My girlfriend and I were impressed. Especially if you're easily jumpy anyway, like my girlfriend for example, then this is definitely a trip you should do. You definitely get a lot for the price! There is a lot of work behind it and you can tell. Here and there there would certainly still be a little potential for improvement, but all in all it's worth it!

Just great! You get to know a part of the history of Hamburg in a completely different way, with a scary factor ;-) the actors are doing a great job, keep it up. The dungeon is a MUST when visiting Hamburg and we would even go there a second time

I've done a lot of dungeon and Ghost tours and this one has been the best so far. Great acting and effects make some moments truly frightening. Highly recommended.

the whole exp is great and my daughter was able to follow eventhough she is not fluent in German

Great experience, great actors. It was a lot of fun and you learned a lot about Hamburg.
