“Paranormal in Point Cook”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I was given the Ghost Tour/dinner package for Point Cook Homestead. It was a cool still night with huge full moon. I think the moon kept the ghosts away this particular evening. Our host was very knowledgeable regarding the paranormal as well as history of the homestead and the families that lived there. There was one instance inside the homestead where a picture flew off the wall without explanation. Apart from that no one experienced any "chills" nor did we see anything out of the ordinary. It was an enjoyable and informative evening.

Point Cook is definitely one of our most active tours, the Chirnsides seem to be very intrigued by us!

Great to hear you enjoyed your tour, I will pass your comments on to our guides.

“Gist Tour in Central Melbourne”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We went on the 8.30pm ghost tour departing from the information centre in Federation Square. Our tour guide was brilliant. She told us stories and facts in an interesting way. It was a freezing cold and windy night,,perfect for a ghost tour. We got to see possibly haunted places, and head about the poor little girl of Pink Lane. Compared to European ghost tours this is pretty tame, but is still very interesting and a great way to see a different side of the city.

“Ghost Tour with so much more”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The whole family had a great time learning about the history of Williamstown and the buildings/areas we see often. The knowledge and stories of the tour guide were extremely entertaining. So much so my teenage children also enjoyed the tour. We have also done the J-Ward tour and the Old Melbourne tour and are now planning to do the Altona Homestead Tour.

“Amazing, Fun and Worth While!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I took my partner on the J-Ward (Ararat) Ghost Tour for Easter. When we got there we were all informed of J-Wards past and what happened there. I admit I was a little freaked out being there at night. I was handed a K2 meter and off we went on the Ghost tour, exploring what J-Ward had to offer. Our tour guide Doug was so Brilliant! He was so knowledgeable and informative on what has happened there, telling us creepy stories which kept everyone on edge. When we went in to certain rooms, cells and even when Doug was telling us stories the K2 meter was going crazy! At the end of the tour they showed us a Video that was aired on TV in the 70's which showed people in there and a bit about them which left the tour on a high. Overall the experience that we had was one of the best things we have done and we will be defiantly going back! When we got home we were going through some pictures and saw that there was someone standing there in a few pictures that wasnt there on the tour. I guess if your a skeptic it is well worth doing and would strongly recommend this to anyone who is thinking about doing a tour! Thanks Doug for a great night :)
