The ghost tour was just okay. It was a lot of walking, but I don't feel like we "saw" a lot. We took the 9:30 tour on a Saturday and it lasted about 10 minutes short of two hours! Plan accordingly. I feel like this...More

Our tour guide made this ghost tour great. I think his name was Javar? He added dramatics to his story telling. The period costume adds a nice touch. He added a level of spookiness to the stories that had many in our tour group very...More

The tour guide was nice but not a particularly gifted story teller; the stories could probably use a bit of work in terms of humor or pacing or both. I found my attention lagging as some of the stories took a bit longer than they...More

Our guide made the ghost tour very enjoyable. He had a lot of knowledge of the history of Philadelphia. We had a large group on the tour and he entertained everyone. The tour went on just over an hour and we walked several blocks.

Good historical tour with history of hauntings in the area. Several tour guides were available. Our guide was great. Children would probably be bored on the tour as it is a lot of listening to history but for adults it was very interesting.

As is the case with most "ghost tours," this one provides you with a lot of history, some spookiness, and a good deal of fun.

It kinda depends on the child. Most likely a teenager age group would be best. It's not a scary ghost tour. But the tour guide we had was a bit of a dramatic actor and was very good at delivering his stories in a spooky... More
