What to expect on our tours.
First time on a ghost tour? No worries. Bring your bravado, be ready to be scared but be skeptical too but, most importantly, bring a sense of open-mindedness and get ready to have a good time. Our tours are full of lots of historical information, so even die-hard skeptics are guaranteed to enjoy our walks!
What should I bring?
Bring your flashlight and camera or smart phone. Many of our guests bring their cameras -- digital cameras tend to get the best results and are easiest to examine during and after a stop. Phone cameras often get results too but are less reliable and sometimes do not have the quality level to get good photos. Photos of old buildings and paranormal phenomena captured enhance your tour.
Oh, and don't forget to check-in on Facebook!
How should I dress?
Dress for your individual comfort. However this is, at most, a 1.5 mile walk over a hour and a half to two hours, (possibly longer if you are doing one of our special events).
Definitely bring a good pair of walking shoes or sneakers, and a raincoat, umbrella, or poncho if it is raining.
When should I get there?
We are available, on site, about two hours before the tours start, but you are welcome to come early and enjoy the view from the porch -- a great spot for people watching.
If you have paid in advance, no need to get to our location until 10 or 15 minutes before the tour
If you are purchasing tickets, please arrive at least 20 to 30 minutes before the tour
Pub crawls and wine tours take a little longer to check in as we have to check your ID before we start out.
Should I make reservations?
Yes, yes, YES. We highly suggest you make a reservation. You can reserve by phone or if you want to be assured of a spot on our tours book online. Tours fill up particularly quickly in September and October (especially around Halloween), as well as certain weekends throughout the year.
Go to our TICKETS page for pricing, instructions, and recommendations.
What about inclement weather?
We conduct our tours in all weathers, except for dangerous or risky conditions like thunder and lightning.
If you think the weather conditions are going to be severe, please call, text or email us to confirm that we are going to have a tour
If we decide that conditions are too bad for a tour, and you either made a reservation and have your information, or have booked online, we will reach out to you.
We also post any cancellations on Facebook, and cancellation notices are also posted at the entrance to the building.
