Great experience but could be longer.

This was a great tour but it seemed a little short. We were only inside the jail for only about 20 minutes. Don't get me wrong the jail isn't large by any means but I still believe it could have been longer.

Overall it was a good experience. It was great to be able to have a look inaide the old jail but it felt very scripted. The guide was friendly and informative, although somtimes like towards the end of the tour I didn't know if what he was saying was for a joke or was true.. I pretty much took the tour to go inside the jail so I wasn't to disappointed. My type of tour is usually the history bugf who believes in the paranormal so I didn't have high expectations.

Our tour was AWESOME and our Guide was tremendous. Would recommend this tour. Went on the tour with my 11 year old son and he thought it was really fun.

A little disappointing for the price

Much of my group found the tour to be somewhat of a letdown. At $20 each, they expected more than to walk through several really dark rooms with not much to see. The jail building itself is actually quite stunning, though foreboding (as a jail should be), and we probably would have enjoyed the tour just as much if lights were on, and we could see the inside of the building and look at the old architecture. I don't think that would take anything away from the history and stories told by the tour guide. A bit pricey for what you get out of the tour.

Good tour but has potential to be better

We were excited to tour the old jail, but were disappointed that we only visited three rooms on the tour. Would have been better if the guide spent less time in each room to leave time to tour more of the jail. Our guide was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable.

Save your time and money

Although the building itself is very interesting, the tour was lacking, could have been the guide we had, but found it to be a waste. The only thing I found very interesting was that part of the old jail is used for students studying historic restoration - I thought that was very cool. Our guide pointed out the ticket $ went to their benefit, very glad about that, would have donated $ to them and skipped the boring tour...

Great experience

Although we didn't get to see a ghost, our tour guide Glenn was knowledgable and enthusiastic about the history of the jail. We learned a lot about history and prisons in America in the early days and enjoyed the tour very much.
