Anna made our Jack the Ripper Tour interactive and fun, despite its virtual nature. It was as if we were right there with her in London. While we weren't able to "tour" the city with her, she made our experience delightful and fun, just as if we were right there. I would recommend this experience to anyone who's got the travel bug at this time. We personally met up with family for london pub meat pies and drank guiness beforehand and met up again for english tarts afterwards which made it that much more fun!

What an excellent virtual experience! Thanks for the social distancing option to “your” without leaving our home. Our guide was very engaging and had great energy and was very knowledgeable. I got this for my wife for her birthday and she said it was her best gift ever!

well, spooky but informative and even fun. And also gives a perspective on the life in London at the end of the 19th century.

This was fun. Great alternative in times like these when sightseeing in person is not an option.
