Fun walking tour of several homes in downtown Franklin, supposedly haunted by ghosts. Tour guide was wonderful, very informative of history of the areas and homes. Carried an Ipad with photos capturing images of some ghosts. Well worth the 20. fee and highly recommend.

Our Widow of the South tour includes tickets to the 3 houses that you then tour on your own. Each site offers its own tours. You save quite a bit doing it this way.

Absolutely. We welcome dogs on all our tours. We do briefly go inside a couple places on some daytime tours, however. One is a church that doesn't allow dogs. Which tour were you considering?

Most tours are 90 minutes. Food tour is longer. Cost for most is $20 per adult, less for teens and kids. Not a lot of walking. They stick to downtown historic area, stopping at several spots to tell you about the history.
