I had an excellent time doing this walking tour! I’m very glad I booked this with See your City. Ivan was our tour guide and he was very creative and fun and kept the whole group engage with his stories. Despite the horrific history in Whitechapel, he was very respectful towards all the places we’ve seen and uplifted the dignity of those victims, instead of romanticizing the gruesome murders in a form of creative but sensitive storytelling. Kudos to Ivan for also keeping us safe all throughout the tour!

We were given an amazing tour by our tour guide Jack, who managed to lighten up the gruesome stories with tokens of humour and an importance on the names of the victims. It couldn’t have been done better and included everything! We would highly recommend to anyone who is fascinated by True Crime. Though the tour is 2 hours of walking and standing, so this is worth noting if you are older or have trouble walking :)

The Ripper-Vision was cool, and our guide was excellent. I'm not that into this topic, personally, but I am into history and details on Victorian life, and I got enough of that to be happy, which was nice.

Loved this experience - Nic was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject

nick was very knowledgeable , definitely recommended
