We had a lovely time on the tour, were introduced to some great, lesser-known bars in the East Village, and got to hear some creepy stories. Gordon (our guide) was knowledgeable and made the night extremely fun.

I did the GhostBuster tour which is in the Upper West side. Our tour Gide Joel was very engaging, informing, theatric, and kind. Loved the experience wish I had cash to tip him.

Interesting stories that combined the history of the buildings and the people/ghosts who inhabited them. The Poe details were great. Prudence was our tour guide and she captures your attention with her storytelling--no overdramatic acting, just good storytelling.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get insight into the history surrounding the Union Square and Village area. Gordon shared so much information about the history of the area you would never discover on your own. To make it even better,...More
