I Was Pleasantly Surprised!

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... read more

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!

We stopped in Greensboro only for a night to break up our trip from Ohio to South Carolina. But no sense in being bored... so we got tickets for the ghost tour. The tour was well planned and well researched. My 7 year old may think he only heard about ghosts and supernatural happenings, but he also got a history... More

Our tour guide was quirky and passionate about what he was doing, keeping it lighthearted and telling jokes in between locations, then diving deep into his stories and knowledge of the history of the city. It was really interesting to learn about all of the history with the civil war, and also more recent events about paranormal activity. He was... More

This was fun interesting and maybe just a little bit scary. Great for night out with friends and/or family.
