Sydney Haunted Tour FAQs

What time does the Haunted Sydney tour end?

Plan for three hours. We finish the walking part of the tour around 2.5 hours in, then settle in for a drink (included) at a local pub.

Will I see ghosts?

Afraid not. We think Sydney has enough spooky about it so that we don’t need to make up stories of ghosts. We’ll set the scene with the details of some of Sydney’s most gruesome history, but we’re not the kind of company that would feign a “ghost sighting” on tour.

What should I wear?

Dress like you’re going to be outside at nighttime for 3 hours. Some people like to carry on at local bars afterward and make a night of it. If you do this, you may want to dress up a bit — just make sure to wear decent walking shoes.

How big are the groups?

We cap our group size at 12 people to ensure each person has the chance to have a personal experience with the tour guide and one another. 

Can I bring my stag-do/hens party/birthday party/work trip?

Of course! We are happy to host private functions on our personalised private tours. These are 3 hours tours we tailor specifically to your group’s requirements and interests. Book a private tour here!

How much walking will there be?

Expect to walk about 3km during the tour.

Can I bring my school group/office/etc?

Of course! Feel free to book on a public tour, or if you want your very own chartered tour reserve it here!
