  • Never disappoints must take this tour!!
  • Definitely not what you expect when you hear “ghost tour”, wish the website was more clear on what it was. We basically walked around the town at night in a large crowd while the guy told us the history of Harpers Ferry. My friend and I ended up leaving halfway through because it was not what we thought we were paying for and the people in the crowd were just awful. People were taking flash photography at night which as you could imagine ruined the whole “at night” concept. Others were vaping and smoking and blowing it into the crowd. Just awful night, terrible experience, waste of money. Really boring, and should not be labeled as “ghost tour” but more like “history tour”. The guy was nice though.
