90 minute walking tour around the alleyways, & inner laneways of Launceston.The main tour is a Ghost Tour which does incorporate some adult stories of rape – hangings & murder. These are true stories, they have been handed down over generations. We have purposely tried not to embellish them in any way other that to portray “The Facts”.

Bethany our guide was great at building a story as well as explaining the history of the places we visited and pointing items of interest. The tour is fast paced walking, and kept us entertained from start to finish. Lots of places visited with lots of photo opportunities. Good value for money.

This is a fun way to spend the evening, see the town, learn a little history and maybe even a ghost!

The info re Launceston was good - the ghost bits were just annoying. Lots of 'maybe.....,possibly.....,you might feel......, I heard that......., some one said... I was after entertainment! Only do this tour if you are into paranormal - the guide is sweet but serious. And very very suggestable!

We were a group of 6 - 2 adults and 4 kids aged 8-13. It was definitely suitable for kids this age. Wasn't terribly scary but a very enjoyable thing to do while in Launceston and really gave you an insight into what it was like back in the 1800s. A very enjoyable night walking tour of a lovely, historic... More

We never expect to see apparitions or get our hair pulled on ghost tours, but we are usually assured of a great history lesson. No doubt a place such a Launceston would have some form of dark history and we certainly were regailed with stories of the past and gained a real insight into some of the city's landmarks and...

We did a Ghost Tour in Launceston a few weeks ago when in the fair city as we always like to hear the ghost stories about the cities we visit and we know there were many crazy things going on in Tasmania in the past. The tour was good, not exceptional, our guide was informative but not very animated, sounding... More

I know a lot of people enjoy this tour. I was a little disappointed with the Ghost walk.I am very open minded about ghosts and even toyed with not going as I thought I may feel unnerved by the end. I feel it may depend on who takes you on the walk. There was no real atmosphere or information with... More
