Please don't waste your time. Please don't waste your money. What you get for your time and expense are rambling stories that were mostly about what other guests felt during prior tours. The guide spent much of his time talking about the other tours you could take, a book that was available for sale, and the tips he was hoping... More

First off - our guide Kitty was great! She obviously enjoyed her gig and was a great story teller. That afternoon we were grumpy and bored. Our legs hurt, we were tired, waa waa waa. Well, as soon as the tour started we all forgot all those little issues and were totally immersed in the stories and buildings. I definitely... More

We went on the Ghost Walk of Old Wilmington. Our guide, Deborah, was great at telling us about her personal experiences with the different ghosts. It was a fun way to learn about some of old Wilmington's history.

Our guide Jamie was very good. He was personable, funny and very informative. Wonderful way to spend a few hours. We heard six ghost stories centered around old Wilmington and were told the stories outside the home or business where the story originated. The 8:30 tour was done after sunset which enhanced the experience. There was a lot of walking.... More

Hubby and I ran across a pamphlet randomly when we came to Wilmington for our honeymoon. We've never been on a ghost walk or tour before. Turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip! Went on the 7:30pm tour, to get out of the heat of the day and enjoy the darkness to go along with the... More

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
