Bea was our guide. She was amazing! Her knowledge and presentation was outstanding. We loved the personal touch with the black hat and cape and lantern. They really added to the experience. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Very much enjoyed the tour. The guide was very theatrical and told some good stories. He had a large crowd that night and he worked it well.

This ghost tour was a great time. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves. The guide was very educated on the history it was speaking of. It was so informative and a little spooky, all at once! We would go again.

Visited a variety of haunted locations where the past is palpable. Jeremy, our tour guide, invoked the otherworldly with his style and presentation, while telling true ghost stories.

It was a great night. The ghost tour was interesting and we really liked our tour guide Laurel. We went with four teens and they all enjoyed hearing the stories of haunted Philadelphia.
Fun Ghost tour

Enjoyable tour, expected a bit more in comparison to other ghost tours we have done around the country. She was very good at telling the stories and giving history. Would have enjoyed seeing more sights and less story at each one. Sad no graveyards were included.
