    The grotiest place to visit No way us it worth $30 I would not recommend this tour at all The buildings need to be demolused Znd the staff are just weird

    The prison has a really interesting story, but the experience is really badly done. It’s very cheap and shoddy. $30 gets you a handheld audio speaker with a very limited history of the prison. It would have been nice to have been able to learn about the social history, the life stories of some of the prisoners, the construction of the prison, the experience of the prisoners during and after the earthquake etc. none of this is covered at all. The information boards also have only a small amount of detail and large areas of the prison are barricaded off with builders fences making the experience a bit like walking around a dilapidated building site. It was a shame as it could have been so much more. Certainly not worth the admission charge. They also offered a “ghost tour” and an escape room experience. I think the owners need to decide what they are trying to be and do it properly.

    This was super fun and… bonus, a bit creepy! We did the self guided history tour with audio guide which was great. Loved the run down historic nature of the place. So much history! Don’t forget to do an escape room while you’re there (book ahead) family fun - yay!

    We did the history tour which was very interesting. Hard to believe it was still operating into the 1990s. A family of five with teens, we tacked on an escape room experience, which is such a cool idea for an old prison. Alas, we were not clever enough to escape within the 60 minutes. In fact, we'd probably still be there if there wasn't a time limit!

    On a busy public holiday with hard working staff, we really enjoyed our tour. The tour was informative and fun and the staff- 3 young adults were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

    Had an amazing experience, everything was well organised. Enjoyed the escape room activity and completed the challenge (Ishaan thank you :p) We took the ghost tour and it was worth the time we spent over there. Had a great chat with Ishaan and he gave us awesome reference for lunch. Thank you Ishaan for your hospitality. It is definitely a must place to visit if you are planning a trip to Napier. 10/10

    Interesting tour and so pleased we took the advice of friends as we didn't want to be travelling on busy buses with others.
