This was a nice little tour. Knowledgeable and professional guide. Easy walk through a lovely little town rich in history and folklore. Guide told a good story (guaranteed to scare the kids!) without being corny. Good way to spend a couple of hours after dinner. Tip: there's ample free parking in the nearby garage.

I have been on lots of ghost tours when on vacation but why not go when close to home??? My husband and I greatly enjoyed Marge's ghost tour. She gives quite a bit of Franklin history along with the ghost stories. Overall, most were "friendly" ghost stories, so would not be too scary for children. At the end, she has... More

We did the Ghost Tour one evening. It started off fairly interesting, as I usually like to hear stories behind various "hauntings." Even if you're not a believer in the supernatural, you usually get some interested history that you wouldn't otherwise hear. Our guide was very into his material, possibly too into it. Our tour that should have been 1... More

Went on the Franklin Food Tour with Margie and had a blast! It was perfectly paced and the food was incredible. I've lived in the area all of my life and still had not been to all of the restaurants on the tour, so I really enjoyed getting to try a few new places that I will definitely be going... More

What a great tour! We did the Classic Franklin Tour. Margie was very knowledgable and friendly...we couldn't believe it was only $15! We enjoyed her so much that we went back for a Franklin Food Tour 2 days later with her. Thanks, Margie! :)
