    Our guide Jack, last name...not the ripper; was brilliant. Informative and entertaining. Although me and my daughter knew a bit about the subject, we learned so much more. I especially like that Jack focused a bit more on the women, explaining their background, beginnings and the circumstances that led them to Whitechapel, to their sad ending. This highlighted the social/gender inequality of the day and he explained the changes for better which were made after these awful crimes had stopped. Well done Jack, I would recommend this tour

    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!
