    We're frequent Viator customers and have never had a bad experience until this one. Lacey did not hold the attention of the audience, basically no ghost stories and supplements with personal experiences which are boring. Very disappointing!

    Bryce managed to make a Halloween night ghost tour in pouring rain completely worth getting drenched. The tour was fun and funny, dramatic and informative. Bryce did a good job of making the stories come to life.

    Ashley and Lacy were excelled guides and really brought the stories to life! I recommend this for anyone who likes ghost stories and history.

    Our guide for the night, Adonis was excellent. They were very knowledgeable and their stories were fun and entertaining!

    Although was amazing Adonis and gave a wonderful tour, we paid for a 90 minute tour. Only 60 minutes. Not much organization of where all the people who showed up for the tours should go.

    I thought it was a very good experience. Bryce did a great job of story telling, made the stories come to life, had a great sense of humor and was great with the audience.

    I think the guide was very knowledgeable and it became a good history lesson of the area which made it interesting. The group was very large and because there were so many other groups roaming around at the same time it would have been much better if she had a microphone system so people at the back could hear better. Some people left early because of that issue.

    My favorite part of the tour was the interesting stories told by our friendly tour guide, Katherine. We also caught an actually ghost 👻 on our phone camera.

    The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining. It was a little drizzly the night we went and they were kind enough to provide umbrellas to guest that did not have one. The ghost stories were fun and I learned a lot about the history of the town as well. Great fun, highly recommend!
