Join this tour in search of the lost souls lingering in hidden Sydney.  Your ghost tour includes a 90-minute walking tour with trained guides to help you see and feel the great history of Sydney.

    Lack of atmosphere created.

    I wasn't really expecting to see any ghosts. However I was expecting a little more 'theatrics' or some effort to create mood or a sense of eeriness. I think the guide (Leon) needs more practice with speaking and developing his story telling abilities. I don't think he realises he ends many sentences with 'alright' or 'right'. He also spent a lot of the time talking about meditation, chakras and opening your third eye. Perhaps more time on historical stories rather than that would have been better. I was a bit disappointed with what I felt was lack of effort in creating an experience and mood. I realise that can be difficult in only 1.5 hours but perhaps recruit and train some acting students to just add a little more to what (at the moment) is a pretty bland and boring experience. At the moment I would not recommend your tour but I wish you luck in trying to improve the quality of your tour.
