We had a blast on this tour. We decided to do it on Halloween night, so it was a little busy- but to be expected. Our tour guide Alan was a blast, he had such a great sense of humor and provided an unbiased and factual tour. He was very interactive with the group and made the tour so much fun. The driver was great as well and also had a great sense of humor. The tour wasn’t scary, so if that is what you’re looking for then I wouldn’t suggest it, but if you want a fun way to experience history, I would highly recommend doing this tour.

My sister and I recently did this tour and could not speak highly enough! Our tour guide, Allen Doyle (we believe), was an exceptional tour guide who was knowledgable but more importantly - hilarious! We appreciated that though the night focused on Jack the Ripper, our guide took opportunities to tell us about the history of the street of London, gave recommendations for activities and outlined famous movie locations - all of which contributed to a fantastic evening.

I did this tour my first night in London, I was traveling by myself and it was a great way to see the city at night. Our tour guide was funny and informative. His name was Adam and you could tell how much he loved his job!

What a fun tour! Magnus (apologies if I have this wrong) is a very informed and passionate guide. Loved the bus!

This tour was one of the highlights of our London stay. Alan our tour guide was the best, he was funny and full of facts not only about Jack the Ripper but London itself. He kept the tour interesting and upbeat even though the subject matter can be pretty gruesome. Highly recommend this tour. Only thing that could have made it better was it being darker at some of the sites, but unfortunately the sun doesn't set until very late in London this time of year.

This tour was very fun!! Very, the tour guide was very good. You'll hear the stories about every murder and some of the most plausible theories around the suspects, this tour was different than the other Jack the Ripper typical tour where you go to every site and see the pictures. There's a graphic description of the murders but it's somehow different without the visual, I quite liked it. At the end you finish in the Sherlock Holmes pub in Central London, advice! if you're thinking of having dinner there...which you can book in advance that pub is always full

Although we were halfway delirious when we did this tour due to the time difference, it still held our attention. It was full of facts, fun and gore. Our tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable.

Our tour guide from Evan Evans was very well versed on the subject of Jack the Ripper. He was able to answer random questions and suggest further reading. Not much to see but still worth it to learn all the little tidbits that were a bonus to the tour!! Thank you so much to our tour guide Nick!!

You can't beat the value. We had a one day layover in London arriving in the afternoon and departing the next morning. This was one of the few tours that started in the evening that fit our schedule. So glad we did it. Not only was it informative, but very entertaining. Our tour guide was obviously a Jack the Ripper expert and the way he told the story had us all hanging on every word. We visited some very hip neighborhoods, the tour guide pointed out all the major sights big plus Big Ben, the Abbey, Traflagar Sq, London Bridge, Parliament, etc. and ended the tour at the Sherlock Holmes pub. Sit at the top of the bus for the best views. Do try a pint of the Sherlock draft.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell he thoroughly enjoyed what he was doing. We rode some and walked some. We would walk to a certain spot and he would give us details about where we were and why we stopped there. Answered lots of questions. Would definitely recommend to friends.
