Took the tour with Matt and a largish group. Wondered around the alleyways and back streets of Melbourne. Enjoyed the stories, not all scary but certainly great stories of the history of the city.

We arrived at the 'i' at 8.33am and there was not a single person there! I proceeded to call Lantern Ghost Tours and spoke to someone called Sandra who told me that I was late and that the tour had left! It was 8.34pm. The ticket said meet under the 'i' at 8.30pm. Granted we were 3 minutes late but... More

A great way to tour the city at night. Down laneways (you probably wouldn't go on your own). Excellent tour guide..thank you Matt. Dramatically told stories of the history of Melbourne including murders and/or ghosts that have been sighted or heard in the different locations. Great value for money too!

This was a good tour, the stories were interesting but the ghost sightings stories were a little hard to swallow. And I'm a believer! I would dinarely recommend this even if you don't believe in spooks. It's an interesting thing to do of an evening. Make sure you meet at the info centre across from the young and jacksons pub,...

Our tour guide, Stephanie, was very friendly and funny. She told all the stories really well and was able to answer any questions the group threw at her.

It was our Christmas party and we combined the tour with the dinner at Young and Jackson's.
