After taking a trolley ride a couple days prior to the "walking ghost tour" we decided to take this tour. The tour guide was good considering this was only her second time leading the four of us on the tour. I felt it was informative but, there could of been more information. Overall we had a good time.

Decided to do tour after seeing on a sign while passing. We were the only four doing the tour. Was very informative but not alot of ghost stories just a few. The walk around the city was beautiful and our tour guide was good. Wish was longer with more ghost stories.

Elaines dinner theatre was a terrible disappointment.Food was cold and dinnerware was stained, Server was unattentive.The Play was Downton Stabby and was comical. We will never go there again

We were a group of ten, with two families travelling together. Because of the size of the group, we made a reservation the previous day for a 9pm tour (We were staying in Wildwood) - we arrived 20 minutes early, picked up our tickets and waited as other guests arrived. They had music playing in the courtyard, which was nice.... More

1/2way through the "walking" tour, we ducked down Columbia St., where we were staying, and disappeared into the night. it was a very boring lecture about a few houses in cape may.....why do it at 10;30 pm if there are no eeery ghost stories, but there are countless descriptions about the gorgeous architecture, THAT WE COULD NOT SEE BECAUSE IT...

This is not a SCARY ghost tour. Its really a nice walk around a small section of the Victorian themed town. The tour guides tell jokes while pointing out the haunted stories around town and the history of the town. Its a great time, but not a serious ghost hunting hour. The tour guides are great though. They really talk... More

We enjoyed the walk around the town and our guide was pleasant. The stories and history was incomplete and not fully formed. This tour would be a 5 if the information was better developed. It’s still a fun thing to do but don't expect too much.

Poor! The guide Kristen was BAD! She was not properly dressed--short and flip flops at 11:00 PM--was over tied and hyped up! The Ghost tour was more of a sightseeing tour which is NOT what I paid for!

We had a very disappointing experience on this walking tour. We went on the 10:00PM tour following the dinner theater (which was a lot of fun!). We were having such a good time that we didn't want the night to end and as a result signed up for the ghost tour. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The tour guide, Kaitlyn, was... More

Our family--ages 62 to 6--loved this tour of some of the 'haunts' of Cape May. As many other reviewers have mentioned, our tour guide "Joe" made it very entertaining, including even the youngest in his presentation. He kept us laughing and informed for an hour that passed much too quickly. Spent some time before the tour at Elaine's. The staff... More
