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.

The tour guise was a great storyteller and I had no idea how many ghost stories there were in Greensboro. Also learned a lot about the area and the history. Very fun experience.

Having recently visited Asheville and taken their ghost walk, I have to admit that our walk here in Greensboro actually was more interesting & informative. Plus the storyteller here in Greensboro kept the crowds attention more also. And I never knew there were so many spooky places here in Greensboro!

My girlfriend and I took the tour, and we had a blast! Everyone in our group was so friendly. Our guide, Topher, was phenomenal. Could not ask for a better experience. I recommend everyone to take the tour, as you will learn so much about the history of Greensboro and some neat hauntings.

Our guide, Dan, is a great story teller and had us hooked from the first few minutes. He walked us around to familiar sites but told us not so familiar stories about things that have been reported. The back stories added some creepiness to the stories. Learned a lot about Greensboro and had a very enjoyable time.

Having lived here my entire life, it was fun to learn about some of Greensboro history that I was unaware of. Topher was great and informative and even stayed after the tour to answer some more of our questions

My friend came for a visit from Arizona and, just for fun, we decided to go on the ghost tour. As it turned out, we had even more fun than we'd hoped for; our guide, Dan, was a wonderful storyteller whose tales of local haunts raised real goosebumps. More than that, however, he described episodes from Greensboro's history in a... More
