“Funny, light hearted and lots of silly jokes”

Elaine's Walking Ghost Tour
Ranked #16 of 28 Tours in Cape May
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This is not a SCARY ghost tour. Its really a nice walk around a small section of the Victorian themed town. The tour guides tell jokes while pointing out the haunted stories around town and the history of the town. Its a great time, but not a serious ghost hunting hour. The tour guides are great though. They really talk to each person in the group, provide interesting stories and make it a fun walk. I would tell anyone to do it.

We enjoyed the walk around the town and our guide was pleasant. The stories and history was incomplete and not fully formed. This tour would be a 5 if the information was better developed. It’s still a fun thing to do but don't expect too much.

Poor!
The guide Kristen was BAD! She was not properly dressed--short and flip flops at 11:00 PM--was over tied and hyped up! The Ghost tour was more of a sightseeing tour which is NOT what I paid for!

We had a very disappointing experience on this walking tour. We went on the 10:00PM tour following the dinner theater (which was a lot of fun!). We were having such a good time that we didn't want the night to end and as a result signed up for the ghost tour. Unfortunately, we were disappointed.

The tour guide, Kaitlyn, was in a rush throughout the whole tour. She walked speed-walked backwards, talked a mile a minute, and did not stop for more than 10 seconds for her guests to take in the stories or the buildings she was referring to.

We had an expectant mother on the tour in addition to two individuals with various knee and hip injuries. When these guests expressed that the tour was going too fast, the tour guide basically ignored them and continued.

The sidewalks of Cape May can be uneven, narrow and crowded (even later at night). Moving so quickly through the tour was a hazard, left us with little to be remembered, and as a result made it utterly unenjoyable.

When we returned to Elaine's, Kaitlyn explained that she would wait "awkwardly for two minutes" for tips before running to catch her bus. I guess that's why we all had to run around like crazy people in the middle of the night in Cape May. So she could catch her bus.

If you are interested in this tour, perhaps look at an earlier time. Or try to get the other tour guide.

Our family--ages 62 to 6--loved this tour of some of the 'haunts' of Cape May. As many other reviewers have mentioned, our tour guide "Joe" made it very entertaining, including even the youngest in his presentation. He kept us laughing and informed for an hour that passed much too quickly. Spent some time before the tour at Elaine's. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Tour began on time and moved quickly. I would recommend this tour to fans of Cape May history and anyone else who enjoys a good time. Two thumbs enthusiastically up!
