This informative tour is a series of real folklore stories based on true history, local legends, myths and neighbourhood gossip handed down for years. The tour avoids being corny, but still might manages to give the thrill of goosebumps to a few in the crowd.

It was an entertaining way to see some of the sites and learning a little history. We had children as young as ten and as old as 13 and they all had a good time.

My husband wasn't thrilled with my choice, but by the end even he admitted that the history that you learn made this a great decision. The tour guides are very knowledgeable of the area and the stories they share. We revisited a few of the...More

My wife and I did a similar ghost walk in Key West, so we took three of our grandkids (ages from 10 to 18) on this one. It's a pleasant, entertaining story walk that we all five enjoyed.

The 4 of us were at the 9:30 pm tour. The tour was divided into 2 groups with about 15 people in each group. We spent about 90 minutes hearing stories and visiting some of the sites where certain events occured that resulted in hauntings....More

This ghost walk was entertaining, hadn't noticed how much time had gone by, our guide was a great storyteller. Fun to hear history that isn't on 'normal' tours. Did the 9:30 so it would be darker out.
