Eric, a history and social science teacher in Eureka led the tour with a very thorough knowledge of the hauntings that had been reported to him by the owners of the various locations where these ghosts reside. He never asserted seeing or encountering these ghosts, but related what had been said or shared with him by those experiencing the ghosts.... More

Eric V, Owner at Old Town Haunted History Ghost Tours, responded to this review

Thanks Dr. V. While we have had many guests claim they have felt or experienced our local spirits, the question is often asked, "Do you believe there are ghosts" Our response borrowed from one of our building owners, "do you want there to be"? Thanks for the review, Eric V. More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the old town haunted history ghost tour. Eric was extremely knowledgeable about the history and lore of Eureka. The haunted twist to this tour was excellent and alot of fun for those who enjoy a good ghost story. The tour was over 2 hours and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour!

This tour was much better and longer than expected. Charlie was very knowledgable and entertaining! We enjoyed the stories and special effect provided by a beautiful full moon! Thank you for the interesting information Charlie! My son Jacob was visiting from Michigan and loved it! My husband and I are local, and we will be back for your history tour.... More

I met Eric through the restaurant I work at which is on the tour as having a spirit ( it does).I really enjoy his stories so I put together a group of Coast Guard spouses to take the tour. It was AMAZING! It is not just about the spirits that may still be around but also a wonderful history lesson... More

Fun, fun,fun! I have been here since1989 and thought I knew most everything about the area, this tour taught me just a little bit more! Plus, the Eagle House has some very "special" surprises!!! Penny (P2RN)

My daughter, and friends, took the tour and had a blast. It was great fun to hear about the history and bawdy past of Eureka. One of the stops was the hotel we were staying at, the Eagle House Victorian Inn. Betty, the desk clerk, and assistant manager, took us down dark hallways and showed us rooms that had reputations...

This was so much fun! Really enjoyed hearing about the history and the baudy and colorful past of Eureka. Our tour guide Eric was so friendly and took his time to tell us all the ghost stories from the area. I really enjoyed that this was not just a "ghost tour" but that Eric shared the history (good and bad)... More

While researching online for fun things to do in Eureka, we came across this intriguing tour on its haunted history. Driving up north from the Bay Area, I wish we had made a reservation earlier in the week, but we weren't sure what the drive would be like or if we'd arrive in time for a tour at all. We... More
