Went on the night ghost tour with Emma. Very nice to interact with during the unscripted times. On the bus, she talked extremely fast to shove in the full script. Higher pitched voice and pace of script made capturing all the cool info very difficult....More

A little silly and not worth $30. $10, maybe? I would try the walking tour. This one:.. you can not see anything their talking about from the bus. And not enough history given ghost hunting was odd.

It was both entertaining and informative. Emma (our tour guide) was the best, and her passion showed in every word she spoke.

I would not spend money on this. First of all, distracting, interrupting, young children on the tour and too many stories of ghosts the guide has heard over the years. Pretty hokey!

Shoot for 10 yes and up. They might get a little spooked by some of the stuff.

Sorry I don't remember the cost. If your children are not afraid of ghosts the tour would be okay. If they scare easily then no.
