Very enjoyable tour led by a knowledgeable guide who delivered the stories of ghostly sightings amongst interesting historical facts with aplomb. No ghosts but an interesting tour with some access to places not usually accessible. Always good to play tourist in ones own environment, there is always something new to learn.

Attended on a Saturday night and it was quite interesting. The guide was full of energy and very good at telling the stories. I didn't expect to see any ghosts but all the stories are great! If it was $10 cheaper I would have given 5 stars.

Did the ghost tour on a beautiful evening in Sydney. Maxine our guide is very passionate and tells a great story. Whilst I didn't find the tour scary, I did find it incredibly informative and given that The Rocks is one of the oldest settled areas in Australia, there was some amazing old buildings from that era. Well worth the... More

I took this tour recently and it was entertaining, however also educational. We learnt quite a few things about old Sydney town and The Rocks that we would not have otherwise known. Whilst there were of course stories of ghosts it was part history lesson as well. Our host Rowan was excellent, and kept us entertained for the best part... More

I'm glad we did it to say we did. But you walk yourself everywhere people were getting exhausted. And it was quite boring. But get to see some beautiful old buildings.

If you want a more gruesome history of the Rocks then head out on a ghost tour. Starting at Cadmans Cottage you head up and down quite a few lots of steps over the next 2 hours so be prepared with decent shoes. James the tour guide was great. Remember you are walking around and through peoples homes and dont... More

The Ghost tour at the Rocks was a great idea. It was a fun way of looking into the area in more depth, and of learning a little more about the stories of ordinary people who lived there. Our guide Lachlan was energetic and entertaining, although the ghosts chose to stay undercover. This tour is not for the feint hearted,... More

Had an informative and enjoyable walking tour with our host Lachlan. It was fun and Lachlan got us into the 'spirit' of things with his suitably macabre sense of humour. If planning a trip to The Rocks - make some time for this - there are lots of pubs to go to after to discuss the 'events' of the evening...!... More
