the tour guide was very knowledgable of the history and functions of the many parts of the battery. it has to be seen to understand the hard work the labourers had to do with pick and shovel.
I for one never realized so much of this went on, when you see the size of this battery and then visualize many more , some much larger it is truly amazing. The guide was very informative and a great insight in the operation of the battery was forthcoming. I would say this is definitely the highlight of a trip... 更多
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour into the old Battery. Our guide was very peasant and oh so knowledgable. You could completely understand how this would have worked many years ago. It would have been nice to see something working but can completely understand the logistics of this which makes it totally impractical. A very good time spent around there.
Graeme took us on a very informative tour of the old quartz battery and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, although it was a bit drizzly, most of the works in still under its original roof. None of the machinery is functional but it is easy to imagine what it would have been like when it was operating. Great history about... 更多
Malcolm as your guide will recreate the workings and statistics of the working not only of this battery but of the area in general. Best guide we have encountered to do with any mine. What he doesn't know is not worth knowing.
This was a tour we really enjoyed, we learnt how it all worked and how much gold was mined from the area at the time the battery was working. The Guide was very knowledgeable on the Venus Battery.

There were only 6 of us but Malcolm said he would do the tour with just 1 participant. Malcolm the tour... 更多

Malcolm did a tremendous job of discussing and describing the parts of the Battery (Mill) when it was used to 'liberate' gold from ore and rock. The battery itself is a marvel of engineering for its time; it is simply fascinating to listen and imagine the noise of this well-used Mill. The tour walks through the Mill itself; goes to... 更多

What a wonderful hour and a half. Our guide Makcolm brought the detail of the workings of the battery alive with his passionate delivery. This tour is really essential to gain an understanding of the reason for Charters a Tower's existence. We also really enjoyed Malolm's presentation at the amphitheatre on Tower Hill. He brought alive an overview of the... 更多
