Excellent tour and very informational. Very interactive with guest and loves to share stories and give advice. The guide also lets you interact when he is talking about history. Jokes and has fun. Highly recommend this tour for Harpers Ferry night time.

So much fun and informative! Rick certainly knows a lot about the area and it was an enjoyable time! I really liked the combination of history and ghost stories. I did feel very anxious about showing up without a formal reservation, the voicemail states clearly you will not receive a call back to confirm your reservation and will only receive a call back if there was a problem. Without this confirmation I was very worried that I would show up find no tour, but I was relieved when Rick was there. I would just recommend a formal booking system in addition to accepting walk-ups to help this feeling that other people may experience.

Thank you for your review, kind words and for attending my Ghost Tour! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! As is Harpers Ferry, I am stuck in the 19th Century and do things the old fashioned way. You call, make a reservation, I'm there to conduct your tour. You show up, you pay cash, you don't show up, no harm, no foul. Online reservations mean a whole lot more paperwork, fees paid to 3rd parties, refunds when someone does not show, etc., etc., etc., again don't show up, don't pay, simple. Plus lower expenses, and lower cost to you, our customer(s)! Comparable Ghost Tours (not as highly rated) charge $20 to $35 per person, because of all the additional expenses they must bear, while my tour is able to be very moderately priced at just $16 per person! Thanks again! Rick Garland Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry
