The tour was enjoyable and informative but not overly spooky. The tour was just over two hours and included history and stories of many locations around the grounds of the historical site.

We did this tour on the first night of visiting Port Arthur. Really friendly guide who made the evening interesting. It is quite an experience visiting at night and experiencing the tales of the supernatural. Felt safe throughout the evening

The whole tour was about learning the history of everything not really a ghost tour. The guide often tried to scare you but nothing paranormal. The tour was okay but won't return for another.More

The tour was more around knowing the stories about the people and paying respect to them. We didn't see any ghosts or anything spooky. I won't be going for it again as there was nothing special in the trip.More

We received this pass as a gift and what a gift it was. Two days is definitely the go, as you get a bit of ruins fatigue after looking at so many things. Visit the park again later in day near closing for the solitude...More

You're better off pre- booking as tours can get sold out depending on the time of the year.
