We had a good time walking around Burlington with Thea. She had a flare for the dramatic in her initial approach to the group and kept it up in her telling of stories at various spots around town. Got a little bit of Burlington History as well and we enjoyed, during the rest of our stay in town, walking by... More

This was a really fun tour, you got a little bit of history about the town, some fun ghost stories and a nice walk. Be advised that the waterfront tour meets at the waterfront by the battery park fountain, some folks on our tour missed this info and had to catch up. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area.... More

Thea took us on The Waterfront Ghost Tour last weekend. The harbor area has always been a favorite place of mine when I am in Burlington but the tour added another dimension. I love Thea's information and ability to help you visualize the history of the area bringing in the supernatural aspect. We got in a great walk and saw... More

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to have a private tour with Thea. She lead us through the City on the Darkness Falls Tour, telling us all the stories relating to that particular tour, answering all our questions about the history of Burlington to the best of her abilities. And let me tell you, she knows her stuff! It... More

If you like being told ghost stories in a great New England town, then this is for you. We started at the city hall park, walked around hearing spooky stories of the towns history. I just let my imagination take me through time.

Thea Lewis was our guide and I must say she is a very captivating story teller. I've lived in the area for 18 years and I did not know many of the interesting historical tidbits of downtown Burlington. Also, I have been on other so-called ghost-tours in different cities and she is definitely more credible and interesting than the others.... More

I recommend the Darkness Falls tour to anyone looking for something interesting and out of the ordinary in Burlington. Thea's an engaging presenter and the stories are well told. Our 8 year old daughter had a really great time as well. A really good time.

We went to Burlington last weekend for a music festival. The night before, we were bored and looking for something to do. Considering I'm a ghost tour guide here in PA, we thought it would be nice to check out a different tour. I didn't have high hopes, because I've been on plenty of awful tours, but Thea really impressed... More
