Couldn't hear as the group was big and the guide had no speaker of any sort to let her be heard. That was ok. However, we paid for the extended tour but we were not allowed to stay for the extended portion unless we paid her more at that moment. Her records said we hadn't but my receipt clearly shows I did.

I felt the size of this tour was too large for everyone to easily hear and interact with the guide. The “ghost stories” weren’t very compelling or interesting. Perhaps it could have been livened up with embellishments. Everything was told to us very factually. I will caveat my comments about the tour size by acknowledging we went Halloween weekend so it might be less crowded other times of year and we saw other tours that were similar, if not larger in size so perhaps it’s just customary for these tour groups to take on insanely large groups and the expense of being able to interact and hear all the stories well and stay engaged. Would not recommend or go again.
