Our guide Hanna has done a very good job. She combined the historic facts with some good portion of action skills. Besides being quite funny and joking about certain aspects, she never missed the respect for the poor victims of these horrible crimes. Most of all I enjoyed the impressions of the living conditions 130 years ago and the little original historical references in the streets.

An awesome tour! Tom was an excellent guide and the small group size made the tour more personalized. We were able to see all the important sites of the Jack the Ripper murders and learn about all the key players. It was nice that Tom actually had a visual guide to help tell the story. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a Jack the Ripper activity or anyone interested in history.

Fantastic tour that dove into the history of the neighborhood and the terrible events that took place during the ‘autumn of terror’. Hannah was an engaging guide and great at descriptions and characteristics to provide our group a picture of what really took place. The photos she provided on the iPad were appreciated. Definitely recommend.
