The tour was great, very informative and fun for myself and my friends. We all enjoyed ourselves very much and our tour guide, Travis was wonderful. Lots of history, lots of haunts (and a lot of wind and some cold rain) made for a great night out!

Difficult to hear the guide with all the traffic and when one of the people I was with had to use the restroom we were not allowed back on the tour all because we had to step off for a few minutes.
