Had a guy named Michael, knew good stories. Wasn't really spooky. Walked a heck of a lot. Got 5 good ghost stories and learned a lot about old Wilmington. Something to do I guess.

Our tour guide's name was Deborah and she was amazing at telling the stories of paranormal activity. She set up the stories in a way that gave you good background while remaining interesting and spooky! Great thing to do in Old Wilmington!!

We took the 6:30pm tour and appreciated that we were given the option to change to the 8:30pm tour due to the heat. We had bottled water and cups of ice and we did the 6:30pm tour any way. Due to the timing, there isn't as much atmosphere but we still loved the tour and that is due to the... More

Our tour guide provided A very comprehensive history of downtown Wilmington. It is also interesting to note that because there is so much history that there are different ghost walk tours. As with all walking tours comfortable shoes are a must, but even more so because of some of the cobbled streets in the area. The tour lasts about 2... More

After reading other reviews and hearing a bit about the rich heritage of this city, I thought this walk would provide an interesting aspect to a few historic events. While the story teller kept our interest, the stories themselves were too detailed with implied drama. We never entered a building! We paused in front of a cemetery but did not... More

My boyfriend and I love ghost stories. This walk was one of my favorite walking ghost tours that's I have been on. You meet at the black cat shoppe. Our tour guide was both funny and a great story teller! Riveting stories of old Wilmington.

I enjoy history, so I really got into that aspect of the tour. The guide was pretty good. It is a lot of walking, especially if you have been traveling all day. Would be cool if they had a way way to transport people around so those with wheelchairs or walking impairments could enjoy. I'd go on another tour, but... More
