The absolute best ghost tour ever!! We were not sure what to expect as Plymouth was never on my radar as a “haunted” place. We have done ghost tours all over the place, even Savannah and St. Augustine which many believe to be some of the most haunted places in the country and the dead of night tour is better then any of them. Learned so much history and snapped so many photos with encouragement from Jan. Snapped a photo in the mirror in one of the houses and pretty sure I captured something. This tour was great, but note that it is not handicap friendly….stairs in the cemetery and houses, but would highly recommend otherwise

Legitimately scary. This is real ghost hunting. After the tour, including a gorgeous cemetery, you spend another hour in 2 haunted houses. One patron was too scared & left!

Jan is a lovely tour guide. As locals to the Plymouth area, we hadn’t had a chance to do her tour and decided October was the perfect time to go! From the moment we walked in, she was kind and accommodating, top notch customer service. She is very knowledgeable about the Plymouth area, history, and shares spooky photos and encourages the tour to catch their own shots too. Already thinking about going again and bringing relatives when they visit town!

The best time I ever had visiting Plymouth. Jan, our guide, was so fun and really made our night. Definitely a must if you’re looking for something spooky in the Plymouth area.

I attended many of ghost tours. This to be the worst of all. Customer servers was lacking to say the least. Jan Williams was very rude and incompetent to be shown as the face of this business. Jan needs to somehow to tear up that ghostly contract, that was the most scary thing. Bob, the tour guid that we were assigned so that we would be away from Jan, was very hard to hear from the loud crowed we were put with. Three who wanted to yell and talk over bob who was obviously were intoxicated which was specifically called out on a sign which were to be kicked out if caught. Bob was lacking on information, information was only brought from 2019 and forward. The history was lacking like the ghost stories. I would never recommend this tour. It is over priced and not worth your time

Hi am very sorry you ldid not enjoy our tour. My tour is not for everyone. I was not able to accommodate your request for a private group when you showed up late for check in. I explained one of my tour guides has covid and was not able to be with us. We have a very limited amount of guides. Your group was put in with 1 other family. I offered to reschedule you for your private tour. I was notable to give you a discount. I do not own these buildings. The homeowner sets the pricing. I tried to rectify the situation putting you in the smallest group we had. When you went into the houses you did get a private tour.donna another tour guide stayed later to take the other family so your group could have a private tour with Bob in the houses.so u did get a private tour in the houses. The group you were in split. Into 2 private groups. Your group went in one house and the other family you were assigned with went in the other house . So you did get a private tour. We tried as best we could with what we had to work with that night. We have been 5 STARS For Many years. We take pride in what we do. Like I said my tour is not for everyone.

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.

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!!!

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.

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 .
