Natasha was wonderful, she did an excellent job at telling the history and guiding us throughout the tunnels. We got a beer tasting inside of the tunnels, and then took a beer to go at our exit. You are allowed to take pictures down the tunnels. Sadly, we didn't get any pictures of ghosts besides some orbs. Overall a fun activity to do.

It was for a Birthday. Caitlyn was funny, informative, and very helpful with photos. We learned a lot more about the poor souls that were "Shanghaied". I have already recommended it to others.

Chris was a super guide. Friendly, interested and interesting. I really liked how he wanted to hear my stories as much as wanted to tell me his.

We had a great time on this tour. The guide was so knowledgeable and engaging. She had a great personality and we learned a lot.

Lori was very friendly and had a TROVE of stories. She was engaging and I learned a lot.
