This was not my first time taking a ghost tour. The first was in Princeton, NJ and that one was phenomenal. This Philadelphia ghost tour was disappointing. It was more history oriented than scary. You would stop at certain sites and the guide would tell...More

We really enjoyed this experience as it was interesting, entertaining and fun to walk around to see and hear things you would not see or normally learn about in a normal visit to Philly.

Have you ever seen John Candy tell the bear story in the movie Great Outdoors? Our tour guide Ja'bar had the same story telling style and bravado as John Candy. We cover a lot of historic places and great ghost stories.

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
