This experience is more of a fun way of learning about the history of Amsterdam. Be prepared to volunteer for little creative acts. Has the choice of English which is good, don't go on if scared of dark, a it of fun, easy to get to, last about 45 mins.

The experience is fun and we had a good laugh. However didn't really learn much about the history of Amsterdam and it was €22 each, which we thought was far too much as it only lasted an hour!

I am impressed by their action. They are good actors :) especially one lady with the lighting games and make noise. She can be disappeared suddenly. Great performance. The mirror is also good thing. Very creative. Well done dude...

Waited nearly two hours to be rushed through a series of rooms in which poor actors read poorly scripted stories. The final room made good use of scary special effects. All over in 50 minutes. Please don't waste your time or money here.

I've already visited the London and Edinburgh Dungeons and thought the Amsterdam one would be similar, it was still fun but not much information about the history. I was confused about where we were going and why. This could be a language barrier although all the staff's English was excellent. I love buying pictures at the end, but the only... More

I really liked the Dungeons here. It was pouring with rain outside and they handed us free ponchos even before paying. Getting inside you can choose between Dutch and English presentations. We had a very camp Theon Greyjoy lookalike introduce us to the first room and it went on from there. I learned a bit about Dutch history and laughed... More

We have visited nearly all the Dungeons and this one is by far the best. Had an excellent time and would not hesitate visiting again next year.

The history isn't focused on as much as I would like. But you learn a few interesting things. The format is fun and it's a nice escape from everything else going on in the city. Use the bathrooms before the shows starts. It's hard to get back to them afterwards.

Excellent tour of the dungeons would highly recommend going. The enactment of the history surrounding Amsterdam was really good and the tour was spoke in English although they did take tours around the dungeons in alot of different launguages.
