What a blast

"Our tour guide Holly was awesome! She started the tour with a story about her background. She showed us her ghost hunting tools. So much fun and will spread the word out to go on her tour. I think Holly has connected to all of the ghosts and they feel comfortable around her."

Highly recommend

"Wonderful tour guide who was lively, funny and incorporated a tremendous amount of historical facts into the script. The walk itself is manageable for children (may be tough for strollers but doable)."

Fun evening

"We met inside the Marriott, so you don’t get burnt out by the weather before the evening begins. John was our guide and he is such a masterful storyteller that orb chasing should be left for another evening. Loved the stories, not the weather."
