We did the ghost tour, one dark, cold winters night. It was only a small group of 4 plus the guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and didn't overplay the supernatural, but gave some anecdotes that put a personal touch to the supernatural. The total distance was relatively short, but took a couple of hours. Whether you are a believer in ghosts or not I would recommend this tour.

Guide Andrew lead 5 adventurous free spirits in search of a sleepless night on a circuit of historic sites and spooky story stops near Dunedin's Octagon. The younger souls quickly established a special rapport with Andrew and hung onto his every word. The "grown ups" were fascinated by places they had never noticed in a city they thought they knew well. This compact tour has something for everyone and one week on we are all still telling family and friends about the experience. Congratulations, Andrew, on an enjoyable first class product.

I realized that the narratives about ghost and spirit are very much cultural related, so being an Asian tourist, I found this trip was interesting. I was curious to understand the stories of ghost, unrest spirit from the 'western' epistemology and ontology.The guide was very informative and charismatic and made the trip very personal by asking the visitors' experiences in ghost sightings. it is highly recommended trip

I did the tour of the Dunedin Northern Cemetery with a group of friends late at night. Very enjoyable and lots of fun. Many spooky stories told about the various interesting characters buried there and some cool stories of hauntings in the graveyard. Andrew is a very good guide, charismatic, spooky and a good sense of humour.

We walked up to the octagon in the middle of town, we sat down for a minute and got the fright of our lives from Andrew Smith, our guide. He took us down dark alleyways, around old churches and hospitals.Andrew had a good sense of humor, and he had a great suit for the tour! My favorite story was the black dog story. The hair raiser ghost walk is a good walk to discover Dunedin from a spooky perspective! Thanks Andrew!
