Great evening, with lots of interesting information about the events of Whitechapel in 1888. Tour guide Nic was friendly and engaging and was most impressed with his knowledge. Especially how he recited old letters from old Jack the Ripper in his cockney accent. Was great seeing all the locations of the events of what happened and to top it off, got to have a drink in the Ten Bells pub at the end of the tour! A great evening at a great price.

Had such a great night. Obviously everyone’s heard of Jack the Ripper, watched the movies and tv shows, but to feel that your walking in the footsteps of his victims is a surreal feeling. Jack, our guide, yes Jack, was very informative and knowledgeable on the subject, he painted a vivid picture of the life in Whitechapel of 1888. Visiting the locations of the horrific crimes especially in the dark, and learning of life stories for the victims and the police force of the time, you get an understanding of what made this all possible. And even though the subject matter is dark and gruesome, the atmosphere amongst the group is of interest and fun.

Nick, our guide was truly fantastic with his knowledge of the history of these gruesome murders. Very intriguing. Some proof of details with copies of scriptures during that time were interesting & leaves you to wonder who Jack the Ripper was. Worth the tour in my opinion. Enjoyed it very much
