    My friend and I traveled down from North Carolina and New York. This had been one of the top ghost tours that was recommended and we were not disappointed. Our tour guide was not only full of information on each location we visited but a entertaining actor as well. My friend and I were not disappointed with the tour, and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the city and it’s dark, mysterious secrets that lie behind the beautiful sights.

    Tough time hearing our guide even though it was only 4 of us. I don’t think there was enough story telling.
