A rainy Saturday evening was the perfect setting for this amazing tour of London's most heinous crimes. Our tour guide, Angie was very inclusive, informative and imaginative. Well worth getting soaked for. An amazing two hours. Well worth a visit. 5 stars.

Way better than expected, and mostly because of our guide, Angie. She killed it. She told the story of Jack the Ripper in an engaging and thrilling way. So glad I decided to take the tour.
