Very good tour. The guides/actors were excellent. Very interesting to see how prisoners lived back then. If jail was more like this now, we would probably have a lot less people doing crimes.

Very educational, fun and freaky. Deputy Clyde keeps you captivated from the very beginning to the end. It was awesome to actually sit in the prisoner's cells and imagine what life was like for them.

We had a large group with us and the kids varied in age from 1-11. Everyone enjoyed it. Listening to the "Deputy" explain the history & then allowing us to tour the facility was exciting. Perfect picture opportunity as well.

This is just an awesome tour full of information that "we" our generation could use an example in order to appreciate more the times we live now and take for granted. I will say this tho, criminals will think twice before committing a crime if our current system was like then. I don't recommend this tour for children under 2... More
