You know that if one man can keep an entire group of 20 people entertained and interested in the freezing cold at the end of November, he's doing an amazing job. Jack was absolutely fantastic- giving everybody a tonne of information surrounding the key areas of the subject, and sharing relevant images with the group. He was funny, knowledgable and all round just a fun person. We had a couple of people causing a nuisance from outside of our group, however Jack was quick to shoot them down (not literally). I highly recommend for anybody looking to learn a little more about the gruesome, yet strategic murders of Jack the Ripper.

it was a blast. my stupid uber driver thought he got a positive covid test though so he had to let me know in the middle of the tour but it turns out he read his email wrong and he didn't so I missed the last 30 minutes of my tour.

As a big fan of true crime, this tour was brilliant! My boyfriend and I did this on the last night of our London visit and it was a fun but spooky way to end the trip. Our tour guide, Jack (not the ripper), was phenomenal and gave the perfect combination of respect, lightheartedness and knowledge when it came to his re-telling of the events of the ripper and his victims. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening was had!
