Wonderful city trek... - This was a great trip to do with our older children. Our guide was fantastic and knew a lot about the history of Asheville and its supernatural entities. The trip alone was worth the plethora of historical information and the stories were interesting. Would definitely recommend as a great way to see the city and learn about its colorful history.

A Wonderful Walk of the City - As a local, I have heard many of the ghost stories featured in the tour. However, this tour provides great detail while taking you right up to historical landmarks. My guide was enthusiastic, personable, and loved to share more stories as we walked. He also offered many suggestions for getting to know different areas of the city. I would recommend this tour not only to those who are curious about the spooky side but who are also interested in learning about different chapters in Western North Carolina History.

Great Time! - We had a great time learning about the history. Our 11 and 13 year old sons came along. I was nervous they would get bored but to our surprise they loved it! They wanted to do more tours!

Bride or Die Bach! - This was such a fun and unique experience! I booked a larger group for my friend's bachelorette party, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the stories and history of Asheville. We got to learn so much about the local culture and development of Asheville's infrastructure while the tour also integrated folktales and stories from locals. I highly recommend this tour, but be sure you wear comfortable walking shoes! We walked for about an hour and a half total, but we did have breaks to sit and rest while the tour guide told the stories.

Minimally audible - We had a nice time walking around Asheville on this tour. It was very difficult to hear with the crowd of over 40 though. The storytelling was mediocre. We recommend individual headsets for every participant. We left wanting more.
