Why You Should Go on a Ghost Tour Wherever You Travel

by andreiuc88

Some people hear the words ghost tour and get really excited, others simply cringe. Your reaction is largely going to be based on how you feel about the existence of ghosts. But, whatever you believe, you shouldn’t just write off a ghost tour. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re in Sydney trying out the rocks walking tour, or if you’re checking out the Adelaide Gaol ghost tour, there is something to offer everyone.


Most ghost tour guides have a passion for their city and the history of the area. This means they have a lot of knowledge which they’ll be eager to share with you. It doesn’t matter if you believe the ghost elements, or even if you see a ghost, these are extras compared to the knowledge you’ll gain of the city.

If you live in the area you’ll find this information useful in parties and other activities. If you’re just a visitor you’ll still find it interesting and it may even help you to impress that special someone.


When you go on a ghost tour with friends you’ll gain a shared experience and possibly a little fear, this will help you to bond with each other. It’s highly likely that you’ll discuss the events time and time again, helping to boost the bond and create a better friendship.

If you go on a ghost tour by yourself then you’ll have the opportunity to connect with like-minded souls, you never know who you may meet or where it may lead.

Family Friendly

You don’t need to go for the scariest ghost tour you can find, especially if it’s your first time or you’re taking the family. There are plenty of family-friendly options that will give you and the kids a lot of fun without them staying awake every night for the rest of your vacation.

Many ghost tours have equipment that you can use on the tour, allowing you to track the ghosts yourself. Even if you don’t witness anything you’ll have a lot of fun trying and it will help to ensure the tour is fun for everyone.

You’ll be surprised at the buzz you get when you do detect something unusual. Of course, if you’re a hardened septic even these tools may not impress you. But, you ill have a fun and memorable night.

It’s Different

Don’t forget that you can drink in a bar virtually anywhere in the world, but each ghost tour is a unique experience and one that should be embraced. 

By itself, this is a great reason to take in a ghost tour, after all, the more varied your experiences the better-rounded a person you’ll be. That sounds a little deep but it’s true!

If you’re still not sure about ghost tours then consider going on one in your own town. You’ll be surprised at what you may learn and you’ll always be able to escape and go home. Having an exit route will make it easier for you to relax and enjoy the experience.
