I thought this tour would be something different to do, since I was born and raised in Lancaster and returned for a visit. I was expecting to be scared by ghost stories, but it was about history and legend sightings. Lame, but was fun walking around Lancaster at night, in a group, without fear of being mugged.

A nice way to spend an hour or so in the evening. Interesting history, nice walk, less than a mile from the square. Group size around 10 was perfect. Our guide was pleasant. The tours are at 9pm. FYI, there are no places open to grab a bite to eat after the tour in Lancaster city. So, make other plans!

Pleasant walk lasting about 1 hour 15 minutes. It was historical, not scary. Tour guide knew the script, but was unable to answer any questions from the group. I was disappointed by the tour guide's lack of depth or breadth of knowledge about Lancaster. Been on much better walking tours elsewhere.

If you like local haunted history, this tour is for you. Our tour guide Jordan, was a great guide. Not only did he tell you what the haunted history of multiple locations around Lancaster, but he also talked about what to expect from the individuals who see the group on the tour. I also appreciated his honesty and passion about... More

This is our second ghost tour ( historic Williamsburg) .. While it would be nice to see ghost one shouldn't base their reviews on it!! Our guide Jordan was great , has wonderful story telling skills .. Just being in such a historic area one should feel the history and assume that they're in the company of our ancestors !!... More

We went to this tour on a summer evening. About 8 other people were there, so it wasn't crowded. I have been on ghost tours before; I think they are fun. It's all about the story telling,as our guide also informed us. I wanted to leave this tour after the first stop. The way the tour guide delivered the information...slow,... More

We didn't finish the tour because of how terrible it was. We didn't go into any of the buildings. We walked down the street, past the buildings, and by the cemetery. The tour guide was awful. The tour guide told ghost stories as we walked down the block. It was advertised that we would take a tour of each building.... More

After reading some reviews we weren't completely sold on lancaster ghost tour. We decided to go anyway, we were so happy we did! Our tour guide Jordan was so well spoken, entertaining and a great guide. He kept our attention with every word which is a lot to say! So interesting , fun and a great time :)

We decided that doing a Ghost tour on Halloween would be a cool idea. Well, it would have been a cool idea if this was a ghost tour. Our guide took us an an 1 1/2 history lesson of Lancaster. The 3 teens that I was with were beyond bored, they were angry. My husband and I enjoyed the stories... More
