Lived in Lancaster all my life and decided to take a Ghost Tour in my hometown. Learned lots of history that I wasn't aware of with a spooky twist to it. Our guide was a female, (sorry cannot remember her name) but she was extremely...More

We left our hotel plenty early and arrived at least twenty min before departure at 8:00pm. We circled about three times before finding the building. After that we couldn't find any parking! It was about 8:15 when I decided they probably left. I sent an...More

Although our guide was well seasoned in the history of Lancaster and its history, he sounded like a wikipedia article read by a male Siri. He was long-winded and sadly we almost bailed before the end of the tour. (This was our 6th ghost tour...More

It is hard to review the tour outside of our experience in downtown Lancaster, which was extremely upsetting (enter the berate, screaming and cursing parking attendant), but taking that experience entirely out of the picture, the tour itself was okay. We arrived with 20 minutes...More

Donna, our guide, was so sweet and funny! She shared with us her own experiences as well as those involving the sites we visited on our tour. It was informative, a bit spooky, and a lot of fun. Great way to spend an evening.

I thought this tour would be something different to do, since I was born and raised in Lancaster and returned for a visit. I was expecting to be scared by ghost stories, but it was about history and legend sightings. Lame, but was fun walking...More

A nice way to spend an hour or so in the evening. Interesting history, nice walk, less than a mile from the square. Group size around 10 was perfect. Our guide was pleasant. The tours are at 9pm. FYI, there are no places open to...More
