      Ryan, the Crime Tour King
      OMG Ryan was amazing! I was sceptical at first I would have a plausible experience but as soon as Ryan started the tour, it was full of facts, amazing story telling, puns, laughs, amazing vibes - the works. This man was destined to be a tour guide! This is one of the best activities I did during my stay in Sydney from Adelaide. I will be doing this again next time I visit Sydney!

      Fun night with the Fabulous Ryan
      A fabulous tour to do for something different & to get a great background on the history of The Rocks. My friend & I were a little lost finding the initial meeting place but our fabulous host Ryan called me to find out where we were & kindly guided us to the group. He had to call us twice - very much appreciated & going above & beyond to ensure we didn't miss out. Such a fun evening & Ryan's storytelling was full of interesting facts & lots of laughs.

      Harbour experience
      Great way to spend a couple of hours seeing Sydney harbour on the water All while learning about some of its dark past, while sipping on coffee and munching on delicious cookies provided by Sarah!

      Jade is AMAZING
      Jade is AMAZING at her job. She has a great sense of humour, her dark humour included. Also being involved in re-enactments of stories that happened was also fun. I know the group I was with was a bit hard to please and 3 groups left early even though there was 15 mins left, but Jade did her best to uplift the stiffs, so I do feel sorry for her in that regard as Jade has such a bubbly and happy nature. Again, Jade is AMAZING at her job and her story telling, and I do plan to go again in the near future. Thank you once again, Jade. 10/10

      Lark in the Park with Stories that are Dark
      Our host was Ryan and we absolutely loved him! He was super insightful with all the stories, and had such a great dry, dark sense of humour. It was just my mum and I on the tour, and it allowed for such a personalised telling of the stories. The stories were interesting, the puns were better, and the weather happened to be marvellous - just an all around excellent time.

      Great night out in Sydney
      Ryan who led the tour on the 6th April was superb and never faltered in his telling of any of the stories. He led us all over the Rocks and the funny jokes he would throw in at the end of a story lightened the mood from the terrible story itself. I can't speak more highly of the tour & this guide was brilliant!! Cheers for the interesting evening.

      Past true crime relived
      This took us to a range of places we would never have gone otherwise. The tour guide was lovely helping us learn about some sad true crimes that happened in the area. Great evening out, would now be interested in doing more tours to learn more.

      Secrets from a Dark Past
      Jade was our tour guide, a very enthusiastic young lady who told the tales of a time gone past very well. Time was timed well and some interaction from those gathered. For a young English lass, she did her homework well. 10/10 Jade

      BACK STREETS OF THE ROCKS
      A different way to explore some of the back streets of The Rocks (with a couple of great photo opportunities stops), while hearing some interesting tales of crime and the law in years gone by. Our tour guide, Jade, was enthusiastic. personable and quite theatrical in delivering her versions of the crime stories from around the area ... the "reenactments" were a fun addition to the night. It should be noted though that the tour is really NOT largely on flat ground - there are quite a number of stairs, up-hill uneven roads, lots of poorly lit areas and only one location where you can sit down for a breather if you need it.

      Interesting night walking tour through the Rocks.
      We decided to do the Dark Stories tour as it was something unique and we were not disappointed. Emily, our tour guide, was friendly, welcoming and informative. Would highly recommend if you are looking for something a bit different.

      True fun with True Crimes Sydney
      Our Dark Stories guide. Jade, was knowledgeable and kept the group moving at a nice pace. The true crime stories gave a fascinating insight into Sydney’s lifestyles over the last couple of centuries. Getting the group’s involvement by role playing was great fun. Recommend!

    Faren was a great tour guide! It was a nice different thing for a night out. Fun facts and great storytelling!
    We started on time and the mix of the group was good, a young group of friends and another couple. I've been living for some years now in Sydney and both my husband and me really enjoyed it and recommend it!

    Got a voucher as a bday gift from a dear friend, loved the idea!

    We met our RG Guide, Jack who set the scene for our Group of family and friends. We were allowed to walk at a comfortable pace as we had different levels of fitness. Some brought a purse size torch as some areas were quite dark and where we walked there were some uneven surfaces. Even the moon peeping through the clouds failed to cast any shadows. Having said that, listening to Jack relay the Razor Gang Stories along the prominent streets of that era, it gave us a sense of what life would have been like at night when Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh ruled the roost! Thoroughly enjoyed the stories about the Razor Gang era and also discovered a wonderful area to explore during the day.
    Beautiful art deco buildings along the way and I'm sure they have a story to tell as well.
    Jack our Guide was amazing, had a lot of historical knowledge to share and was very pleasant and accommodating for those of us who were a bit slow along the steeper part of the tour. Big Thanks to him for making the Tour a success.
    Make sure you wear comfy shoes as there are a few steep hills and stairs. Having a small torch to guide where you are walking is a must and also a small bottle of water to hydrate along the way.
    Highly recommend this Tour, it is well worth it!

    Enjoyed this experience, Elizabeth was an excellent guide who explained the bloody history of the Razor Gangs clearly and dramatically. Darlinghurst by night was quiet but moody, it was easy to imagine the criminals being spoken about prowling its streets.

    The only word of caution I'd add is that for people like ourselves with dodgy knees it's more challenging than you might expect; Darlinghurst is a series of undulating slopes, and it can be a bit of a haul going up and down them on a warm humid evening. As a result the tour went well over its 90 minute length, I imagine because we were slowing it down. Be prepared.

    Really great tour. Our tour guide Caitlin had the story down pat, including exact dates and told it in an very entertaining way. My mum, who has read and watched all the razor gang shows/books she can get her hands on, still learnt a few new things. Great Mother's Day experience.

    Terrific afternoon walk and history of the razor gang wars of Sydney early last century. Caitlan our guide was very enthusiastic & full of knowledge of all the characters & events of these times, Seeing the area , the houses and walking around the lanes & alleyways and added to the atmosphere of the time. Thoroughly recommend this experience. Even us Sydneysiders can learn a lot about our own backyard.

    Kaitlyn was an amazing host, guiding us through the streets of Darlinghurst with unbelievable, intriguing stories of the Razorwar gangs. Kaitlin’s knowledge was extensive. Her delivery was engaging and she had us all hanging on every word! It was fascinating. Thanks Kaitlin! Highly recommended.

    This tour is absolutely worth doing. It’s very interesting to know about the characters that made up the razor gangs in the early 1900s. Our lovely guide Jess was fantastic in describing the stories and painting such a colourful picture that you were completely engrossed in her story telling. Walking through the streets where these stories took place was like going back in time. Jess, thank you for a great tour. Highly recommend it, folks!

    I really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the events and places she was talking about.
    As a amateur history buff it was wonderful to be able to stand in the spots that these events took place.I have no hesitation in recommending this tour to any one that has a interest in Sydney’s darker past.

    Paige, was amazing. So much knowledge for a young one! Answered all our questions and was honest when she wasnt sure. (Which wasnt often!) The stories were amazing.. the streets and houses i'd never even noticed spending so much time in that area in my younger days. The pace was perfect, but make sure you wear comfy shoes.
    Amazing that all that went on less than 100 years ago!
    Definitely recommend, but hot tip make sure you've watched Underbelly:Razor or read up on the history to bring the stories to real life!
