This was a really awesome tour. It was so interesting to see how punishment was handled in colonial times to now.

Not Quite Everything We'd Hoped

If you're looking to spend time in a creepy old jail that's not always open to the public, this tour may be for you. If you're hoping for plenty of ghost stories, it may not be. We went expecting to hear a couple great ghost stories both of the criminals who once housed the jail cell and of their more recently ghostly interactions (sightings, photos, hair pulling, etc.). We were disappointed that the tour ended up being very unstructured. We were taken to several rooms and told briefly what happened there. Then questions were answered any we moved on. There were really no elaborate stories to speak of. Our guide occasionally gave a brief synopsis of an event where a ghost showed up in a picture or a door that knocked back, but there was never a time where we stopped and listened to an elaborated, well told story. Overall, not a bad tour, but I wouldn't really recommend it.

Just Okay

I'd done this tour before a few years ago, and this year I brought some friends along to experience it. 3 stars is being generous, but I remember enjoying the tour previously. The guide mumbled quickly through the whole tour, was not very pleasant at all, and gave a very lackluster tour. No one could understand her and she rushed through the whole thing. She seemed uninterested which stripped the whole experience of any anticipation or thrill. I was truly disappointed.

This is so great! It was very interesting and the history of the place was incredible. I wa scared the whole time! The tour guide was amazing. It was a pretty fast paced tour. It would be cool if we were able to take a second to take in the silence of the jail and enjoy the room that we were in but one the tour guide I done explain you move on to a new room. But highly recommend going to see it!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The tour was very creepy, even more so in the dark. Nothing supernatural happened whole we were there...that we know of. I only wish more of the jail was restored so we could have toured a little more of the building.

Good time

The guide was great and the jail was creepy for sure. I felt like the tour didn't feel long enough or full enough to be worth 22 dollars. But overall it was a good tour.

parking is not ideal

The tour itself was fine and enjoyable BUT the picking up of the tickets beforehand was a pain in the butt. I purchased my tickets online, got an email confirmation sent to my phone but still had to make a stop at their office to pick up a paper ticket that the tour guide never even asked for. My problem with this is I had to pay $5 to park in a lot across the street for two minutes. Then we drive to the jail. What is the point of this? It was a waste of $5. This really needs to be changed, until it is I will not recommend your tour or do another one myself.

Took my staff on this tour. I had been on it with my family several years ago.

It was a little different tour but our tour guide was great!

Good Experience

Wasn't particularly scary but I don't generally find ghost tours to be. Enjoyed the history aspect and seeing the utilitarian architecture. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable and very straight-talking.

Pretty cool. Would have like to have been able to walk around a bit but I enjoyed it!
