Definitely not a Ghost Walk. At the very best a Walking History Lesson after dinner. Our guide must of graduated from UNC-W in Theater. Her dramatic performance was outstanding as she entertained herself well. As for Ghost Tours, go with another group or city.

The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area. We didn't see any ghosts though!! I did feel a presence in a couple of the areas we toured. The tour was reported to be approximately 1 1/2 mile walk. It seemed alot longer than that. Be sure to wear good walking shoes when you go. I wore tennis... More

The guide was friendly, laidback, and informative. All of the stories had us hanging on every word he said. We captured some unidentifiable objects in photos- one in particular looked like the ghostly outline of a child in a window. :) One can also learn about Wilmington's history. I've taken ghost walks in Asheville, Charleston, and Winston- Wilmington has one... More

Gone on this walk for 3 years straight! By far the best tour ever! Stories are interesting and tour guides are really friendly! Can't wait for next year!

My family and I decided to do this one night as a fun way to learn about old downtown Wilmington. I really loved our tour guide, he was an excellent story teller and made the stories interesting to listen to. I learned some things about the old buildings and town that I hadn't known before even after multiple visits. I... More

I'd been meaning to do the Ghost Walk for years, having heard so many great things about it, but like most locals, I rarely do the things in my own backyard. However, having had a wonderful experience on their Hollywood tour, I decided to come back with family and try their Ghost Walk. What a great decision. I would have... More

I am a Wilmington native & have been on the Ghost Walk of Old Wilmington several times & the Haunted Pub Crawl once. Each experience was interesting, informative & provided entertaining evenings with the history of Wilmington and its spiritual visitors. I would highly recommend these tours to both tourists and fellow natives. Charles Auten was our tour guide last... More

Definitely enjoyed the ghost walk. It was cool to hear all of the different stories and walk around downtown. I'd recommend it to anyone and I'd gladly go again.

went on the ghost walk for the second time . This time i was very impressed that the guide asked if anyone had taken the tour before, then asked us which stories we had heard. We were thrilled that the guide (john Scott) took us to different stories this time, he was very funny and very well informed about not... More

I didn't expect to see any ghosts or spectres, but I did expect to be entertained. Instead, the tour consisted of four stops with rambling, mostly boring stories. The guide provided too little history and a just a little bit more of a few ghost stories, but spent most of his time sharing experiences of former tour guests who had... More
