We love to go on ghost tours when available in whatever city we visit. I was excited about this one because it said it was one of the top ten in the country. It was entertaining but we have been in 6 other tours and they were all better. There were not enough scary stories. It was ok, just not... More

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.

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.

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

Thank you so much for your kind words! Stephanie is fantastic and we are lucky to have her (as we are to have all of our guides!). So glad you enjoyed your evening and we hope your son enjoys his experience at Brown! Very sorry about the confusions re: where to meet and pleased you found us! 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!
