It is obvious that Thea Lewis loves what she does. She is very knowledgeable of Burlington's history and its ghost stories. She is a good story teller and this ghost tour was very enjoyable. Even our teenage boys enjoyed it! Thank you, Thea.

One of my favorite things to do upon visiting a city is to take a ghost walk tour. I have a 10-month-old baby, so I thought my ghost walk days were on hold for a while, as tours typically start at night after he's in bed. But on a lark, I checked out the ghost walks available for my trip... More

I hired Queen City Ghostwalk to lead a group tour on Burlington's waterfront after a long day of meetings and it was the perfect thing! Thea did not disappoint! The tour was engaging, educational and fun. I've lived in Burlington over 20 years and I learned things about our city on this tour. My colleagues from around the country loved... More

Thea greeted us in a black, flowing hooded cloak and kerosene lantern. I loved how she used names of local employees in the various establishments we viewed, and their eye witness ghostly accounts. As a history buff, I appreciated all the local history of various areas of downtown Burlington. The time flew by as she kept us spell bound!

Thea is a great tour guide. She is fabulous about connecting with large groups, speaks loudly and clearly, and really knows her stuff. She details the paranormal activity that happens at certain places in town. I went on 3 of her tours. I went on Darkness Falls, which is an hour long walking tour in the downtown area; the Tombstone... More

The tour is a one hour walk with stops outside of buildings where paranormal experiences are related by the guide who tells the story and the history of the area. While the tales were thorough, we had a hard time overcoming the lack of setting so for us the "chill" factor was more the temperature that night than the adventure.... More

Such a great time learning about some of the biggest names in Burlington's history while walking through the beautiful Lakeview cemetery on a dark, gorgeous, autumn night. Thea's knowledge of the history and research she has done is extraordinary and is worth the time to learn about some of the local landmarks.

Went on this tour in August 2015 with my wife and teenage son. We had a blast. Thea is so well versed in the haunted happenings in Burlington. We also learned that several infamous historical figures are from Burlington. Take the family you will have a good time

We went with extended family and had a great time. I've lived in Burlington for the majority of my life, but I learned many things I did not know! Our tour guide (Thea?) was delightful. We had a lot of fun as a family but the experience would be a fun and unique date as well. Can't recommend enough!
