What You Can Expect

Philadelphia Ghost and Vampire Tour

Ghost and Vampire Tour

Philadelphia is one of the most haunted cities in the country. After all, there are literally hundreds of cemeteries buried beneath it, like in Congo Square, where thousands of bodies lie in unmarked graves.

Listen closely as a university professor leads the way on this terrifying twilight tour.Beginning with a slew of traditional stories from the nation’s Founding Fathers at Independence Hall, the Library of Congress and two dozen other historical sights, this adults-only voyage dares to wander where others won’t — into the darkest parts of the city. Visit whipping posts, gallows and the red light district, with tales of mass burials, executions and public slave auctions. It’s not for the faint of heart.

The stories seemingly never end. Pirate ghost ships on the Delaware River. The haunting of the City Tavern. The 19th century riots. Edgar Allen Poe. Learn about the people, the places and all the dark corners of the city’s hidden past on this unforgettable Philadelphia ghost tour.

Loved loved this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable! Pretty spooky, and I have to admit gave me chill bumps a couple of times. I'm still trying to figure out how Dustin can walk backwards, point out buildings, and tell stories all while not tripping or running into things.....very impressive. He was awesome and I would recommend this tour highly.

Fun tour! Our guide, Brittany, was entertaining and informative. We got to see some cool sights and hear some of the other side of both Philly and US history. It was definitely a different spin on a typical walking tour, but I'd probably change the title--there wasn't much going on in the ghost and vampire area, but a good time nonetheless.
