A lovely guide, a well maintained trolley but a pretty tame ghost tour. So middle of the road in its tone that it might end up boring children as well as adults. It was a nice way to pass some time in a relatively quiet town and it is nice to support the local historical group. Purchase tickets in advance,... More

Nice 30 minute ghost tour, but felt like it was hurried. Appears to be enough stories to expand this tour and in doing so, allow for a less "rushed" tour. It was great, but has the potential to be much better.

I expected a lot more stories of ghosts. Seems we went down the same street 4 times. Overall it was a nice way to enjoy the scenery.

A really interesting tour of cape may. The host for the evening clearly admired a ghost hunter named 'Craig' The most interesting ghost on the tour was Mary who in the early 1900's was addicted to giving b*** jobs. It is said that who ever stays in her residence more often than no wakes up with a sore throat

We took the Ghost Tour for Christmas, and thought it was pretty good. It's nice seeing all the lights. The stories were decent, though doesn't add that much to the experience. I'm not sure what they do on the tour that does not have the ghost stories, but it could potentially be a better option.

I would recommend a trolley tour to anyone new to Cape May, just to get an overview of the high points in town and where they are all located. The Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Tour took us all around the main part of town - around the Emlyn Physick Estate, past the Southern Mansion, down Columbia Avenue, Ocean Street... More

Had a great guide, she was very knowledgeable and entertaining. For those who think it is boring, you need to use your imagination a little and get into it! We had visited a few of the spots on tour and had dinner at one our last night. Adds to the overall experience.

Absurd, boring, not even creepy. Total waste of money unless you just want a trolley ride around Cape May around dusk which would be a lot nicer if the tour guide would just leave you alone and allow you to enjoy the ambiance with all that nonsense droning in the background.

When we took this tour it wasn't quite dark so the atmosphere should have been ghostly! It was lovely in the trolley bus and great to ride around to see the houses but the ghosts stories linked to the houses were not very convincing. I felt the tour guide was a little tired of trotting out the same old spiel... More
