Not really worth the cost, but it is something to do on a nice night when you feel like walking (beware of the hills). We were able to stop in and see the quad area on the campus of Brown University as part of the walk, so that was a plus for me. Stephanie was very engaging.

Ridiculous waste of time and money. Tour guide was very nice and enthusiastic, but the stories seemed to be fabricated and drawn out.

Our guide was named Stephanie and she was a delight. The tour does involved some uphill areas, but if you can handle it totally worth it. We learned so much about Providence and its legendary ghosts from hp lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe and loved all the stories that went along with it. We had perfect weather and the perfect... More

Previous reviews mentioned being guided by a man that was a very entertaining, that is NOT what we had. Our hostess tripped herself up several times during her recitation, lacked enthusiasm, and just made the whole tour seem really cheesy. Not at all scary, or even interesting. We left about an hour into the trip, and we weren't the only... More

Smoking tolerated, weakly written below average ghost stories, poor tour guide, overall poorly executed. Don't waste your money!

I have been on a few ghost tours and being in Providence for a few nights for my cousins dance competition, I was excited to find something educational, historial, and paranormal to occupy my time. And it was fabulous! I was not disappointed. Our tour guide was exceptional and very knowledgable. You could tell Kelly enjoyed her job and showed... More

Never have been in a Ghost Tour and so decided to try it out. Really enjoyed it. Learned a lot about the history of Providence and some of its darker and eerie secrets including that the founder had tree roots wrap around him in his grave. Very interesting, very fun, enjoyed the tour. Worth the time and money. I recommend... More

Met our tour guide in front of the Roger Williams statue at Prospect Park (look for the lantern!). She was fun and entertaining from the beginning and had lots of stories and information to share. We didn't capture any ghosts on our tour but it was still a great way to see parts of the city and learn some of... More
