Here's what an actual school has to say about us:

"We had a great experience at the San Francisco Dungeon. The tour itself was not only funny, entertaining, and engaging, but extremely educational and informative as my students learned about the origins of San Francisco including the gold rush, early gangs of San Francisco, and the Black Plague.

The actors were great; they adapted well to student comments and responses, and struck the perfect balance of being informative, funny, and a bit scary! Not only did students learn on their visit to the Dungeon, but it was also a great bonding experience for our classroom community as a whole.

Experiencing the Dungeon together brought us all closer and had my students telling stories to each other and their friends. I would highly recommend a trip to the San Francisco Dungeon!"
