Overview

    What to Expect
    After meeting your guide in The Rocks, starts your ghoulish walk in the mists of time, when this neighborhood was home to sailors, prostitutes, sly-grog shops (where cheap liquor was sold illegally), opium dens and many nefarious characters. Notorious gangs such as the Rocks Push and the Razor double-crossed their victims and rivals, sometimes going as far as murder. Hear the tales of unfortunate souls whose ghosts are rumored to roam the streets as your guide leads you through their spooky stories and former haunts.

    As you walk through the darkened streets, your guide reveals theories about lingering mysteries and unsolved murders that have perplexed investigators for decades. Discover how sites such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Susannah Place, Dawes Point, Atherden Street and the Orient Hotel are connected to one another through these tales.

    Expect to stroll at a leisurely pace for about one mile (1.6 km) during your tour, with frequent stops for photo ops. After an eerie evening of ghost tales and possibly some sightings, your tour ends when your guide returns you to your starting point.

    I'm not sure why there are a lot of bad reviews...I personally enjoyed The Lantern Ghost Tour. I've always been into witches and anything supernatural. I thought this tour was great as we went to many sites in such a short period of time. Our tour guide Alison was magnificent

    Took the tour last night and saw parts of Sydney didnt know existed. Ruins under a building for instance. Our guide Allison was professional and entertaining. Dinner package at Observatory Hotel for only $15 per head was hot and fresh and fuel for walking.
