The tour takes you to 5 different locations in New Bern. Don't expect to see anything supernatural, it's more of a fun history lesson. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining...it just wasn't really a ghost tour.

Kind of a scary place esp the graveyard and even walking around the town, you see dots of light and no reason for it, get to see Blackbeards house, cant get too close, worth the trip and nice exercise on a fall night!!

We went on a 9:30 tour and the guide was a delightful young lady who knew her history very well. The walk was easy and not too long. The stops were space well. I'm not always a walker but this was very easy to do. About an hour long but a very easy walk. Be sure to say "Goodnight Mrs.........)take... More

The Ghosts tour is a great way to learn a little more history about a very historic town, and have fun doing it. Nothing beats walking around town at night with a knowledgeable guide. Very entertaining. Highly recommended.

Lots of local history. Excellent guides. Kids and adults both will enjoy the hour-long tour. Covers current and past history of New Bern.

It was a good tour. My husband and children thought it was very good and interesting. I have been to Charleston, SC tours, and they are exceptional, so my experience may have been tainted slightly. It was also still daylight when it started, which, in my opinion decreases the "ghostly effects". Overall, we would recommend.

My mom and I walked off of this tour about halfway through. It was absolutely terrible. I believe our guide was the writer of the tour. Really boring, no ghosts, just a walking history tour.

Had a wonderful time. Also bought their book. Neat thing to do in New Bern. Ask about dining at Morgans also.
