A group of us went on the Greensboro History Haunt and had a blast....and learned a lot about the history of Greensboro. The tour is good for all ages but walking is required. Loved the ghost stories.

Took my scout troop on the tour and they really enjoyed it. They learned a little Greensboro history and were scared a bit too. Our guide Dan was perfect, he was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. Definitely recommend the tour for a date night, teen party or for out of town visitors.

Had a great time walking the streets of Greensboro with lantern guided tour. Very in-depth historically accurate history of Greensboro from its founding to just 3 years ago. Don't worry...this is NOT another yawn of a history tour...it's a scream! Great time for the right price, would go again as the route changes on various nights so the guide can... More

I am very happy my sister and husband invited me to go with them on the tour, when I visited them in Greensboro. Our tour guide, Topher was wonderful. He told the history of Greensboro, especially during the Revolutionary and Civil War, as if we were part of it. The ghost legends were spooky, but very interesting. . I thought... More

Having lived in Greensboro for 2 years now, I was shocked how much I learned about the town (and its ghosts!) through this tour. About 90 minutes in duration, and easily walkable (only a few blocks in either direction from the start). Topher was excellent - was easy to find (granted carrying a lantern helped), engaging, educational, and appropriately scared... More

Last night our garden club of 24 ladies gathered for a memorable tour with Carolina History and Haunts. Our tour guide, Dan, was an excellent storyteller who kept our group of fun, lively ladies spellbound throughout the tour. That's quite a feat! I made reservations for our large group one month ahead of time. Bridget, who took our reservations and... More
