    Have done the tour before but changes. Always an amazing tour with knowledgeable guides. Lots of fun and like us a bit of action.

    Our tour guide Robert was great. He had lots of knowledge, stories (both intriguing and funny) and perfect timing to keep you looking around.... wandering. Definitely recommend doing.

    It was a cold night, drizzling rain. We were in a group of 20 people with a couple of lanterns to light the way. Scene set for a spooky experience.
    Guide was informative but spoke to fast and was difficult to understand most of the time.
    Only thing to make it better would be seeing a ghost!

    It was pretty amazing! We arrived at the historic sight at 8:30am and left at 10:30pm. The tour grants access to other areas not open during the day. The only disappointing thing was the lighting when walking through the sight. The lantern bearers where all huddled together and not spread out which was rather dangerous. A few people started using their mobile phones to light the way so we followed suit. Still a really enjoyable experience though.

    The guide tried to make it scary, but I found the tour rather mundane. it was still extremely interesting nonetheless.

  • 04-Apr-2016

    This was a great fun tour, the kids were nervous going to bed that night but still really enjoyed themselves. Well worth the money.

    My husband and I enjoy the ghost tour. Something different from the day trip tour.
