i really enjoyed the info our tour guide presented and he delivered it such an interesting and at times funny way. allow us all some time to wonder around was great we had plenty of time to take photos and really get a feel of the prison

Amazing experience with Toula and Maddie on Saturday night. They were incredibly knowledgable and engaging, and were able to confidently deal with a small number of boozed up wankers acting silly on the tour. Loved every minute

Very interesting to see the prison as it is today. Having been raised in Melbourne I can remember the original prison. Our guide was interesting and was obviously well aware of the prison and it’s high profile guests.

Great way to see Melbourne. Loved the interesting story - wished there was audio but understand may be a safety issue (ie when crossing roads).

Charlotte was very knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining
