Our ghostly tour guide was Melissa. She was so amazing and full of interesting and fun facts. It is interactive for everyone we had our five year old with us and she loved it. It is also very inexpensive for the quality of the tour! ! A must see! !

Guide Melissa was wonderfully entertaining- and even conjured up a Ben Franklin sighting (not sure if a spirit 😀 or reenactment.) Definitely recommend if you want a little spookiness in your history lesson.

A friend and I took this tour just at the end of April, 2015. Our guide, whose name I forget, was wonderful! She was very animated, knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy her job.

It's not an expensive tour, so our expectations were managed, it just didn't seem like there were very many compelling stories. It was nice walking tour after dark, in a relatively safe part of Philly, but I wouldn't describe it as 'chilling'. And we've been on some ghost tours that have been (Edinburgh Vaults), so we're a bit jaded but... More

We went the weekend of Halloween. Perfect, cool, windy night added to the whole experience. Our guide was Alex, a college student who was informative and entertaining. We have recommended this to a lot of our friends. Don't expect it to be people jumping out at you. It really is stories and places that are haunted. And it's a walk... More

I should start with my boyfriend and I have done LOTS of ghost walks, and I am very generous with excellent reviews. That being said, I can't rate this as highly as I would've liked. I wish I could remember the name of our guide, but I can't. Our tour was on Thursday, Sept. 18 and he was an unremarkable... More

Jenna was our tour guide, she was very knowledgable in history but was a skeptic of the spirit world. If you are going to be a ghost tour guide you should believe in the product you are selling. The trip was good for historical facts, but didn't have a good ghostly feel to it, she was constantly disproving her own... More

We brought a group of student tour guides from a local University who were in tour guide training- Jason was engaging, told great stories, and our students learned so much about professionalism on tour from him! Even though the tour was in the morning instead of the evening, we really enjoyed it. Great price and great activity for students!

Our Ghost Tour was very enjoyable. Our tour guide, Alex, was knowledgeable and fun. The kids on the tour really seemed to enjoy him as well as the adults. It was a pleasant night for walking the streets of Olde City and learning some history as well as ghost stories. I had purchased 1/2 price tickets through Groupon. Great deal...... More
