Best Ghost Tour of NYC- Gaby is Awesome - We had the best tour guide! Gaby was a lot of fun and had great stories to share. She was prepared with photos of almost every person she mentioned and even had a video from a previous patron that showed a ghost! Spooky! I loved how well she knew the history and she definitely deserves a raise! She had a great personality and provided a wonderful experience that I will definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a ghost tour of NYC! Also I loved that the tour had a ton of stops and was a 2 hour tour!

Experience Greenwich in a whole new way! - Very spooky part of NY. Also very historic. Loved learning about the area as well as the events that may have caused some ghostly activity. Very much enjoyed Luke’s delivery and anecdotes. He is also a wealth of information about the area including great but well priced restaurants. Would highly recommend!

All around excellent themed tour - We got to see some hidden parts of NY that are off the main roads. Was really cold to experience a place or street I normally wouldn’t have stumbled upon. Lucas was also very personable and knew a lot about many areas in NY. But easily the best ghost tour I’ve taken in the city so far.

Okay - The tour was okay. More educational than gripping in terms of ghost stories. I think the description was a bit misleading

Good info, boring presentation - Our guide knew history, but she didn't present it well. It's a ghost tour - it's supposed to be entertaining. We've been on other ghost tours in other cities, and this one just didn't match up. The guide walked us around, told us historical facts, but she relayed very few stories, and she had no enthusiasm.
