Superb …. The guide Andre kept the pace going in difficult busy streets with a few drunks about but the story of the ripper built up … he doesn’t give much away but builds the story and the final summing up bonds his theories together … it’s very clever … Many of the old buildings have gone , but he paints the picture of how it was . The projector really I think in my opinion add much I was a bit disappointed with it … but he is the star of the show . I left there with the conclusion of the killer after hearing so many theories … great tour … a must They could do with an extra guide just to keep you all tight together and it would make many feel safer as the London streets in that area are rough and full of idiots … an extra guide would be 100%

This tour was good but not brilliant. In my opinion there was too many in our group approx 35-40 people which made it hard to hear the guide as he was speaking to his left,centre and right so if you were in his right you couldn't make out what he said to people on left and you had to wait on people catching up at each stop.The guide has a big folder which he shows you pictures not impressed with that, a light would need to put up against it as it was hard to see as it was dark .The projector doesnt come out till half way through tour.The tour guide Mick was brilliant very informative very entertaining .be prepared to walk alot. you get to see the ten bells bar and spitalfield market which we went back to next day and explored and loved.if it was a smaller group it would have been perfect.

Sinead hopefully spelt that right. Was out guide on a lovely warm September evening. Visited a number of locations associated with Jack the Ripper and found the descriptions of life in London back then fascinating. Visited places you would not normally dsee if you were just wandering around on our own. After the walk out guide was very helpful in answering questions. We did retrace part of the walk and visited the ten bells pub. But you will need to go on the walk to find about that. Lee and Mary
