    Every Dundonian should do this tour. A dramatic telling of some of the most gruesome murders in the West End. A thoroughly entertaining evening.

    Excellent delivery of the most gruesome facts about murders in the west end of Dundee. Stewart and Louise never fail to entertain and have a wealth of knowledge they deliver to make sure the audience are enthralled with their tales! My third tour and I’m certain it won’t be my last! Well hopefully🙏🏻 I will avoid Alexanders just in case 😉

  3. Art McGuinness (verified owner)

    As usual an excellent, informative and entertaining tour. Stories are well told with a bit of humour, and the walk is not too strenuous. Our relatives over from Cork loved it and remarked that they had nothing like it in Cork.

    An excellent tour full of interesting history delivered in a way that captures your attention. DD Tours help you to see differently the streets we thought we knew so well.
