Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tour went for around 2 hours starting at the Cadman’s Cottage located at The Rocks. Our guide shared several stories of each location, which were interesting and sharing person photos of visions of spirits that had been observed on previous tours. It was a great way to end my trip learning history of these old buildings and stopping for a quick drink at the most Haunted Pub in Australia after the tour had finished. The Hero of Waterloo which was part of the tour. Beautiful old building. I didn’t witness anything myself, but it was noisy so not sure if this made a difference. Had a great time.

Such a great night, filled with entertaining accounts of history, and tales of what life in the Rocks would have been like for our ancestors.
I went with my 10 year old son, and he loved it (although he was a little sensitve around the harbour bridge area - regarding the treatment of Indigenous Australians back then, and the general feelings felt there) it was educational for him, and brought awareness to how far we have come. Also, two adults and three teenagers were with us in our party plus other guests. Even the teenagers enjoyed the tour :)
I am quite spiritual, and had many feelings throughout the tour. Some of our photos were very strange in comparison to what I saw with my eyes, and the images being different, but no clear indications of presences.
Tour Guide was amazing - interesting, he was interested himself - you can tell he loves the tours and talking to guests, educational, funny too!

The company is not flexible nor forthcoming with last minute emergency cancellations. I felt sick 24 hours before the tour. I even wrote an email requesting extension but I was declined any form of compensation. I lost $175 thanks to the company policy. I was hoping to pay a bit extra to secure an extension but the answer was a straight NO. I would not recommend booking the ticket unless you are 100% made up of steel and will not get ill.

We found this a very interesting tour and a great way to start off our weekend at The Rocks.
I love history so if you do too you won't be disappointed.
John was very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour which made for a fun tour.
Sydney has some excellent (and sometimes sad) history and walking to sites where events took place makes it all the more interesting.
CV19 still has some restrictions on access to some sites however it is what it is.

The Rocks ghost tour is a fun and interesting way to view this unique neighborhood of Sydney. John was entertaining and great at leading the group through the dark streets and spooky history of the Rocks.

The Rocks Ghost Tour…What are you hoping for? Ghosts? The paranormal? Spirit orbs you can capture on camera? Spooky stories that have you itching to get home so you can curl up in the warmth of your bed? This tour isn’t for you….

As long-term paranormal aficionados, we have joined ghost tours in Ararat (VIC), Beechworth (VIC), Port Arthur (TAS), Geelong (VIC), and Melbourne (VIC), in addition to overseas ghost-hunting jaunts.

We never join a tour with huge expectations. We merely hope for the opportunity to explore, a few silly jumps and scares and some incredible true-life tales. We’re not running around with EMF meters, spirit boxes and smudge sticks, but we love that eerie feeling,…you know - when things dont feel ‘quite right’. In the case of The Rocks Ghost Tour, I’m sorry to say that it doesn’t deliver.

If wandering the streets of Sydney and listening to some theatrical/historical tales is your cup of tea, this is for you. Ghosts…macabre tales…hauntings…spooks and jumps…not really.

The staff are lovely and do their best, but there is nothing remotely scary or ghostly about this tour.

Had a really great evening with John our guide. Very informative, made us feel comfortable. Even if you don't believe in ghosts the history and beauty of the area is wonderful. Had some strange coincidence's during the night , even my teenager thought it was a great night. Would highly recommend it.

The tour was very informative and showed a lot of historic areas of the rocks. John was engaging and clearly sharing his knowledge of the area. He was an excellent guide.
We would highly recommend this tour.
It has history and invites you to think of the supernatural.

Even though we didn’t see any actual ghosts, (sort of glad about that) we loved hearing the spooky stories about the gruesome murders of the Rocks. Got to see some places of Sydney that I never knew existed.
