The tour is excellent even for travellors without any previous knowledge of Jack the Ripper. The guide is very nice and knowledgable, the tour is organised and people won't lose track easily. It provides slightly different information when comparing with the Jack the Ripper Museum-- They discribe the events from different perspectives. So if you are really interested in the mysterious murderer, you better take part of both of them.

We (family with 16 y/o son ) enjoyed so much from the tour but mostly from our guide - Jack (yes , the same name ) This is 2 hours outside tour , but Jack got us into the Victorian atmosphere very easily, and maintained it throughout the various stops on the tour.

My friend and I both live in East London and decided to go on this tour to discover the horrors and mysteries that happened in our neighborhood years ago. Anna was super knowledgeable, friendly and charismatic. She had great insights into the hundreds of theories surrounding the case. 2 hours flew by, she made the tour feel very entertaining, and we never got bored. Thanks again! Fingers crossed we make it home alive!!
