I made a last minute decision to go on this tour and had a great time! Learning the history of the paranormal hotspots in Charlottesville was a treat.


Tour never happened. Organiser was a no show, this is probably a scam. If not whomever is running this business needs to pull their finger out and get their crap together! If they cannot deliver then taking unsuspecting people money is fraudulent! If we don’t get a refund we will contact the police!


Very disappointed, we waited for the Ghost Walk guide at the correct place 15mins before time (18:00 hrs) and a further 5mins after meet up time but no Ghost Walk guide showed. Is this a scam? Checked for messages from the Tour company but didn’t receive any information cancelling our tour. What happened? Is this a regular occurrence where customers are sold tours that will never happen. I certainly don’t recommend this non existent tour.

Hannah - our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. She made the tour interesting covering the standard information as well as sharing some of her personal experiences. One item that was surprising was that the regular tour ended several blocks away from the starting point, however for a few dollars per person you could continue on the extended tour. For several reasons we chose not to continue on the extended tour, so we were left to find our own way back.


Me and a bunch of my friends went on this tour to celebrate the spooky season and we were not let down!


My family and I had no idea what to expect from this tour but we LOVED it. We try to take a tour like this everywhere we go and this one did not disappoint. Super interesting stories and everyone in our group seemed so into it. Highly recommend!

Unfortunately, Tour guide did not show up. I should have read previous reviews. Refund from TripAdvisor was processed without trouble.


My husband and I went to Charlottesville for a night getaway and decided to take this ghost tour! We love all things spooky and dark history. We had a new guide who was being shadowed by the regular guide and it was just so much fun! Everyone was really friendly, they had great stories about local and famous ghosts, and knew a lot about the locations. Some were creepy, some were emotional! We had a great time!


Hannah was very energetic and a great tour guide. We enjoyed our experience and learning about the Haunts of Charlottesville. She also gave a lot of information about Thomas Jefferson and other historic sites in the area. A fun evening


Fraudulent business! Myself and four friends visited Charlottesville and were most excited for this ghost tour as we try to do one in every historic town we visit. However, our tour guide never showed up to our meeting place. Still waiting on a refund. But, it was the waste of our last evening together that is the most frustrating.
