Haunted & Twisted History Ghost Tour
Join us for a spooky stroll through North Carolina’s capital city. On this entertaining and informative Raleigh Haunted & Twisted History walking tour, you will hear stories about ghosts, hauntings, and other paranormal activity in Raleigh. This walking tour is not your typical “ghost tour” with special effects, and we will not be looking for ghosts. Instead, it is a history tour that discusses real hauntings resulting from past events and other twisted, unbelievable historical happenings. Please note that there is a significant historical component to this tour!
The Raleigh ghost tour begins outside the front gate of the N.C. Executive Mansion (Governor’s Mansion), 200 N. Blount St, at the corner of Blount St. and Jones St. There are stops at several city landmarks, where your guide will discuss the history and legacy of the Raleigh landmark and then regale you with an eerie story. Other haunted and twisted stories will be presented as the group ventures along the route. This ghost tour is a perfect combination of haunts and history!
PLEASE NOTE: This Raleigh ghost tour is NOT recommended for children under 14 years old, due to the graphic nature of a few of the stories. We will start at the Governor’s Mansion at 200 N. Blount St. The Governor’s Mansion takes up an entire city block, so please make sure that you are on the Blount St. side of the mansion. The starting point is in the middle of the block outside the front gate. Please do NOT attempt to enter the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion at any time. Also, please do NOT call the Governor’s Mansion or buzz any of the intercoms at the Mansion gates. The tour route is little over 1 mile long, and the end point of the tour is approximately 2 blocks away from the starting point. In addition, we will NOT be entering any of the buildings listed in this tour description.
The Haunted & Twisted History Tours are approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes long, but may be slightly shorter than that depending on the size and speed of the group. There will not be any restroom breaks or stops for food/drinks.
We recently launched a second ghost tour route with ALL new material! You can check out our Even More Haunted & Twisted History Tour here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/even-more-haunted-twisted-history-walking-tour-tickets-71691730897
These tours are pay-what-you-want — if you enjoy the tour, please compensate your guide appropriately! Usually, the guide receives $15 to $20 per adult, but you are free to give more or less than that, depending on how you feel about your tour. As you can imagine, the tour guide has to work hard to earn your appreciation!
