This activity will end right where it started.
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.

This started well but it was Australia Day and when we were distracted by the fireworks I felt our guide lost patience and the tour ended early. There is plenty of walking and much uphill which I was happy with but would not suit everyone.

Our tour guide did not show up due to having an accident which understandably was not their fault but despite having a contact number it was difficult to find out why we left wondering what had happened. Once alerted the company apologised but unfortunately we did not get to go on the tour.. I hope our tour guide was ok and makes speedy recovery.
