My wife and I went on the Midnight Tour (which starts at 10pm) and we absolutely loved it and recommended it. Just want to give some of the highlights:
The tour starts at the Lilac Tree hotel and works its way to Mission Point, where you have a ghost hunt the last half hour. The walking tour was cool to hear the history of the island, the stories of why it’s haunted, and also the stories of the hauntings that have occurred, past and present. Walking on the streets with no one around hearing these tales is spooky, even if you don’t believe in that kind of stuff, which we really don’t.
As for our tour guides, Anne was our first guide. My wife, myself, and a few other people in the group really did not care for her. Her delivery seemed like she was telling ghost stories to 5 year olds rather than 20 adults. She also lost her train of thought and contradicted herself a few times in the process. She has a lot to remember, so we gave her the benefit of the doubt until at the end she asked for tips in an indirect way. Everyone was just looking at eachother like “did she just say that?!?!”. Totally unprofessional.
Our tour guide in the theater was Lemach, who was GREAT! Totally had great delivery, scared us a few times, and really didn’t try to lie to people just to get them excited. We had some readings on our machine, and he dismissed it right away, where he could have totally lied to us. Thought he was outstanding!
Lastly, the next day my wife and I were walking around Main Street at about 1am and went to the Fort because there were a lot of stories in that area. We went to the staircase where there was no one around, and after getting spooked and leaving heard gunshots in the distance…just like the stories. I don’t believe in that stuff, and I’m not nuts…I’m sure there is a good explanation, but because of that tour it makes you wonder!
Highly suggest it!
