Who doesn't love a good ghost story? Manteo-based Outer Banks Tastes & Tales can tell you some great ones on their Outer Banks Ghost & Legends Tours. The only thing better might be their other tours: Pirate Tales! Terror, Treasure & Treason; The Dead of Night: Ghosts & Graves; Adult Beverage Tasting Tours; and Manteo Historic Homes Tours. The Outer Banks has a rich history of ghosts, shipwrecks, pirates, moonshining, English settlers (and their mysterious disappearance) and much more, and these experienced tour guides can tell you all about it. Walking tours are a great way to get to know a town. Strolling at a leisurely pace through town, you'll soak up the sights and sounds of the local Manteo landscape while at the same time learning about the town's history. Outer Banks Tastes & Tales makes the walking tour experience all the better by adding food and drink to the mix. The Adult Beverage Tasting Tour for ages 21 and older is guided by a costumed pirate who shares tales and drinking history related to the Outer Banks, and rum, wine and beer samples are included. The Manteo Historic Homes Walking Tour is a guided tour that passes by local homes, buildings and points of interest. Ask about private Food Tasting Tours and custom tours. The guides are passionate storytellers with backgrounds in education and recreation, and they work hard to make sure their customers are interested and entertained. Walking tour distances cover a half-mile to a mile and a half and last from one to one and a half hours. Prices and hours are on the website or call for information.
