Fantastic tour! We went at 7pm on a Saturday evening, which was a great transition from daylight to nightfall as we moved around the sites. Our guide Jack was knowledgeable, engaging, and managed a good combination of walking and story telling. After the tour, we continued the night at The Ten Bells pub, where some of Ripper’s victims used to drink. Highly recommend the experience, and hope you enjoy as much as we did!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was lovely German lady who was very engaging to listen to and was very knowledgeable about the area and the story of Jack the Ripper. She was well prepared and along with telling us the story we were also shown various pictures of the people and the area from back then which was interesting to see. Even though the streets look very different now you can still feel the history of it all when you walk around. I definitely recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in this subject.
