I found this tour to be very LONG and depressing. The building is not clean and it is not well ventilated. I was coughing all evening after being there. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it was not what I experienced. Not recommended!

Everyone was very friendly and was willing to help in any way with the ghost hunt. The guides were very knowledgeable with the history of the building and surrounding grounds.
