What a waste of 10 dollar. The guides did not know how to follow thru their stories. They seem like they were not confident. They wanted to charge us for a 2 year old child who thank god wouldn't understand the mess these guys were...More

The tour given by 2 MV Gazette employees is informative and interesting but they need to tighten up their narrative as it's a bit too long and repetitive. It seems they're trying to convince their listeners to believe in ghosts rather than just telling their...More

Not well organized and the stories well not well delivered. Groups are composed of 50/50 kids and adults. Time needs to be given to develop well practiced stories and "urban legends" that can appeal to both. Even the most famous "daggett house child in fireplace...More
