Guide Keith was great. He made it clear that he respects the entities there and made everyone else as well.
Had a great time. Tour guide was great! Heard lots of great stories. Now ready to do a ghost challenge. Then we spent Saturday and Sunday touring the reformatory. Learned a lot!
I really enjoyed the tours of the prison!! The guided night tour was awesome..Our guide was very good and very knowledgeable about the place. Thanks Sidney, we hope it as ever make it out there again you are still around ....
Tour guide had great knowledge of the history of the building and did a great job presenting the facts versus the myths.
The tour guide was very informative and we all had an experience in the prison. It was a different take on the prison seeing it at night instead of during a day tour. We got some awesome pictures and even caught a baseball player in 1 of them from the showers. Solitary confinement was the worst. We got to sit for 7 minutes in a cell alone and we all had experiences. Our bed moved and there was a shadow figure that walked by the door the whole time we sat in the cell. They took the group to different parts of the prison that you don't get to see on the regular tour. This was super neat and worth the money. We are even thinking about doing the next step up in ghost hunting because we had such a wonderful experience.
The tour was excellent and the guide was very informative. She knew so much about the history and had excellent stories to share. I only wish that the group had been smaller. The guide tried to keep everyone moving and quiet, but despite her efforts we spent a lot of time waiting for stragglers and had several that were loud which did minimize the experience for me. I would absolutely do it again and would just hope for different group members.
Well organized and never boring. Great time. Thx OSR
Our Guide Keith was so knowledgeable, and so willing to share information, that there was no way that anyone in our group could have said that they were not Very Satisfied. Many thanks, we enjoyed our time tremendously.
Had such a great time. Keith was an awesome tour guide! I am already trying to pool people together to do a private tour/night. The only thing I would have wanted more of on the tour is a few minutes to explore each spot we visited. Great overall :)
Very helpful with the schedules. It was a good tour
We had one of the best guides so far. Thank you Keith!!! Informative and so many great personal experiences. Will be back for even more tours!
Amazing building, really cool stories. I loved being able to see many of the key areas used in one of my favorite movies. Overall it was a really great experience, but if I could change one thing it would be to mark where you need to register a little better. We pulled around the side of the building and were sitting at a picnic table for a long time not realizing we needed to come around to the front of the building to check in.
My 14 year old son and I went to this Ghost Walk as one of the items on his summer wish list items. He and I are both able to feel spirits and he is even able to communicate with them at times. We both had a great time. The guide was very knowledgeable and obviously was very passionate about his work. We don't often tell people about our gifts so it was awesome to be able to freely share with like minded people. We have now decided that we will come back for the overnight ghost hunt for my son's 18th birthday. Can't wait.
We had so much fun. Seeing the prison and learning about the history was so cool. Our guide was great. You can tell he loves what he does.
We drove up from Cincinnati. We were not dissapointed at all. The tour guide was extremely informative and also relaxed. There are men making sure you don't get lost if you stray from the group to explore a bit. Wonderful tour. Great experiences.
Guide was very informative. I enjoyed hearing the history of the reformatory. It was a great experience I would definitely return.
Great tour - makes you think about your personal freedoms and how precious they are.
I bought the tickets for my moms birthday. We both had an amazing time and will be going back for everything else OSR has to offer !
Sydney was very nice answered our questions
The guide was amazing however there was more talking than I thought there would be. But over all it was an amazing experience.
We had a great time on our tour! Our guide was great and very informative!
The guide was superb!
It was a great experience. We had a group of eight people and everyone wants to come back!
The location is fascinating. Architecture, history and the opportunity to see and explore old buildings is something we love to do.
The tour was EXTREMELY informative and entertaining. Our guides were really great and friendly. We WILL be recommending this to our friends and will mire than likely do this again...especially the Halloween activities.
Had a great time and the stories were awesome
Nice for ghost lovers! Would have liked to see more of the jail.
The tour was awesome. Our guide, Keith, was very informative. He gave a perfect mix of history and his own experiences. Will definitely be coming back!!!
Keith did a great job telling Stories about each area. It was very interesting to hear the stories and have put on experiences during the walk. I thought Keith did a great job connecting us with the experience.
Our guide, Keith, was so knowledgeable and had us interacting within the tour. He talked like the spirits he had talked to were his friends. He was very real and didn't try to be dramatic like is seen on tv. It kept the experience real, and that was what made it awesome. We had such a good time, we didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back!!!
Our tour guide was excellent and gave us many personal ghost stories of his own! He also included a lot of history into the tour which was also very interesting! Will definitely be coming back!
Great time! Fantastic way to see a piece on Ohio history. There will for sure be a return visit in my future.
I chose somewhat satisfied, even though I really was VERY satisfied. I wanted to be able to let you know what I thought. whether it helps, not sure. Checking in, was very casual. no head count, no tickets, no wrist bands. people could easily have more people join them without anyone asking. just saying. maybe you have a secret way of knowing. if so, ignore this. other than that. you need a kiosk selling water or lemonade. you could make a lot of additional funds this way. the vending machine was sold out. but it was so hot, I would have paid even 3.00 for a bottled water! the woman guide we had was wonderful. the building, fascinatingly creepy, the stories of the history along with the spirits were educational and entertaining. the building is so very beautiful. thank you for preserving it. ok, I was very satisfied. thanks for a wonderful evening!!
the only negative thing I have to say is that don't put the online tv shows down - they probably are getting their info from interviews with their hosts before they do their shows, so if they get something wrong, maybe not their fault. Also, they may be one reason why people will come to see the prison. Also, maybe the guides could say more about the movies made there - which ones and what part of the prison was used. I did really enjoy the tour - Keith was great. I would come back again.
I thought the tour was very good, and I really enjoyed it. The guides were excellent, and I loved hearing about the history of it. "Shawshank Redemption" is one of my favorite movies, and it was so cool to see where the movie took place. I thoroughly enjoyed this ghost walk and would recommend it to anyone.
