Learn a bit about the history of the town while being entertained with spooky stories. There were 7 of us on our tour - ranging in ages from 12 - 70 and all of us enjoyed it and had a great time!

This is a great experience. You learn about all the spooky events in Greensboro as well as interesting historical facts. The eerie lantern guides you the whole way too and is carried by the most entertaining of guides! Don't forget to ask to see the statue of Thursday!!

This is a great way to learn about Greensboro's history, while not boring the kids. My husband and I took a tour with my brother. I expected it to be fun, but I was surprised how interesting it was. Our guide was very knowledgable about local history with a sense of humor. The whole tour takes place right downtown, so... More

My husband and I have gone on the Haunted History walking tour twice, once on Halloween. We totally loved it, there is so much to learn about downtown Greensboro's history. Our "ghost hosts" know their stuff and make the whole adventure very entertaining. Plus you get in some exercise as a bonus. Can't wait to go again and can't recommend... More

Last minute decision to do something a little different for the evening. Glad we did!, Great Night out with Jessie and Dan. They had really interesting and spooky stories, and the historical information was awesome. We'd highly recommend this for anyone with an interest in the paranormal, history or even an interesting night out on the town.
