What You'll Get
While a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour the city terra firma-style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a walking ghost tour ($15 for adults; $10 for children under 12) at Providence Ghost Tour. Tours begin at 7 p.m. at Prospect Terrace on Congdon Street. Choose from the following options:
- September 24 or 25
- October 1 or 2
- October 3 – October 9
- October 10 – October 16
- October 17 – October 23
- October 24 – October 31
- November 5 or 6
- November 12 or 13
Named to TripAdvisor’s 2009 list of top American ghost tours, Providence Ghost Tour is the result of more than 300 hours of research that addresses tourists of the present with creepy slaps from the past. For about an hour-and-a-half, guests follow the light of the guide’s lantern through East Side streets, stopping outside various buildings to hear stories about “abnormal” deaths, suicides, murders, accidents, and re-murders. Tour-goers can document the haunted sites with photographs, which may show mysterious orbs or shadows that resemble Pat Boone. During the tour, no monsters, ghouls, or anything else jumps out to challenge you to a spell-off; the scary stories are enough to administer healthy amounts of fright. The tour covers steep and uneven ground, so comfortable shoes are recommended.
TripAdvisors named the Providence Ghost Tour the number-one attraction in Providence. It was also named one of the top five things to do in Providence by Teen Travel Talk. The Brown Daily Herald and Associated Content both featured the Providence Ghost Tour. More than 800 Facebookers are fans, and six TripAdvisors award it an average of 4.5 owl eyes:
- The tour guides don't do the spooking - the stories take care of that themselves. – Brianna Barzola, Brown Daily Herald
- Travel around the East Side of Providence while hearing stories that are sure to send shivers up your spine. The Providence Ghost Tour is an amazing way to learn about Providence’s dark history in one spooky, story-filled evening. – Elise, Teen Travel Talk
