Glen was our tour guide & he was fantastic. Although not truly scary - it was still cool being there in the dark, walking through real history. Glen did get a good scare into us all in last room in complete dark while telling a true tale. Very interesting and memorable - we had 7 adults in our group ranging in age from 50 to 20 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed the Old City Jail tour! Although no apparitions presented themselves, the tour guide did an excellent job of telling about the history of the jail and some of its more notorious "guests".

Not scary but a fun and extremely interesting.

The guide does a good job of getting people scared with personal ghost experiences. We did the tour at night which helped the suspense. There's no lighting (or HVAC system) so night is best for the experience. The history was phenomenal. It was nothing you'll hear in a school book and shocking to hear about early US reform practices. Good tour.

Excellent tour

Sean did an excellent job of giving the historical background and day to day functioning of the jail. He peels away any premise of the romance of the 'olden days' and explains the horror of the inmates that were sentenced to live, and die, in the jail. I recommend the tour to those who enjoy a lesson in history and want to get a small taste of life in the jail. If this jail isn't haunted, I am not sure what place on earth has enough lost souls to qualify.

The location was very interesting but the tour was not very interesting. it would have been better to include facts and the tails to build an overall picture of the time period and specific events that occurred. it came off really rushed and not at all as expected.

The Old City Jail tour was enjoyable because of our knowledgable guide, Shaun. Shaun has a deep respect for history, he is a true expert, and he demonstrated unparalleled passion for the subject matter. What a delight!
