Fantastic. We didn’t see anything unusual on the tour, but when we got home and looked through our photos we had images of orbs, and apparitions of people in olden day clothing (who definitely were not there). Unexplainable but very exciting!

This tour is filled with interesting, historical information about Melbourne. You need to keep an open mind while wandering the streets. Our guide, Chloe, did a great job at keeping us engaged throughout the various stories.

It was a great way to have a look around the city, to get a different perspective on life in the early days of the city.

Charlotte was a fantastic guide with great humour. Lots of laughs on this tour!
