For Ghost City Tours, Philadelphia has been a city we've been wanting to open up in for quite some time. Being the ghost tour company that puts the focus on the history behind the hauntings, it is only natural that we operate ghost tours in Philadelphia.

Ghost City began operating tours in 2012, and before long, we became the Best Ghost Tour Company in the Country. Our dedication to quality and authenticity has not only set us apart from the rest but made us the leader in the industry.

Ghost City Tours has spent many years researching the ghost stories and haunted locations in and around Philadelphia. This means that when you choose Ghost City Tours you hear the true story of the ghosts and hauntings in Philadelphia. You'll also hear about the history of Philadelphia and local legends, including sites linked to the American Revolution.
We like pushing the envelope, offering tourists and locals alike a chance to join our Guides and journey into areas of Philadelphia which are not on the popular routes through town. Many of them are featured on television shows like Ghost Adventures or Ghost Hunters.

We understand that you may have some questions about our Ghost Tours - and you don't want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.
Are these walking tours?
ALL of our Ghost Tours are Walking Tours. You do have other options, such as Hearse Ghost Tours and Trolley Ghost Tours. To FEEL the energy which our ghosts give off, you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Imagine walking through a haunted alley with all of the lights out, or standing on what was once a battlefield. Are you already feeling the tingles up your spine?
Can I buy tickets for your Ghost Tours through Groupon?
Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are companies which offer their tickets for sale on Groupon. And if you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting - you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets.
We know that our experiences are of the highest quality, with thousands of 5-star reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed them. Also, we often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.
Does Ghost City Tours offer Trolley or Carriage Ghost Tours?
There are a few options to take a ghost tour by vehicle. In Philadelphia, you can choose from a Trolley Ghost Tour or even one in a hearse.
If you're interested in taking one of these trolley ghost tours or a hearse ghost tour you'll have to go to those companies' websites and buy from them. We believe that walking tours are the best way to experience paranormal activity in Philadelphia.
We understand that you may have your heart set on riding around the haunted streets of Philadelphia in a Hearse or Trolley - but you cannot do this from Ghost City. If you want a paranormal experience that is truly spooky, Ghost City is the way to go.
Is this a Ghost Tour where we go into Haunted Places?
Some locations allow us to come in; most don't. Many of the locations that you'll be visiting are private residences. Obviously the residents would not be happy about us coming into their homes. Therefore we do not go into most of the locations we visit.
If you're looking for a Ghost Tour where you can enter the building itself, we highly recommend our Haunted Group Tours. Every stop on the Group Tours allows you to enter the building - and sometimes even into areas that are off access for the general public.
Once I purchase tickets, can I get a refund?
All ticket sales are final. Like any other performance, and yes, our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. Therefore, we cannot give you a refund should you decide not to attend.
However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. We allow our guests to reschedule their tickets to another date or time, as long as you do it at least 12 hours in advance.
For your family ghost tours, what is the age of a child?
When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.
Keep in mind, some of our tours are simply for ages 16+ or 21+ only. For those tours there is only one ticket type you can choose from.
What days of the week are your Ghost Tours available for?
All of our Tours run 7 days per week. In addition, we often open up additional time slots for our tours as the original time sells out. If you want to book a tour Ghost City Tours will ensure that we are able to fit you in a tour. We still advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as you know which tour you want to take.
