    Underground exploration
    My partner and I had a fantastic tour here in Feb 2020. It's €12.50ish pp so it's pricey for 1.5hours but worth it we thought. We had no expectations as we had initially intended on doing DOMtower but due to weather conditions decided not to. The tour was about 45mins in the cellars talking about the history of Utrecht and the square in particular, then 45mins in the excavated area under the square. We had a brilliant time and would highly recommend to other travellers over 10ish, younger kids probably wouldn't get much out of it and could be scared.

    Modern archaeology
    Visiting a historical site is not always interesting, but in DOMUnder they really build up a story about it, getting you to experience the life of an archaeologist. It's a modern and interesting twist to a ruins visit. The guides are amazing getting you into the adventure. And in the end you had a very good time learning about the Utrecht past.

    A great and unusual experience
    The tour is very well organised. The explanation by the guide in the museum before you visit the actual site in the middle of the square is very informative and important to understand the context. The actual visit to the DOMunder is also interesting and fruitful. To be honest I did not like the fact that you have to go out from the ticketing / intro area to enter the DOMunder and I was expecting something much bigger, but still the visit was all worth it. Another point I would like to highlight is the fact that to get the info you must point your audio mobile to small light panels scattered in the excavations. These are not clearly marked and you will finish with a feeling that you had missed quite a bunch, even if probably that was not the truth.

1 hour guided tour in the underground of the DOM cathedral and the DOM Tower at the price of 12.50 euros. At the moment it is not completely ready for foreign tourists to visit in English. However a guide offered to explain the whole tour to me in English. Interesting the part with the torches in search of sensors in the Roman ruins that activate an explanation (these are available in English). It is worth a visit ... even if some details could still be improved, such as the audio and video quality of the introductory film and also the lights in the excavations to enhance the site.

The tour-guide was extremely enthusiastic and made us more curious and involved all the time. The archeological site itself was a great experience with the smart lamps.

DOMunder is a simple concept capturing nearly 2000 years of history .. wow. The story is well explained and well reinforced. Easy for English visitors to follow. A really good way to learn about the history of Utrecht in 90 minutes.

The tour is a mixture of talk by an enthusiast, video & underground exploration. It takes you through the history from the earliest Roman times to the modern time. The only slight disappointment was the underground exploration as I couldn’t get the equipment to work reliably - great concept though.
