Fremantle Prison, Fremantle Reviews

  • Did the tunnel tour with my wife, our two boys and a friend of my youngest son. The youngest son and his friend are both 12 years old. We all found the tour both interesting and entertaining. Just be mindful of the fact that you climb down 20 metres on three flights of vertical ladders (with safety harnesses). Then an hour or so later after much walking, stooping and paddling, you have to climb back up 20 metres of ladders. I would definitely do it again and it is a memorable experience for visitors.

  • Was a great way to spend a couple hours. Well worth a look. Tour guides were great atmosphere wise but didn't seem to have any knowledge outside their talk. Couldn't answer many of our questions.

  • Great tours, super friendly and knowledgeable guides who really get into the spirit and bring everyone along for the adventure. Lots to learn and discover here. Highly recommend this place and the tours, you could do a lot here. Really accessible and they know how to cater and make the best for everyone. All ages can enjoy this. Learn about history.

  • A top attraction and easily accessed from town! I've only done the Doing Time tour during the day, which was fantastic with a great tour guide, and very good value for money. From what I've heard, the other tours available are also very good! I would have done the Torchlight tour had it been available on the day.

  • Definitely recommendable. Did the package with two day tours (Behind Bars and another one). Our guide was informative and funny. I was a bit disappointed that a lot of stuff that was told on the first tour was repeated on the second tour.
