Had to use the washroom an hour before the Orphanage tour. Went in closed the door an as I was going heard the door rattle. Opened the door expecting someone to be waiting and there was no one there. There was only 2 staff members in the room and they were behind the counter. Didn't hear or see anything when... More

I really enjoyed this even though it was a couple of months ago. I think that the only people who didn't like it weren't paying attention. A couple wandered off before we even went inside. Not ghost hunting just history learning. I'm going back in the spring. I did have a slight problem with the stairs, but I have the... More

My troop went on this tour late at night a few years ago. while sitting on one of the bleachers in the basement I said "I wonder if any poltergeists are here." a few seconds later I got scratched on my right shoulder. I asked one of the leaders who I could see was just out of arms reach of... More

I definitely recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Alexis, was very passionate about her job and about the spirits of the children that still reside in the orphanage. What happened at the orphanage needs to be remembered. These children need to be remembered. I recommend taking this tour if you have not done so already. The only reason I will... More

I had high hopes for this tour,being that we came off of a fantastic historical tour earlier (Mason Dixon Ghost Tour.) From the very first moment our tour guide had us in stiches. Our guide was the only thing we heard all night Overreacting and loudness must of kept the spirits away from this "haunted house." A story at each... More

this tour was a joke, the tour guide over acted to say the least and was kinda Loud. THe orphanage was tacky and dumpy and you didn't really get a tour of a Orphange but just a room stupidyly decorated and a basement with acouple rows of bleachers Save your money got the the Mason Dixon paranormal tours!!

My gram and I went on this tour. She is a non believer but after what she felt and saw on this tour she's starting to question things. This tour was very interesting and we will definitely do it again.

My husband and I have taken this tour before but they've changed it to more story-telling and lest investigating. We were both looking forward to the tour but were disappointed in the change. The guides were pleasant and did a great job. But the tour was a LOT of just standing around listening to their stories. So, if you're like... More

Being in the actual orphanage was great, the tour not so much. the stuff with the "paranormal expert" seemed a bit staged. The part in the basement with an reenactor was ok, she did a great job but I specifically chose the midnight tour to not have that part. Not worth the 13 dollars per person, Id say 7 or... More
