Took my 15 year old daughter and was expecting quite a fuss from her about staying to the end of the tour as it was cold and wet but she thoroughly enjoyed it. She even told her friends about it afterwards! Our tour guide was very entertaining, informative, considerate of us and people who would need to get past our group and the tour was great value. Thank you.

We really enjoyed the Gravedigger tour, the staff did an excellent job of entertaining the crowd and keeping us laughing throughout. It was a great way to see Dublin in a new way after living here for almost a decade! Would highly reccommend it.

If I could take this tour again, I would in a heartbeat. John was absolutely amazing and made the entire tour very engaging and so much fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes history or anything even remotely spooky
