Fifty years ago the seed for the Ghost Tours of The Rocks was sewn. Brian listened to many stories about local murders, suicides, unusual happenings and ghost stories told to him by his parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who all ran local boarding houses in The Rocks. Colleen had a passion for history and is a natural story teller. She is a descendent of convict Sophia Lett.

I attended the north side ghost tour on Thursday night (29/11/18). We had Gary as our ghost tour guide - he played his role really well and I enjoyed his theatrics throughout the tour. His knowledge about the history of each attraction was amazing! and, I loved his enthusiasm. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, especially learning about the history of The Rocks and Sydney in general back in the day. I look forward to doing more ghost tours in the future!
We had a pretty lousy experience. From what I've read, it's the luck of the draw whether your tour guide is any good. It felt like our guide was just rattling off memorized stories in a monotone. I'm sure he's very knowlegable about the area, but the story telling was woeful. No suspense, no details, just lots of rehearsed speeches told without the necessary art of good timing or theatrics.
