Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the tour?
The tour takes about one hour and the entire walking distance is approximately one mile.

Are these true stories?
Yes. The stories told on the tour are based on the books of Adi-Kent Thomas Jeffrey, a best-selling author who researched and investigated all of her stories.

Do you have actors in costume jumping out to scare people?
No, we do not hire people to scare anyone on the tour. If you experience anything out of the ordinary, it's the real thing.

Am I allowed to take pictures on the tour?
Yes, you are permitted to take pictures and/or use paranormal equipment. If you notice anything unusual, we ask that you share it with us.

If I take the tour, will I see a ghost?
Perhaps. Throughout the years, many people have had paranormal experiences while on the tour. Adi-Kent Thomas Jeffrey said over 10% of her guests would have a paranormal experience while on her tours. We believe that figure is much higher now. The reason? Due to the popularity of cell phone cameras on and paranormal equipment, more people are taking pictures now than in the 80s when Adi-Kent was hosting the tours.

Is smoking permitted on the tour?
No. For the sake of the other guests, as well as our tour guides (smoke wreaks havoc on their voices), we ask that you kindly refrain from smoking while on the tour.

Is the tour appropriate for children?
Generally, the tour is appropriate for ages 10 and up, however, this is a relative question as every child is different. If your child is very sensitive and scared easily, the tour may be too much for him/her. On the other hand, if you have a younger child who loves ghost stories, s/he will have no problem with the tour. You are the best judge on what is appropriate for your children. If you would like to discuss it further with us or need more information, please give us a call at 215-348-1598.

Do we ride in a bus for the tour?
No, this is a walking tour.

Do we go inside buildings to hear the stories?
No, due to insurance restrictions, we are not permitted inside any of the buildings. The entire tour is outside and we walk from location to location.

What happens if it rains?
We ask that you check the weather ahead of time and prepare for any light rain or drizzle, as we will do the tour in these conditions. For the safety of our guests and tour guides, we reserve the right to cancel the tour due to dangerous conditions, such as thunderstorms, snow, heavy downpours or a forecast of a hurricane, tornado or any other hazardous weather. You can check our Facebook page if the weather is questionable and you think we might cancel.

Are beverages permitted on the tour?
Yes, as long as they are NON-alcoholic and you properly dispose of your empty bottles, cups or other trash. Please note, alcoholic beverages are NOT permitted on the streets of New Hope and certainly not welcome on the tour. If you are openly intoxicated and/or disruptive on the tour, you will be asked to leave without a refund. If you are asked to leave and do not cooperate, we will call the police.
