Maybe because our group was small and the streets were dark, but more than one of us got spooked! The tour guide is a good performer, and all the ghost stories were somehow connected to history, so one cannot help but learn while having fun!

My husband, 12-y-o son, 7-y-o daughter and I had an enchanted evening in beautiful Harpers Ferry; thanks to this tour and the experienced guide. We hope to go again with a large group! Such a great way to engage as a family! Thanks, Rick!

Went with a church youth group from CT. This was an excellent tour that was entertaining, presented by a very charismatic actor. Great fun; would do it again.

For less than you would spend on a night at the theater you get an evening of entertainment and history. Great stories of Harpers Ferry's past as you tour through its streets at night. Memorable bits of history shared by a masterful story teller.

We went on the ghost tour and though it was interesting it wasn't spooky.....at all. It was neat from a historical perspective but ghost.....NO, definitely not!!! The gentleman that owns and operates is super awesome and filled with information. IMPORTANT fact to consider, if you have difficulty walking, think twice. I didn't like the fact we had to walk to...

So, I rarely write reviews but I decided to on this experience. My husband and I took five kids with us on the tour, roughly $80, and it just wasn't worth it. In a total of two hours we got maybe 6 ghost stories. The rest of it was history and the stories were very long and drawn out. I... More

History comes alive on a dark alley as the tour guide paints a picture of the scene on the street you stand on from over 100 years ago. You can visualize the noise and the soot and the stench of a factory town and imagine the panic of the tone during John Browns raid, during the fierce battles for the... More

We loved the Ghost tour. The guide incorporates some great history into the tour along with the ghost stories. It's spooky, but not so much that the kids were scared. They can't stop talking about it!

What a great way to spend a lovely evening with a full moon in Harpers Ferry! The guide was informative, entertaining, and he geared the tour to all ages. It's a tour about history, ghosts and combined fact, song, and stories. Definitely a must do.

My husband, dog and I just finished the Harpers Ferry Ghost Tour and we had a lot of fun. Bailey enjoyed being with the people and walking around Harpers Ferry at night. We enjoyed the stories and the songs. I am looking forward to coming back to Harpers Ferry to hear the 'Oh' Be Joyfull' a daytime song and history... More
