This is a great way to learn about Greensboro's history, while not boring the kids. My husband and I took a tour with my brother. I expected it to be fun, but I was surprised how interesting it was. Our guide was very knowledgable about local history with a sense of humor. The whole tour takes place right downtown, so... More

My husband and I have gone on the Haunted History walking tour twice, once on Halloween. We totally loved it, there is so much to learn about downtown Greensboro's history. Our "ghost hosts" know their stuff and make the whole adventure very entertaining. Plus you get in some exercise as a bonus. Can't wait to go again and can't recommend... More

Last minute decision to do something a little different for the evening. Glad we did!, Great Night out with Jessie and Dan. They had really interesting and spooky stories, and the historical information was awesome. We'd highly recommend this for anyone with an interest in the paranormal, history or even an interesting night out on the town.

Standing on the lawn at Blandwood Mansion, listening to our tour guide Dan describe the Civil War events that took place on the property, the sounds of modern-day Greensboro faded away and we were transported back in time. It became easy to think that we might glimpse a ghostly face in the window far above us, anchored by longing to... More

I've been on quite a few tours to include the Winchester House, Charleston, Alcatraz, and others. Dan gives, by far, the most fascinating tours I've ever been on. The tours are as much a history lesson of the area as they are haunting stories. He does such a fantastic job of painting a visual picture of what the city was... More

Love these guys. I've been on this tour several times and I really think it's a fun time. Getting out and walking around the area and learning about the spooky history of places that you pass every single day. The guides are funny, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in the topics they are discussing. This was the third time we have... More

As a long-time Greensboro resident, this was something fun and different to do. I learned a lot about the city's history and Dan and Jessi were very entertaining and great storytellers.

Great tour that went over the history about reported haunting. Learned a lot about the city. Would be awesome for people who are new to the city or people who've lived there for years.
