Best. London. Tour. Ever. - This was the most in depth tour I’ve had about the London murders in 1888. Milo was professional, engaging, and entertaining. His expertise about the crimes gave a thoughtful summary on what we should take away from the infamy of Jack the Ripper. Highly recommended.

Best part of my trip to London! - I really enjoyed this tour. Hannah the tour guide was equal parts knowledgeable and captivating. Learning more about Jack the Ripper, the Whitechapel murders, the women’s stories and the history of the town was brilliant! Despite the rainy cold weather, there wasn’t a dull moment. I highly recommend this tour!

Jack the Ripper with Jack the Guide :) - We had Jack (not the Ripper) as our guide. He was really funny and did a great job. Feel free to ask him extra questions during the tour. My friend and I can definitely recommend. He really made us feel as if we were watching the murders ourselves. Ps: give Jack the Guide a raise. It was freezing and poor guy still held his IPad in his hands to show us all the pictures hahaha

Amazing tour! - The guide, Jacob, was very nice, he explained everything a bit mysterious but also in a fun and interesting way. He explained who the victims were and how they were murdered and some conspiracy theories about who Jack the Ripper could be. I’ll recommend it a 100%!
