Owner description: Jack the Ripper Tours with Ripping Yarns have been the leading Jack the Ripper tours in Whitechapel for over 25 years. We remain a small Company who believe that small Group Sizes and personal interaction will surpass your expectations, as opposed to the Larger Advertised Companies who now Operate in the area. The Tour is recommended in the Rick Steves Guide book to London. The cost is just £8.00, Where else could you get a great night in London for that price? But perhaps the best measure of the Tour comes from our many customers. which are a fitting testament to the level of satisfaction. All the Guides are serving Yeoman Warders (Beefeaters) at the Tower of London, so you can be assured that your Guide knows how to conduct a tour properly and "tell a tale" the content is such that it weaves the story of Jack the Ripper, the social background and the history of the area, helping to paint the most vivid mental picture of life and death in London's East End.

For £7 per person paid in advance online, this was two hours of interesting facts all about Jack The Ripper. Barney was our guide and he was brilliant. Animated, knowledgeable and funny to the extent that our interest was captivated for the whole two hours...

The facts were spelt out, pictures were provided of how it was then to allow the comparison and it ended with some realistic theories of who Jack The Ripper actually was... Beer before and beer afterwards made it a good afternoon for two adults and I would definitely recommend!!!

£8 for 2 hours of entertainment is amazing value in London! Dickie the host is a beefeater at the tower and a fountain of knowledge. Was sceptical thinking a 2 hour tour could get as bit boring but me and my girlfriend were fascinated and Dickie's enthusiasm is infectious. Can't imagine other tours being as good, we saw a few other groups out and about that had costumes etc but they didn't have Dickie! Highly recommended

Dickie was a fantastic tour guide who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate in the delivery of this tour. The tour made the Jack the Ripper story come to life. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone seriously interested in this subject. Dickies delivery is so interesting, the time passes before you know it. Fabulous.

Our guide was Dickie and he was quite good. I found it rather interesting to hear all the known facts and some plots as who The Ripper might be. Would definitely recommend.

Fabulous !! In comparison to other groups we saw ,our group was small which meant you could clearly hear what the guide was saying . He said , not to pay until the end and then only to pay if you enjoyed the tour ! He was a fabulous guide held your focus for the 2 hour tour , very knowledgeable yet also very entertaining . Make sure you choose this tour he is the best !
