Highly recommended!
This app is just fantastic, I don't know any other company that is able arrange a private guide just an hour after booking! We booked the Jack the Ripper tour last minute and it made our last night in London very special. Our guide Hazel was engaging and really made the events come to life. She was able and willing to answer all of our questions and had an amazing theatrical twist to the way she presents information.

Great tour
My husband wanted to do the Jack Ripper tour for many years and I finally got around to booking it. I didn't know a lot of the details about Jack the Ripper before the tour but our guide Alex was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable. It's definitely worth going!

Lots of walking but so worth it
We went on the Jack the Ripper tour last night with some friends and had a great time! Our guide James was amazing - very energetic, funny and well informed. We also liked that all the tours are private and limited to 6 people, there were no strangers in the group.

We enjoyed it so much
It was really interesting to walk around the same parts of the city where the Ripper would have been looking for his victims. The route couldn't have been better and the guide was very knowledgeable, interesting and a friendly gent indeed. Don't miss out.

Had a lot of fun on this tour
We learned a great deal about Jack the Ripper and the women he killed that we didn't know before. Our guide talked about the history of London in the late 1880s as we visited the sites connected to the Ripper.
