We thought this tour would be interesting since we all loved Ghostbusters and the Beatles. What a let down. Horrible and boring tour. Have been on a lot of ghosts tours that were filled with history (but not overwhelming) of the area. This tour I felt like we were in a marathon stopping off at an occasional old celebrites home...

This tour should have been titled Dead Movie Stars Old Houses. Our guide took us on a very long walk with huge gaps between homes, and told us "Oh, so and so (old movie star) lived here." He reported that after the star died someone said they heard the "star's ghost" saying lines from their famous movie. Then we got... More

We had a fabulous evening with Amada as our tour guide! We were fortunate to be the only ones, and a private tour is always fun! She had a wonderful combination of history mixed in with ghost stories and accounts of experiences, along with some music. I am looking forward to our next visit and will want Amada as my... More

My husband and I went on the Edgar Allan Poe tour. I am a history teacher and we have been to a dozen ghost tours around the US, and this one was by far the worst. The guide was overly eccentric and gave only a basic historical background...nothing you would not find in a basic history book. The stories were... More

My husband and I attended this tour and had a great time exploring and learning about Edgar Allan Poe and Washington Square Park. Ethan was very informative. It was amazing learning the originally Washington Square Park was potter's field back in the day. Great tour, you must attend.

We went on the Edgar Allan Poe Ghost Walk in New York City and it was lots of fun. Our tour guide was Karen and she was very informative about the area. We really enjoyed seeing different areas and learning the history. Washington Square Park was extremely interesting as to the history and also learned about the Triangle Shirt Factory... More

We took this tour with Alex as our guide. He was very knowledgable, and kept our attention the entire two hours. Even in the rain, the tour was well worth it.

We took a tour with Alex, who told us a lot of interesting information. Very good atmosphere in this part of the city for those kind of tour and very exiting stories.

I have done a few ghost tours in different parts of the country. One reason I like them so much is because you learn more about the history of where you are visiting. We did the Edgar Allan Poe tour and I must say that it did not disappoint. Our tour guide was very informative and I learned some new... More

We took our tour with Jocelyn, and she was terrific! My 12 year-old daughter requested that we take a ghost tour, and I am glad we chose this one! We took the St. Mark's/Stuyvesant tour, and it was creepy and full of great stories. She takes you past Peter Stuyvesant's grave, and MacSorley's and tells great stories about what has... More
