Sean Finn was our tour guide and he was prompt, he spoke clearly and loudly enough that everyone in the group could easily hear him. Half the group deserted toward the end of the tour but it was due to one's child was getting scared, another couple's older mother was getting tired, and the other was a couple who were... More

I was in the Raleigh area for our family reunion and we had a bus tour with Brad as the tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm as we toured the Raleigh - Durham area. He knew and shared it all...the good and not so good history about the area. He was great in all aspects, even... More

We are empty nesters who have visited over 90% of the “good old USA”. We have had average tours, good tours, and “I can’t’ wait to get off of this van” tours. Last week, however, we had the pleasure to experience an outstanding, private tour of Raleigh and Durham with Brad from Tobacco Road Tours. Brad was informative, entertaining and... More

The evening was perfect, the sun setting and meeting on the Court House steps facing the foregone remnants of what use to be a grand hotel. Our tour-guide, Brad was AWESOME! He took us through the streets of Raleigh stopping a several buildings (some gave off a vibe as you approached, not knowing that he was going to stop and... More

My friends and I went on the haunted pub crawl as a lark, and we had the best time. Our tour guide Hannah was filled with many interesting anecdotes about the old city of Raleigh, and she even took our group to the City Cemetery, which was a very spooky site. She made sure that everyone was having a good... More

Bryant Tyndall was a very informative host. He told us a lot of interesting things about the governors mansion and Oakwood community homes. Then on to the Oakwood cemetery. We learned about many of the sections and some specific graves. I believe he knows more than we had time for that day. He is an excellent speaker and knows his... More

We had a great time on the Raleigh Historic Tour. As a Raleigh resident, I saw new places, learned new things and fell in love with Raleigh all over again. Brad, our tour guide, did a great job answering questions and providing hospitality. The air-conditioned bus was a huge plus!

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
