All tours are about 90 minutes and just under a mile. We will be strolling at a very easy pace. The tour will primarily take place on sidewalks with possible uneven footing. Please wear comfortable shoes. (Leave your stilettos at home.) Tours are wheelchair accessible.
The tours are done rain or shine. If people show up in the rain, the guide will be there to take them on a tour. Unless of course there is a storm or unusually bad weather. Our customers’ wellbeing and safety are of the utmost importance to us.
We leave from in front of the Tweed Courthouse located at 52 Chambers St, New York, NY 10007. Check in is 15 minutes before the tour. For everyone’s courtesy, tours leave on time. Our tour ends near Bowling Green. Guest will be helped after the tour with directions to where they are going next. There are plenty of subway lines that stop near there.
A minimum of 2 people booked is required before the tour will go out in the unlikely event that only one person has signed up for the tour, a full refund will be issued. Or, if you wish to reschedule your tour, contact us, and we can help.
Sorry, we at 13 Nightmares we love children but those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets are non-refundable. If you have a situation where you cannot make a tour that you purchased tickets for, call us right away (within 24 hours of the tour start time), and we can try to work with you to get you on another tour. However, we cannot make guarantees of any availability beyond the tour you purchased tickets for.
Absolutely not. There are no jump scares or plastic rats on this tour. These are tours based on the paranormal history of lower Manhattan. You will soon learn that our city’s weird and scary history is stranger than anything fictional.
We cannot guarantee that. At these haunted locations, some people do, some don’t. But bring your camera. People often capture “things” in their photos that weren’t there when the picture was taken.
We do not enter locations. Some stops are private locations, most are parks and churches but we will describe all of the history and stories about the location. You’ll still be delighted!
