We had a nice evening walking around, learning some history and having fun with ghosts! This is a walking tour, so dress appropriately with good walking shoes.

As a long-time Greensboro resident, this was something fun and different to do. I learned a lot about the city's history and Dan and Jessi were very entertaining and great storytellers.

We decided, on a Full Moon night, to take a Haunted Tour in Greensboro. We lived here for a while but learned so much about our city and it's shady, disturbing and haunted past. You really need to try it out! Our tour guide was kitchy, scary and FUN!!! This tour is not for those who cannot walk a great... More

We took the tour in Greensboro under a full moon and loved every moment. It was great to learn so much about the history of my hometown. Our guides were very professional, knowledgeable, and were very engaging storytellers. I was surprised to learn that our tour was Jessi's first night...she already seems like a pro! Thanks for a memorable evening,... More

We learned so much more about the city we have called home for the last 4 years. Our daughter are 12 and 9 and it was awesome to give them this knowledge too. We will return!

I've lived in Greensboro for years, and wasn't even aware this tour existed until recently. The weather was perfect, cool and crisp, and the moon was full. Topher was our guide as our group of 20 traipsed around Elm Street, listening to the nightmarish tales and legends of my adopted home town. He was engaging and knowledgeable; my friend who... More

This walking tour featured stories about the history of Greensboro, as well as hauntings of certain buildings. Chris, our tour guide did a fabulous job. He spoke plainly and very antimated. Our Belgian guest could understand him completely. His stories were fascinating as well as informative. The tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours, but seemed like 5 minutes. Chris was... More

Had a great tour with Dan. Although Hurricane Matthew was showing its ugly self there was a good turnout. Would absolutely do this tour and others again!

Excellent job by guide around downtown Greensboro. I've been on dozens of tours in Charleston, SC, Salem, Mass., and Savannah, Georgia. This guide's storytelling skills are excellent and being born and raised in Greensboro and a history buff myself, all of his information was accurate. It was an excellent ghost and history tour in one.
