Angie really brought this tragic story to life. She gave a great history lesson to help us understand how life was during this time period. She never lost my attention and her passion for this story was evident. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a really fun tour. Our guide Angie was a lot of fun. She set the tone and provided great storytelling while walking on the streets where the Ripper hunted his victims. It brought the story to life!
