Ghost Tours of the Outer Banks/Outer Banks Tastes & Tales has a fun tour for you! After all, the Outer Banks has a history that includes Ghosts, Shipwrecks, Barrels of Rum, Pirates, original English settlers (and their mysterious disappearance) – and more. Our walking tours are the best way to get a close-up look at a local history, tales, homes and landscapes, where you can take in the sights, sounds, scents, and scenery first-hand at a leisurely pace.

We give our guests a little something extra! Our mission is to deliver a special, fun, unique tour experience which sparks your imagination! See things you may never have seen before! Learn things you may never have known before! We are committed to “keeping it local” and offer tours which feature the history and flavor that is uniquely and distinctively Outer Banks. All of our tours are carefully researched and based on local Outer Banks history, events & legends. 

*Please note that due to COVID-19, in order to accommodate guests safely, tour options will be limited to Ghost Tours for the summer 2020 season - specifically as these tours take place in uncrowded, open outdoor spaces and easily allow for physical distancing. We hope to be able to bring our other tours back on-line this fall.
