Sam was wonderful! We learned a lot of history that we may not have learned just walking around by ourselves. Wasn't too creepy for our child either. Great job!

Our tour guide was Sam. He was lots of fun to walk around town with. His stories were very interesting and intriguing. They weren't very spooky but it didn't matter because the tour and the walk was just wonderful. It was daylight when we started out and slowly grew dark which added to the suspense. We loved walking around the... More

My sister wanted to do something local and different for her bachelorette party. So we decided on the Spirits of '76 Ghost Tour. It was a group of about 14 of us for the bachelorette party, plus maybe 10 others in the tour. I booked through Expedia.com (although you can book directly through the tour's website). Expedia gave us up... More

We took this tour as an add-on to our more general historical tour. We were really glad we did. Tour guide Melissa was interesting and knowledgeable. We felt like we got tons of cool info, not just about ghosts and such, but about the buildings, churches, parks, and cemeteries we visited. Check it out.

My wife and I took this tour on Friday, October 30th, 2015. It was a good way to get fresh air, walk off our wedding anniversary dinner, and enjoy Center City after dark. The guide, Jenna, was lovely, but we have experienced far better guides elsewhere, including Philadelphia.

We moved up our dinner reservation so had the whole evening. We were in town for such a short period of time and I had read about these tours so we went for it. It was this or watching TV in our room! That wasn't happening!! Travis was our guide and he is a great story teller. We had an... More

Guide seemed in a hurry to finish the tour. He was inattentive and kept walking away from the group, especially after crossing streets. Did not seem especially knowledgeable about anything that wasn't part of his tour lecture. Can't recommend.

My guide told interesting stories that really made you think about the possibility of them being true. I've been on many ghost tours that were disappointing or just not at all entertaining, but this wasn't either of those.
