    It was a good tour but more about the area than ghosts. Also we were with a group of 31 so keeping everyone on the narrow sidewalks and walking at night was a little rough. One of our members quit the tour because she was afraid she would fall.

    Tour guide Ben was really nice and informative, but tour overall was lacking. This tour needs to be renamed. Maybe something along the lines of Historical NYC Walking Tour with reference to possible hauntings in the area. Not sure, but the name isn't the best. Also, there were quite a few kids on our tour, and they looked really bored. I don't think it was meant for kids at all.

    We liked the tour very much. With her gripping stories about haunted places in the Village, the guide fascinated us all. In the twilight the places seemed really haunted, even, of course, we saw no ghosts. The tour took us to magnificent streets in the West Village and we learned a lots of interesting facts about the history of the neighbourhood.

    This was slightly strange, the tour itself was fascinating and brought out some interesting stories...but I wouldn't categorise it as a Ghost Tour as we'd thought, really only a couple of stop off points were allegedly haunted, but as a historical tour it was very good...

    Sorry did not enjoy this tour. It should be renamed 'History tour of Greenwich Village'. The tour took us around all of Greenwich Village, which is beautiful and well worth a visit, but its not a Ghost tour. The guide takes you to different houses where famous people have died! The only positive thing to come from this tour was we got to see Greenwich Village, which we probably would not have visited. I would highly recommend a visit to Greenwich Village with it lovely Bistro's and streets but make the trip yourself, not on this Ghost Tour, sorry.

    We all thought this was amazing. The tour was cool and we could relate to some of the authors,poets that were discussed. The story about The Raven was cool. We had to go back to the last stop and check out the scary cat statue in the window of a house next to Mark Twain's house.We thought the tour was very informative. We also thought that it was a little ironic that most of the the buildings are under new construction/renovation. At the time of the tour two of our boys were reading Huckleberry Finn. Thanks for the great tour.

    Good to walk around Greenwich with a purpose, especially to freshen up after arriving from the UK. Tour guidewas uninteresting in the main and was not a good orator sowe drifted off after an hour. Overall ok but not the most interesting talk.
