Great tour - This was a great tour. At first I was hesitant because I was concerned about the treatment of the mules but they are happy and well taken care of. We learned a lot from our guide, Sarah, and the side was relaxing.

Fun Haunting Ghost Carriage Ride - Lucas and Praline were so fun! Lucas brought the ghost stories to life for us. He did give us the option on in depth we wanted the stories which I thought was great. Lucas would break up the ghost stories with humor. I would definitely recommend the haunted history ghost tour. Ask for Lucas and Praline!!!

Nope, not my vibe - Nice carriage ride but boring. Wish our driver was a better storyteller. Was disappointed to be honest. Lots of stops which felt like dragging out the time. Wouldn't recommend.
