Fantastic Tour!

We highly recommend this tour. Aurora was great to listen to and kept everyone engaged throughout. It was also great to hear about the history linked to the city!

This was a really interesting tour. I wish I had went on the tour my first night so that the next day I could go back and visit the haunted places that were mentioned when the buildings were open. The only reason why I didn't give this tour 5 stars is because unlike some tours, the entire tour is on... More

Stephanie was the best guide - she had a fun personality and kept everyone engaged while she was telling the stories. Whether you believe in ghosts or not (we don't), you hear a lot about the history of Providence and get to see really cool things. I loved being on the Brown quad at night. Great tour!

Took the tour last night. Stephanie was fantastic! Awesome way to learn some history of the East Side and also caught some orbs on camera. Would highly recommend to tourists and natives.

Went with my 17 year old son before he started a class at Brown University. This was a lot of fun. If you like history this tour is for you. My son and I both loved the history we learned about Brown university and it's buildings. Our guide Stephanie was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Glad we tried this!! Would do... More

Really fun. Don't believe in ghosts but, was very cool. Nice stories and great imagery to think about. Hots of walking for my dog and I. Would have loved to visit inside buildings. Alaura was great; answered all my spooky questions.

This is a fun event. Lot's history is shared as you walk between historic buildings. Not sure we saw any ghosts, but than again had some things in our pictures we were unable to explain. Fun time!

I had one evening in Providence and decided to take a Ghost Tour since it was close to Halloween! Our tour guide Stephanie was dressed in Victorian clothing and carried a lamp during our 1.5 hour walking tour. We went by churches, universities, private homes, a design school and more that ALL had some scary history and ghost stories. Stephanie... More
