The tour guide provided lots of interesting facts about buildings and landmarks, cemetery and old jail house of Barnstable. However, we did not have any scary encounters. Wear walking shoes & bring bug repellent !!!!

Although we did not experience any ghost sightings or any paranormal activity, this is an excellent Walking Tour and provides a lot of historical information along with interesting folk lore. Would highly recommend you bring bug repellent.

I was somewhat disappointed in the tour. Being from the area and knowing some of the history I expected more stories and more information.mit is something different to do when guest are in town, Just don't expect to much.

I believe the tours are probably closed for the season but it is a walking tour. You probably would have difficulty in the cemetery and make sure you bring a flashlight.
