Booked the kids ghost tour. Myself and 3 children had a very enjoyable experience. Jo our tour guide did a wonderful job keeping us well informed. Would highly recommend booking a Ghost Crime Tour.

The Kids Ghost Tour of the Old Adelaide Gaol was an entertaining and informative experience for myself and my 12D. Jo (our tour guide) was hilarious, passionate and made the tour so much better than what we were expecting. Even if you don't "believe" in the paranormal, the history lesson is enough for you to do your own research when you get home.

The best place to start is well the start.
When we got seated into the room upstairs, the person hosting the 4 hour session stated to explain how to use the equipment to what she hardly didn’t know how to explain she keep changing on how everything worked. She then went into saying that we can use apps if we want to but shouldn’t be using our Apps for the evening.

Then she gave us the equipment and told as to go off on our own, problem was that there was people including my party that haven’t even been there we asked her just to give us a quick guide of where stuff was to what she then turned into a long story about her experiences around the place upstairs that wasn’t including the rooms in the basement to what we didn’t know about until almost half way through the night.

When we decided to go into the nursery to investigate more the host came in to give us another equipment to use, when she found out we were using an app she wasn’t happy about it telling us that it’s not good and that, ( the app we use has been used, tested and verified by more than 4 different investors from different groups over Australia and the world) the equipment she gave us she asked if we knew what it was “sprit box” i told her what it was to that she said no and then said the exact same thing that I said it was.

The whole time there me and my friend felt unsafe and uncomfortable not because of the ghost but because of the guide, the whole night felt very very off putting.

We’ve been to different places with many different groups and host but by far this was the worst experience/host

This tour really needs work. Very boring and lacking in content, mostly wandering around pointing out spots where apparently photos had been taken with ghosts in them. There was no in depth story telling or interesting history.

Certainly worth doing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to provide a great deal of history about the gaol that the kids were able to understand. It managed to give the kids a bit of a scare once the sun went down. Would definitely look into doing one of the adult tours! 4 stars!

Doris aka Jo and the 2 volunteers were absolutely brilliant for the Adelaide Clipper ship Ghost tour. You could tell it wasn’t something they do to pay the mortgage ( especially the volunteers!) they enjoyed sharing their knowledge and experience. Made sure everyone was included, comfortable & enjoying their experience. I would absolutely recommend this tour to everyone who loves history, ghost 👻 tours, or just mildly curious.

After doing a fair number of ghost tours with other groups here in Adelaide we decided to use our Great State Voucher on the Kapunda Ghost Crime Tour!

Worth doing, Laura was excellent and full of facts as a tour guide. The stories and deaths in the town topped it off and very interesting hearing of the towns past! Tour went longer than expected so we can say we got our moneys worth on the night! The North Kapunda Hotel was very interesting and we also got in the Chapel St Theatre in Kapunda!

Highly recommend!

Tour supposed to start at 8. Eventually someone turned up at 9:10 and was incredibly rude. Everyone who had waited for over an hour just left. Appalling. I’m certainly never booking with them again
