we couldnt hear him when he was talking and then he rushed off to the next spot leaving a trail of bemused tourists. One tourist actually left the tour halfway through, he was clearly that unimpressed! We were collected from our hotel, the Strand Palace to begin the tour. The tour began immediately with John pointing out the supposedly haunted Drury Lane theatre from a side view on the coach. We could barely see it. Everywhere we went we were given a blurted out explanation of where we were, but as mentioned previously without a microphone it was nigh on impossible to hear John if we werent stood right next to him. It was very frustrating. The fish and chip stop was unnecessary and didnt justify the time taken out of the tour in my opinion, although it was very tasty. If this is the reason for the tour being much more expensive than others on offer, I would suggest to lose the snack and get on with the tour. At one point John grunted Wheres my driver? when the coach wasnt parked up where he expected it to be. At the end of our tour we were expecting to be dropped off at The Strand Palace but instead we were dropped off a short walk away. We felt very much that we were being disposed of as quickly as possible. Based on our experience from which I have very little memory of the actual talks, I can not recommend this trip.
Our tour guide John was great. He is a very good storyteller and made the whole tour alive.
However, I selected this tour rather of other Jack the Ripper tour at lower price is because the haunted theater at Drury Lane is included.
On that night, we only got to hear the story from the tour guide instead of seeing the theater ourselves. Only the theater location was pointed out from our coach which was located at the back of the building we passed by. I expected more about this theater from the tour.
We couldn't wait to go on this tour but that got spoiled quickly as our tour guide was extremely rude. His name was John. My son was a little motion sick from the bus ride and the tour guide basically kicked us off the tour in the middle of England and told us he couldn't let my son back on the bus if he was motion sick because the passenger wouldn't like it. I luckily found an Uber to get us back to our hotel. DONT BOOK THIS TOUR.
We would not recommend this tour. Our guide talked a lot but said little of substance and really didn't provide perspective on the murders till the end of the tour on the way back to our drop off point. If we could we have left in the middle we would have done so. We spent more time talking about Fish and Chips and waiting for them than we did learning about Jack the Ripper.
