I am a huge true crime aficionado and was really looking forward to this experience for a few weeks. Finally, I managed to make it for this tour on a Sunday evening in Janaury. Our guide, Hannah, was really funny and knowledgeable, answering a lot of our additional questions. The streets of Whitechapel may look different today, but she managed to recreate the spooky atmosphere of the 1880s to such an extent that I was quite scared on my walk back to the metro station.. I highly recommend this experience to learn about a very different, darker and grittier part of London beyond the Downtown Abbey world.

Very immersive experience, detailed explanation, our guide Jack was very good in evoking the atmosphere and familiarizing us with the victims as real women who had their misfortunes in life, avoiding tradional stereotypes

We had the best time with our guide Tom! He did such an amazing job and was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and engaging. I can’t recommend him and the Jack the Ripper tour enough.

we had a lovely time with Hannah our tour guide. I she made the story about Jack the Ripper came to live it was splendid! Thanks for the great evening Hannah.

Hannah was a fantastic tour guide would highly recommend her
