Purchased a deal through Living Social and couldn't get a hold of the company to actually book a tour. Their website didn't seem to work for Living Social, just Groupon. Called during business hours but never actually got anyone, just kept getting a voicemail. Left message with no call back. Ended up requesting a refund from Living Social because I... More

TERRIBLE COMPANY TO DEAL WITH!!! Absolutely unprofessional! A group of 6 booked this tour through Groupon. We arrived 30 minutes early to the location indicated on the confirmation email we received from Spirit Expeditions. The tour guide never showed. At the time our tour was supposed to be starting we began calling the company. All 6 of us called, I... More

We were underwhelmed by the 2 hour tour. The guide was not engaging nor a great story teller. Which led to a boring two hours. Also where we stopped generally had nothing to do with the story being told. Also doing the tour at that location on a Saturday is a bad time. You have lots of drunks and crazies... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy the Richmond tour but appreciate your feedback. I do try to tell stories about where we are; 3/4 of the stops are at the location where the stories took place. As for the other 1/4, every tour needs some filler stories. I'm sorry the tour was not scary and that you didn't see any... More

Having been on two ghost tours in Orlando and Anchorage, I was disappointed with the COS tour. The guide was absolutely dreadful. She was a teenager and didn't know facts very well. She walked so fast and was accompanied by a young man. It seemed they were dressed to go out after the tour and were trying to get done... More

My expedition was apparently cancelled and I had not been notified until after I went to the meeting place, paid for parking, walked all around the area looking for the guide, and finally on my 3rd phone call to the emergency phone number a rep named Vicki answered, put me on hold cause she also didn't know what was going...

This is a two hour walking tour in downtown Colorado Springs. The guides, Erin and Courtney, were great. We went to several locations where murder and mayhem had taken place. There has been reported paranormal activity in each of these locations. I was surprised to find out there actually is an App for that! We went on Friday the 13th,... More

This was a great ghost tour of Ybor City. Our tour guide was very informative about the history of the city. And all of Ybor City haunted locations. I took lots of pictures on this ghost tour. We also got a chance to go into a haunted hotel. Which in the hotel on the bottom floor was once a morgue.... More

I thought it would be an expedition hunting for spirits. NOT what we got in Oklahoma City, OK. Our tour guide named "Scott" started off the tour saying that the corporate office didn't tell him there would be so many of us, and they he only had equipment for 10 people. Then he stated throughout the tour that he could... More

I love history, and this tour was packed full of cool information I didn't even know was out there! Our guide Ellen in Salem Oregon was fun, vibrant, and really made the experience a blast for us. We had a small, intimate group that really had fun with our ghost hunting equipment and the creepy stops ;) I would recommend... More

I bought a Groupon for the Spirit Expedition tour in Omaha, NE. I thought, what's the worst that could happen?--I'm out $25 and 90 minutes of my life. It was really fun. Our guide, Dan, was very enthusiastic about the haunted areas of Omaha. I had to book our reservation through the company's headquarters in Oregon and the representative that... More
