Growing up in Wilmington, I am familiar with many ghost stories of the area. This tour provided detailed stories of various locations around Downtown Wilmington. I really loved it, and was glad they didn't stick to the classic stories everyone knows! I believe we heard 6 stories and our tour guide was wonderful. She used different voices for some of... More

This was very interesting--a great tour of downtown Wilmington at night. The guide was very well informed and the walk was more of a history walk with some ghost-like stories. But it was still very interesting. I would not go on this walk unless you can walk fast and don't have a problem walking at night. My mother had some... More

We had a great time with the ghost walk. My wife and have taken the several times before and have yet to be disappointed. Since we had taken the tour before our guide Michael asked us what we had heard and adjusted it so the same stories weren't told again. This is not a jump out at you scare tour... More

I loved it! We heard 6 stories of old Wilmington and how/why there are ghosts that haunt the area now. It was SUPER fun. It was dark and our tour guide really knows how to tell stories well. I was totally sucked in to each story that she told. All of the stories come from different things that happened in... More

We were visiting Wilmington for a wedding. We were looking for something different to do. My husband and my son and his girlfriend decided to go on the Ghost Walk. Our guide was fantastic and gave us all of the history as well let us know what we would be looking for. I snapped many photos throughout the tour. At... More

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
