    Sinead is an EXCELLENT tour guide. Not only is she entertaining and engaging but her knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject is infectious.Sinead set the scene beautifully,giving us all a real sense of how it was to live in the 1880’s and considering the gruesome subject matter she delivered the facts whilst being sensitive to the groups needs This tour is not for the delicate or faint hearted but my daughters(youngest aged 13) were enthralled and we all agree it was the best walking tour we’ve ever done.

    Our guide was excellent lots of knowledge and an expert on Jack the Ripper. He was friendly and entertaining. We were part of a large group (up to 30) so you need to be aware of traffic walking through some of the narrow and busy streets and not just blindly follow others!! If you are expecting to see Victorian buildings and it look as it did back then you will be disappointed. Much of the area has been redeveloped and rebuilt many years ago although a few old buildings do still exist. This tour takes you around the area where Jack the Ripper killed his victims and tells you how life was during those times. Our guide knew the area exceptional well and even took us on a detour to tell us some other interesting facts about the area.
