Angie is an outstanding tour guide - articulate, engaging, and extremely well read. The story Angie tells isn't sensationalised at all, and it's a perfect blend of history and geography. Angie is particularly skilled at putting the focus on the people involved, reminding you that these were real people and not characters in a story, rather than just focusing on the events that occurred. Angie's tour is also complimented by photos and an e-book that's delivered to your phone as you're on the tour. 12 quid for all of this is excellent value, particularly for London, and would strongly recommend this tour to anyone with even a passing interest in JtR or history in general. Thanks again Angie, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Our guide Angie was fantastic, gave an excellent tour taking you right through the streets of the Victorian East End, bringing the whole terrible tale of Jack the Ripper to life. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for not only the ripper but general life in Victorian poverty was excellent - couldn't have had a better guide!

Angie was excellent!! We were a bit worried it would be too “made for tourists” not respectful etc, but it was mostly about the victims and how awful harsh life was back then for women working the street. Really recommend it!

Hello Julia Thank you for your comments and we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your Jack the Ripper tour with Angie finding her style of delivery excellent and the emphasis on the people of Whitechapel and their lives rather than just the details of the murder case. We do feel its so important to talk about the social conditions and how it impacted on the lives of Eastenders. Thank you for your recommendation With best wishes Richard

Angie truly loves her job. She is very knowledgeable about the history of Jack the Ripper. We took the tour on a cold night which added to the experience. Angie had pictures of the places where the brutal murders took place. Really enjoyed her tour.
