I have done this tour twice and still want to do it more times. I drive in from Baltimore so it takes some planning to get to the tour but it is worth doing each chance I get. The narrator keeps the group involved and entertained the whole time and his civil war history background add an element to it... More

This was such a good time. My sister and two of my brothers took the tour on our recent visit. Every year my sisters and brothers try to get together for a weekend so we can catch up with one another. We all live in different areas so we pick a place to meet that is easy for us all... More

My family enjoyed listening to the ghost stories and some of us even came home a little bit spooked. The tour guide did a great job getting everyone engaged in the tales.

We took a group of 35 high school students on this ghost tour; they were talking about the tour for the duration of our trip!

We met at the church & walked the town by lantern light. Our guide was knowledgeable and a great story teller. Bring your flashlight & imagination!

I have always loved this ghost tour. I went on this tour once when I was young. I returned with my fiancé to share my experience with him and make new memories. I highly enjoyed our tour guide he was awesome and played the part to the max.

The tour guide was fantastic, very entertaining, he made jokes and sang songs. The stories were cool and creepy with a lot of history! We had a great time and I don't think I would ever stay in one of the "haunted" apartments...ever. Best part of our trip!

It used to be 8 dollars but was raised to 14. It is entirely outdoors and you do not go into any buildings. The tour guide is entertaining, but I would not waste you money. Again, 14 dollars is way to high to just walk around outside and hear a few stories. Also...no bathrooms!
