WE had Ray as our guide and he was Great! He was very well informed and took plenty of time to answer any questions anyone in the tour had. Even after the tour was over he offered anyone who wanted to stick around and check out the last building a little longer they were welcome to with him. He had several takers. I went on a tusday night, highly reccomend.

Just not my thing. There are many other things to do in key west that are better worth your time and money. I tried to stay engaged by asking a question and the response was "I'm the tour guide, not you. I'll get to that part." Well geez we paid money to go on a tour, so as the tour guide the least you could do is be nice!

The tour guide was very engaging and the array of paranormal devices put the guest in active participation. As a skeptic, I was surprised, if not at least partially convinced of some of the phenomena discussed during the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Key West.

I was staying at the Old Town Manor and returned one night to find a bunch of ghost hunters in the courtyard. I was intrigued so I asked the next morning at breakfast how to go on the tour. The tour is $25 for about 90 minutes and starts at Kelly's at 8:00 rain or shine. They try to keep the groups small. Mine only had 3 other people. Our guide Ray was very informative and enthusiastic. Normally I am not one for history but I enjoyed hearing about the stories on the island. When he asked us at the Banyan Resort if we wanted to see if we could find a ghost, everyone replied YES! We were all armed with ghost hunting tools. Within a 2 block walk, there were about 10 or 12 haunted places. We even got to go inside the old Club Chameleon and Masonic Temple. It was so much fun to go in the dark buildings with a flash light and look for ghosts. Unfortunately it must've been a quiet night for ghosts. We didn't have much activity. It was way more fun to visit these places than to drive by them on a trolley. We even had to "de-ghost" ourselves when the tour was over. I would definitely go on this tour again.

I really enjoyed how this company focuses on the real stories and not being theatrically over the top or cheesy. You felt like the guide was really interested in the stories he was telling and not over exaggerating for entertainments sakes. It was also nice to hear some different stories for a change compared to the other companies in town who all have the exact same tour basically.
We really enjoyed having equipment to use too as it added another layer to the tour.
However, all that being said I felt that a lot more could have been done with the equipment. He had a raggedy ann doll with emf sensors in it- we thought that would be used to contact a child but instead one guest was asked to hold the doll and then we never saw it come out again. He also tried to contact people using white noise, but it was painfully obvious that he was grabbing at straws for what was supposed to be a ghost responding to him- I could have done without that bit. And finally, at the end of the tour our guide said, "And now my favourite part of the tour, the end"... Thought that was a very strange way to end a tour. Overall I like this company and their approach, our tour guide was very engaging but I just feel that some aspects of how they run it need adjusting...
