On a Haunted Manhattan tour, a secret underworld of ghosts and ghouls reveals itself as you’re guided through the streets of Greenwich Village by creepy characters who are experts on New York City’s outrageously spooky after-life. From the ghost train at the Astor Place subway stop to dead poets at the White Horse Tavern, you’ll see the landmarks that make up the heart of this city and the spirits that call them home.
A historical, hilarious and completely hair-raising experience, Haunted Manhattan will show you the greatest city there is like you’ve never seen it before.
Start your walking tour in New York City’s East Village, West Village, or Greenwich Village. Each trip visits 13 exciting locations.
Our Tour Guides
In the East Village, there’s Frankie, a bartender who’s used to dealing with patrons who just don’t want to heed Last Call. In the West Village, our Concierge will make sure that you’re resting in peace. And, of course, no one knows more about Greenwich Village than Professor Mortimer, though some students say his lectures are torture.
Join us for all of them, if you dare.
No one escapes being haunted by something that absolutely terrifies them to the core, but very few feel it’s okay to admit what it is that haunts us.
