    What to Expect
    Check-in for the ghost tour is no later than 8:45 at the corner of Duval and Caroline Street in front of the Porter Mansion on the Duval Street side. There is a small booth just at the entrance to the property, at the beginning of the 300 block of Duval Street, and that is where you will do your check-in. At 9pm the guide will depart and walk you down Rose Lane for an introduction to the tour which includes some Key West history, terminology used when talking about different spirit sightings, instructions on how to take pictures, and general guidelines. Key West is Florida's second oldest city and one of the most haunted locations in the country. From Rose Lane you will walk to the end of the block stopping at the Casa Antigua, Ernest Hemingway's first Key West residence where he fell in love with Key West and wrote "A Farewell to Arms". You will hear what happened in this interesting building and the ghostly story about The Watcher. The tour then moves up to Eaton Street to the Artist House where you will hear the story of the creepy, Robert the Doll and see where he used to live. Next the tour moves to Bahama Street where the oldest graveyard is located in back of Saint Paul's Church. You are invited to use the dowsing rods at this point to try to engage spirit activity. Just past the graveyard is the Dean-Lopez Funeral Home. This stop is where the strange tale of Count Von Cosel and Elana is related. This story is stranger than fiction, but it's all true and documented. You now will wind back around to the La Concha Hotel and hear what happened at the tallest building in Key West. It's a ghostly tale, but not what you probably think. Next the tour moves to the Oldest House and Gardens to explore the grounds at the back of the house, and hear stories about the family who lived here and learn about the many ghostly sightings. This is the most active location on the tour and many guests get pictures on their cameras. Finally, the tour moves inside to hear the chilling tale of a prominent Key West family at their former residence. As the tour concludes, there is time for stories and picture sharing. The tour is interactive and questions are encouraged. The tour ends at 10:30 across the street from where it started.

    This tour delivered. Our guide was fantastic and knew her stuff. She explained how to catch our “otherly world” friends on film and my daughter actually captured a picture of an orb at the oldest house in Key West. The stories were riveting, creepy and delivered all the goose

    Ted was an amazing guide and mixed in both ghost and non ghost history. Tour was just what we were looking for (non theatrical) with good historical accounts by a very well knowledgeable experienced guide. The walking portion stops a lot so even if you do not like walking you do

    Ted was our guide. Ted was very entertaining and engaging during the tour. We enjoyed the interactive session where he had random participants actively utilize ghost hunting tools. His history knowledge and ability to pull you into the story makes for an engaging and

    Good info, great tour guide - longer, in-depth stories but fewer locations visited than on these types of tours i’ve taken in other cities. 90 minutes long.
