We did the ghost tour it was amazing. Not an insane amount of walking for those that aren’t able to walk a lot. Kate is a historian with amazing stories. A great storyteller. I didn’t want the tour to end. Thank you! Will return again.

Hi Tammy, Thank you for your review. I will pass on your kind words to Brynne. We really enjoy telling our tales and without wonderful walkers like you, we wouldn't get the chance. We look forward to having you along again.

A pleasant walk around town. Kirby, our host, was dynamic, enthusiastic and her stories were very well rehearsed. Learned a little more about the history of Victoria, and heard a few creepy tales. It was a busy night for tours, and Kirby navigated well.
