“Just back from the vault tour, absolutely brilliant. Louise and Stewart certainly know their history, very informative, I was amazed with things I never knew about Dundee. “

“My teenage daughter and I went on the vaults tour in Dundee and absolutely loved it! … I would 100% recommend a dark Dundee tour for anyone either from Dundee or visiting.”

    Had an amazing tour today, I really enjoyed exploring the vaults and all the stories they told. Also appreciate the fact they acknowledged Dundee’s (and other Scottish cities) connections to slavery as I feel like that’s often overlooked. They have done such a great job with the set up of the vaults and are very friendly and approachable, we have already booked on for two more tours and we are really looking forward to it! The only minor gripe I have is maybe a little more time to look and read things (but I’m a slow reader so maybe it would be enough time for a faster reader!) Many thanks to you both!
