The tour was extremely thorough, interesting, and gave great insight into both the case of Jack the Ripper and the history of the area. Our tour guide, Tom, was fantastic, and you could tell he knew the topic inside and out. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone looking for something to do in the city at night, especially true crime buffs or those interested in unsolved mysteries. Thanks for a great night!!

It was great! Exciting, scary and entertaining. Our German guide (unfortunately I don't remember the name but it was a lady from Hamburg) was great! Not recommended for small children, but otherwise for everyone!

The tour guide (Tom) was amazing! He kept the tour lively and really knew what he was talking about. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends.
