Great tour! Yasmin is delightful and witty. Wear comfy shoes and don't worry, you'll walk into dim lighted corners of the town, but we weren't murdered.

If we had a tour leader that turned up it would have improved things. A group of 7 of us waited for the maitland crime tour from 15 minutes prior to the start time to 30 minutes after. No one turned up. They also do not have a number to call at 8pm at night to talk to someone.

Hi there, so sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately this was one of those rare occasions when several incidents occurred behind the scenes. I am sorry. We did receive your call on the evening and you were promptly refunded. Hopefully you'll give the tour another chance sometime in the future. Best Regards
