“Excellent family activity!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

We took the Ghosts & Legends tour during April vacation week. Our guide mixed ghost stories with the history of Plymouth in an entertaining and engaging manner! My boys, ages 8 & 10, thoroughly enjoyed the tour that lasted over two hours. We would do this tour again!

“Ghost Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Ghost Tour was a lot of fun and very interesting. There was a lot of walking (including hills) but our guide knew great stories and it made for a very entertaining experience.

“Best Historical Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

This tour was fantastic! One of the docents gave us the tour, we got a couple of really interesting pictures! My mom is a skeptic and a hobby photographer with a pretty nice camera. She was very suprised at the way some of the pictures turned out. I'll try to upload the best one. My dad also had an interesting experience; on the stairs he thought he touched someones hand and when he turned around to say excuse me no one was there! Be sure to take lots of pictures at this location.

We also got some interesting pictures with orbs at the cemetery. My mom was very surprised since they didn't show up in all the night pictures and her lens usually filters out dust or other particles. Spooky.

Do this tour if you're a history buff, are interested in the paranormal, or if you're just looking for a good story! Two thumbs way up.

“Wow! What a tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

My husband and I took this tour while visiting Plymouth. Our tour guide Joyce was excellent and so full of knowledge. Her stories were captivating, and the tour went a full two hours, which was 30 minutes longer than schedule. Walking through Old Cemetery Hill at night was very scary. This tour is also filled with so much genuine history as well as haunting stories. This tour is a must if you are staying the night in Plymouth.

“What An Amazing Tour and Insight to Plymouth!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

Thank you Colonial Lantern Tours and Diane Finn. Diane and her guides gave 60 people ( 40 5th graders and 20 adults) and\ exciting and engaging view into life in Plymouth in the 1600's. Replete with hands-on experiences and ghostly tales, this company accommodated us at the 11th hour after we found out our tour to Sturbridge Village was cancelled due to power outages. Kudos to these wonderful folks who came through at the last moment with finesse and excitement!
