"This isn’t a tacky tourist trap or a collection of generic urban legends. This walking tour dives deep into Pittsburgh history to unearth forgotten tales . . . all featuring a good scare or two. Prepare to learn a few juicy Steel City secrets." (Pittsburgh Magazine)
Our Ghost Tours: Join us for a spine-tingling, outdoor, walking ghost tour of one of America's most haunted cities. Our downtown tour starts at the City-County Building, 414 Grant Street (note: NOT the County Courthouse). We'll take you as close to as many haunted sites as we can within the time allotted for the tour and regale you with Pittsburgh's greatest ghost stories--we know where all the bodies are buried! Pittsburgh has a North Side and a South Side--we take you to its dark side. Tours run rain or shine.
WHEN: Usually Fridays and Saturdays: Spring to early November (check the ORDER page for availability). Extra tours in October. Tours start at 7 p.m. and run approximately 75 to 90 minutes.
PRICE: Price: $18 per adult, $10 for kids 12 and under. All ordering is done online via Showclix. We pay Pittsburgh's amusement tax.
WHERE: Downtown Pittsburgh: the front of the City-County Building 414 Grant St, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. Tours run rain or shine, and we start on time. (Sorry, there are no public restrooms available at the City-County Building at the time we do our tours).
PARKING: For parking options, go here. (In addition, there is a large public parking lot directly across the street from the City-County Building.)
BE FOREWARNED: If you are looking for underpaid actors with fake English accents donning ghoul costumes and telling stories that are obviously made up, THIS ISN'T THE TOUR FOR YOU. If you get a thrill when zombie-wannabes, bathed in strobe lights and caked in grotesque make-up, jump out and grab you, THIS ISN'T THE TOUR FOR YOU. If you are pining to see door knockers transform into the face of Jacob Marley, THIS ISN'T THE TOUR FOR YOU. But if you like to hear about Western Pennsylvania's creepy history--stories that will raise the hair on the back of your neck and leave you feeling a tad uneasy before you shut out the lights at night--this is the tour for you. This is the real deal: we tell good old-fashioned ghost stories--creepy stories, stories that are "meticulously researched, brilliantly crafted, and beautifully told" (post-gazette.com).
