We visited with 2 of our kids (21 & 14) and had a great time. New Bern is a neat city with lots of character which came through in the tour. It was an easy walk with great stories of the past.

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.

My husband and I went on the Ghost Tour last night, August 24, 2013. It was fun and added to our weekend in New Bern. The stories were good and some a little creepy. All in all it was a fun time.

This guided tour is as much history as it is speculation about ghosts. Well informed guides field questions and help visitors get a feel for the history of this old town all while making it fun and whimsical.
