"The Hooker was informative and very entertaining. I am a Floridian and really enjoyed his narration of Key West's history. I highly recommend this tour. It is the fun way to learn about Key West."

“Our ‘Ghost Host’ Mr. Hooker is probably the absolute best performance tour guide I have ever had the pleasure of seeing perform. Not only did Mr. Hooker know the history of “Bone Island”, where all the skeletons were buried and such, he also knew why the hauntings were so focused on Key West. He never broke character- no matter how much I questioned, heckled, and dared him to give up Mr. hooker to his ‘normal’ persona. By the end of the tour, he had me completely convinced that he was exactly the Mr. Hooker from times long past, connected to Robert the Doll, the deadly epidemics of the past on ‘bone isle’ and that he was really there to hook my ole bones.”

“I am physically handicapped, and while I can walk, it is very difficult and painful to do so. I chose the tour Ghosts and Graveyards because it said wheelchair accessible, and because I have a thing for folklore. I have arranged every ghost tour from London to Key West to Salem, Massachusetts, and I wasn’t about to miss this one – especially with Robert the Doll as top bill! So, as such, I booked the wheelchair accessible option, figuring it would be far easier with the accessibility. Just as the bus pulled up, we noted that the tour looked no different than the normal version. I asked, no – begged – my husband to inquire about handicapped accessibility, and low and behold – it was NOT handicapped accessible. However, Mr. Hooker said, “Let me check our route and see what we could do. He came back moments later with a plan so that I could handle everything except Robert the Doll. Then, after finding out that Robert the Doll was my key motivation – he even came up with a plan to make that happen too. Talk about customer service! On top of that, it all worked out perfectly! He had to arrange some really interesting things to make it all work, but it went off without a hitch!”

“My family took your Ghosts and Gravestones Tour and had the best tour guide we have ever had and her name was Lily Lynch; she made the tour informative, scary and a bit funny at the same time; we have taken the tour before and have always liked it but she went over the top with a great pirate costume and what I thought for sure was a real old English accent. My wife who really is not that much into history paid attention to her every word and had a blast. This young lady deserves a pat on the back for a job well done. If we had history teachers like her in schools, we would have all the kids learning about history. Aye Aye to Captain Lily Lynch. We will be sure to ride again the next time in Key West! Thank You!”

"Getting to visit Robert the doll at night was definitely the highlight of this adventure. No other Key West Ghost tour offers such a disturbing and demented experience as this (Which is why we chose this one! For the record.) Thanks again Hooker! As a creepy bonus we got to watch young children carry around battery powered ghost detectors." Photo: The Hooker didn't like my t-shirt choice... He was an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and entertaining!

“We had a group of 4 go on the tour on Saturday. We had a blast… The actors were really great and kept us entertained as well as provided many historical facts about Key West. We got an EMF meter when we arrived at the Fort; there were some spots where it went crazy and lit up. We saw Robert and said hello, but did not take any photos of him. We took lots of photos at the fort but didn’t catch any orbs this time. It’s definitely worth taking this tour.”

“Our entire family had a great time on your tour. It was informative, entertaining and your guide was a great story teller. I especially enjoyed seeing Robert and the haunted fort.”

“My new husband and I took the trolley tour in Key West this past week while visiting on our honeymoon. We had such an amazing time!!! Richard the driver and Raven our tour guide were AWESOME!!!! I have always wanted to take one of these excursions but never had the chance before. From my husband and myself, THANK YOU for making our honeymoon even more amazing!!! I do have some photos that I’d like to share with you – or at least have someone take a look – I may or may not have gotten some orbs. Either way it’s a sweet story!!!!”

“I was one of the lucky people on our tour to get the EMF meter. I immediately gave my camera to my friend to take pictures so I could concentrate on the meter. I had just a few minor hits outside where Robert was. As soon as I went into Robert’s room the meter immediately went all the way to red. A gentleman standing beside me said that Robert must like me because the meter kept going to red and then go all the way down for a few seconds then back up. My meter was the only one to go all the way to red and consistently. As everyone was leaving the room the gentleman and myself were the only ones left in the room. I asked Robert to light the lights up on my meter but I guess he didn’t want to right then. The gentleman and myself said goodbye to Robert and headed to the door. As I was walking out the door to the outside the meter went all the way to red again. It was as if Robert was saying goodbye to me. This was the most awesome thing that has ever happened to me. Thank you for a wonderful experience.”
