          Interesting Orientation
          The tour itself was a good one to take as it oriented you to the highlights of the island. Unfortunately, our tour guide/driver Max (Pinetree Tours) put a damper on the experience for the whole bus by telling everyone not to ask him questions as he'd answer all during his monologue or he'd get cross and go home. He repeated everything twice and we weren't sure if he was speaking or had a recording going. He tried to be funny in his delivery but came across as passive/aggressive. Asked him a simple question at the end of the tour about another booking and well... not answered anyway. Still, information was interesting and gave a good brief overview of the island's history.

          Good for first time experience
          Experience was ok - but catered for large crowds. If you were lucky enough to be seated at the front all was ok, but if you were at the back or side it was difficult to see or understand what the DJ was saying as the sound system wasn't great. If you've seen a similar show and aren't a huge fan of fried fish and salads you won't be missing out on much. Good if it's a first time experience though.

          Fish fry
          Disappointing that in winter the only warm dish is the fish. We are outside, 17 degrees and served numerous salads. Not good enough for the amount of people and price.. How hard is it to warm up the rice or sweet potato dishes? Would not recommend.

          No transfers provided
          On arrival I was told that my tour would not be Friday as I had booked but Saturday. Then I was told the bus doesn't drop off at my accommodation. So I did not get any transfers, and the tour was a day late. However the guide driving the bus was excellent.

          A must do.
          Interesting dinner held in 3 homes of Norfolk Islanders with informative talks. Dessert to die for. A good invite into Island living.

          Fish Fry is amazing!
          We went on the organised Fish Fry tour with Pinetree Tours but made our own way to "Orn Da Cliff" by car because we had our own transport. The meal was excellent, and the venue is great, all undercover, but they also have an outdoor venue as well. Great entertainment by Trent, a local, but originally from Pitcairn Island, plus they had some local girls doing traditional Tahitian dancing. The site is at the top of the cliff, as the venue title suggests, and you will see amazing views and sunsets from there. Thoroughly recommend!

          Norfolk Island Progressive Dinner
          Went to the Progressive Dinner whilst on a N.I. tour with a group of women. The 3 different families warmly welcomed us, fed us with lovely food and spoke of life on the island. Very different & interesting night.

          Night at the Fish Fry on Norfolk
          Went to the Fish Fry whilst on a group tour. Lovely location. Lots of people catered for so had to queue for the food. Good assortment of salad & local specialties. The fish was excellent & plentiful. Guy with a guitar entertained us with songs plus local girls danced.

          An enjoyable way to spend an evening.
          A good overall dining experience with the Tahitian influence now firmly incorporated into the Norfolk Island culture.

          Not a bad night.
          Pleasant evening. Meal was ok. All ran like clockwork. Not much interesting information or stories told. It felt a bit like the entree and main meal hosts were going through the motions. The island has a lot of history an a unique lifestyle but this knowledge was not really imparted.

          What a wonderful night! It was the best fish I have ever tasted! The salads were lovely and the entertainment first class. Staff were all very hospitable and made all the guests feel right at home. I loved everything about the night.

          Progressive dinner recommended but with a few adjustments
          I love the idea of the local community opening their doors to share home-cooked meals with visitors. It's a generous gesture for the benefit of both. However, whilst our experience was mostly okay I would like suggest a few prospective improvements. Firstly, it would be good to have drinking water available with the main meal. The wine and juice were appreciated but carafes of water would be a good addition. Secondly, I would recommend that insect repellent be provided where there are lots of mosquitoes (or alert people beforehand to bring their own). We were on the island for a week (and came equipped with repellent) but were only attacked once during that time and it was at the home in which we had dessert. I suspect that there may have been water nearby. Thirdly, while it was interesting to hear the grandfather of the host of the main meal talk about his whaling experience the talk could be curated to remove some of the gory details, and to minimise the memory lapses that the dear gentleman suffered. The host should have provided some assistance during these lapses. Having said all of that, none of these matters are deal breakers and can easily be addressed. I still recommend the experience.

        Ghost Tour Dinner at $95pp. Unfortunately, it was raining on the night so we did not have the lantern walk or historic home tour as it was deemed not to be safe.
        Therefore, the tour was significantly cut short. The meal was pathetic. Two thin small slices of beef, two baked chat potatoes cut in half, two slivers of carrot, a tablespoon of beans and sauce – ALL COLD. There was also the smallest piece of pavlova that could have been sniffed up your nose. Apart from these problems the tour was totally unimpressive.

        So get on a bus at hotel (Seaside), then drive down the road to Kingston. At number 9 Quality Row, we get out, We are greeted by a ghost chicken. Then an old lady ghost comes out and tells us to follow her.

