I don’t know where to start with this review! From walking in the door to leaving everything was fantastic. The story telling and the performers were first class. The scenes and props were perfect. It was dark and scary and everything I imagined a dungeon tour could be and more!! I couldn’t fault a single thing and can’t wait to do more tours the next time I’m in Edinburgh.

Brilliant experience! You can't go to Edinburgh without booking this! The actors were amazing and the set up was eerie but fantastic, there was also a few surprises along the way! I went with friends and we were clung to each other the whole time (nervously laughing). Actors interact with you but don't touch you. Scary but definitely a must!!

The actors were brilliant - made sure to make sure all the group was fully involved. The sets were fantastic and it was super clean

Bus Drivers and Staff very friendly each day we jumped on bus, very helpful with guiding us to our destinations. Bus always clean.

The cue took 100 minutes

Great experience through the dungeons through out the years and different sections of the tour. Would highly recomend!
