Excellent guides, very enthusiastic and adept storytellers over the 90 min (1-2km) lantern lit walking tour. This is a creepy location and worth a second visit to do the 3-hr paranormal investigation as a follow up.More

We had no expectations of encountering ghosts but would have liked some atmosphere. The group was too big and the sing songy voice and over theatrical guide did not create the right atmosphere. The ghost tour at the Hobart penitentiary chappel far surpassed this experience.More
