Our tour guide's name was Jack and he made the experience a true entertainment. From memorizing intriguing Jack the Ripper letters and delivering west end quality soliloquy amongst chronologically regaling the story, we were on the edge of our heels the entire time. Jack, our tour guide, showed us fascinating pictures of the events from the late 1800s whilst floating us around to the many crime locations. He illustratively brought to life the specific geographical location of Whitechapel and the city of London to ruminate the replaced architecture as if we were walking the victorian streets of the time. I’d highly recommend Jack as a tour guide! 5 stars!!

Our guide, Tom, was excellent. Although he is clearly often the guide on this walk he managed to make it feel fresh. He was informative, good fun, and fhroughout the two hours always willing to answer any questions members of the group had, showing that his knowledge of ripperology extends way beyond the material he covered during the walk. I parti ularly appreciated that he gave background information on Whitechapel in the 1880s, providing context to the crimes we were learning about.

With the most fitting of names, Jack, the tour guide, was brilliant! Entertaining, educational, and a real thought provoking experience. An evening well spent - Jack was super enticing, his knowledge was second to none and the delivery was even better. Highly recommended to any aspiring Ripperologists.

Great exciting tour, guide Jack told everything with humor, great expertise and illustrative material! Highly recommended if you are in London!

Our tour guide Jack was amazing. He did a great job in walking us through this.
