Have you ever felt that someone was looking over your shoulder, though you were certain no one was there? Have you ever seen something move that could not have moved on its own, or felt an icy chill in 90-degree heat? Have you ever found your personal objects misplaced in odd ways, or rearranged, though no man or beast could have touched them? You are not alone. And, if you live in the historic district of downtown Annapolis, you may not be alone right now. - from Megan H. Smith, Inside Annapolis

Got Ghosts? We Do!
And we'll tell you all about them...who they are, where they haunt, why they're still here, and to what ends these troubled souls go to in order to make their presence felt by those currently living in and intruding upon their domain!

Don't be fooled by imitators, there is only one best and original Annapolis Ghost Tour! Take a nighttime ghost walk through the historic downtown district on a spine-tingling journey into Annapolis’ dark and troubled history, while meeting some of our more spirited residents and visiting our most horrific haunted sites! Our tours will have you sleeping with one eye open!

From haunted taverns to restless spirits, we'll share the tales of these aged spirits:
  • Joe Morgue - the enthusiastic grave digger
  • Thomas Dance - a poor soul who died building the State House dome
  • The Headless Man - need we say more?
  • Amy, the "working girl" - she forever haunts the Rams Head Tavern
  • And many more!
So come and join us...if you DARE!

October 12th Walking Ghost Tour
ClemTiger168 Sun, Oct 12  8:00 PM Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
My new wife, Emily, and I toured with guide, Lana. We couldn't have been more pleased with the detail and information provided by our guide. She covered at least a half a dozen stories in under 90 minutes and made it fun for the entire group. I highly recommend the Walking Ghost Tour of Annapolis. Customers will get exactly what they came for and maybe more!

A fun trip through Downtown Annapolis
Blaze1989 Sat, Oct 11  7:00 PM Male 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
The walk was enjoyable and our tour guide was nice and informative. The only complaint we have was not being able to go into any of the building that we were told stories about. This is a very minor complaint however and in no way did this stop us from enjoying night. This is the second time I've been on one of these tours once in Baltimore and now this one. I would and will be going again in the future.

Too Stand Still & Uneventful to be Family Friendly
CrozDog Thu, Oct 9  8:00 PM Unspecified 40-49 Local Family With Children
We were looking very forward to this evening! Our group consisted of 4 couples and a handful of kids ranging in age between 9-12. All the kids were old enough to stand still, be respectful, tolerant and patient - several traits I thought they'd have to exhibit on occasion throughout the evening -- but not for the ENTIRE two hour tour (which ran overtime by at least 20 minutes). However, they were also looking, as were the adults of the group, for a little fun on a most perfect evening for a spooky tour. Quite frankly, we gave our guide many chances to impress and our views on the whole were hot and cold to start...we'd then warm up to her and by the end of the evening, were stone cold. She was not very engaging, bordering on rude at times, condescending towards the children and plain offensive when she dropped the F-Bomb during one of her soliloquies. Not our cup of tea and left late and disappointed by the end, in search of the nearest 'watering hole'. I think I'd rename this tour, 'The Sidewalk Soliloquy' and know with certainty, I would not have signed up for this had I known the ultimate outcome of the evening.

Fun and informative tour
bethanysrq Mon, Sep 1  8:00 PM Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I went on the ghost tour with my husband and my nine year old daughter. Our guide Sara was fabulous. I loved the stories she told. They were filled with details that made them more real. We also learned a lot about the history of annapolis. My daughter loves Scooby-Doo door and mysteries. This tour was not too scary for her. I would definitely recommend it.

Ratings and Reviews for:
Is this tour suitable for children?
Yes! We do however discuss "Working Girls" briefly (mainly through innuendo), and much of the tour is geared towards adults, but many people do bring their children and tell us that they enjoyed it thoroughly.
Do children need to be accompanied by an adult?
Yes, all participants, ages 5 - 13, must be chaperoned by someone age 17 or older. Proof of age may be required. Children under age 5 must be accompanied by an adult. Please notify us if you will be bringing non-paying children under the age of 5.
How long is your ghost tour?
The walking ghost tour is a leisurely 9/10th mile route around historic downtown Annapolis which lasts 1.5 - 2 hours. We make multiple stops at various haunted locations where we share with you the stories and legends. We do recommend that you wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather!
Do I need to buy tickets in advance?
Yes, advance ticket purchase is required as tours do sell out. Any remaining tickets not sold 30 minutes prior to each tour are available for walk-in purchase on a space-available basis only. Advance purchase is highly recommended to ensure your participation.
Can we bring cameras or video equipment?
But, of course!!! Some of the best ghost photos have been taken by unwitting photographers intending to shoot other subjects. Apparitions tend to show up in photos, even when you didn’t see anything while snapping the picture. The only thing we ask is that if you shoot a great ghost picture and sell it to the tabloids for a million dollars, you'll share some with us - just kidding. So good luck, and good hunting!
Does the tour happen rain or shine?
Yes, the tour runs in all weather unless it's deemed dangerous. If we cancel the tour, participants may reschedule for a future event.
Is there a minimum number of "tickets sold" required for the tour to depart?
Yes, we require a minimum number of paid guests before the tour will go out. If less than minimum are signed up 2 hours prior to the tour date/time, we will contact you to reschedule.
If I am running late for the tour, will you wait for me?
We always start the tour on time. If you are running late, please let us know (using the contact info on your e-ticket) and we will either place you in the next tour group, if space is available, or have one of our staff wait for you for a maximum of 15 minutes, and take you to the tour already in progress. Please give yourself plenty of time to find parking and get to the tour meeting point 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour to check-in! Also, if you're having dinner at one of our local restaurants, be sure to tell them what time you need to leave by so you, and they, can plan accordingly.
Do we go inside buildings during the tour?
No, the Walking Ghost Tours' stories and legends are told outside each location.
Is tipping acceptable?
Tipping is always acceptable, but not required - it is totally at your discretion. Our guides are highly professional and well-trained to entertain you and all of our guests. Many of our guests appreciate good service and choose to reward it, and the guides are always grateful.
Can I buy a gift certificate for the tour?
Yes, gift certificates are available and make perfect gifts for holidays, birthdays or any other occasion! To purchase a gift certificate, please click on the "Gift Certificates: Purchase" link in the box above.
Are dogs permitted on this tour?
Dogs are allowed on the walking tour so long as they are leashed, quiet, well-behaved, and you have adequate clean-up supplies with you, just in case!
Can I setup a private tour?
Yes, private tours are available and are perfect for corporate groups, social groups, scouts of all ages, church groups and anyone looking for a unique experience!. If you are interested in more information on private tours, click on the "group tours" link on our website: www.toursandcrawls.com