        Incidentally at end of the tour we drop her off at the cemetery where we learn where her grave is if we want to visit and that she is 24 years old. The actress does an amazing job though throughout the dinner and tour but you are left wondering, surely they could have found a closer to 24 years of age actress, a surely ghosts don't age, and if they did wouldn't she be in skeleton form now.

        The ghost has to do some waitering. The cost of living in a graveyard is not cheap you know. The entree was garlic toast. Not only was it delicious but the ghost had ensured we would be safe from vampires that night (she didn't tell us this, I just surmised it).

        Main course - corned silverside with white sauce on it with three potatoes, some lettuce, cucumber and the ghost's idea of a practical joke, the most disgusting food on the planet, onions. It was very nice, and honestly as good as anything else I ate on the island. The ghost had to clear plates away between courses too. To finish off our meal she bought out chocolate lava cake, with chocolate topping, cream and blueberries, also yummy!

        Then we got back on what the ghost called a horseless carriage and left No. 9 Quality Row. Then we get on and off a few times (we're given lanterns) around the historic ruins of Kingston, such as the hospital (the bus driver plays the doctor),and end up at the most haunted house in Australia and I think third in the world. We sit out back in the servant's quarters and the ghost tells us some stuff. The night was a lot of fun and very informative. Plus a great way to see Kingston after dark.

        I'll provide this info here too as I couldn't find it anywhere and I wanted to know before I booked. Other than the meal part, are there any other differences between this Ghost tour and a rival company's Lantern Lit Ghost Tour being this one was $95 and theirs' $45? First I'll say, I did do both tours and they are both worth doing.

        Main differences - Lantern Lit G T goes into the cemetery. The guide on that one (dressed in a clock and talks like The Count of Sesame Street at times) does actually mention the ghost from Pinetree's tour while there. You also visit Colleen Mccullogh's grave and a few others.

        Lantern Lit G T visits both houses in the duplex that is the most haunted house in Australia. But honestly you're not missing much in the right duplex as it is all ruins inside. Unless you encounter something in there, which one old lady did (felt a presence) and returned to sit in the bus.

        The lanterns on Ghost Dinner are better producing light wise than on Lantern Lit G T, there's look more authentic to the era though. The guide does have a better one though so you can see her when she is talking or to follow her, So you do get better photos on the Dinner one. Although it's still dark and only lantern light so they are still limited. Lantern Lit G T doesn't go to the well beside the duplex for safety reasons due to their lack of lantern light (hey, I asked).

        Ghost Dinner has more stops to explore with the lanterns in Kingston than Lantern Lit G T does. However Lantern Lit does instead of just going down Taylor's Road like Ghost Dinner bus does, goes via Queen Elizabeth Ave, Collins Head Road, Rooty Hill Road and does stop at times to talk about non and convict era ghosts on the way to Kingston, such as an old lady hitchhiker.

        Lantern Lit stops in the Kingston Pier area where shots of Port (or grape juice if you prefer) along with chocolates with orange in them are passed around. Lantern Lit jumps between being a more serious ghosts are real experience to the host telling lame dad jokes such as "we're about to cross to the other side (pause) of the road." Where as Ghost Dinner is more like it's a show.

        Ghost Dinner is better, but remember you're paying $50 more. But I would highly recommend doing both. There's actually another called Twilight Ghost Tour Norfolk Island History and Genealogy as well, I didn't do that one but from what I could read up on it (like all these tours there isn't much info) they use instruments to try and find ghosts. Besides three with Ghost Tour in the title, Pinetree's Sound and Light Tour is narrated by various ghosts as you sit in a bus and are driven around Kingston at night while the bus lights up various buildings and actors re-enact the past as the ghosts tell the story. I did that one and can recommend it. I didn't do 1856 the Untold Story but it also seems to be a similar concept.

        We went with Pinetree Tours Ghost Tour & Dinner, hosted by the ghost of Elizabeth White Robertson, who died 11th January 1847. The tour left by bus from Pinetree's depot in Burnt Pine and our meal was eaten in the servant's quarters at one of the houses in Quality Row. After the meal, the bus took us back towards the wharf at Kingston Pier, where we visited the ruins of the hospital and surgeons' quarters before going back to No. 2 Quality Row to visit the ruins of the Civil Officer's Quarters. Lots of ghost stories were recounted along the way.

        the "Ghost" our presenter was well informed about the happens and people of the first settlers and then the convicts.
        It was a very enjoyable evening.

        This was such a fun night! We were greeted by our ghost host for the evening and after dinner we were all given lanterns and walked around the ruins of the gaol, and the hospital at Kingston while being told stories of those who have encountered ghosts in these buildings. The river and the ghost had great senses of humour, which was topped off when we dropped the ghost back to the cemetery at the end of the tour.
