Only the 2 of us on the tour but we really enjoyed it and Joe was a chatty, interesting, knowledgeable guide. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in the Ripper story and exploring the East End of London.

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first, especially as I had friends coming from way out of London to visit. Neednt have worried though, as this actually turned out to be a really interesting (and also downright scary) evening out.

I came with a small group of friends as we were at a loose end and have to say it was great to try something different. Gorey in places but interesting throughout

my husband absolutely loves this creepy lark and this company didn't fail to impress. it was a bit cold on the night which slightly spoiled it for us, but other than that this was a really great night and brilliantly value for money considering all the insight you get!

i've never really enjoyed horror movies or anything like that but i really loved the jack the ripper tales, hence coming on the tour. we'd only just moved to london when we went so it was an eerie introduction to the city at that. absolutely loved the authenticity and now know more than ever about the horrid man, thanks guys!

As a bit of a thrill seeker, this was definitely the event for me! My boyfriend was absolutely terrified (sorry Tom) but wow this was one of the most exhilarating experiences ever - really well organised tour and our guide really made it.

I booked this having read both reviews on design my night and elsewhere and have to say that all 5-star reviews are justified. Everything is covered in very close detail, it's capitaviting from start to finish and tour guides are both knowledgable and friendly. Would highly recommend for a fun (and pretty terrifying) day out

Wow I found this absolutely horrifying but that has to be a testament to the tour. It was really well put together, and literally gave me shivers. Really great experience, (tip: go with someone you're close to so you don't look cray when you freak out!)

Agree with 'yantogen' below, I'm always looking for something alternative and this definitely ticks the boxes. Genuinely chilling, innovative and the tour guide really knew his stuff. A fun and different experience in London
11 Feb 2015 by stevendavis91

never done one of these and felt like a bit of a tourist but really glad we both plucked up the courage. being from norway this is a big london story for us to hear to it was really interesting to get a true taste of it too!

My boyfriend thought this would be a 'laugh' so I agreed to go along. Whilst being absolutely terrified, this was actually a really good tour and the guide was really informative. Creepy stuff nevertheless tho
06 Feb 2015 by kellymay

was having trouble finding something to do in the evening that wasn't just going to the pub until this came up. really interesting and the guide will answer literally anything, some of the roads were a tad bit too much on the beat but it was still such a thrill nonetheless!
06 Feb 2015 by yantogen

Probably one of the most terrfying experiences of my life. It doesn't take much to scare me admittedly, but this was a really haunting and the guide was really good
05 Feb 2015 by sallydoll

Guide made it thoroughly interesting and enjoyable. I love a bit of gore, so this was right up my alley. Loved the pictures and back stories too. Overall, would recommend it!
18 Jan 2015 by Z0idberg

I'm pretty boring and unimaginiatve so was naturally quite skeptical about this but ended up throughly enjoying the experience! We took in some pretty eerie locations and the friendly and knowledgable guide was a credit to the whole outfit
12 Jan 2015 by harrystevens1991

Girlfriend was absolutely terrified the whole way round but I loved this, really unique facts and fun to see a bit more of the city. some of the gore stories aren't for the faint-hearted though!
