Brief summary:
It’s one of the oldest ghost tours in the country – and the original Ghost Tour in Philadelphia – today, it’s known as one of the most unique and entertaining things to do in Philadelphia. This Ghost Tour of Philadelphia – Candlelight Walking Tour is a 75-90 minute tour of Independence Park and Society Hill led by a costumed storyteller.

Ghostly spirits, haunted houses, eerie graveyards, and mysterious gardens bring history back to life on this candlelit walking tour. You’ll learn all about the darkest secrets hidden in the shadows of America’s most historic and most haunted city and get to see many of the places where hauntings and other strange events have been reported.

All stories you’ll hear have been researched, historically documented, and verified to coincide with historical events and sites. Every story you’ll hear is steeped in history and many are based on personal interviews – they may be disturbing, amusing, or intriguing – but they’re all based on true experiences of real people.

These Ghost Tours are unique in that each storyteller brings something a little bit different to the theatrical delivery and style of the tour, so that no two tours are ever the same. Storyteller guides are required to commit two months learning the historical stories and working on their performance before they can lead a tour, so you know you’ll have a great experience.
