This was a great change of pace for a NY visit and a way to see the city through a unique lens. It was fun for my teenage boys and my mom as well, and I loved being able to walk, poke around streets, and notice interesting details while hearing haunting stories.

Journey into History - a Must have for Village Fans

Such a lovely tour. James did a great job. And we had a fantastic full moon - spooky! The tour is not only nice for all Stephen King lovers but also for the ones who are interested in the history of this fantastic place. We learned a lot about the early days of the neighborhood. I liked the tour much more than the standard tour for tourists going from hotspot to hotspot.

We did not get to hear much of the ghost walk, but that was not the guide’s fault. We did the tour during the 50th international Pride parade and we were in ground zero of the party. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area and helped us make it to the correct subway safely to escape the parade. Despite the parade, I will recommend it to anyone, just try not to do it during the pride parade
