Erin

Erin, our guide for the tour, was excellent and very informative. It was great to get into a couple of the oldest buildings in Williamstown and also learn some of the history of the area. No spirits appeared on the night that I was aware of although my wife did have a couple of sensations. We included a meal with our deal which was a set menu with 3 choices of main. Unfortunately the main I ordered was not available and we were the only people on the tour in the hotel for a meal.

've been on a few ghost tours but this one was one of the better ones

've been on a few ghost tours but this one was one of the better ones. Loved the atmosphere of the old, dark, narrow alleys, the morgue and hearing the ghost stories from our guide Carol who was wonderful. Loved it, and can't wait to go on the next haunt with Lantern Ghost Tours. Highly recommended

We were skeptical about this but I had been given the tickets for my birthday so me and my boyfriend went along

We were skeptical about this but I had been given the tickets for my birthday so me and my boyfriend went along. Firstly, the area is beautiful and we had a great dinner there at Sam's Boatshed. Our group had about 18 people and our guide was Anne/Ann and she was so friendly and informative. I had 3 things happen on my tour that I thought were cool 1.Both my boyfriend and another man on the tour got orbs in our photos at the silo 2. I saw the window on the second story of the time ball tower open (there was no wind) and my boyfriend took a photo of the window after I told him what I saw and there is what could possibly be a grumpy old man looking down at us and 3. Once when my boyfriend was holding the copper rods the left one kept vibrating at the end but his hand wasn't moving. So it ended up being a pretty cool night.
