Amazing, Fantastic. the actors involve you in the story from second 1. dancing, mystery, riddles, conversations. stealing, giving advice to the actors, interaction is fantastic. loved it all the way!! afterwards I was able to take pictures with the actors!! 10/10!!!!!

London Dungeons was great! We weren’t able to do the London Eye because I didn’t see the fine print that you needed to book a time for that separately and when I went to book the time, there weren’t any available.

Very warm, friendly and informative. Nice balance of historic info and fun. Our guide Sy was superb. Really brought the group together and was a very enjoyable afternoon and a fantastic way to meet new people.

Guided by “Danny Boy”, I spent the most enjoyable part of my vacation on this tour. I experienced 4 great Pubs and tasted very good beers. I plan to take this tour again on my next visit to London :)

Absolutely amazing, great food, amazing atmosphere. The singer was unbelievably good. Very nice staff too. We wish it would’ve last longer but definitely beautiful 3 hours. Great job guys
