WHICH TOUR DO YOU RECOMMEND?
If you do believe in spooks, we can recommend The Ultimate Greenwich Village Ghost Tour. Each stop has been carefully selected based on several years’ research and experience leading tours in the West Village and Greenwich Village. We’ve taken the highlights from all those ghost walks and melded them into one top-notch two hour ghost tour. Finally, Dark Histories of Lower Manhattan wends its way through Lower Manhattan — one of the oldest and most haunted areas in the city — and features a lot of history along with its ghost stories. Ghosts of the Titanic remains ever popular, though we only offer it once a year, on April 14th and/or 15th. If you just can’t wait til then, we do offer private tours of our Titanic walk, or any of our ghost walks.

WHAT ARE YOUR INCLEMENT WEATHER AND REFUND POLICIES?
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
Tours run rain or shine. We have a “walk-in-all-weather” policy at Boroughs of the Dead, so please be sure to dress for the weather and bring appropriate footwear and/or rain and snow gear if applicable. Tours may be amended in order to accommodate our guests comfortably in the event of unpleasant weather.
In rare cases, extreme weather makes it dangerous or impossible to run a tour as scheduled. In the event extreme weather conditions prevent us from running a tour as scheduled, you will be given a rain check to take any other regularly scheduled public tour at your convenience (subject to availability). Weather-related schedule changes are generally tied to National Weather Service alerts, but for our purposes “extreme” weather refers to any weather condition that makes outdoor touring dangerous to our staff and customers.
EMERGENCIES & DISASTERS
In the event other emergencies beyond our control (such as a terrorist attack or any other unforeseen and uncontrollable event) prevent us from running a tour as scheduled, you will be given a rain check to take any other regularly scheduled public tour at your convenience (subject to availability).
Tickets are fully refundable up to 24 hours before the tour start time. In the event you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice, we can provide you with a credit or re-book you to another tour. No refunds, credits, or exchanges will be given in the case of no-shows or late arrivals (defined as arriving more than ten minutes past the stated tour start time). As such we highly recommend you arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled tour start time, and utilize the maps provided with your ticket confirmation, to ensure you are at the starting point in time to locate and meet your tour. No exceptions will be made to this refund policy.
