The experience was great. I had little knowledge about the history of the incidents involving the Ripper previous to the tour, but our guide was very informative and even those who know very little can follow it without any problems. The guide was super informative and very friendly. I strongly recommend the tour to anyone!

Our guide Jack, he swears he's not the ripper, led us through one of the dark chapters of London in a very entertaining way with a healthy sense of humor and obvious enthusiasm for the subject. The other ripper groups we met on the tour seemed much more bored than we felt. Highly recommended!
