This was a spur of the moment evening and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We met at Prospect Park with about 30 other "souls" and were led by Stephanie through the streets of Providence's historic east side. We heard stories about people who had lived in some of the houses (including H.P. Lovecraft, Sarah Helen Whitman & Edgar Allan Poe) and... More

As a Rhode Island native was a great source of history with a little spook factor. Courtney was a fun,witty and a fund of knowledge. Great for locals and visitors

The host was very nice and extremely informative. He knew a ton about local history. The walk was nice and pretty easy some reviews said there were hills but he said they revised their tour now almost no uphills. If you book online you save $2 per person. I would have done it again if asked.

We have done several of these through the US and this one didn't disappoint. We throughly enjoyed the locations the historical background, the legends and mysterious happenings. The start of your tour is located in prospect park overlooking the city. Your guide is dressed is period garb and leads you through the streets of Providence sharing stories in a very... More

I've been working at Brown for 2.5 years (living in PVD for 3) and I didn't know ANY of the information I learned on the tour. I found it totally fascinating, a little eerie (the appropriate amount), and I would definitely recommend it for visitors and locals alike. We went on a drizzly night, which really leant itself to the... More

Good tour, but, more historical and sight seeing in nature; not scary. Be prepared to walk. The tour guides are well prepared and entertaining.

We love to go on ghost tours when available in whatever city we visit. I was excited about this one because it said it was one of the top ten in the country. It was entertaining but we have been in 6 other tours and they were all better. There were not enough scary stories. It was ok, just not... More

We highly recommend this tour. Aurora was great to listen to and kept everyone engaged throughout. It was also great to hear about the history linked to the city!

This was a really interesting tour. I wish I had went on the tour my first night so that the next day I could go back and visit the haunted places that were mentioned when the buildings were open. The only reason why I didn't give this tour 5 stars is because unlike some tours, the entire tour is on... More

Stephanie was the best guide - she had a fun personality and kept everyone engaged while she was telling the stories. Whether you believe in ghosts or not (we don't), you hear a lot about the history of Providence and get to see really cool things. I loved being on the Brown quad at night. Great tour!
