Massey was a most excellent guide! We enjoyed this tour. Definitely get the extended tour as that was the best part. Wonderful way to mix history with the ghost aspect. Not a gimmicky tour which we appreciated.

The tour didn’t give you very many ghost stories for the time you spent walking. We paid for the extra long tour and were the only ones, so we had a private tour by circumstances. The latter part of the tour was much better and had better stops and stories.
