My group went on a class ghost tour with Tobacco Road Tours in early November and it was an excellent tour. Brad was great to work with and was willing to customize our tour to fit our needs. We learned a lot about North Carolina and Raleigh history on the tour, with some really fun ghost stories, too. We especially... More

Brad was a great guide and we all enjoyed learning about downtown Raleigh on our Halloween tour. We started with a presentation based on Brad's materials, pictures, and of course his immense experience and first-hand knowledge from a clear love for history. I would definitely recommend this. Our club is going to consider this activity on a regular basis.

I was a guest on the downtown raleigh holiday lights tour. I found the tour to be a great mix of information and humor. The hot chocolate and cookies were a nice touch. So yummy. Some of the stops were fayetteville street, the governor's mansion, happyland christmas lights, and Pullen Park to enjoy their holiday express event. I like how... More

Our tour guide (Emy) was great. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour itself was very interesting and I would recommend it as a way to see downtown for tourists or newer Raleigh residents.

I went on the Raleigh Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour to learn about the rich history of Raleigh, and hear some interesting ghost stories. My expectations were not met. First, our tour guide showed up 15 minutes late (even though the tour site stresses that you are there 10 minutes early so as not to miss the tour, and they do... More

We were on a girlfriend getaway in Raleigh. Our hostess thought this tour would be a great way to introduce us to Raleigh. We took Tobacco Road's "NatuRaleigh City Tour" one morning. Our meet up spot was near a convenient parking garage and then we headed out for a 3 hour tour of the city and parks of historic and... More

Overall a great Raleigh ghost tour with Brad. It was more historical than scary but told us some haunted tales that were surrounding the city. Brad even went past the 90 minutes and asked if he could keep talking about other things that have happened in the city. He was full of information and answered all of our questions. Highlights...
