I've done lots of ghost tours, and this one is great! The guide is engaging and knowledgeable of his subject. He has first hand experience, as well as personally knowing many of the people whose stories he us sharing. Harper's Ferry is a lovely mountain town with its share of seedy Civil War goings on. A lot of ground is... More

As an evening excursion while working in and near West Virginia, my co-workers and I have participated in this awesome entertaining experience twice, so far.... What a blast!! *Bring comfortable shoes (to avoid tipping over in your high heels :-)

The guide is a fantastic orator and knowledgeable on the local history (especially war accounts). For each stop at a building we are given a history of the structure and the people whom lived in it, all done as a prelude to the ghost stories. The guide has a flare for acting and a musical background which brings the stories... More

I've been to ghost tours all across America and England, and Rick is the best storyteller I've encountered. Two hours of great storytelling and history for $14. Go on this tour and don't be a cheapskate , give the man a tip at the end. You will learn a lot of history and be throughly entertained.

We went to Shepherdstown WV for our anniversary and my wife was looking for something to do the second night we were in town. She found the Tour and called and booked our reservation. We went to Harpers Ferry during that day then came back at night. The daytime helped you envision a lot of what Rick talked about. My... More

I found myself swept back in time as the guide Rick painted a picture of a town from years past. the tour starts at the front steps of a church that could fill ten movies with horror so even if you are in a crowd you im being watched feeling you're always looking over your shoulder. This town just takes... More

We had a great time on the Ghost Tour. It was entertaining, spooky, everything you could hope for! Despite the large group, the guide projected his voice so everyone could hear. Even though I was in the back sometimes, I never felt like I missed out on any of the stories. AND I FOUND GHOSTS IN MY PHOTOS OF HOGS... More

We were spending the weekend in Harpers Ferry and had to check out this highly acclaimed tour. It was great! We really liked how there was so much history tied into the stories! It was Halloween so the tours were quite large, but they did a fantastic job. Check it out if you are in town!
