A nice walk around the Newcastle CBD with fascinating and grim stories from the city’s colonial past. Hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and fun.

My sister and I enjoyed the walk around Newcastle and hearing a different perspective about what happened where! The guides were friendly and knowledgeable, making the activity one that I would do again with our visitors. Thank you!

Great tour, friendly and enthusiastic host. Walk was easy, though I am reasonably fit. I’m from Newcastle and thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour. Found out plenty I didn’t know. Tour guide told stories with added drama for effect. Nicely done

Fun night out, we went to an early session. Would have had more impact in the dark during one of the later sessions
