We had a wonderful time on this tour. Not only we’re the stories entertaining and intriguing, but we also got to learn some unique history about the Rocks, see unique locations we may not have found on our own and take in some gorgeous views. The tour guide named Emily was friendly and engaging, telling the stories with dramatic flair and many excellent puns. She kept everyone involved with some great trivia questions, jokes, visual aids and even poetry. Highly recommend this immersive tour.
Very nicely done!

Great tour! It was a lot of pun and the tails of crime are a slashing good time. Don't get hung up like the earlier residents on the puns, they add to the enjoyment. There are unbelievable stories, sad stories, creepy stories, and down right WTF stories. All will steal your enjoyment.
Such an entertaining tour

Emily was a delightful host, her charming puns balanced out the gruesome stories well! It was raining when we attended but we were able to avoid most of it and still thoroughly enjoyed our time
