Fun for all ages. Family oriented. The tour guide is detailed and very historical and fact oriented. The Hop on Hop off trolley makes stops frequently. The tour is about an hour and is it very interesting

Went here on a night time ghost tour. Very eerie at night and of course the tour guides try to spook you and make it fun. Very interesting for history buffs.

During the tour the thought of the conditions of this old jail makes one wonder if the conditions of today's jail were the same as the old one, would there be so many in Jail today.

The tour guides were dressed as inmates and told "their" story. We were "processed into the jail for our crimes". During the tour a lot of history was presented, how the prisioners spent their time and the conditions they lived. At the end of the tour, we were all handed our offical pardon.

The inmates are well versed on what happened there. We had Edgar and he was a great story teller. We were all amazed at the way things were handled back then. Very interesting to be put in a cell!

I liked the idea that your guide was a deputy period appropriate to the jail. He was very knowledgeable about what life was like then and had a sense of humor.
