I'm not really a ghost tour fan but my husband is so we booked this one. We had a group of 8 plus our guide Bronwyn who was dressed in period costume. The tour goes for approximately 2 hours and goes into many of the rooms in the asylum. Bronwyn's knowledge was amazing - she had answers to every question... More

Our tour guide Alex did an amazing job and delivered the history of the asylum in an informative fun way. We didn't have any 'experiences' but was well worth the visit to hear the history & stories.

Didn't know what to expect but was delighted that we went on this tour. It was certainly an eye opener and extremely interesting. You MUST do this if you're in the area. We booked before hand and the tour filled up very quickly. I still can't believe how patients were treated and how they lived in that asylum.

We had Stewart and his wife for our guides and they were fantastic! Had plenty of experiences and got some excellent historic info whilst we were there. We will definitely be returning for the sleepover!

Very informative tour guide, Bronwyn. Fascinating learning about the Aslyum, which sadly is in a sorry state structurally. Was hoping for spirit activity, but they decided not to visit our night.

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.
