This was our 4th Walking Ghost tour (Philly, Boston and Scranton) and this one was the one we liked least. Randy was our guide and he was very nice and personable but the stories were a little long winded and I found myself zoning out. They are not "Ghost hunter's" but more history stories. Randy was funny but kind of... More

Our guide Jennifer arrived in a black cape and candle lantern, very cool. It was less of a ghost tour and more of an historical tour with ghost stories attached to the local lore. I like history , especially from pre colonial period to Civil war. Could have used a portable microphone and speaker. Not as many stories as I... More

Lancaster Ghost Tour, THANK YOU! This was a fantastic experience. Very well designed tour with a nice mix of "history and mystery." Learned a lot about the history and the not so well known parts of Lancaster. The guide was stellar! Jordan made the night fun, filled with lots of chills, followed by laughter. Great night, we'll be back!!

Had an awesome time on a great historical tour of Lancaster and and our guide was great. She handled a number of issues with professionalism despite inclement weather. We would do the tour again in heartbeat. Thanks again Lancaster ghost tours.

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.
