Great tour

Great tour with lots of history. Tour guide was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and fun. Perfect tour for people who are new to the hair.

Not worth the price
When we got to the meeting place for the tour, our guide was there just scrolling on her phone. She asked if we were there for the ghost tour then went straight back to her phone. When she started the tour (15 min late) she didn’t introduce herself (I still have no idea what her name was), didn’t welcome us, just told us to follow her across the street. She really seemed not to care about giving a good tour at all. Her story telling often failed to connect the dots unless someone asked. Why does Cornelius Vanderbilt’s ghost haunt a Yale dormitory? I asked, but I’m not sure she knew the answer, other than the building is named after him, which doesn’t really make sense. I could go on, but you get the picture. The tour was advertised as 90 minutes but ours barely lasted 60 minutes. Not worth the money.

Unprofessional, Flakey & Cancelled on Us
Tried to reserve a tour on 12/19/20 for me, my bf and my friend and her date, but the employees within this company were unprofessional. First time the manager called he asked if me and my group could reschedule to the 18th, which I said no because we honestly couldn't. Next he called me 2 days prior to the 19th to ask if we could reschedule our tour from the designated 7:30pm time to 9:30pm because his tour guide was working another job. Although I already felt the scheduling issues were unprofessional, I decided to work with New Haven Ghost Tours. I know it's been a hard year, so no problem, I moved all my dinner reservations around so 9:30pm could work. The day of, maybe 3 hours prior, I received a call stating our tour guide had sprained his ankle and couldn't give us a tour. After receiving the previous two calls it is very difficult for me to believe just 3 hours prior to our tour that our tour guide in fact had sprained his ankle. If it is true, then I hope he gets better soon. Regardless, the several phone calls asking me to move my schedule around was unprofessional. If the tours are advertised as Friday & Saturday nights at 7:30pm, I'm not sure why their employees wouldn't be available. I have a marketing and customer service background so I understand stuff happens, but the multiple strikes of unprofessionalism/flakiness made a sour impression on me. If New Haven Ghost Tours had advertised their business hours as based on availability and/or had let me know from the first phone call that Saturday was very difficult for them, then no problem, I wouldn't be writing this review. Again, stuff happens and we can't control everything. What we can control is how we respond to a situation and I felt in this case, New Haven Ghost Tour handled this unprofressionally.

Nov 2020 • Friends
Our guide had a good energy that just made me want to listen to every word she had to say. Advice to others is to wear walking shoes and dress for the weather although I had no issues personally. It was a great experience that made me feel much more connected to the area.

Madeline Morbid was the best!
Oct 2020
We went on a ghost tour of new haven with Madeline Morbid (we loved the name!) and it was fascinating. So much history and eeriness happening in familiar places. Madeline Morbid was very knowledgeable, engaging, and made the otherworldly feel close!

One of the best ghost tours on the east coast!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Madeline Morbid was an excellent tour guide! We've done ghost tours up and down the east coast (Boston, Tampa, Savannah, Burlington, St. Augustine, and more) and this one ranks as one of the best. It was very informative, and our guide went into a lot of the sordid history of New Haven, not only ghost stories (but there were plenty of those, too!). I highly recommend.

Great evening activity!
We came to drop our adult daughter at her new apartment in New Haven. What to do these pandemic days that is casual, informative, involves some moving about (after a long day on the road!), and is appealing for all ages? Voila the ghost tour! We were toured about by the terrific, expressive, knowledgeable Madelyn Morbid. I was surprised how right it was—we could chat together as a family as we walked the short distances around, but also were regaled with some fun “insider” stories about history & place via tales of local ghosts and spirits. I highly recommend it.

Poor... would not recommend.
Jul 2020 • Family
The tour guide (Kelly) didn’t know much about the history of the city, and didn’t make the ghosts interesting at all. We were given obvious information that could be read on plaques on the wall (Yale buildings have a blue plaque - that says ‘Yale’) or easily found by ourselves. Covid made it difficult as we couldn’t go inside anywhere, but that would have only improved it marginally. In need of serious improvement to make it interesting and worth anywhere near $25 per person.
