I have been on a couple of other ghost tours(other cities) and I will say this one was the best! The guide brought so much energy and style to her stories and tour that it just really engaged the group. History and local lore were laced into the telling. It was a pleasent walk with some great buildings to see. She also brought bug spray which was a nice touch!

We are so pleased to have hosted you and to have matched up to other ghost tours! We have so much love for our ghosts. At the start of each tour season, we make an offering of flowers to each spirit, either at their grave site or on their tour stop if we don't know their resting place. It is really a privilege to tell their tales. So pleased that love came through in our storytelling! Thank you for your kind words.

Providence Ghost Tour is the best bet for a truly local and elevated ghost tour experience! Courtney and her guides combine their enthusiasm for local history and theatrical talent to provide an informative and entertaining tour, built right here in little Rhodey by those who know it best. Despite knowing the area and its history well, I have taken the tour multiple times and always recommend it to visitors.

We have taken many ghost tours, and this one was definitely one of the best! The guide, Stephen, was animated and a wonderful story teller. He kept us engaged and even managed to ad-lib the loud music coming from a car into his ghost story.

2 things:

It is a hike to walk up the steep hill to Congdon Street. Take your time and have dinner at one of the restaurants nearby to break up the steep climb.

Please tip your tour guide. My husband and I were shocked at the amount of people who do not.

Whether the ghost tales are true or fibbed just a tiny bit for added excitement, our guide was a phenomenal narrator. She had a quirky sense of humor as well. Kudos!

Make certain you are equipped w/ comfortable footwear because you will need it. The tour route has many inclines. Why not log a few extra steps to counteract the extra calories you consume while on vacation? I really wanted to bring my mini flashlight but our tour souvenir was a flashlights. That worked out. It’s worth to hear a different perspective of the artsy, designer Providence you may think you know. We did the 8-9:30pm tour because, honestly, who is adhering to a decent bedtime while on vaca?
We enjoyed it. Providence has an interesting history.

Nope, not fibbed. Just seventeen years of getting to experience these spirits and hearing the stories of others who have had the privilege! I'm glad you enjoyed your evening and would love to pass your words on to your guide. May I ask who was your ghost host?

Travelers to Providence, DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR! It was one of the highlights of our week long visit to the Ocean State. If you have an interest in the paranormal, this is a can’t miss activity. Kelly was our incredible guide for the night and despite a heavy downpour, and wearing period garments that were very heavy, she provided an amazing experience for my wife and me. Her recounting of the history of events in Providence ranged from tragic to touching to terrifying. We captured several great photos of orbs and other images we’re not completely sure of but like to think were spirits looking back at us. Thank you, Kelly for the great night.

Kelly is wonderful. Weather has been cantankerous this spring, but thank you for pushing through and getting lost in the magic of Providence. I appreciate your kind words and am so happy we added something special to your visit to RI.

My fiancé and I went on the ghost tour last night with Kelly as our guide. We cannot recommend this tour enough! Kelly is an engaging story teller and incredibly knowledgeable historian. I enjoy all things spooky, while my fiancé is a bit of a scaredy cat. This tour was perfect for both of us to enjoy together: Kelly is able to perfectly balance the energy of the group by telling grim ghostly tales in creepy locations while sprinkling in humor AND happy ghost stories when needed. She even hung around after the tour ended to show us photos of activity caught on cameras by previous guests on the tour— so cool! 10 outta 10 recommend.

Thank you so much! I will pass this on to Kelly. She is such a wonderful guide (and human)! I always hope that anyone can find something that speaks to them- believers, skeptics, nervous nellies, brave berthas, architecture buffs, history buffs, literature buffs, people who like stories about people, those who like suspense, romantics, and everyone in between. I'm glad you each found joy with the tour and appreciate your review.

Went on my first ghost tour with the company last night. The weather was perfect and my guide, the impeccably costumed Kelly, was phenomenal! We were a small and cozy group, but Kelly gave 100% in bringing the drama and the chills, even with a limited audience to work with. I lived in Providence for a few years awhile back and just returned recently. On the tour, I learned all sorts of things that I didn’t know about the city and its history, some spooky and others just fascinating. I’ll be reviewing my photos later for anything unexpected lingering in the shadows. 👻 Would definitely attend again. Don’t forget to tip your guide! 😊

Thank you so much! Our early season tours are often small and offer such a nice opportunity to have a more intimate experience. Can't wait to see your pictures! And thank you for shouting out Kelly- she is marvelous!

Shelley, the ghost host with the most, gave one of the best tours I have ever had. My husband and I loved learning the dark history and stories of Providence, it was one of the most fascinating cities I've ever visited. While I am still unsure if we encountered anything (see the attached photo from H.P. Lovecraft's house), I will say that this tour was so much fun and a great way to get to know the city. I will recommend this to anyone who plans on visiting Rhode Island.

Beautiful walking tour of Providence with some interesting information. However, in terms of it being a ghost tour I’d give it one star. We saw nothing, no orbs, nothing creepy at all and the stories were more historical than scary. I’d suggest that they have hard copies of photos they are referencing and curate some indoor spots.

The walking trip through the East Side with the PGT is truly worthwhile. The PGT folks are highly knowledgeable local historians, experienced paranormal researchers and gifted storytellers. This unique opportunity is absolutely worth your time - very highly recommended!
