We enjoyed the tour very much. The “spooky” bits were quite fun but we felt it would have been just as good as a night history tour which was delivered really well. Our gentleman Tour Guide was good; knew his stuff and delivered well. We...More

We were so looking forward to this tour. As there was only two of us, it was cancelled, that can't be helped. If you're looking to go on this tour, perhaps book in peak holiday season or with friends.

It was a cold wet night which added to the ghostly ambience. The tour guide's stories were entertaining and the local history stories interesting. The old churches take on a completely different look at night. It would have been good to do more inside buildings....More

This tour was not only interesting but most informative of the history and the buildings of Launceston. The guide was most informative and an easy paced walk, although there is one slightly steep part.. Good value. Lasted about an hour and a half.

Fun walk in spooky dark places with some historical facts mixed in with ghost stories. Informative, but above all fun whether you believe in ghosts or not. The tour lady was friendly and generous with her time. A well-worth activity to do in Launceston, particularly...More

I would've loved to have done the ghost tour however with the low numbers it was to be cancelled. A full refund is to be provided and staff were more than happy to do so. Maybe next time!

I was looking forward to this ghost tour but it was really just a lack luster walking tour of Launceston late at night. I could overlook the fact that the organiser of the tour didn’t let us know whether or not the tour was running...More

We enjoyed the ghost tour in Launceston on Sat 13th May 2017 after our dinner at the Royal Oak Tour where we had to meet the group out the front. It was a calm, full moon and clear night when we went walking up and...More

In an attempt to make the experience more 'spooky' every indoor area visited is kept in absolute darkness. There were a number of steps at each place and we were instructed at each time how many steps there were. Some were uneven and had us...More

My friend got an interesting picture with her phone and it was clean so I don’t know. Apparently there’s been some real spooky images taken before on the tour so keep your mind open and your eyes peeled and who knows 🧐
