Ross, our guide, was a fantastic storyteller and extremely entertaining as he guided us through D Division of Pentridge Prison. Great historical knowledge of the place and plenty of stories that revealed the extensive history of Pentridge Prison.

Tour guide was good, but stories were not always relevant to Melbourne ghosts. Nothing overly scary or revealing about Melbourne's past. Was a bit of a skeptic going in, but kept an open mind, even more of a skeptic now though.

Great tour with an excellent guide. Takes you through the hidden laneways and encounter some ghostly tales on the way. Was busy due to other events going on in the city but would definitely recommend.

The central Melbourne ghost tour is more a gruesome history and back alleys tour than a ghost tour, but still good (3.5 out of 5 or better for non-believers). The things we used to do to each other on those pitch black, unsupervised evenings! :-(...More
