My husband and I took a mini vacation this week to Harper's Ferry for a few days. I did this tour as a child and knew that I just had to do it again with my husband. We booked it for a Wednesday night and when we arrived for the tour at the old church, we were surprised to find... More

Absolutely excellent. The history lesson was amazing, the guide made it fun and interesting and the ghost "stories" will chill you to the bone.

Definitely a must see if you are in the Harpers Ferry area. The host was fun to walk with and the stories were really good. He also nailed the explanations of the different types of ghost sightings. Not every tour goes that in depth.
