Rick is a great storyteller. Highly entertaining. We had a great time. Rick gives a lot history behind the haunted areas. You stand on the sidewalk as Rick tells you about the haunted history of the nearby buildings. If you think you are going to...More

Skilled storytelling makes this fun for believers, skeptics, and the uncommitted alike! :) We will do this again next time we are in WV!

Worst ghost tour I've ever been on. I think the guide was making things up as he was going. He was even trying to rent out a few apartments on the tour. Not worth $14

I've been through several ghost tours before. This is by far the best. The tour guide is entertaining and extremely informative. He is a true storyteller.

Had a wonderful time on this tour. It was off season so was pretty cold so we ended up sitting in the church for the story-telling. You would think that wouldn't make for a good tour but you would be wrong. Rick was an engaging...More

I think so. As the other people said it is more about stories than scaring people. Our guide, Rick is a historian as well as an entertainer.
