Carl was a fantastic tour guide - he was funny, engaging and we covered a large area and he had so many interesting tales to tell from ghosts to the gruesome and everything in between. He even spent time talking to the group in between the stops. I highly recommend if you like a bit of the macabre. Thank you Carl.
The tour guide didn't show up

After waiting for half an hour, the tour guide still had not shown up. A horrible let down, wouldn't recommend.
Great for the family

Great tour for families. Would have liked to go into some crypts and catacombs, but the stories our guide shared were fun. Not a ton of scary and horror stories/experiences.
Enjoyed the dark side!

After the booking was confirmed, the day before, they WhatsApp me to tell me that tey might cancell it and will confirm the next day. On the day 5 hours before the tour I had to contact them and ask about it. They just cancelled it. I still have not received my refund!!

Dublin at Night

Helena was great. We had a small group and she was able to make a nice night of it. She was knowledgeable and really enthusiastic about the info being relayed. (With no fault to her, we understood the tour actually went inside the locations, not just stop outside. Even then, tour was still good.)
Nice tour
