This would have to be the MOST awful tour we have ever booked on , the so called tour director needs to start his tour on time not 20 mins. late, when you finish at nearly 11pm up the other end of town, well lets...More

Tour guide Drew obviously loves Melbourne and its history. It's a ghost tour but also a trip through history- You'll discover that your favourite cafe is bang-smack in the middle of the old red light district, that your lunchtime chill spot is on top of...More

The Haunted Bookshop is a carefully curated collection by passionate historian Drew Sinton. This is not a job for him - it is his life’s work. He is unique and impressively knowledgeable. A bit of a recluse, Drew comes alive when sharing his lovely world....More

Fascinating history and stories of Pentridge Prison. Toula was a great host, the real deal. There were some annoying members of the group who made it difficult to engage with the area during the time to wander around and explore on your own but hardly...More

Waaaaay too many people! Could not hear the host over so many voices talking amongst themselves. We lasted an hour before we gave up due to not being able to hear. Perhaps much smaller groups (less than 20) would create better reviews. The small amount...More

The tour was very enjoyable. We arrived on time as the reservation stated - a bit confusing on the arrival, but right at 8:30 pm, the tour guide opened the door to the gift shop to let us in. Our tour had 6 people, which...More

Less scary than my grandmother. Boring and a waste of money, try going to Ararat instead for ghost tours that are better. The host is also a fake with no real experience of the occult or supernatural.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
