Awesome experience
It was a wonderful experience, our guide with his talents as actresses succeeded in making us travel and feel this fascinating period of the time of the inquisition.
Great tour, very informative
Great tour guide, very informative. Very theatrical which made you feel you were actually back in the times of when the events happened and it added that extra spook appeal.
Awesome after dark tour
We enjoyed it very much! We were three friends plus another couple. Our guide Liam was very interesting and very theatrical. Dressed from the past, he told us many stories and legends and took us through beautiful streets despite the cold and the snow. I totally recommend it for an after dark tour, giving you a chance to see the monuments without any tourists.
