They have various ghost tours, but I have only been on one so far. It was very interesting to learn about downtown Wilmington and who used to occupy some of the homes (and why some never really left). Make sure you wear good walking shoes because you will be moving quite a bit.

Great tour! Lots of fun and educational. There definitely are some creepy stories that make you think. Very educational and a lot of fun. It's the perfect tour for a night out. The tour guides do a great job with all ages. Just remember it's really not a great tour for younger kids. The tour is priced just right and... More

Be prepared to walk. Our group was small about 10 people choose the 830 walk. Made about 4 stops spending roughly 5-10 minutes listening to the guide. Guide is a great story teller but strictly business. No small talk between stops. History wonderful, ghost I believe that is up to each individual person.

Did the 8:30 tour and Michael was our tour guide. We were a little hesitate to take our 10 year old daughter but had no issues. They over several different tours of the ghost walk and this was our first, so we are excited to return soon and hear different stories.

This was a great walking tour of the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Tour is an hour and a half and about a mile and a half up and down hills.

My husband and I were looking forward to this - we love a good ghost walk. Unfortunately, over the 90 minute tour we maybe heard 5 ghost stories. Our guide was wearing a kilt (sorry I've forgotten his name), so I had high hopes that he would be entertaining. Well, he dragged the stories out so long we got bored.... More

Went with two teenagers and it was a great diversion for the evening. Our guide was fun and knowledgable. The teens had fun as did the parents. Take the later tour if possible. It was good fun after dark. I would do this again if I ever found myself in the area at the right time. Five stars.

I took the tour with Kitty, who was dressed like the black-veiled widow in Edward Gorey's drawings for "Mystery!" She was an excellent storyteller and guide as we walked around downtown Wilmington. She explained the historical figures connected to each location, as well as the supernatural events and mysterious circumstances of each narrative. The tour inspired me to explore other... More

First of all, we can't say enough about our tour guide, John Henry Scott. He combined warmth, humor and drama with a ghostly educational tour of the old downtown Wilmington, NC area. What a treat! Mr. Scott has a background as a professional character actor, musician and radio host. He looks at first glance to be either an old salt... More
