Our Guide Jack was great. He seemed genuinely interested and enthusiastic about Jack the Ripper. He made the experience interesting aswell as educational and comical at times. The group was nice and small, so you didn't feel overwhelmed, or too shy to ask questions or make comments. It was also easier to hear Jack as we could all group together in the cold. We shall definitely use "Get Your Guide" again.

Our guide… Jack (can you believe it?!) was excellent. He displayed a great wealth of knowledge on the subject and kept professional (and theatrical) throughout the whole guide, which made for a really interesting evening. He welcomed open discussion and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. He could not have done a better job, unless of course he could have revealed the true identity of Jack the Ripper. Truly a great asset to get your guide. 11/10

Our tour guide's name was Jack and he made the experience a true entertainment. From memorizing intriguing Jack the Ripper letters and delivering west end quality soliloquy amongst chronologically regaling the story, we were on the edge of our heels the entire time. Jack, our tour guide, showed us fascinating pictures of the events from the late 1800s whilst floating us around to the many crime locations. He illustratively brought to life the specific geographical location of Whitechapel and the city of London to ruminate the replaced architecture as if we were walking the victorian streets of the time. I’d highly recommend Jack as a tour guide! 5 stars!!
