Had Sinéad as my tour guide. She was very factual and passionate about the tour. She kept a good pace for the entire group, walking fast but letting those slower catch up before beginning a new topic, and made sure she was loud and clear for everyone. She didn’t do any unnecessary theatrics and had a good amount of historical evidence and anecdotes about the area. Was a great tour overall although very sad about what happened to the victims.

Our tour guide, Johnny was honestly the best. My boyfriend and I are from Toronto, Canada and were told to do this tour and we were so glad we did. Johnny has a lot of information and passion on the subject, was very animated, friendly and it was overall a great time! I would definitely recommend this tour to any tourists coming to London, I’d even do it again!

The Jack the Ripper walking tour was very interesting and our guide Mike was extremely passionate and knowledgeable on the subject! I highly recommend doing a walking tour if you can (even just for the walk). I liked this tour because it went the extra mile and projected images to really paint the picture (especially where the old buildings had been torn down/ replaced).
