“!FUN! Worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

If your wanting a
good fun laugh and some history this is for you! The wait at first was a little long but once the tour started it was fun and interesting. Glad we spent our money on the tour- You can get it in English or Dutch. The tour is with about 20 people of so.

If you have young children you may want to make sure that it is suitable for them- tout here was one child about 7 or 8 years old and she was a little freaked out.
If you have problems with strobe lights it might not be for you and be mindful that there are many stairs (a common thing in Amsterdam homes/museums and likes)

“Very disappointing!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Visited here recently with my partner and we were both very disappointed. Iv been to the Edinburgh dungeons twice and have loved it both times. For what it costs it could be a bit better. The layout and actors were good but there could be a bit more going on.

Dear Tipp90,

Thank you for taking the effort to let us know how your experience was at the Amsterdam Dungeon. Thank you for the compliment about the actors and the layout. Please let us know, what you mean with: could be bit more going on? Do you mean that 11 shows are not enough?

Regards,
The Amsterdam Dungeon

“Ok amusement on a rainy day.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

A bit exciting at first, but this is more for children and people who scare easily. Not as informative as I would have thought when reading on the homepage. And not 500 years of history either. Maybe a mistranslation? I feel like the owners are trying to be both scary and informative and theatrical and they do not quite reach that goal. Good was the interactions with the audience. Not so good was the impression that the experience would be educational, and then not reaching that.

“Still getting the chills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

The actors and actresses at the Amsterdam dungeon are doing a great job at making you forget that you're in nowadays amsterdam. Creepy, scary and informative. But make sure to bring clean underwear.

“Hilarious !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We had so much fun when we visited the Dungeon. Was a great way to learn about the dark past of Amsterdam. The actors were very good and we at points wondered how they could do it without laughing themselves.

All members of our group got "picked on" at various points of the tour. My advice would be to relax and just go with the flow : )
