My daughter and I decided to try out the Ghost tour. After reading the good reviews we felt we could not go wrong. However we were somewhat disappointed. Firstly we did not tour with Virginia Hirsch and this might have been the problem. The Woman that took us on tour was very knowledgeable but did not have that spark to... More

Even though I'm still a huge skeptic when it comes to anything supernatural, I really enjoyed the ghost your. The guide was knowledgable and fun, and it's a great way to learn about Bayfield's storied history.

A group of us, ranging in ages from 9 - adult, did the Ghost Walk. It was lots of fun, and the kids especially liked carrying the lanterns. Not too scary, but scary enough. The tour guide was a great storyteller, and we also learned some history of the area. Definitely would do another of the tours.

Recently visited Sept 2012. Lasts for 1 hour - walks a mile around the local streets and stops at a few houses to talk about ghosts that might have inhabited those houses in the past and those that are still around. Stories from home owners and things that happened. We took the lantern tour and it was great. My wife... More

We went on the Tall Sails and Fish Tales walk and enjoyed the stories. The Heritage staff are always great in character and it's great to hear the history of the town and its people. We had gone on the Ghost walks in the past which were even better!

We took are 7 & 8 year-old sons on the Ghost Tour. Had an enjoyable time, good "campfire" stories that entice but do not scare kids. Recommend for a good family activity.
