It was a great experience for my daughters and I. Loved Patrick's enthusiasm and superhero knowledge. We would highly recommend any comic or superhero lover to definitely book this tour. You will get a different perspective that you wouldn't have necessarily thought of. #teamflash, # teamwintersoldier, #team spiderman.

Patrick was great. Very interesting & informative tour…I’m not even that into Comic books but got pulled in to wanting to answer the questions!! Really enjoyed it.

Went with my daughter and both had a great time. We had Orlando as our guide, he was amazing! We learned alot about both DC and Marvel.

Claire was lots of fun, full of energy, and a great storyteller. We learned quite a bit too!

Great if you love the theatre and shows and Chris made it really fun
