Our family had a fun night on this tour. I recommend it for anyone looking to learn a few things about the island, and local ghosts too. It was only $10 per person and lasted between 1.5-2 hours. I would have liked a couple more stories, but it was still the best value tour on the MV.

This type of thing is right up my alley!! I have read many books on the paranormal of the Vineyard and Cape Cod so I could not wait to go. It was very historical and very informative. But, I expected more scare-factor. I'm not talking about making stuff up, just to make it scary but, actual "spirited" tales. If there... More

My family and I recently went on the Edgartown ghost walking tour. The good news: it only cost 10 bucks. The bad news: it's not very good. Now, I have zero belief in ghosts, and am 100% skeptical about all things paranormal. 100% means that I think all of this stuff is complete nonsense. But I am one of those... More

The 2 tour guides were very nice a woman and a gentleman. His story telling was much better, a bit tighter while she tended to run on a bit and tread away from the meat and potatoes of her story. They were funny however. They took us inside the closed Gazette offices in the dark as well as a church... More

We had a wonderful experience on the tour and learned a lot of interesting tidbits about the history of Martha's Vineyard beyond the Ghost Stories and Scandalous tales. Our guide was a very friendly lady and our group, three adults and a seven year old child, had a good time. It is much more compelling for those of us who... More

The tour given by 2 MV Gazette employees is informative and interesting but they need to tighten up their narrative as it's a bit too long and repetitive. It seems they're trying to convince their listeners to believe in ghosts rather than just telling their stories.

Not well organized and the stories well not well delivered. Groups are composed of 50/50 kids and adults. Time needs to be given to develop well practiced stories and "urban legends" that can appeal to both. Even the most famous "daggett house child in fireplace " ghost story was not told properly (at least the way we were told by... More

My family has been making annual fall trips to MV for the past decade when last year one of my aunt's found out about the evening walk. There are generally 20-25 of us ranging in age from 2-70 years old on the trip and we love to find something for all of us to do together. This walk was super... More
