My husband and I took the historic one hour trolley tours in the morning.... and had no plans for the evening.... so we booked the Ghost Tour. We did not have high expectations at all.... it was just something to do. Jay was our guide......More

The guide was horrible. Probably some theater dropout. Constantly checking her watch. Total waste of money. Plus! There was a lady on my tour who would not shut her freaking annoying mouth. Helped to completely ruin what we thought would be a fun night out...More

We went on the shuttle bus ghost tour... it was interesting, fun and we would definitely do it again! We highly recommend it for something to do!

It was ok, but a little misleading. The tour of the 9000 sf Ryan mansion is only a small portion of the home.

The tour was narrated by a young lady who kept looking out the side door and didn't talk to us. She was hard to hear and didn't keep our attention. Real it was a waste of money.

Tour guide was very theatrical, scripted, and hard to understand at times. One of the weaker ghost tours we've experienced. Can't say that it's worth the price.

Pretty straight forward but lacked interesting stories, legends, mishaps, ghostly adventures. The bus was scariest with the extreme jostling...maybe need springs or shocks.

It was worth the money but only for the history of the city. I was disappointed in the " ghost" part of the tour. The guide was entertaining and kinda funny but he was a little over the top with the story telling.

Our tour guide was awesome, the stops were fun and we even had some ghostly activity 😉 It was definitely worth the trip and $. Loved hearing the stories and seeing the sights! It was actually our 2nd time, we went a few years ago...More

Shoot for 10 yes and up. They might get a little spooked by some of the stuff.

Sorry I don't remember the cost. If your children are not afraid of ghosts the tour would be okay. If they scare easily then no.
