I highly recommend the Ghost & Graveyard Tour, especially if you can manage to get Jimmy as your tour guide. He's fantastic at his job and really made the experience what it was. Super knowledgeable, great sense of humor, and doesn't just "phone it in"...More

It would be better named History and Legends tour. There isn't anything scary about the tour or the stories, although a small cemetery at night can be unsettling. Aside from the Carlyle House, the stories were more myth and legend than anything historically accurate. That...More

Jimmy gave us the best tour- he didn’t quicken the experience even though we were getting soaked with wind and rain. It was insightful, fun, and well deserved worth the trip! We took the south tour and will be back for the north side soon!!

We took the ghost tour staring at 9pm so it was dark and the atmosphere would be appropriate. It was great walking through the old historic town getting a blend of history and ghost stories. Our guide was Jimmy and he was great! A great...More

This tour is more historical than ghostly, but was great fun. Definitely worth a try. The customer service when emailing an enquiry was great.
