      It was a really interesting tour that brought the past to life with lots of historical facts. Our tour guy was enthusiastic and also brought along a lap top to show photos. It was really interesting and fun and I would definitely recommend. It was a good way to walk around the area too.

      Jack was our tour guide; he was lots of fun and full of knowledge! He was very good at making sure the entire group were able to keep up and that everyone could hear him and be engaged with the history! He was very happy to have a chat and talk about any questions any of us had about the Ripper, and made for some really interesting conversations! Jack made the tour completely, he was compelling and had a flair for the dramatics that made it all the more fun! His wit and humour made for an incredible evening, and his focus on the women to end the night was refreshing and very sweet. Overall, this was an incredible tour and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide than Jack!

      We really enjoyed the Jack the Ripper tour on Saturday 10th July. The tour guide, Jack, was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience truly fascinating. It really did give us a new perspective on the whole story and found it somewhat surreal to be standing in areas where the crimes had actually taken place which, at times, really helped transport you back to that time in history. We would highly recommend Jack as a tour guide as you could tell he had a real passion for the story and was extremely good at keeping our attention for the whole 2 hours. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.
