Jack The Ripper Walking Tour

Jack The Ripper Walking Tour

Product Review (submitted on January 4, 2014):
I was a virgin tour walker. This was my very first time, so I needed to be impressed. I took the tour with my girlfriend and my daughter. By the way, this was a surprise for my daughter who is an avid Jack The Ripperite. We met our guide, Siddy, at St.Botolphs church near Aldgate underground station. Our party consisted of about 10 people, so it had a nice personal touch about it. Siddy, as a tour guide, was EXCELLENT. She was friendly, funny and very knowledgable about the whole Ripper history and background. Though it was cold and the rain threatened to wash us out on a couple of occasions, the walking tour was a great experience. Siddy's voice projection was very good and needed to be against the traffic in some places. She set the scene for each of the murders expertly. You could almost feel yourself being teleported back in time and being a 'fly on the wall' witnessing each gruesome murder. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. My daughter absolutely lapped it up. My only suggestion is for Siddy to dress up as a prostitute of the period. Nothing kinky, it's just that all of the Ripper's victims were prostitutes. It would add to the occasion and overall experience. The audience might even feel that the presence of The Ripper, might be amongst them in search of another victim to add to his tally.
