“STOP what you are doing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Call and make a reservation right now! There is a reason this is the #1 attraction in HF. What a treat. Rick is extremely knowledgeable and isn't shy about his feelings concerning the history of HF. If you want an honest, educational and very enjoyable tour, you will be pleased. It starts out a little slow in his house (but not painfully). But it amps up quickly as you tour about the town. And don't be shy about questions. Rick has an opinion and education about most things HF. I promise you, you will walk away smarter and happier.

“Nice guy, good story teller”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We went on his ghost tour of Harpers Ferry. It happened to be freezing the night we went. I think it was a good value and he is very nice and entertaining. This is a great thing to do if you need some Harpers Ferry entertainment.

“joyful indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Rick is a treasure! After a long day on our bikes we were energized by Rick's singing and storytelling. He involved the whole group and we all left with smiles on our faces and songs in our hearts.

“Historical Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Rick is a great tour guide, able to weave the local historical context of Harpers Ferry into the larger national political sphere. A totally enjoyable three hours in Harpers Ferry. Before we went on the tour my wife wondered how it could take a whole three hours to see the town. Afterwards she was full of praise for the tour and found taht the three hours flew by!

If you want to really understand and enjoy Harpers ferry take this tour.

“Ghost Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Rick was a great historically accurate story teller. He made it fun and educational. You can tell that he knows his history and enjoys helping others learn about it in an interesting way. There were several young people in the group that seemed to also really enjoy the tour.
