Cancellation and Refund Policy

We do not grant refunds, but we reserve the right to let customers reschedule their tours for better weather or to attend a tour on the next day if they are late, but this is not guaranteed. It is important that each group arrive to the start location on time. Because ghost tours commonly get sold out and since seating is limited, it is important for each person to arrive at the date and time they select, so that their reservation does not prevent others from ordering.

In the event of inclement weather, we advise guests to plan ahead and bring an umbrella or poncho. However, in the event that we cancel a tour for whatever reason, we will grant a 100% discount.

Please note that it is customer’s responsibility to arrive to the correct tour location on time. Refunds will not be given for those that arrive late or cannot find the meeting location. We occasionally reschedule customers on a case by case basis for a $10 rebooking fee.
