Recently enjoyed a guided step-on/step-off tour of Raleigh with Brad. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining and humorous. We were challenged by the number of roads closed for the St. Patty's Day parade and Brad was able to make great fun of it. Ended the tour with a visit to Pullen's Park where we enjoyed the warm sunshine (haven't seen much... More

My daughter and I were looking for something fun to do so we went on the haunted pub crawl. Shawn was a very nice guy but we kept looking for the fun to start. He gave a lot of information but not much on the haunted stuff. One of the bars we were taken to were serving drinks at $16... More

Dear SD, We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback. Our goal is to provide a fun & entertainment evening for 80% or more of our audience. We typically hit the mark. Shawn always advises our guests on the drink expense that you reference in your opinion. The bar in question has $5 beers for those like you... More

We are used to city tours where its say 80% sightseeing and 20% history where this tour is just the reverse with about 80% history (such as who owned such and such house or who is buried in such and such plot ) and 20% sightseeing. We wished we could have gotten some more sightseeing per se and would have... More

Some of my friends and I went on the haunted pub crawl in Raleigh. Emily, our tour guide, was well spoken, personable, and obviously knew the content very well. She was approachable between the stories and in the pubs and was able to answer any questions I had. My friends and I really enjoyed the stories and the pubs and... More

We started the day knowing almost nothing about Durham and this tour changed all of that. Our tour guide, Brad Kennedy, knew so much and knew how to share it with the stories he told and the places we went. We really got a feel for what Durham had been and what it is now. The tour took more than... More

With our teenage nephew visiting from Los Angeles, my wife and I booked an evening Ghost Tour of downtown Raleigh and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Michael, our guide, was well informed and an excellent storyteller. A fun, informative and eerie evening was had by all! Downtown Raleigh is definitely worth the visit.

There were 2 tour guides, so I'll divide this up between the two of them. Michael: He was quite good. Engaging storyteller, well-versed on his topic. He even looked like a guy who should be leading a ghost tour. He had the right demeanor for it. If it had been just him, I would probably give this tour a much... More
