Very good tour. Jack was amazing. The only down side was I was absolutely knackered after doing 26k that day so I would suggest you plan your day well so you don't over do it. I'm not old or terribly unfit but with other sight seeing during the day just tipped me over the edge of exhaustion. My 12 year old enjoyed and turned away at not so nice pictures. I would recommend as it is something different just don't have thst hectic day before hand.

Our guide was super animated and knew a lot about the history as well as about Jack the Ripper. Amazingly he had parts of letters and reports memorized and he never broke you out of your hunt for who Jack the Ripper was. He also gave a very good picture as to where in relationship everything happened. 10/10 would definitely recommend this trip. If not for the history and story (for those Jack the Ripper buffs) at least for a tour of the crime scenes.

Aside from the story of the infamous Jack the Ripper, our tour guide Tom (also known as Jack for those who didn't quite like him) was the absolute best thing! He was very informative and certainly not i the boring way! His energy was something else! I would very happily joind him on any other tour! Really recomend to see for yourself and try this tour!
