Great time, tour guide was very knowledgeable. I brought my instamatic camera and got the ghosts not knowing I was taking their picture until I had my photos developed. For some reason people using their phones to take pictures didn't capture them. Very Eerie!

This was definitely a fun experience. The tour guides were knowledgeable and had experiences to add to their stories making it more fun. It's well worth taking the tour even if you don't believe in the paranormal, because all the stories relate to history, including H.P. Lovecraft and Poe. The only issue is the poor condition of the sidewalks. I... More

The tour was both informative and fun, highlighted by the charm of Providence. I walked from the Courtyard Marriott and though a bit of a hike totally doable. The guide Susan was wonderful and really made the tour a lot of fun and full of history. The love stories of Poe and AnnMary Brown were really interesting. Also a nice... More

We just returned from our 3rd year of going on one of these tours. They are always very entertaining. The guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The tour is kind of a mixed bag of historical and paranormal sightings tour. Whether or not you believe in ghosts and orbs, it is still a very enjoyable 2 hours.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Providence. We only had the night in the city and it was a great way to experience the sites and the history of the Brown university district, which looks beautiful by night. Our tour guide Erin was fantastic - friendly and informative. Unlike other ghost tours I've been on which can... More

The Providence Ghost Tour is an excellent way to explore and learn about the oldest part of Providence city. Steeped in rich history and featuring the tales of many notable Providence figures, this tour takes visitors around the Brown University campus with pit stops at a RISD building, H. P. Lovecraft’s house and the Providence Athenaeum. There are no spooky... More

We felt the tour was good-to-great. We covered homes throughout several time periods, on Brown University grounds and beyond. The tour guide nailed the entire trip, rarely stumbled through her presentations and even occasionally made it theatrical. The history was great. Felt the price was well worth the cost ... yes, it is hilly, yes the path occasionally uneven. No... More

The tour we attended was large, and unfortunately, included some younger adults that tended to talk in groups which distracted from the tour guide's narrations. The sidewalks and streets around Brown University, where most of the tour was conducted, were uneven and sometimes steep. You will need a good pair of shoes and I recommend a flashlight as some areas... More

Great history, ghost mix. I can say that at least one of the places we visited made me feel watched and made the hairs on my body stick out with intense goosebumps. Great city, nice walk, nice stories.. Why not? Do it!
