Oct. 2021 • Couples
To many ppl on the tour. Groups need to be smaller and the talking amongst the crowd ruins the experience. The tour guide , the shorter lady with the shirt curly hair was not so friendly! Would have liked a more “paranormal type tour” spooky and EVP sessions.

Amazing Tour

This was a great tour to take if you’re interested in the history or the castle and also interested in the paranormal. Our tour guides Todd and Mary Beth were awesome and full of stories which were very cool to hear!

Fun-filled Evening
Jun. 2020
We signed up the mystery murder dinner and ghost tour at the castle. Both were enjoyable and fun. My family are skeptics of ghosts and there were moments that one of us chuckled. However, even if you don't believe in the paranormal, it is worth the night-time tour that combines some of the cast;e's history with strange stories.
As for the dinner, good food and an entertaining two-person routine, with audience participation (if so desired). With the exception of a couple of lines (from audience members), the entire performance is family friendly.

This was great. We were there on Halloween night. A guy took a photo and caught a shadow figure! I was able to catch an orb and some white mist or a possible orb moving. The tour was fun and the lady leading was informative and new the history of the castle really well. Would definitely go back and go through again.

Ghost Tour: not safe during COVID
I signed up for this ghost tour after my positive experience on the History Museum ghost tour. The Pythian Castle ghost tour failed miserably to accommodate COVID safety precautions and I would not recommend it during this time. It is the law here to wear masks and for a paid tour I expect for the tour operator to ensure the safety of all those attending regardless of the personal beliefs on masking.

Upon arrival no one was enforcing the masking order in place by our local government. We checked in at the driveway which would seem like a great place to ensure everyone was aware of the masking requirement but people waited inside the building mingling around without masks. A second opportunity to remind visitors about the requirement to wear masks was available at the introduction. The tour guide failed to do so and escorted us into another room. There were approximately 40 people gathered in this small room without adequate spacing of the chairs. At this point the guide asked if those people who were not masked had masks. Instead of making them leave he radioed for masks to be delivered and we sat there in a close environment with unmasked individuals. They were provided masks about 20 minutes into this part of the tour.

We were split up into two large groups of 20 people. This is too large for this time and was too many people for the guide to manage. The guides failed to regulate the continued wearing of the masks including the proper coverage of both the nose and the mouth. We waited to the back to try to space out and when we finally were able to enter some of the smaller rooms to look around another guide would turn out the lights and tell us it was closed. This is not very accommodating of people who are scared of Covid and trying to just wait their turn.

The tour itself was just okay. I hope that the tour is modified to include less people per tour. They could use smaller groups and shorten it to 1 hour. The tour does not need to be 2 hours. The content was far less than the History Museum and double the time. Enforce the masking order at the beginning and throughout. Make it a safe environment for all those attending.

Decent Historical Tour.
Sep. 2020 • Couples
Very interesting history and tour. Tour guide was knowledgeable and very informative
If you are expecting to see anything paranormal that probably will not happen. Group was too large and noisy with sound contamination for anything too subtle to be noticed. Main thing was taking pictures of different hotspots and see what shows up on the camera. I knew it wasn’t a genuine ghost hunt so I was satisfied with the tour. Real cool place.

Good guide
Oct. 2020 • Friends
Our guide was very knowledgeable and seemed passionate about the history of the castle. The only downside was the Halloween decorations that gave a goofy feel to what was otherwise a good experience.
