Although we did not see any actual ghosts during our time on the tour, the storytelling and ambiance throughout historic Wilmington during the 90 minute walk about was well worth the cost. Our guide (Laurie I believe ) was knowledgeable and spoke with sincerity and...More

This was the 1st haunted pub crawl I have done and Wilmington is a great place to do it. Many things about the tour were good. We found some bars off the beaten path you probably wouldn't know about as a visitor. The tour starts...More
