My son and I took this tour in early April and had a great time. We love these tours because they are also very informative about the history and culture of the area, not just the ghosts. Our guide was great and even though we were very last minute, they accommodated us and made it work. A great walk through Greenwich Village and Washington Square.

Hi Gottkell,
Thank You for your Review. After hundred's of years of habitation there is no shortage of history or potential ghosts roaming the lower Manhattan area. Greenwich epitomizes an era of time that we take great pleasure in sharing with you today.

Me and one of my very best friends went on this Ghost Tour of Greenwich Village on a lovely February evening. Not only did we get all the gory details this kind of tour requires we also got a comprehensive history lesson of the Village from before the white settlers to the more current Stonewall riots. I can truly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know more about Greenwich Village and like that knowledge to come with a spooky twist!

Becky was our guide.
She was informative, enthusiastic and accountable.
As our tour took place during a lively night in the west village, our tour was more spooky than scary.

I would recommend this tour to others, as it has opened my eyes to the grim history of the west village, however, I have a suggestion for future tours.
May i suggest that you offer a version of the tour that comes with a drink or food item voucher?

I think our tour would be more immersive if we entered some of the bars we were told stories about.

we had an amazing experience ! my sister was visiting me and wanted to do something "different" :D so we decided to sign up for the ghost tour. Our tour guide was super nice and friendly and the tour overall not only spooky but also super informative! I was super skeptical about it first but have to admit I got the chills a few times.

We made plans to go on the tour and we were very excited. Right before the tour was supposed to start, we were contacted and told the tour was canceled. We did not appreciate the late notice. It was too late in the evening to get tickets to anything on Briadway. It was our last night in New York and we wanted to have a fun event to do. We were upset.
