Really great tour that gave us all a good fright!! It was just Andrew, my friend and I which made the walk that much spookier!!!! Andrew was a outstanding tour guide and added (much needed) humour in the spookier parts of the walk. Keen to do the crime walk next time I am in Dunedin. Thanks so much Andrew for... More

What a great way to spend a cold dark winter's night - strolling the Northern Cemetery on a guided tour. We all really enjoyed ourselves and learnt all about Dunedin's important people who once graced the earth. We're keen to join Andrew on another Hair Raiser tour soon - that's how much we loved it!

This tour was a great way to become aquatinted with the city of Dunedin and to learn a little about the history. The guide was great. He was funny and interesting. Only thing that was annoying is that we thought the tour ended at The Scotia, a Scottish pub, but they have closed down. I didn't get my much hoped... More

Nice guy and great knowledge of the area but not as scary as I expected the whole thing to be. Except an underground basement, the rest of it wasn't scary. We went on the city tour I believe.

I had gone on a ghost tour many years before in Edinburgh, Scotland and this was my second ever ghost tour, coincidentally in the Scottish town of Dunedin. My mother and I both love horror movies and anything supernatural so this was a must-do for us. Our guide Andrew was knowledgeable and a great story-teller. We had 5 people in... More

My wife and I loved the underbelly tour and our stop at the cemetery. The guide was excellent with a great sense of humor. Well worth it.

Regardless if you believe in Ghosts or not....(we don't) if you enjoy intriguing historic tales, a good laugh..and perhaps a little spine tingle this is a must do in Dunedin NZ!!! We had a most wonderful hour and a half wondering the streets and back alleyways under the knowledgeable guidance of Michael...he's a funny guy, full of knowledge of Dunedin's... More

Fun tour to do late night in Dunedin. Andrew had a great balance of historical information, ghost stories and a touch of humor. Andrew doesn't beat you over the head with the supernatural and lets the atmosphere do the work. A great tour after the sun goes down so cemetery takes on it's personality as part of the tour. We...
