    Jack was our tour guide; he was lots of fun and full of knowledge! He was very good at making sure the entire group were able to keep up and that everyone could hear him and be engaged with the history! He was very happy to have a chat and talk about any questions any of us had about the Ripper, and made for some really interesting conversations! Jack made the tour completely, he was compelling and had a flair for the dramatics that made it all the more fun! His wit and humour made for an incredible evening, and his focus on the women to end the night was refreshing and very sweet. Overall, this was an incredible tour and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide than Jack!

    Perla (our tour guide) was absolutely amazing tonight. She was so so informative and you can tell she loves the whole topic of Jack the Ripper so much - her passion for the topic made it even more enjoyable. The tour was very interesting and I learnt a lot, initially I thought the 2 hours was quite a long time for a tour but when the tour started the time flew by. Perla’s upbeat and lively personality made the tour all the more better. She even stayed behind and discussed theories with us afterwards! Would highly recommend, especially if you can get a tour with Perla, you are in luck.

    Jack was an amazing tour guide! Full of information and really friendly and welcoming with a brilliant sense of humour too! Jack was able to tell us lots of information not just about the ripper, but London history in general and was happy to answer a multitude of questions from the group. Highly recommended. Thank you Jack! We had a great evening
