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

Very good tour! We have three children ages 7, 11, & 13. And they all had a good time. Very interesting story telling and nice tour through a beautiful city! Topher was very nice and answered all our 7 year olds questions. Thank you.

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
