I am not a believer but the guide, Louise, was great. She told the stories brilliantly and clearly knew what she was talking about. Very patient with the group and funny. A wonderfully fun tour.

My partner and I really enjoyed the After Dark Package, and found the cost very reasonable.

The meal prior to the ghost tour at the Felons Resturant was excellent!

The tour was really well organized, engaging, and fun.

Unfortunately I didn't see any ghosts, but the church was incredibly creepy.

We have been twice now we loved it so much!! So spooky!! Loved walking around after dark with gas lanterns. I recommend to do the last tour of the night as you don't have other tours behind you, it makes you think you are all alone. A few ghosty experiences! My hubby does not like the parsonage, he was pretty freaked out!! So much fun and great history!!

We visited Port Arthur in Dec 2011 and wnet on the Ghost Tour. It was the worst weather possible, with thunder, lightning, howling wind and pouring rain. It may have been uncomfotable, but made the atmosphere truly frightening. The tour was only 10 minutes old, and I had taken two photos of the Church and was trying to take a close up when suddenly my camera froze and would simply not work. I could not even get the shutter to click. The camera refused to work for the rest of the tour. Once back at our hotel I checked it again and it was working. I checked my photos and found the shot attached. So I;ve attached the last photo of the Church that worked, then the shot that came out when my camera stopped working. What do you see in this photo ?????

I took my 9 year old son on the 8.30pm tour and we loved it! Our tour guide not only made the night informative, but she also had a good sense of humour and told us some wonderful stories of not only the people who had lived on the site, but also some of the ghostly experiences that had occurred there. My son was chosen to carry a lantern, which really added to his experience.

We were taken to 4 different spots and given a fascinating account of how things would have been back in the day.

It was very dark, so anyone who isn't sure footed might struggle unless they're carrying a lantern. We also had a family with a very small child in a pram who occasionally cried and whinged, so I wouldn't really recommend a late night tour for a child who would normally be in bed at that time. Maybe the 6.30pm tour would be better.

I highly recommend the tour and am so glad we did it.
