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!

Our tour guide was the founder herself, a very informative tour guide, clearly has a passion for what she does, and an excellent performer when reenacting certain occurrences. Had such a wonderful time! I found about this tour when they had an offer on Groupon for $15, but ended up using a promo code I found online and only paid... More

We stayed in Newport and heard about this tour so we figured we give it a try. Traffic a little crazy,all and all though not to hard to find. The tour was funny,entertaining and educational. Nice walk and view of the city. We all really enjoyed this and had a nice time. Over all worth the trip. Side note there... More

This past October I went on the Providence Ghost Tour with friends. I have previously gone on ghost tours in New Orleans and Charleston, South Carolina. This was by far the worst ghost tour or any type of walking tour I have ever been on. Our guide was new and had difficulty remembering the ghost stories. At each stop she... More

On a quick trip to Providence, I joined this tour at the last minute. I find ghost tours to be an excellent way to see a new city; you learn the history of the city, and the people who shaped it while also visiting important landmarks as well as residential areas. Providence was a beautiful town to take a walking... More

The tour was interesting, both the ghost and history tales, and the view of the historic college hill area was awesome. Our guide seemed knowlegable and did a good job. Nothing too scary, so I think young children would be fine

My friend and I took a ghost tour as a part of a random road trip to Rhode Island. Although there was nothing "spooky" about the tour, we thoroughly enjoyed hearing the stories and seeing historic parts of Providence and learning about its history. Our tour guide, Shawn, was very enthusiastic and did an awesome job. He even recited a... More
