    Our tour guide was...
    Tiffany_M, Jul 2023
    Our tour guide was wonderful, the tour itself was just kind of boring. But it was a good way to see non-tourist parts of the city.
    Amazing experience I love...
    Stephanie_R, Oct 2022

    Super experience
    Cindy_D, Jun 2022
    We had a super great experience with Frankie! We booked a tour with my friend and eventually we were the only ones so we had a private tour. We are french and as my friend didn’t really understand English, I had the time to translate almost everything. Frankie was very patient. Thanks a lot!!

    Frankie had a blast with YOU as well! Thanks so much for joining us!
    Too Anecdotal, Not Enough History
    Ivan_B, Apr 2022
    This tour seemed a little too based on anecdotes rather than actual history. It wasn’t what I was expecting, but gave it a shot at least.
    Response from Host, Apr 2022
    Hi Ivan—thank you for your comments. Haunted Manhattan prides itself on providing just the right mix of history and spectral tales on our tours, so we're not sure we understand your feedback. You feel we have too many ghost stories...on our ghost tours? Thanks again.
    Great ghost stories

    Our tour guide Frankie was absolutely Phenomenal. The tour was filled with scary stories and some great historical facts. My daughter (14 yrs) and cousin (13 yrs old) really enjoyed the tour too. I definitely will recommend to my NYC friends ☺

    Thanks so much for joining Frankie on a tour—and for the kind words! We're glad you all had a great time. Hopefully we'll see you on our other tours soon, too!
    A lot of fun.

    Frankie, our guide, was a great story teller and a lot of fun. I recommend the experience to anyone.
    Response from Host, Jul 2021
    We agree: Frankie is awesome. Thanks for joining us, and hope you'll meet some of our other (also-awesome) guides soon!
    Such amazing history
    Samantha_H, Oct 2019
    Frankie was such a wonderful guide! So animated, funny, passionate about the subject matter and super friendly. The tour itself was a great experience for both the believer and the skeptic. The ghost stories were cool and the history of the area was great to hear. Perfect start to an NYC weekend and a perfect intro to the area.
    Response from Host, Oct 2019
