My boyfriend and I had a groupon for the ghost tour but it wasn't with the Cheesecake Factory. We met up at the Briny Irish Pub by Riverwalk in Fort Lauderdale. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, walked through some homes that were haunted (supposedly), and the people who have died on the train tracks. It was 1 1/2 tour.

Been to ghost tours in other cities, saw this one & had to go. As with most it was chalked with area history. I love that kind of stuff. History with a twist, a walk and a short boat ride! John was accommodating & personable. Worth doing if you are looking for an interesting night out or are in town.

This was a Great tour! Our Guide could not have been better - it was fun, informative and really interesting to learn some history of Ft Lauderdale! The weather was great, the boat ride fun and the other guests made the event even more interesting! Don't forget to ask/order the book written by the guide!

Never been on a walking tour. John keeps you informed about the history of the area as well as the ghosts that still haunt the locations. Informative from a paranormal stance...a mix of history and spirits or energies still inhabiting the homes.

This is a walking history tour of Ft. Lauderdale. This is not an official tour affiliated with any historical society. I think he does this at night and so late because all these buildings are closed and no official person is there to object. He has lots of videos of ghosts on his ipad. By the way, the water taxi...

I'm sorry to hear about your displeasure of me not having to pay for your trip from point A to point B. Trust me, the people who run the water trolley were tipped handsomely. In fact, I don't remember you at all on my tour. Especially when I meet an Auzzie I would remember that. It does concern me that... More

This is our second tour with Mr. Carr. He is an excellent tour guide with great knowledge and first hand experience with ghosts in the area. He has audio and visual proof of the ghosts that supplement the tour through old Fort Lauderdale. The area is creepy and desolate which adds to the scary feel of the walk. At one... More

This walking tour lasts almost 2-1/2 hours so it is best to go on a nice night. John, our guide, was extremely informative and truly believed what he was saying. We went to several haunted houses. At one, curtains were moving but not sure it that was a hoax. At another, a fan moved. I took photos and later looking... More

This is a walking tour in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and it proved you don't have to go into the building to experience weird stuff. I was doing it just for the fun of a ghost walk, and my sister and nieces and a friend also went. The five of us enjoyed this tour. What made it more fun for me... More

Tour was fun and creepy. Tour guide Mr. Carr was very nice!! We did initially think the tour was mostly spent on a boat but then found that you only take the water taxi to get across the water. Be prepared to walk in the heat!
