This was fun ghost tour and a great way to see some of Wilmington. The stories were interesting. I am glad we booked this and definitely think it was worth the money. We do ghost tours most places we visit and my favorite part is learning about the city and this one does not disappoint.

Very knowledgeable tour guide! I loved the walk and was very good historical data on the city! Read the book prior to the tour.

First off, our guide Kitty is a master storyteller! She was able to find the balance between spooky and fun. There was also a good dose of history of Wilmington. We were on an early tour, and as we had an 8 year old in our group, she handled it beautifully. There was plenty of detail, without being offensive. And he remembered all the stories and the houses and wants to hit the cemetery next trip to check out Boss' grave. Super cool evening! It was my second tour in Wilmington and will probably do it again in the future. An off beat way to see this gorgeous old time up close.

This is great for adults and kids. Learn some of the incredible history of this beautiful city in a fun manner. There is talk of murder and death but done in such a manner that makes it kid friendly depending on your child. Mine are in high school but the tour we were on had several kids as young as 7 and they were fine.

The tour guides are entertaining and dramatic but don't over do it. The walk is easy some hills a few blocks with plenty of time to rest as the guides stop and tell their stories.

Bring your camera and take plenty of photos to look at later.

The tour ends right down the street from Kilwins Ice Cream for some of the best ice cream you can find. But that is for another review

Our guide was a lot of fun, has done a good deal of research, and has had some personal experiences he shared with our group. Is a great combo of history and haunts. We checked out the store at the end of the tour and bought a few books. A great tour to do while in Wilmington.
