Perfect family fun - We enjoyed it. The voice and sound effects were great. My son is 15 and he was actually on edge from the way the storytelling was portrayed. We were even entertained between spots because of the sound effects and some extra historical facts. We did not take photos because it was night time and it was really busy so there were lots of groups around.

Great Option for Timing Flexibility - We selected this tour for flexibility since we were driving through town for one night without a firm ETA. It definitely met our needs. It was fun to enjoy a nice dinner out and then go late to add to the haunted ambiance. The sound quality was excellent and the GPS tracker highly accurate. We plan to seek out similar tours in other cities -- great value.

Phone guided ghost tour - My wife and 3 kids (ages 9,13,15) really enjoyed the phone guided tour. It was simple to set up and fun to listen to the spooky stories. A big plus for us was it's flexibility. I would probably do a personal guided tour the next time. Still..would recommend

Make sure you drop a pin at you car - I would give this a 5 star review but there is not real directions for getting back and you are left in a not so great part of the city at the end of the tour. But great narration and super concept
