My daughter and I love ghost tours, this one was fun but not totally what we were expecting. While we walked around the town of Sitka and saw and heard some amazing stories we were a little disappointed that we didn't go into any of the buildings. Our tour guide was dressed the part and did do a great job of story telling. If you want something light and easy to do, we would recommend this tour.

I'm a little confused by this review since the tour does go into several of buildings. I'm glad you enjoyed the stories and the shared history of Sitka.

I love taking ghost tours of any place I visit; you get to walk around areas you probably wouldn't otherwise know about, you learn the local history, and get a few spooky stories in the mix. This one did not disappoint. Because it was in the daytime, I especially liked that the guide included local shop owners and walked us into and around other businesses. She did a great job giving shout outs to other people, and I liked her sense of community. Fun fact: she makes her own costumes that she wears during the tours. I highly recommend this tour!

It was wonderful having you on the tour! I do wish your friend would have been able to join in, but it will just have to happen next time. I love going into the buildings as well and am always looking for ways to improve the tour. Your review is very thoughtful and again, thank you!

The ghost tour is excellent providing a perfect mix of learning about Sitka and its history with a fascinating narrative about the ghosts that have survived the history. Ellen was a wonderful storyteller and guide. We highly recommend this tour, whether privately booked or through ur cruise line.

The retelling of the ghost stories was interesting but several people in our tour voiced that they were disappointed that they could not see the sites (interiors of buildings) of these stories. The highlight was the Russian cemetery as it was so unusual with no order or layout. We were given time to walk around ourselves. At another location, the tomb of the Russian princess was pointed out but we did not get close nor learn anything else (who was this princess?). I suggest do a walking tour on your own.

Thank you for your feedback. I’ve taken it into consideration and have made adjustments to my tour. Fortunately, you’re tour was a long time ago and things have changed since you were last in Sitka. I look forward to the new, more recent reviews that reflect on how wonderful this tour really is!

I visited Sitka for a few days on vacation and decided to add Emily's ghost tour into my trip and I am glad I did! She gives a very thorough and interesting history of the town, including many different buildings and the Russian cemetery. I would recommend this tour to anyone :)
