we absolutely loved our jack the ripper tour experience with our guide jack (he was much less scary than the real jack)! he knew his stuff very well.. and brought humour and fun to a heavy topic. he gave us detailed history of each case, in the relevant locations. he even told us about some theories of who the ripper actually was. we really liked that he ended the tour on a positive note, acknowledging that the most important thing is the lives and identities of the women lost, and not the identity of the ripper himself. we really enjoyed the two hours, and even got a drink at the pub where the tour ended, which was one of the relevant locations, as told to us by jack. highly recommend and thankyou so much jack!

Hannah the tour guide was fantastic , she really bought the tour to life being able to see the photos of all the places and people involved was brilliant. we would definitely recommend the tour I learnt lots but the information wasn't just dates times etc , Hannah explained it all in detail asked us questions and feedback. only tiny miniscule gripe is would of preferred to be taken back to meeting point as would of been able to get back to our hotel easier but I'm being picky. book it request Hannah you will love it.

Jack was an amazing guide, he really knows a lot about Jack the Ripper and the history about Whitechapel. He is an extraordinary good storyteller, with a great sense of humour. It was super interesting listening to him, thats a gift everyone should experience. Totally would recommend!

I enjoyed the tour big time! Nic is an excellent guide! So passionate and expressive - a great storyteller! Im a big fan of truecrime and certainly wasn’t disappointed! Haven’t even noriced when the two hours passed:) highly recommend!

Very immersive experience, detailed explanation, our guide Jack was very good in evoking the atmosphere and familiarizing us with the victims as real women who had their misfortunes in life, avoiding tradional stereotypes
