Four years ago, my husband and I went on the Ghost Walk and had a fabulous time. Our guide was both funny and informative. It was a great way to take in the sights and learn a little bit about Wilmington's spooky history.
Since each tour stops at different locations and tells different stories, we took it again this year thinking we would hear some new stories. We did for the most part. However, our guide was just horrible! He wasn't mildly funny or interesting. He gave a long history lesson on the places we saw and then would take less than two minutes to tell us about the ghost that haunts the location (almost as if it was an after thought). What's worse is he would lose focus and get side tracked. At one point he rambled on about how far the cell phone has come in 10 years! One story he told wasn't scary but he told it because it involved a dog and he loves animals. That started a 20 minute story about some guy and his dog.
I don't know if maybe the people who run these tours decided they would make more money by lengthening the stories and going to fewer spots so as to encourage you to take more tours to cover all the haunted spots in town or if we just got a bad storyteller.
Despite what I say in this review, it's a must see. You may have better luck. Wilmington is so rich in history, I encourage you to take the gamble and go one any of the tours offered in town. You'll learn at least one interesting fact and you'll be contributing to their economy and preserving their historic downtown.
