I walk through this area for work everyday and never knew it had such a creepy history... dear god. We loved the mission too, I feel the same way as Anton!

Brandon G, Amsterdam

An amazing way to spend time with my friends who ‘never get scared’. the clues were a bit challenging for us at first but we got the hang of it.

Elena D, Birmingham

I did NOT need to know these things about my city! But at the same time I do.. The stories were fantastic, we loved the route and all the places we never knewabout even if we were born here. Good stuff

Sara V, Sydney

Great fun, spooky stories, amazing sites off the beaten paths. Thank you!

We certainly took our time, but it was a great time! We saw everything we wanted to see, scoped out areas we want to explore further, and learned some creepy history!
