Here is what I like about this tour company. First they're licensed- always a good thing. Second, they take their tours seriously. The guides aren't wearing costumes or playing a character. They're more like a fun professor. Thirdly, the group size stays between 10 and 20 people. If you've even been on a tour larger than that, you know how hard it is to hear what's going on. And finally, and most importantly, this tour company only offers "dark, macabre, fantastic, frightening, and unusual tours" of New York. I'm sold!
If you're looking for plans for Mother's Day there is a tour offered that day called The Magic and Mysticism of Central Park that sounds really interesting. I'm also interested in a tour called Weird Tales of the West Village. You just know that's going to be crazy.
Ok, so you're really not going to make it anytime soon? You're in luck. The founder of the tour company is Andrea Janes who wrote a fictional book of ghost stories called Boroughs of the Dead: New York City Ghost Stories which you can purchase from their website. Ta Da! Everyone goes home a winner.
