Have been on many ghost tours in many cities. It is nearly all about the guide and the storytelling to make the 'ghost' part fun. Places like Philly can withstand avg guides to a degree when only history is involved. To that end, I toured with the delightful and entertaining Caroline (also easy to hear from a distance, important). She knew her stuff, was outgoing and interactive, and struck just the right balance of spooky tales and associated history but without the overly serious nature I've experienced elsewhere. If you are after more creep factor, this may not be the one, but its a fun and educational 90 min and a picturesque walk through the old part of town on a nice evening.
