Chesapeake Ghost Tour Storytellers
Chesapeake Ghost Tour Storytellers

Meet the  Chesapeake Ghost Tour team that includes storytellers, sales team and customer service.  The company was founded by Mindie Burgoyne, who also wrote and designed all of the tours. She also trained the storytellers.  It’s a family business with additional assistance given by Mindie’s husband, Dan and their daughter, Lara who handles customer service.

Most of the storytelling team started as guests on the ghost tours. All of our guides were avid history or ghost tour fans before they joined our team. They are some of the most committed, friendly, knowledgeable people you’ll ever meet, and they each could entertain you for hours with their storytelling capabilities.
