When my grown children were pre-teens we visited Harper's Ferry and took the ghost tour with the woman who started the tradition. This year I went back with a nine year old grandson. Our guide, who inherited the tour from the daughter of its founder, leavened the spooky with much more history than I recall from the first experience. He... More

I've only done one other ghost tour before in a similar old America town, and I found it somewhat disappointing, so I was skeptical when I signed up for this one. I was wrong! The stories were great and it was a fun engaging way to learn about the history of Harpers Ferry. Our guide (I wish I could remember... More

Fabulous tour!!!! I was on a getaway with friends and we visited the town that morning before returning to do the ghost tour that evening. It was great to already know a little background before he began telling the stories and history from around town. I recommend this to everyone. The gentleman that did our tour was very entertaining as... More

This was a great tour! I went with friends after a day of exploring the town, and we all agreed that we understood the history of the town so much better after hearing the stories from the tour. It wasn't very scary, but was definitely worth it for the excellent story telling.

Rick was very knowledgable and made the experience fun and interesting! He contributed with his own experiences while living in the town. It gives you a much different perspective of the town. It's 90-120 minutes long. Recommend if you have the time.

We brought our family to the Harpers Ferry Ghost Tour and had a wonderful time. The stories were just eerie enough to entertain, but not too scary that our 10 year old was disturbed by them. This was a really nice way to learn something and see the historical town in a new light. Advice: Wear walking shoes, bring a... More
