I've done ghost tours in London and Fort Collins Colorado....both we had access inside buildings and basements. It wasn't just scare tactics, with fake people, just more engaging stories. We felt more involved. this tour stopped random places and "pointed down the street and behind that building..." the stories were engaging enough, but I would still give it a 4... More

Took my boyfriend on this tour for his birthday. We love walking the city, and hearing historical facts. Not sure what our tour guide's name was, but he was definitely into it. super over the top, with gestures and such. Just tell the stories dude.. After An hour in, I was tired of walking, had to pee, and honestly couldn't... More

While some of the stories were entertaining and historical, many others were just based off of one person's anecdotal story of "feeling a chill" or "seeing a shadow" in a building. After a while, it seemed like many of the buildings had the same story to go with them. It was also hard to hear many of the stories because... More

This ghost tour was pretty boring. If you are from Pittsburgh, you already know most of what you'll hear. Many of the stories didn't even take place in the city. Our guide was trying to be dramatic, but then seemed to forget what he was supposed to say next. Very disappointing and a waste of money and time.

The assertion that “[m]any of the stories didn't even take place in the city” is not accurate. We tell a dozen or more stories concerning sites we’re looking at—we suspect that few, if any, walking ghost tours in the United States can match that. If our tour has a flaw, it’s the opposite of the one you’ve posited: it’s a... More

A great walking tour of downtown Pittsburgh featuring tales of ghosts and apparitions intertwined with historic facts about this great city. Factual and entertaining, it is the best ghost tour I've ever been on.

This tour is misleading from the moment you visit their webpage to sign up. The walking tour was kind of a joke as they walk you to random parts of Pittsburgh to tell you a "ghost story" about a place far away. Such as, the Johnstown flood. That story was told near Market Square. Or, the story about a haunted... More

Respectfully, your assertion that we have “not delivered” the product we advertise is wholly inappropriate and requires correction. To say that we walk our guests "to random parts of Pittsburgh to tell you a ‘ghost story’ about a place far away” paints an inaccurate picture because of what you fail to say. Off the top of my head, I can... More

It is a wonderful tour, and a grand way to learn of the dark stories of such a famous city. Our tour guide, Haydn, didn't just tell stories, he got into character with accents and movements. The people of Pittsburgh sometimes even help with the tour by spooking you as they walk by. If you have any interest in the... More

Thank you, Rebecca. That's a brilliant way of putting it-- "the darker side of history that is usually hidden." We've worked very hard, for many years, at bringing a quality walking ghost tour downtown. We had to invent it from whole cloth--there was no precedent. We were driven by our love of the city's history. It is comments such as... More

This walking tour was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. Our tour guide Haydn was amazing and had very entertaining delivery - part dramatic radio play, part Rod Serling narrating the Twilight Zone, and a bit of old-fashioned vaudeville MC. He was also friendly, professional, and made sure our (somewhat merry/tipsy) group walked across intersections safely. The stories... More

GREAT EXPERIENCE! Went there after hearing about the tours on the radio. Our tour guide was energetic and very knowledgeable about the city and its past. Great unique views of the city and stories. You will walk quite a bit, but it was certainly worth it. Thanks for the great time for my wife and I.
