"We had a great time at Fort Amherst - it was obvious that all of the volunteers had gone out of their way to ensure that the birthday ghost tour was a complete success. The girls were scared from the moment they set foot in the tunnels - that's when the screaming started and it didn't really stop until we got back out into the daylight! The misty atmosphere, together with the eerie stories, really set the scene and kept everybody completely engrossed (and, in some cases, petrified!) throughout."
"I would just like to thank you for a brilliant night. The ghost evening was a fantastic insight into the world of Fort Amherst, which my family and I really enjoyed. The guides were friendly, knowledgable and just as scepticle as the rest of us. I felt completely safe in their hands for the night, thank you."
