I don't like anything too scary, and I survived this tour. It had more of a historical/informative tone to it and our guide provided good suggestions for other activities in the area. Nice family activity, though older kids may think it's silly. Although it's a...More

We really enjoyed our tour! Our guide provided us with great info on the area, interesting historical facts, and a few ghostly tales. And I’m pretty sure I caught a ghostly image in a window during the tour! I expected more scary tales, but we...More

Emily was a great guide and storyteller! We had a great time learning about the Lost Colony, why it was lost - and what souls still wander the island and the Outer Banks! Thanks Emily!

This is a great walking tour of downtown Manteo. The stories are told with humor and flare. Hopefully you will enjoy stories of The Lost Colony, Blackbeard, Theodosia Burr and many more. The locals and a couple people that were docked there interacted with us...More

Julia was our tour guide for our night. She was very knowledgeable and shared very interesting stories. If you're interested in using ghost hunting equipment, there was an EMF detector that was passed around through the night. The tour lasted for about two hours.

Manteo is a charming little hamlet with a New Orleans feel to it. Lots of small mom and pop stores and eateries, lots of history (including the famed Roanoke Island), but very few haunted spots or ghosts on record. Wait...this is supposed to be a...More
