5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

The Ghost tour was a really great experience! There was a really big crowd, but everything was really organized and the people in Mrs.K's were really nice and accomodating with the restrooms. My daughter and her roommate really enjoyed it as well. Our tour guide Jennifer was awesome! I would definitely take the tour again, you cant beat the price as well!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

Not scary. She had some history to go with old stories of each site. It lasted 2 hours and was a good tour, but not a scary ghost tour.

4 star rating: Recommended February 2010

A very enthusiastic tour guide gave us plently of drama! I loved the folk story he told us with his booming and youthful voice. I really appreciate young people after I took this tour, in general. He really knew his stuff and made everybody happy and entertained. I like that it was offered at night in the dark because it made me remember playing outside in the dark when I was a youth with all the walking we did. The tour guide was a very excellent storyteller! I am pleased we talked by and the tour guide gave narration that many of the building were empty but had caretakers.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2008

Had our own personal tour guide as just 2 of us signed up, great! Very educational and interesting.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2013

Information/Stories were wonderful. The guide was very interested in hurrying along (a late start to wait for someone to get a drink) to keep to his schedule. He was constantly rushing us along and not caring for our walking comfort.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2008

A routine night tour. No emotions at all. Our guide was poor but enthusiastic. It would be better if ghosts and monsters appeared.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2008

It was a nice tour and my first ghost tour. I believe I would have enjoyed more of a history walking tour than to hear about all the deaths and ghosts. We did have a nice tour guide who was knowledgeable and friendly.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2008

On the website it says we will see 'Haunted Movie Sets - See famous film locations from big screen thrillers such as The Sixth Sense, Shooter, National Treasure and more!' which we were never shown. I was pretty excited about that and it never happened.
