As a habitual skeptic, I don't believe in ghosts. After this tour, I can tell you, I do believe in fantastic storytelling and showmanship!

Rick has set the 'Gold Standard' in Ghost Tours. As a historian, Rick provides interesting and well researched history about Harper's Ferry. His storytelling was funny, well-timed and eerie. I would recommend this Ghost Tour to anyone who dares to have amazing time!

This tour was full of history and mystery. The tour guide was beyond informative. It was pouring down rain so we returned to the Church to finish our tour using photos but the stories were just a great. Recommend doing this to anyone. Over 2 hours of historic information.

This was the best ghost tour we have ever been on. It was very cold that night, so Rick kept us inside the church for a a full 2 1/2 hours of pure entertainment! He sang, told ghost stories, and recounted the history of Harper’s Ferry. It was story telling at its best! In this day in age it’s hard to keep people’s attention for any length of time, Rick does it flawlessly!
