Being a local I wanted to try a ghost tour of my town. Great history lesson with an eerie twist. Jordan was an amazing guide. Very informative and entertaining. If you want to learn about Lancaster and it's ghosts... this is for you. Ask for Jordan it and he is totally worth it!!!

Although our guide was well seasoned in the history of Lancaster and its history, he sounded like a wikipedia article read by a male Siri. He was long-winded and sadly we almost bailed before the end of the tour. (This was our 6th ghost tour of different cities and this one was not good). We give it 2 stars only... More

It is hard to review the tour outside of our experience in downtown Lancaster, which was extremely upsetting (enter the berate, screaming and cursing parking attendant), but taking that experience entirely out of the picture, the tour itself was okay. We arrived with 20 minutes to spare and drove through the intersection where the tour departs from 3x in a... More

My mom and I went on the tour during the week in late June. Our guide Jordan was very friendly and entertaining. I have lived in Lancaster County my whole life, but I learned a lot of things that I never heard before. Some of the tour is about ghosts, some of it is jut spooky history of Lancaster. The... More

Donna, our guide, was so sweet and funny! She shared with us her own experiences as well as those involving the sites we visited on our tour. It was informative, a bit spooky, and a lot of fun. Great way to spend an evening.

I thought this tour would be something different to do, since I was born and raised in Lancaster and returned for a visit. I was expecting to be scared by ghost stories, but it was about history and legend sightings. Lame, but was fun walking around Lancaster at night, in a group, without fear of being mugged.

A nice way to spend an hour or so in the evening. Interesting history, nice walk, less than a mile from the square. Group size around 10 was perfect. Our guide was pleasant. The tours are at 9pm. FYI, there are no places open to grab a bite to eat after the tour in Lancaster city. So, make other plans!

Pleasant walk lasting about 1 hour 15 minutes. It was historical, not scary. Tour guide knew the script, but was unable to answer any questions from the group. I was disappointed by the tour guide's lack of depth or breadth of knowledge about Lancaster. Been on much better walking tours elsewhere.

If you like local haunted history, this tour is for you. Our tour guide Jordan, was a great guide. Not only did he tell you what the haunted history of multiple locations around Lancaster, but he also talked about what to expect from the individuals who see the group on the tour. I also appreciated his honesty and passion about... More

This is our second ghost tour ( historic Williamsburg) .. While it would be nice to see ghost one shouldn't base their reviews on it!! Our guide Jordan was great , has wonderful story telling skills .. Just being in such a historic area one should feel the history and assume that they're in the company of our ancestors !!... More
