This was the first time anyone in our group had done a walking ghost tour, so we were not sure what to expect. The guide was very friendly; however, he was far too soft spoken and we had trouble hearing him above the noisy traffic....More

We "stumbled" upon this great tour two summers ago and have brought guests back with us! Ditto all the glowing remarks about the Lincoln Ghost Walk: so interesting, informative, well done!

Where do I start? We hired Garrett for the daytime walk and had the best time ever. We learned so much more than we would have doing the sights on our own. Garrett was so informative with great stories, facts and information that you'd only...More

We had a blast doing the Ghost Walk tour in Springfield. Our tour guide, Garrett, was terrific and we highly recommend him! He takes his role very seriously in imparting his knowledge of all things Lincoln!

We had a warm evening for the walking tour. Our guide Molly was personable, organized & gave a good tour. My almost 13 year old was not very interested but I found it interesting. The town is flat so walking is easy.
