We really enjoyed our tour. We did a ghost tour of Greenwich Village. The tour guide was very laid back and told interesting stories. It was cool to hear local history and be entertained by a gifted storyteller. I would definitely recommend it.

I did the ultimate 3 hour ghost walk, our guide spoke in the quietest monotone voice, with all the New York traffic and people on the streets it was almost impossible to hear what he was saying. The bits I did hear were boring and were historical rather than spooky or scary

This was the biggest waste of my money and time. I felt as though I was back in high school math class - so boring! Perhaps other tour guides are better, but i wouldn't waste my time to find out.

Do not expect any hair-raising experiences. It is more of a history of the area with some nice anecdotes about Poe. Interesting "facts". One of the high-lights for me was seeing the oldest tree in Manhattan. It is HUGE!

The tour guide stayed in character (Mrs. Stuyvesant) the entire tour. She was very informative and my group had a blast.

I took the Ghosts of New York Grand Central Tour with Tour Guide Andy, and I thought it was great, I'm a skeptic, but I keep and open mind, and I love NYC History, and Andy is an encyclopedia of NYC history. The tour takes you to some corners of Grand Central nobody ever visits, and thats what made this... More

What a waste of money and time. This is not a ghost tour, its a history tour. The guide, who was so boring (sorry) told us about famous people who had died in the houses he pointed out, nothing ghostly or scary at all. The only reason we have given the tour one star is because Greenwich Village is such... More

Took my teenagers to the ghost tour... It's a good Greenwich tour. Very good in fact. But I paid for a ghost tour and my kids wanted a ghost tour and there was nothing about ghosts. I would certainly take the tour as a Greenwich one but why sell something that you don't provide?
