I signed up to go with friends and had no idea what we were in for, I had kind of assumed that it would be a standard ghost tour, going from spot to spot to hear creepy stories. There are elements of that but also some pretty entertaining performance elements that I hadn't anticipated. Overall it was a great time if you're in to spooky stuff.

This was a must do tour! We had a great time! Our guide Frankie was the best! He was organized, personable, and so informative!

Fun experience, and the guides really get into character and have a laugh with it. Great tour and great value for money!
