A fun little walk on a cold Halloween night.

If you are even a little bit curious about Huntsville history, the Civil War, paranormal or the Deep South in general, then this is definitely worth your time. The tour takes you through historic Huntsville complete with mansions, landmark homes, majestic trees, quaint neighborhoods. I've been on other Ghost Tours in other cities and found this to be really informative... More

The history of downtown huntsville was an educational treat by a local huntsville historian. The little EMF meter went off several times at the different stops along the way. One member of our group has a fantastic photo of an apparition in one of the haunted house windows. This will become a yearly tradition. Lots of fun!

I liked hearing the history of the Twickingham area that we toured with our guide, Bob. He recited a wonderful accounting of the events that took place at each stop. However, I would have liked to have had a little more haunting because some of the places we stopped really did not have any haunts of significance, but were more... More

Lots of history about the Huntsville area. Be sure to wear good shoes, lots of walking. Kevin was a great tour guide. Bring a camera my pictures have lots of orbs in them. Make sure to bring a few dollars with you in case you get thirsty, water stop along the way.

My friends and I love this and go multiple times every season. If Kevin is available, he is the BEST tour guide. He is our favorite!

My husband and I enjoyed the walk and the homes were beautiful but the stories were so-so. I would have liked less talk of "what the psychic said." Do the locals have no stories to tell?

I think it has a perfect blend of history, paranormal, and entertainment. I've been to walks where the tour guide talks about him/herself, acts goofy, or plays tricks on the crowd (using a remote-control to turn on lights and claim it's a ghost kind of thing). The guides are still fun without being ridiculous. Not having a public restroom is... More

The Huntsville Ghost Walk is different than ghost walks in other cities - in a great way! Their historic research is verifiable, and with the input from a medium, they can provide much more information than you normally get from other tours in other cities. The pace is fast, never boring, not at all "cheesy" or silly, and I was... More

We enjoyed our first ghost walk, and drove two hours from Birmingham to go on another one. We were shocked that the Harrison Brothers Hardware store does not allow the tour guests to use its restrooms. They are getting so much extra business from the tours, it seems like they could be accommodating. We were told that we could walk... More

I have been on the Huntsville Ghost Walk Tours a number of times, and I am always impressed by them. The guides are very nice and know their stuff. The history is very interesting, and the homes on the walks are beautiful. We've been on three of the tours, and my favorites are Old Town and Twickenham. If you will... More
