I absolutely loved the tour and highly recommend it! Came to London for a long business trip and I was looking into do something at a Sunday evening; what else but a murder tour :D I’ve always been interested in mysteries and the Jack the Ripper case was certainly one, so I decided to try out this tour. I will definitely look into booking further adventures via you guys, especially if all your guides are as good as Jack :)

Easy meeting point to find then went on a two hour walk around Whitechapel with our guide Jack (real name.) As well as showing us sights he also showed, on his tablet, old photos of the streets and buildings of how they once looked. Jack was very tactful on when to be amusing and when to be respectful on such a sensitive topic. He was also very patient with drunks passing by, who kept interrupting him.

Good walking tour with pictures that helped you visualise what the area that you were walking through was once like. Jack, our guide, was an excellent orator, cteating atmosphere to the story. Sometimes shocking, the story highlighted the nature of a true of the killer, adding a chill to the air.
