    I signed up to go with friends and had no idea what we were in for, I had kind of assumed that it would be a standard ghost tour, going from spot to spot to hear creepy stories. There are elements of that but also some pretty entertaining performance elements that I hadn't anticipated. Overall it was a great time if you're in to spooky stuff.

    Super entertaining! Our six-year old loves spooky stories so we agreed to take her along despite the 14+ age recommendation (parents of the year!). The actors didn't hold back and our daughter was able to cover her eyes when things got too scary. They did avoid making her the target of the plague-infested tour guide's attention. Very professional. When we asked what she liked most about the entire Dublin visit, our daughter always says it was the Ghost Bus. As for us, we are true history lovers, and the tour was filled with fun facts and real site visits to Dublin's darker side. We would definitely recommend The Gravedigger, and plan go again the next time we are in town.

    Great experience. Did it before back in 2014 and still enjoyed this time. Great alternative Halloween activity instead of a busy pub/night club during covid times. Our guides Dan and Ellen were fantastic as was the wider team. It was a very enjoyable night, enjoyed the later time as it finished right on the stroke of midnight marking the start of Halloween. I would 100% recommend
