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

We went on the Ghost Walk last year and had a really good time. Jackie was our guide. She was very knowledgeable, and being a history nerd, I totally loved it. I give the Ghost Walk 4 out of 5 stars for our visit last year. Now they have three walks, so we will have to check out the other... More

My husband and I had a blast on all three tours in 2010. I can't say that any one was better than the others. The price was very reasonable. We learned FACTS about Huntsville we never knew, and enjoyed ghost stories along the way. We can't wait to join the knowledgable guides again this season!

I've been on several ghost tours throughout the southeast, and the Huntsville tour seemed somewhat mediocre overall. My guide was wonderful - she was very friendly and knew her history, which was great. The price was also very reasonable. However, the tour itself did not have a frightening undertone whatsoever, which I expected from a "ghost" tour. There were several... More

My husband and I attended the ghost walk tour last summer which took us through the Old Town neighborhood. This was their first year, so we didn't expect much. The guide provided interesting ghost stories backed by historical facts. We went back this year hoping for an improved presentation. We were surprised that they have now broken it up into... More
