    Our tour guide Jeremy was energetic and enthusiastic. He made us feel comfortable and involved. It was a great tour and the 2 hours felt like they flew by. He was very informative and made it a fun experience. We were running slightly behind due to rail closures and they couldn’t accommodate us enough. They guided us over the telephone to catch up with the tour and didn’t make us feel bad for being slightly late.

    Philip was well informed, engaging and entertaining. The geography of London and the continual rejuvination of the city mean that it is a little hard to get a real picture of the Victorian London in which these crimes were committed but his descriptions were vivid and his retelling clear. He can't help it if most of the sites have been built over now after all!

    Amazing Tour! Our excellent tour guide Philip made a great impression about what kind of person the notorious Jack The Ripper really was. With lots of different character introductions and scenes you will be taken at night to various murder delicts with still some of the old original buildings and scenery left! Who was Jack The Ripper? Let Philips take you back in time! “A passionned ripperologist with an hilarious sense of humor, exclusive details, pictures and murder delicts.” Laura & Remon
