Better than expected

JR and Karen are wonderful tour guides. We were expecting just a tour with stories but instead got short stories with much more 'hunting' than expected. It's a very hands on... read more

We thoroughly enjoyed this. Karen was knowledgable and very personable. My teenagers even had fun. It was definitely a fun way to explore the town.

JR and Karen are wonderful tour guides. We were expecting just a tour with stories but instead got short stories with much more 'hunting' than expected. It's a very hands on, interactive tour and JR doesn't just tell the stories but throws in other tidbits about the immediate area also. This was a great experience with a guide who has... More

All was fun and entertaining and Karen was very knowledgeable with the local history too. Needless to... More

This walk is indeed a HUNT and not a storytelling tour. No stories about particular 'ghosts'; several stories about deaths and one near fatal injury. Nice little walk but guide often commented, "Three blocks from here there used to be a..." or "You're standing eight blocks away from where X happened..." leaving me to wonder why we didn't walk to...

I went here last year for the first time and I would honestly have to admit that I had a complete blast! You do not have to have children to have fun while going on the tour ! Highly recommended
