My girlfriend and her two grandsons 12 & 14 went on the tour on 2/14/15 of Elm Street. and had great fun. Dan is an excellent and engaging story teller. Even if you have lived in Greensboro for a number of years, as I have. You learn a lot of interesting new facts about this historic town.

My boyfriend and I went on this tour as part of our anniversary date. The tour was fun and informative. I would love to experience something like this in my hometown of Danville, VA. Our guide Dan is a wonderful storyteller. Unbeknownst to me, my boyfriend had emailed the tour's website and asked for help in setting up a surprise.... More

We were very disappointed! We were surprised at how bad it was because it got so many good reviews. It was all the way around just boring.

The tour guide was pleasant and informative. The tour lasted an hour and a half and covered 5 to 6 blocks around town. Unfortunately we never went inside any of the haunted buildings. We gathered outside the buildings while the ghost stories were being told. We were however encouraged to visit later on our own. Seemed an attempt to drum... More

We went on this tour as a birthday gift for our teenage daughter. Having lived in Greensboro for 15+ years, I'd heard that there were several "haunted" places in the city, but this was/is not my thing. Even so, we purchased the tickets online & met at the stated time for the 1.5 hour walking tour. I lost count of... More

I don't remember our guide's name (sorry) but he was knowledgeable. We walked around downtown Greensboro and he told us stories about different buildings and the "ghosts" in some of them. I learned a lot more about the city I live in!

We stopped in Greensboro overnight on our way to a beach vacation. We wanted something fun to do to fill the evening after a long ride in the car and a nice meal nearby. This fit the bill perfectly! It doesn't cost much and was just the right length of time. Our guide, Dan, clearly loves what he does and... More

My wife and I had a great experience on this tour. Our guide gave us great history of the downtown area and cool ghost stories to go with them. I highly recommend this to visitors from outside the city or residents who have lived here their entire lives. Wonderful!
