My wife and I took this tour on Friday, October 30th, 2015. It was a good way to get fresh air, walk off our wedding anniversary dinner, and enjoy Center City after dark. The guide, Jenna, was lovely, but we have experienced far better guides elsewhere, including Philadelphia.

We moved up our dinner reservation so had the whole evening. We were in town for such a short period of time and I had read about these tours so we went for it. It was this or watching TV in our room! That wasn't happening!! Travis was our guide and he is a great story teller. We had an... More

Guide seemed in a hurry to finish the tour. He was inattentive and kept walking away from the group, especially after crossing streets. Did not seem especially knowledgeable about anything that wasn't part of his tour lecture. Can't recommend.

My guide told interesting stories that really made you think about the possibility of them being true. I've been on many ghost tours that were disappointing or just not at all entertaining, but this wasn't either of those.

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.
