What to expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: 111 State Street, Portsmouth, NH 03801, USA

This building was originally built in 1814 and has changed hands more times than a sailors eaten a bowl of clam chowder. And that’s most likely due to the ghosts that haunt the joint.


Pass By: 177 State Street, Portsmouth, NH 03801, USA

This old building dates back to 1815 and in its heyday it once housed one of most popular brothels in the city.

Pass By: 222 Court St, Portsmouth, NH 03801, USA

Built in 1749, this is pre-revolutionary building is one of the oldest still standing in Portsmouth. Below its foundation once ran the underground tunnel system that secretly connected many of the buildings in Portsmouth.


Stop At: African Burying Ground, 386 State St, Portsmouth, NH 03801-4035

The burial ground is said to be the largest of its kind in the United states and it’s believed that over 200 people from the African American community were buried here.

Originally built in 1785 The Rockingham was once one of the most prestigious hotels in New England. It welcomed the likes of presidents Franklin Roosevelt, JFK, Ulysses Grant and the author Mark Twain.

Pass By: John Paul Jones House, part of the Portsmouth Historical Society, 43 Middle St, Portsmouth, NH 03801-4302

Originally built in 1758 the old John Paul Jones house holds more ghosts than a than a Maine boat holds lobsters.

Some say old John Paul Jones lingers in the room he once slept.

Others have seen an angry spirit opening cabinets and slamming doors.


Pass By: The Music Hall, 28 Chestnut St, Portsmouth, NH 03801-6606

Over the past century world renowned acts have graced its halls including the magician Harry Houdini, gun swinging Buffalo Bill Cody and that clever fella Mark Twain.

The shows were so good that the ghosts decided to stick around.

The Brewery is not only one of the best spots in Portsmouth to get a drink and a burger while in town.

It’s also haunted by a flirty ghost of the night.

The interface of paying for the tour through TripAdvisor, then having to download the separate Walkntour app, then search for the tour in Walkntour and enter the purchase code did not work.

Learning the fun facts of Portsmouth NH. It was a cute little activity to do with my boyfriend. Although we didn’t see any ghost have any drinks slapped out of our hands it was all in all a fun activity.

The self guided tour was pretty awesome. They did a really good job. Would do it again and recommend it. Don't want to ruin it by saying things but they worked hard on it. Definitely wear your Bluetooth 🎧 headphones.

I could not get the Internet there and therefore the app did not work even when I downloaded the tour beforehand as suggested.
