“Great Guide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

We had the most interesting guide who really entertained our group. He was quick to point out the history all around us (in addition to some questionable ghost stories) We had a young person in our group that he involved as a helper, which was a nice touch.

“Ghost Stories Galore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2011

Deb was a great tour guide and story teller. The stories were good and we were taken places that I would not have thought to visit on my own - wish we had more time in the city to go back and visit inside the places Deb told us about....like the library that has books covered in Human skin that you can actually hold! Be prepared with comfortable shoes to walk the hilly streets of Providence and a good time.

“Not as interesting as the other reviews led me to believe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2011

Tour was OK but not as interesting as I thought it would be based on the other reviews. Our guide, although pleasant enough, could have been more interactive with our large group and perhaps a little more creepy in his narratives. From my perspective, he did not ask anyone where they were from or interact much with the crowd and it seemed like a constant mad dash from site to site with a recitation of memorized narratives. I have been on many many tours (including other ghost tours) and an interactive guide makes for the most interesting and memorable experience. There were definitely some interesting stories...but they could have been delivered in a more interesting and theatrical way.

“Had a great time!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

We attended on July 9th. Our tour guide was amazing. Very interesting tour. Alot of information and really cool stories. It was about 2 hours long and there is a huge hill to walk up towards the end. Make sure you wear sneakers and bring a bottle of water with you. Really enjoyed it though!!!

“Great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

We went on the Providence Ghost Tour on Saturday and it was a lot of fun. Our guide Max was funny and very informative. It was a great tour of Providence and just a great trip. I must say I'm glad I wore sneakers as there are many hills during this tour, but it did not ruin everything. Book this as part of your trip!
