Great Fun

It was a dark and stormy night ... it really was, as we started our Jack the Ripper Walking Tour. The guide was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about all things Jack the Ripper. It was fascinating to walk the streets and learn about the victims. Fun and different way to spend an evening.

The meeting point was difficult to find because the marker on the map was set incorrectly. Following the description we found the meeting point. John, our guide, gave us interesting insights into the living conditions at the time and why the mystery was born. Highly recommended

Mister John explained us the background of JtR very well.

Der Treffpunkt war schwer zufinden, da 20 andere Anbieter auch vor Ort waren. Aber im Vorbeigehen merkten wir schnell, dass unsere Tour wirklich gut organisiert, perfekt zusammengefasst und präzise ausgewählt war. Mister John gab uns einen sehr speziellen Eindruck von der Zeit rund um JtR und dessen Morde. Sehr empfehlenswert und auch für nicht gut englisch sprechend verständlich!
