We like going on ghost tours when we travel and this one was probably third best. The guide had some really creepy stories to share and kept up the pace nicely.

Admittedly, I am skeptical of the paranormal when it concerns ghosts, however I have always found that ghosts tours are the absolute best way to get acquainted with a new city. This was no exception, our guide was energetic, knowledgeable, and a great storyteller! tee

Our guide was awesome and the tour was phenomenal. Since there is just so much history in greensboro, i can't be covered in just one tour. Definitely gotta go back for part two.

Learned a lot about the history of downtown Greensboro. Dan was our guide and made the evening fun. We ended up having a private tour and it gave us more time to listen to spooky tales. It was plus that we also stayed at the Biltmore hotel after we knew of the haunted rooms and the tainted past of the... More

While visiting Greensboro for the National HS track and field event our group had the opportunity to relax and see the sights in Greensboro! We were fortunate enough to book a tour with Carolina History & Haunts! The teenagers in our group were excited for a tour that could lead to seeing ghosts. Our guide, Topher, was extremely knowledgeable, informative... More

If you are in town this is a must see. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. If you’re not into ghosts it’s still a must do. The stories and the true history of the area well worth the price. Plus, you can’t beat a good ghost story.

My wife and I decided to do go on a tour for our anniversary, and we are really glad we did! Little did we know when we arrived that it would be our own private tour. But that did not stop our guide, Dan, from giving his all and helping us have a great time. We have lived in Greensboro... More

I had the pleasure of taking my two grandsons on this tour.. It was amazing!! they really enjoyed the stories and seeing the sights that they see everyday in a new way..

Made my parents go on this tour. I'm not from NC. My father is a native and I think he learned some history. I believe Dan was our guide and he was Awesome!!! He was a great story teller and it was great because it was a rainy night and only 5 people were in our group. I would definitely... More
