The old City jail tour was not only interesting, but it was very enjoyable. Stephen the tour. guide was great. I thought the tour could've been a little longer, besides that it was definitely worth the money. I would definitely go back!

We were very disappointed in the Dungeon Tour. It was boring, hokey and uneventful. We were hoping for at least a bit of a scare. No ghosts in this dungeon which doesn't appear to have been built 200+ years ago. It was so boring not...More
