I just wanted to share with you what a fabulous time we had on our private ghost tour with Tory. She was wonderful. So friendly, informative and willing to answer questions of all kinds. When asked what their favorite part of our Newport trip was, all three teenage boys answered “Tory and the ghost tour.” If you know teenagers, this... More

It was Halloween night and we were hoping for some type of ghostly encounter. Booked this tour to learn a little about Newport (which we did) and have a scary experience (which we didn't). Disappointed at the amount of time we spent on the tour standing around and looking at photos. Not really what we expected.

Took this tour on my birthday. Our guide was Tori. She was super nice and knowledgeable about Newport. The tour discussed some paranormal activity and covered some of Newport's history. The walk was easy; nothing strenuous for a person that may have difficulties with walking. It was a beautiful October night. My sister and I love Halloween and ghost stories... More

Because I visited Newport in October, I wanted to do something Halloween like and this was perfect. I find ghost tours to be a great mix of fun and history and a great way to see a city and some sights you normally wouldn't have. My tour guide was John Brennan, who wrote Ghosts of Newport, and he was excellent.... More

We took the Ghost tour. Our guide was excellent. His name was Brian. He really new his history. This is important in linking the ghosts to specific events. We took this tour the first night of our stay. This really helped in getting a feel for the area while having some fun too. We have taken ghost tours in other... More

If you're expecting something like Ghost Hunters on TV this isn't for you. Like most ghost tours, you're walking around public areas with a history of violence or chaos and the stories are the interesting part. You can however hope to have an entertaining, funny and passionate guide like John. We spent at least 2 hours on the tour and... More

Larry was my guide for a pleasant afternoon walk along Newport's famed and scenic Cliff Walk. Larry met me at the Newport dock where I landed from my cruise ship, and we used his car to drive to the beginning of the Cliff Walk. Larry is an expert local historian, and knows a tremendous amount about everything I saw, from... More

We really enjoyed this tour. We have two teens and our daughter thought this sounded interesting. Not only did we get the dark history and eerie stories of various ghosts, Pirates, etc, the guide was very informed about history of Newport and we learned so much. Highly recommend, but not with young children. Teens are fine!

It lacked much content. Not scary or theatrical in any way, which is what I've experienced in past ghost tours. I feel like the guide was wasting time, talking about what to do if we experience hecklers and passing around 4 ghost photos, which took up a good 15 minutes. Waste of time.

The guide knew history, but it was as "scary" as advertised. It is nice walk and they try to get you to take pictures of ghosts,
