Though our tour is certainly frightening, it isn’t necessarily inappropriate for children. We have carefully designed our tour to be scary enough to interest the grown-ups, but not so scary that children will have nightmares for months.

Yes, but in some locations you’ll be crossing busy streets and it can be a little noisy for some dogs not used to urban city life.

Our tour is a walking tour. We do walk the entire distances listed, but for tour guests with concerns about mobility or similar health concerns, we do make stops at each location. We’re a walking tour, not a race!

Photos are welcomed! If you see any unusual presences, you’re encouraged to take photos and share them with us on our social media. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.

Due to the already lengthy duration of our tours, private ownership of our tour sites, and varying policies on bringing groups of guests inside, no, we don’t go inside the buildings.
Depending on the building, you are welcome to visit on your own following our tour. But be advised: the ghosts may be just as interested in you as you are with them.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

We do not grant refunds, but we reserve the right to let customers reschedule their tours for better weather or to attend a tour on the next day if they are late, but this is not guaranteed. It is important that each group arrive to the start location on time. Because ghost tours commonly get sold out and since seating is limited, it is important for each person to arrive at the date and time they select, so that their reservation does not prevent others from ordering.In the event of inclement weather, we advise guests to plan ahead and bring an umbrella or poncho. However, in the event that we cancel a tour for whatever reason, we will grant a 100% discount.Please note that it is customer’s responsibility to arrive to the correct tour location on time. Refunds will not be given for those that arrive late or cannot find the meeting location. We occasionally reschedule customers on a case by case basis for a 10 percent rebooking fee.
