As someone who doesn’t believe much in ghosts, it didn’t matter one bit. Our tour guide, The Undertaker, was a blast and knew his history down to the bone(s). Learned a lot, laughed lot, and I recommend it 100%!

Matt, The Undertaker is a fabulous guide as you pointed out! We love that you shared that skeptics and believers will all enjoy his tour! … and you are right! He knows his history!! Thanks for the great review and welcome to the family!

Lame. Silly. Not worth the money. The host was boring and made terrible jokes. Perhaps just not my cup of tea.
icon Response from Host , Apr. 2022
Thanks for the two star review. I wish you would have called us, I would have gladly allowed you to come back with another guide or would have given you a partial refund. I went back and the guide in question consistently receives 4 and 5 star reviews so perhaps this wasn't your cup of tea. I hope you find a tour that better suits you.
