Guided Tours of Historic Perth
(N 44o 53' 37.67")
(W 76o 15' 8.14")
Murder, mayhem, scandal, outrage - step back into Perth's fascinating past on a guided tour of this historic, nineteenth-century town.
Duels, hangings, and everyday shenanigans highlight the tours, and if you're lucky, maybe a ghost or two will make an appearance.
Founded as a military settlement after the War of 1812, Perth is well-known for its elegant stone homes and fine Georgian architecture, which provide a striking backdrop for the stories you will hear.
Choose from several tours, including an architectural and historic walking tour and a ghost walk, or hire a guide to lead your bus group on a more extensive tour of the town. There is also a tour designed specially for school groups.
All tours must be pre-booked.
Call or e-mail for information on availability and current rates.
