We had a wonderful time, as always, on Ghost Tours of the OBX. Our guide this time was the costumed Dread Pirate, Diane. We have toured with Keith, too, who is also awesome. We learned the meanings of a number of popular culture terms that...More

Matt was our guide - he did a great job. He is an awesome storyteller, putting a modern fun twist on all the historical info. The teens thought it was fun to hold the EMF detector, it went off several times, Matt took the time...More

This was the worst tour that I’ve ever been on. The tour guide offered very little factual/historical data and told random stories the entire time that had little relevance to the outer banks. I considered leaving in the first 10 minutes because Diane was so...More

Well worth the 15.00 price. We had Julia and she was very knowledgeable about OBX history, and shared fun ghost stories. The walk through the village was beautiful and we learned about new sights to check out next year.

We took the ghost tour. It was a beautiful walk around Manteo. The tour is historically entertaining and informative. The guides dress in period costumes. It is not scary but worth the money.

Yes, my mom went with us and she’s 79. It’s a leisurely pace & there are places to sit at a couple of the stopping points.
