Guide was very knowledgeable (Hannah), very pleasant and made sure that everyone was included in the presentation. Walking route was easy to follow and no-one got lost (I don't think!) even though it was quite a large group. Originally about 40 people in the group for GYG organised for a second guide to be available so that we could split into two.

Nic was incredible, he was funny and full of information. As someone who's watched several documentaries about Jack the Ripper and thought I had fairly good knowledge but the amount of detail Nic could go into was amazing, well worth the money I paid. A great way to spend an evening in London

It was a very cool tour, where we got to know the murders of Jack the Ripper. Our guide Hannah was friendly and created a nice atmosphere during the tour. As a German I can also recommend doing the english tour. It was quite easy to understand and all in all a great experience!
