Angie was one of the best tour guides i have had. she has a way of telling stories that made me feel in 1888, she caught my attention and was also funny. I completely recommend a tour with her.

Angie made this tour so informative and lively! The photos and the narrative took us back in time and we visited a part of London we probably would not have seen. Great Job Angie!

Angie our guide was very informative and yet managed to make a lot of information fun and interesting. For £10 each this is very good value for money and it also shows you parts of London you may not normally visit.

Angie was our guide and she was excellent. In addition to the Ripper story, we also got a glimpse of life back then in the late 1800's. Definitely a must if you like a good murder mystery experience.
