The ghost tour was great! Margie knows what she's talking about. Not only was the ghost tour fun, I also enjoyed learning bits of history. We will be taking more of her tours when we return to Franklin.

Great tour! Very well organized and executed. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Highly highly recommend. You will learn a lot about Franklin Tennessee. The food selection at the restaurants was extraordinary. The experience is well worth the trip to Franklin. Looking forward to bringing back many more friends for future tours.

Margie did an excellent job. Since I had lived in Franklin for 19 years I knew she was knowledgeable. She also knew of some places that I didn't know were haunted. Was a fascinating tour.

Easy to find, free parking, great shops and boutiques. I could easily spend another day there! Nice houses in the area. If that area didn't have a WINTER, I'd consider buying a house there!
