I was a tourist in my home town! And so happy that I was. What a great way to see the hidden corners of Whitechapel. There was a large enough group, people from all over the place. I was on my own, as well as another lady and a man from Germany. We were lucky with a lovely sunny evening in May. I have no morbid fascination with murder cases, I simply looked at what tours were on offer and thought this would be interesting- and I wasn't disappointed! It's a fascinating case, and SO much more was brought to this by the tour guide than I had ever seen in documentaries about it. AT FIRST. I thought that the guide should have a London accent, as in the same if I went to Dublin, it would be nice if the guide had a local accent- this girl was from Italy- but she really did herself proud, full of energy and so friendly and helpful. It was as good as it possibly could be and I HEARTILY recommend this to anyone visiting London. You really are left far more enlightened.

Tom was excellent story teller! He kept my 10 year old granddaughter captivated with ghost stories. He spoke loud and very clear as we were a large group. Well done!

Jack and Hannah were fantastic, very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend if the macabre is what you are looking for.

It was a very informative tour which covered various parts of the city. Well worth cost. Really great guide!

Very interesting tour. Covered a lot of facts and details
