Jenna our tour guide was awesome! She made the tour extremely interesting and we learned a lot. Used my ghost radar app during the trip and very eerie that before she would tell us about a particular haunt or ghost at some point my app would flash an important word that went with the story. I would definitely recommend this... More

I have been on many ghost tours. This was the most boring one. The tour guide was friendly, but not a good fit for this job. He spoke in a monotone voice and kept forgetting parts of the story. Sometimes guests had to jump in with names to help him out. To make it worse, we passed by another tour... More

It was worth the $19 but was just average. I've been to several ghost walks in many cities and with the rich history of Philly, I was expecting to hear more unique stories. The guide was good, but almost too rehearsed and over exaggerated, like she'd done it 1000 times and was just going through the motions. My advice (if... More

The guide, Gina (or Jenna) was excellent. She kept us entertained and engaged. She provided context and made the ghosts of 76 come alive. My only negative comment is that our tour started 10min as the guide was waiting for people that never showed. Its very annoying that everyone that was on time are punished. As a result the tour...

Fun and enjoyable. The guide was engaging and entertaining. The tour is more historical with some "ghostly facts" not included in the history books. We would do it again.

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. She kept us interested and definitely had us chuckling. I learned a lot about the fascinating history of Philadelphia, and I was happy to have heard... More

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
