My wife and I took the ghost tour on 8/26/16. The tour guide knew a lot about the history of the town. I love history and ghosts so it was the best thing I could have done in HF. Highly recommend it.

Our innkeeper at The Ledge House B&B suggested this tour and it was definitely worth the price our guide was well versed in the history of the area and most importantly was a good story teller. There was a fairly large group this evening but he did a good job keeping everyone engaged.

This was our second ghost tour in Harper's Ferry. The first was with our daughter when she was about 7yrs. old and now it's with her and our two grandsons, 8 and 11. This tour was by far the best of the two. Rick Garland was our tour guide and his skill set brought the stories to life. I your... More

So my wife and I caught this tour by happenstance just after dinner. She is not one to fancy such a tour as she is easily frightened. But it is my birthday and she has to do what I want! Rick is a fantastic story teller and living historian. He is legit and entertaining. We learned more about the ongoing... More

Perfect for those who don't believe in ghosts and those who do! Great stories of the Town's Ghosts, Legends and History. Captivated from start to finish. Easy walk around Town. Definitely a must-do!

This is a great thing for families to do. A bit silly, if you don't believe in ghosts, but it's wonderful to see Harper's Ferry at night, when there are few people on the street and the stars are out. The surrounding natural scenery and well-preserved 19th century buildIngs are hard to beat. The guide is knowledgeable and light-hearted.
