  • Daniel made it VERY easy to arrange a special ghost tour outside the 'high season.' He was professional, friendly, and on top of the variables. We showed up at the Coop and were greeted by Caitlin in awesome Victorian woolens for our cold and rainy day. We had a group of 30 and she has a perfect voice to carry. She was SO knowledgeable, funny, and very engaging. We had something like 8 stops in our loop through Cambridge and the Harvard Yard and she was able to offer rich detail of each location. An excellent experience that I highly recommend!
  • Daniel was an amazing guide! He was extremely knowledgeable.
