I hate to write negative reviews but my wife and I heard this was a great tour. We had reservations, and 8 pm came and went. No tour guide, no email, no call cancelling, nothing. It would be different if the tour guide would simply send a text, email, SOMETHING to let people know she wouldn't make it. For people... More

Miss Katie does her research before she takes you on a walk around historic Southport riverfront. She spins takes of times past, and will tell you that the old locals that spend time in the swings on the riverfront can corroborate her information. The stories are poignant, funny, macabre and evil & leave you wanting to come back for more.... More

My teens loved this tour. There is a lot of walking but they enjoyed every minute. The hostess was kind and very informative. She knows her stuff. Thank you!

I wish I could be writing one of the reviews that talks about how great Katie's story-telling skills were or how much I learned about the rich history of Southport, however, mine is one of yet another "No Show". My family, along with four other groups, waited. Several adults called only to go to voice mail, but for some reason... More

Going on this ghost walk has become a tradition for me and my family. We go each year in the summer. The tour guide is very professional and informs you of the past of Southport, NC. I recommend any and everyone to go on this. She has showed pictures that guest have taken on the tour that they later found... More

I have been on the ghost tour several times. It's not scary, but mostly educational about historical Southport. I really enjoy it & highly recommend to anyone.

Walking ghost tour of Southport, just the right amount of history thrown in there to keep my 12 year old in rapt attention. Katie is a delightful character, she exudes southern hospitality.... as far as the no-show reviews, they must have shown up on a Monday~ Everyone I spoke to LOVED the Southport Ghost walk. Highly recommend for an informative... More

Although we did not encounter any obvious ghosts during our tour, it was very informative learning the history and sometimes unexplained stories that took place in Southport over a hundred years ago. Katie, a true historian, dressed in black as a Southern Belle is very charming and takes you to some places you not dare go to alone! I highly... More

I see from earlier reviews here and elsewhere that this has happened before. After speaking with the owner/tour guide on the phone in the morning, confirming that there would be a tour that evening and reserving four spots, we eagerly arrived at the appointed place 25 minutes before the 8 p.m. tour time. The weather was clear, and full of... More
