We did the Lancaster Ghost tour and had Randy as our guide, although it was neat to see and hear the stories, he tried to invoke a sense of humor into some things which took away from it being an actual GHOST tour. We've been on a lot of tours and for an old city such as Lancaster, I would... More

A group of middle age women wondering the streets of Lancaster, late at night, might be called street walkers, but when accompanied by a ghost historian the event turned into learning more about the history of our beloved Lancaster City. The events highlighted during the tour, especially during the Halloween season added to the mystic and mysteries of local legends-Robert... More

I wouldn't recommend this tour to my worst enemy. False advertising. He haves no access to any of the locations we toured. We were really looking forward to at least get to walk thru the cementary. Guess what.....if the gates are locked his suggestion is to tresspass and its on you if you get caught. All the stories dragged. The... More

We do a ghost tour im most of the cities we visit. We love the odd history that that we learn along the tours, and realize we arent going ghost hunting. On this tour which took about 1.5 hours we got about 4-5 stories. On most tours you get that in a half hour. Each story was dragged out and... More

Our guide Randy was very knowledgeable, and handled rude people on the road as well as rude people taking the tour very well. But this is a history tour, not a ghost tour. It was very educational and entertainng, but not for young children. The tour lasted half an hour longer than expected, and while I loved it as I... More

Took the tour tonight. Thought we were getting a 1.5 hour candlelight tour and got 45 minutes, asked for a tip and left to find our way back to the start point. Google haunted places in Lancaster, save the $28.00 and a tip.

Like others have stated, you really shouldn't expect to see a ghost on this, or any other ghost tour, but I enjoyed it for the education it gave in the local history. Lot's of stories on the Revolutionary War and Civil War era. Enjoyable, and well worth the 90 minutes. We had a large group, our host stated it was... More

This pertains to the one in Strausburg, which is the sister company of the one in Lancaster. We've done these in the past at other locations, and while we never expected to see or hear anything, my kids are history buffs and enjoy the stories behind the tours. This one consisted of a ten minute walk to see the outside... More

Don't expect to see ghosts on this tour. You will hear some stories sprinkled with a little history and walk down some interesting alleyways in Lancaster. For 90 minutes of Entertainment it was reasonably priced. To make a fun evening of it, I recommend dinner at one of the pubs or restaurants near the square to start. Not sure the... More

The tour was fun, stories ok and our guide was an awesome guy but...I have to say that we felt the stories were rather dragged out and perhaps the tour could have either included more stories and/or been shorter.
