I have been on the ghost tour more than once and it is never boring! The narrators dress in 19th century garb, sometimes carry lanterns and are very entertaining and really hold the group's interest. The only thing I have to say that is not glowingly positive is that sometimes they walk a little too fast. Downtown Wilmington streets are... More

Walk around Historical Wilmington with your guide as he shares stories of people being buried alive. Walk through dark allies and look for the light.......I hope you see it. Be brave.

You're not going to find a better night out for $13. Period. Tour lasted about 90 minutes and hit 5 spots within Wilmington's historic district. Michael, the guide, was knowledgeable and awesome. These are not some rookie college kids out to make beer money. Legit research goes in to their stories, and there's documentation to back it up. Apparently, there's... More

We have been on many ghost tours but this was our favorite thus far. Our guide John brought many stories of the supernatural to life as we walked the streets of historic Wilmington. This 90 minute journey made us want to go back to hear more.

Michael is a delightfully creepy guide-- although we had been before, we were fine re-visiting the same "haunts" as it was a first time event for my 12 year old son. :)

This is one of those things that a written review can't do justice. You have to experience it. I've done ghost walks in other places because I enjoy the history combined with a fun experience, but I think this one in Wilmington was the best one by far. The history of Wilmington is certainly entertaining, and the guides are wonderful... More

I love ghost walks, and this was definitevely one of the best ones I´ve ever been in. Our tour guide (Kitty, I believe it was her name) was very fun and presented a lot of interesting information, not only about ghosts, but about Wilmington history, making it a great walk for even non believers. Can´t wait to do the other... More

Our tour guide, Michael, told wonderful stories about the (dark) history of wilmington. There was just the right amount if history, just enough so I can sound smart next time I'm at the beach with my friends, but not so much that I was about to fall asleep.

This was so much fun! We learned a side of the history that would otherwise be overlooked, and had a spooky good time. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Saw about 6 great locations, including cemeteries, and learned all about their haunted pasts. Took pictures to look for visitors ;)

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our tour. First off, let me say one tip: do not prepurchase tickets online. It's through a secondary site, and they charge a fee. I did this to ensure the tickets would not be sold out. However, I don't really think they limit the number of people, as our group was about 20 people.... More
