Q: What payment do guides receive?
For the free tours, guides receieve no other compensation, other than tips from happy customers, on a 'pay what it was worth' basis!

The tours are timed to go for about one and a half hours. The ghost tour may be a little longer, between one and a half and two hours.

Please contact to arrange this, preferably by email. Let us know your requirements!
Q: When do tours depart?
Please be at the correct location on the hour, and make your presence known to the guide, for a 'five minutes past the hour' start =)

They will be wearing a RED COAT and sometimes carrying a folder as well!
Q: Will I see a ghost on the Grizzly Ghost Tour?
This is possible! Take plenty of photos!
Q: Which tour has the craziest, weirdest stories?
Each tour features tales of the bizarre, but the ghost tour is possibly the strangest.
This is a great way to learn about some of Melbourne's quirky history,
while also exploring some of its wonderful architecture.
It will be interesting both for visitors to Melbourne and locals.

We went on the TWISTED TALES WALKING TOUR today. Really excellent, and learned about those hidden corners and secrets of Melbourne.
The Tour is conducted by very knowledgeable guide Charles every Saturday and Sunday at 11.00am. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
