The best guided tour we've ever been on. Amazing old institution, a terrific guide, lots of laughter, and appropriate humour. No ghosts that we saw, but really, that's not the point. Mayday Hills is a beautiful site, now owned (I believe) by LaTrobe University.

LOVED this tour, was the highlight of our stay in Beechworth, will definitely be coming back to do the tour again. Loved hearing the history of the buildings & the stories of the patients & staff.

The tour was well done with lots of information about May Day hills, balanced with entertainment and a great opportunity to have a good look around

I did the tour with a hens night group. Thankfully it wasn't one of the typical out of control type groups. The ghost tour was great! Craig our tour guide was fantastic! The history of the buildings are incredibly sad but fascinating. I def recommend any of the tours to everyone.

A ghostly tale of atrocity from our past. Strangely disturbing feelings and an eerieness that can make you shiver. Craig our "superintendant of the asylum" was full of ghostly tales and local history. A must do Beechworth experience.

Of the 10 of us that came ot Beechworth, only 5 were brave enough to do on this tour, but we had a great time! Yeah, it rained the entire time, but that only added to the atmosphere. The tour itself was interesting and the guide entertaining. Would love to come back again with the rest of my friends.

Mayday hills asylum was built in a time when things were built to a standard not a budget and it shows, the buildings are amazing. One thing that detracts from the atmosphere is because it was open till 1995 most of the old buildings have been retro fitted with modern touches. The ghost tour was good but wished the paranormal...

A friend of mine suggested we stop in at Beechworth and do a tour of the asylum on our way to Canberra. I was skeptical at first, but found the place extremely interesting. It was very run down thanks to LaTrobe Uni...however our tour guide, Bronwyn gave an interesting and informative tour. We can't wait to come back and do... More

Our nighttime Ghost Tour experience of the asylum was the highlight of our trip to Beechworth. Our guide Craig/Dr Jones created an excellent atmosphere with dramatic flair and eerie tales of the past. He worked well with the crowd; extremely patient and humourous. The tour was so intriguing that we searched the town for a book on the history of... More

Great storyteller who knew her subject and was able to give a few of the tour group quite a scare. Recommended to-do if you are in Beechworth
