Experience The Best Ghost Tour in Portsmouth!

Bone-chilling fun and educational

Amazing and eye-opening tour of the portsmouth waterfront. Roxie, the tour guide, was awesome and full of great information. The 90 minute tour flew by so fast even though it was freezing and raining out. Highly recommend booking this tour if you really want to know the down and dirty of portsmouth past.

Historically Spooky!

We absolutely enjoyed our tour! Roxie was our tour guide and owner of New England Curiosities. So, knowledgeable about so much history in Portsmouth,NH. It was interesting to hear and see where all these spooky ghost stories started and where these tragedies took place. It is very important to learn from the past and remember in the present. If you enjoy the paranormal and love history this is the tour for you! Spooky

Road trip worthy!!!

Being that autumn/Halloween is our most favorite time of the year we like to travel for different, unique events. This year took a trip up to Portsmouth NH for The Witche's Cottage event and it was so worth the drive!!! Such a beautiful area and lovely event! Can't wait til next year! Thank You Roxie!

Portsmouth Ghost Tour

Roxie was incredible! My husband and I live right in downtown Portsmouth and did the ghost tour. We learned so much about the history literally right outside our front door! It was very fascinating how much she knows about the area. Roxie clearly is passionate about what she does and is entertaining along the way! Highly recommend whether you are local or visiting! There is so much history here to learn!

Amazing experience. I highly recommend enjoying this for yourself. So much more than I expected I learned new facts about historical events that took place in Portsmouth. Ghost stories and legends were brought to life before our eyes by our magical tour guide Roxie Zwicker. Walking along the beautiful streets melds the past and present together to create a wonderful blend that one can't stop drinking in. I would love to go again.
