We came with a group from our MINI Cooper car club and we had a blast. The night we arrived it was cold, really cold and we were worried that we were all going to be miserable. Then we found out that when it's under 40 degrees he does the tour inside the church. Rick is such an amazing story... More

Harper's Ferry is the perfect location for a ghost tour and Rick was the perfect guide. We had been skeptical of tours in the past thinking they might be too touristy. However, we decided to go during a visit in November since there would be a smaller crowd and we were not disappointed. It was a highlight of our weekend,... More

Visited the tour on 9/27/14. Rick, the guide was fantastic. He kept us interested not only with the ghost stories but with the history of the town in general. He's such a character and will definitely see him again!

I go to this tour every year, it's always very fun and entertaining. Rick the guide is very engaging and does a great job as an ambassador for the area. Harpers Ferry itself is very beautiful and scenic, and is always worth the trip as well. Bring a friend and go, you won't be disappointed!

The tour guide had amazing facts and stories passed down from generation to generation. He lead us to the exact place where some of the chilling stories took place. I would recommend going to this amazing town, and if you go around this time of year, BUNDLE UP!

Nov 2, 2014 I attended the Harpers Ferry ghost tour with my family, it was such an entertaining and interesting ghost tour. Rick our tour guide was very knowledgeable, dressed the part & was even funny! I highly recommend this tour and we will be back again very soon. Thank you for a great experience.

Rick knows his history & is entertaining as well! I also had a huge orb show up on my back when my husband took a pic right before the tour! Whoa! I am familiar with a lot of Civil War history, being from Northern VA, but was not a knowledgeable about the particulars with regard to John Brown's involvement and... More

Went on Halloween night this year. It was at geat theatrical performance with interesting, yet chilling stories! I would be a little leery about bringing young children as it can be somewhat scary at times, but it's actually composed of many historical stories that simply seek to explain the hauntings and apparitions found at Harper's Ferry. It's a little stressing... More
