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!

Our tour guide was Jack, he was very friendly and informative. I've wanted to do this tour for years. I'm glad I finally got to. Considering its a 2 hour tour the price is very well worth it. I'd recommend.

The tour was fun, informative, and intriguing! Our tour guide, Alex, had a vast knowledge of history that really put the ghost stories into question.

The stories were very well told by our guide Alex, learning the history of London was facinating too
