    Hubby and I thought this was a ghost tour where they would scare the bejesus out of you and have a good laugh, but it was a tour trying to connect to spirits. No spirits were around so it was pretty flat. In saying that though, looking through the jail, hearing some tales of the,prisoners and history was great.good value.

    They place had a very creepy vibe at night time. The guides were knowledgeable and the stories they told were fascinating. Highly recommend going on this tour.

    Great experience. The 2 guides were very informative on past history about the goal. I was there with 3 other family members. When we had our cell lock - ins we experienced paranormal activity it was truly rather chilling. Highly recommend this tour. Thanks for the tour guys.
