This isn't your typical ghost tour! It's really funny and you do get ghost stories but it's more of a comedy tour than a ghost tour. It's only $10 and worth it but just go in with a mindset to have fun and be entertained!...More

This tour was horrible. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The tour guide reeked of alcohol, he didn't give us any actual ghost stories OR history of the town. He just walked us around the town parading us through shops and restaurants making bad jokes...More
