Moved to Newcastle 6 years ago and had no idea of its convict/ slightly gruesome origins. Renata was an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable on both the history of Newcastle and Paranormal investigations. She led us all around Newcastle oldest sections and supplemented the tour with pictures and artists depictions on what Newcastle looked like once upon a time. The ghostly... More

More a history tour, with a few interesting ghost stories thrown in. Nonetheless, a fantastic and eye opening insight into the convict history of Newcastle and how ghost stories have been founded on this past. Was good to see some sites of Newcastle that are not often visited, and learn about their secrets.

The tour guide Renata is super informed, knowledgeable and personable. Although we did... More

Excellent evening. Fun time with friends. Need to book well in advance. Small groups preferable. Winter nights are the best. Very informative. A shame the tour is not longer.

This tour was very informative and very professional. Renata was fantastic. We learnt a lot of about the history of Newcastle. We were very impressed that she did the tour for only two of us. Cheryl and Jeff

I went with a couple of friends to the wallsend cemetery and the guides were fun. They lend you ghost finding equipment to search around the cemetery with and tell you some interesting ghost stories. A bit of fun I wouldn't go taking it too seriously.
