Great stories deserve a great storyteller, and that’s what was delivered. Tons of history both fact and and personal experiences of others. I recommend this to anyone visiting Plymouth. And our guide was was generally knowledgeable about the area, food recommendations at 10pm on Sun, which are kind of hard to find.

Jan the owner is amazing, her ability to keep you on the edge of your seat with her ghost stories which are based on historically factual information is fun. Then she brings out these incredible photos that either she or former tour takers have taken to bring life to them. I was not much of a believer in ghosts but I am now, definitely take this tour and find out for yourself.

Thank you for the positive and great review. I try to have fun entertaining our guests and bring our spirit pictures to life. Not everyone believes in spirits but I say, just keep and open mind.. I cant make things happen but when it does.. It is very exciting. I am so glad we made you a believer!!! Thank you for coming to dead of night ghost tours!!!

I had a great experience, and enjoyed the tour. I got to learn about the history, view the town square, walk the oldest street in New England. The guide was a good story teller and she made some really cool sound effects while telling the stories. It was something that was fun to do while there.

Tonight I attended the Dead of Night Ghost Tour. The tour was overall not bad, Bob was entertaining, if somewhat racist. However, the tour was marred by the absolute abhorrent reception that we received when we came to check in for our tour. We booked our tour in July, and confirmed last week. When we arrived, Jan informed us that, even though we did had confirmation for our private tour, we would not have a private tour. She also proceeded to gaslight us and tell us that there was no way we could have booked a tour. She berated us and openly mocked us in front of other families, which made us uncomfortable attending the tour moving forward. Her behavior ruined the experience, and I would not recommend going on this tour.

So sorry you did not have fun. We tried the best to accommodate your group. I did not have another tour guide . You did get a private group in the houses . When you came in the door I welcomed you. Loving your neon green shirts. Again i am sorry . I don't know what I could have done better. Your group was the last to check in ... i it was just us in the shop. I don't know what you are talking about.

The scariest thing about our experience was the lack of customer service! We’d booked a private tour and confirmed MONTHS ago and we’re told last minute that it was not possible because of staffing. Our tour guide, Bob, lacked any sort of crowd control and had our group stop in the middle of the street multiple times. They handed out lanterns before the start and mine started smoking and leaking fumes.

In terms of the content, the tour was very dry and our guide spent most of the time reference the Covid pandemic. The only thing I learned was that the dead are buried 6 feet underground which, coincidentally, is the height of the bar for finding a better ghost tour in the area.

Again I am sorry my tour guide was sick. I tried to make the best of what we had. I could not make another tour guide just suddenly appear. I am truley s orry. The lanterns we use have lamp oil in. And If you swing them lamp oil my leak . If you turned up the wick... yes it will smoke... what can I say!!!

If I could give no stars, and curse Jan Williams, I absolutely would. She spoke to me like I was a child and refused to admit that she couldn’t fulfill the reservation like we agreed. I’ve been on ghost tours in several states and would never recommend this place to someone else. Very few ghost stories and absolutely no flair to be found. Jan is the scariest thing about this place and she isn’t worth your money.

Again to each and everyone in your group ... I am sorry. You did get a private tour in the houses. Donna my other tour guide took out the other family and Bob took your group into the houses . . Again my tour is not for everyone. Sorry you didn't enjoy .

I’m not sure what I expected but this tour was not very enjoyable. The host is a story teller but some comments were made up; real estate records are searchable so an entire story about a house being bought and ghosts discovered then sold and bought again with ghosts still there was not needed since it was not true. Stick to history, which you know a lot about.
It really was a history tour with stops to look at cell phone pictures of “spirits”
I did learn a lot Plymouth history, which was very interesting but the over the top stories about ghost hunting were just contrived. The story set ups were very obvious. We departed the tour early.

I'm Sorry you did not enjoy our Ghost Tour. We do get some of our stories from people that buy or rent these houses in the historic district. I need to know who and why they haunt.. Our pictures we show are taken by our guests that have been on previous tour and. I m excited to show and share them. That is validation that spirits exists! My ghost tour is not for everyone. Sorry

My experience started off with aggressive and inconsiderate customer service from Jan. It created so much anxiety that I was unable to enjoy the (underwhelming) tour given.

Some of our tour mates were loud and inconsiderate, but our guide did nothing to manage the situation. I was left to address intoxicated, rowdy men. I had a hard time hearing over them, but there wasn’t much content to hear anyways.

Many of the walking paths were uneven or steep. No warnings were given at the beginning or during the tour. I’m surprised our drunk friends didn’t fall.

Wished I had spent my money and time in Plymouth differently. Wasted part of my trip to the east coast.

Just google historical sites on our own and go walk around. Google would have more information AND flair than this tour.

The best part of the tour was walking past the bar down the street since their playlist was pretty good.

So sorry you did not like my tour. The other family you were with was not intoxicated. I checked them in . We have a strict no drinking policy. We have signs displayed everywhere. The family from my understanding were having fun and getting fantastic pictures. They were getting into the tour. Burial hill is the highest place in plymouth. There are stairs yes that burial hill is 400 years old ...yes the paths will be uneven. I cannot help that. You are walking threw oldest part of plymouth. My tour is not for everyone.

We were recommended this particular tour by a friend. It was easy to book, affordable, and very enlightening. The cemetery section was informative and spooky, and the house tours were extremely fun and spooky! I highly recommend this tour and experience for anyone who is open to having a real spooky experience.

Our host was very strict and not very friendly. She spoke to us like we were children. Not impressed with this ghost tour and we have been able on many! It was difficult to hear her and when showing us different houses on streets she would just shine her flashlight down the street and not specify which one she was talking about. Not impressed and glad we didn’t book the 2 hour tour! Maybe a different host would have made it better but unfortunately we wouldn’t know.

Im am very sorry you did not have a positive experience. We do stress safety. The paths we travel can be very busy or narrow and we must stay together as a group. We. may have to repeat several times for everyone to lhear. I wish you had spoken up to your tour guide. that you were unsure as to which house she may have been speaking of. or you that couldnt hear. We try very hard to give everyone a pleasant and wonderful experience. But We need to know while tour is going on so we can correct it.
