Fantastic tour! We went at 7pm on a Saturday evening, which was a great transition from daylight to nightfall as we moved around the sites. Our guide Jack was knowledgeable, engaging, and managed a good combination of walking and story telling. After the tour, we continued the night at The Ten Bells pub, where some of Ripper’s victims used to drink. Highly recommend the experience, and hope you enjoy as much as we did!

Our tour guide was Jack, he was very friendly and informative. I've wanted to do this tour for years. I'm glad I finally got to. Considering its a 2 hour tour the price is very well worth it. I'd recommend.
