    A very fine, interesting tour. Learned a lot about Jack The Ripper and 19th century Whitechapel. It rained the entire tour, but this didn't bother us as we were so captivated by our wonderful guide, who was obviously very passionate about the subject. It's also nice that this way you get to parts of London that you would never get to otherwise.

    The tour was excellent. Our guide Angie was dressed for the occasion, she is a tower of knowledge in all things about Jack the Ripper. We walked the streets of Whitechapel and surrounding areas for 2 hours and it felt like only 1 hour. We saw photos, we visited streets where murders were committed. I cannot recommend the tour enough. Sadly it will probably be an app which you download and walk around yourself in 10years, so get the experience of a tour guide now!

    Our tour guide Jeremy was energetic and enthusiastic. He made us feel comfortable and involved. It was a great tour and the 2 hours felt like they flew by. He was very informative and made it a fun experience. We were running slightly behind due to rail closures and they couldn’t accommodate us enough. They guided us over the telephone to catch up with the tour and didn’t make us feel bad for being slightly late.
