Good info, boring presentation
Sandy_M, Apr 2024
Our guide knew history, but she didn't present it well. It's a ghost tour - it's supposed to be entertaining. We've been on other ghost tours in other cities, and this one just didn't match up. The guide walked us around, told us historical facts, but she relayed very few stories, and she had no enthusiasm.
Great ghost walking tour of Greenwich 😊

Cecelia was a great tour guide. Very informative, positive and enthusiastic! We loved walking through the streets of Greenwich and learning about the history .
Lovely haunted stroll through history

Cicelia, our guide, was great. Very engaging and full of fun tidbits and recommendations as we explored the local haunts. We had our daughter, 12, along and she found it more informative than "scary". We would do another tour with Cicelia.
Spooky and Historical

Jake was an incredible guide. We went by some iconic places, spooky places, and it mixed NYC history with ghost history. A well-written and performed tour!

My friends and I loved the tour, it was very interesting! I definitely have some new facts to share with my family :) The tour guide was amazing and was able to answer all of my dumb questions about the city!
So worth it!
Jennifer_J, Jan 2024
Like was wonderful! He knew his stuff and was so knowledgeable, funny, entertaining and kind. No ghosts seen but definitely got bad vibes at 2 places on the tour. Worth it even though we were freezing!
Amazing tour!

Rained out
Teresa_K, Dec 2023
Sadly, due to the pouring rain, we chose not to drive an hour into the city to be wet. I wish there was some option for a rain check…pun intended
Worth it! Definitely a GO!

I am sorry I forgot her name. Something with K but she was phenomenal. She could tell a story and love her sense of humor. Definitely recommend it!

Luke was a great tour guide! We had someone in my party that was a little slower than the rest of the group and he had no problem waiting a little extra time for us to catch up with him. His storytelling was engaging and interesting.
Fantastic guide made a good tour great!

Luke was a FANTASTIC tour guide. Even my friend that I was with enjoyed the tour and she doesn’t like ghosts. Honestly, Luke was the best tour guide I’ve ever had. The neighborhood was interesting and I got hear a bunch of history and see a lot of cool places.
