This is a great time. You get a fun walk through the beautiful village of Barnstable. Thru your guide you can not only imagine the past but you can even feel it in the air. This is my favorite thing to do on a warm summer evening. The evening is spent with tales of history, mystery and ghosts. Shadows that... More

My boyfriend and I went down for a two day trip to the Cape with no major plans in mind or booked. We both have done many ghost tours together (I like the scary, he likes the history) so I thought the ghost hunter tour would benefit both of us! Let me tell you, this tour on our first night...

We had some cloudy days on the cape and looked for alternative things to do in the area. Really happy we found this tour. Derek was a perfect guide. He was well versed, knowledgable and open to anything the group asked. He made it interactive and entertaining. Would have gone even if we had great weather. Went on the three... More

Brought a friend from out of town to see what this tour was all about. He was interested as he feels he had lived in a few homes that had spirits. The old Jail was by far the most frightening thing I've ever been in. The old cemetery was creepy but felt more "alive". Would love to try it again... More

This was an great excursion for all of us, especially for my youngest daughter. Our friendly and personable host provided us with town history and local anecdotes. My youngest daughter caught a glimpse of a real spirit and we saw photos from past experiences. We learned about famous people, visited famous buildings, and (of course) the graveyard. I must say,...

Very cool tour. First of all, take the 3 hr ghost hunter tour if you really wanna have fun, not the 2 hr history tour. Second, Derek was an awesome tour guide and I would definitely want him to be there if I went again. If you are looking for a guaranteed ghost sighting, save your money and rent a... More

Our family went on this tour last night. Derek was our tour guide. We found him knowledgeable, friendly and very passionate about his tours. He told us a lot of interesting history while bringing us to haunted places. Wandering around the cemetery was super scary and the old jail is not for the faint of heart. I definitely recommend this... More

Who knew there was so much haunting and American history in such a small place. Great guide and the tour includes a visit of the old wooden jail next to the Coast Guard museum.

We EACH paid 15 bucks (30 in total) to walk around, look at some houses, and hear vague stories of possible ghost sightings. While my girlfriend and I enjoyed the history and scenery, half way thru we begin to feel ripped off. Our guide, Derek, was alright, but we just couldn't get past the feeling of this "tour" being a... More
