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.

Very informative ghost tour

Lauren was very clear and concise as she spoke and it was a pleasure to be on the tour. While I am not a believer in the paranormal, it was very interesting to hear about the history of the Rocks. Would highly recommend.

Fun and informative Ghost Tour
Feb 2021 • Family
Fun tour of Sydney's Rocks area with interesting 'supernatural' stories. It I took three children aged 12, 15 and 17 and they all had a fantastic time. It's also a great way to see some areas of the Rocks that I didn't know existed. Highly recommend the tour.

Beautiful night for a walk ...
Yes lovely night for a walk around the Rocks over Easter, great under lights and all the harbour activity ......but the tour was not a history tour of the rocks if that’s what you’re expecting. Really just about some recent ghost stories at 5-6 spots. Guide was knowledgeable of the story and ensured people’s safety.

Disappointing

Being the oldest city in Australia we expected stories from the 1800’s not modern times. The tour guide had very little knowledge when people asked questions. We found out more from a google search

Great Tour
Mar 2021
Even though the history of Sydney is rather short in comparison to European cities, the tour offered lots of interesting and scary facts about The Rocks and all the ghosts that are still around (if you want to believe in them). The guide was excellent and had the right mix of being scary and funny. The Rocks is really a special place in Sydney with all its narrow lanes, stairs, and old buildings - at night it even feels a bit spooky. Overall, highly recommendable and a lot of fun - also a good workout.

A very enjoyable experience
Feb 2021
My wife and I had a wonderful time!, people often complain 'we didn't see any ghosts!', 'where are the ghosts?'. People this is a historical tour more than anything!

We had Ally as our guide and enjoyed hearing alot of interesting stories from different areas/buildings we walked past as well as ghost stories from other buildings and general history of the area.

Definitely makes for a fun evening, you will be surprised by what is in your own backyard.
