I took the new cemetery walk, it was fun, interesting historical perspective of past women, and men of the Bayfield area who had a great impact on local history. Great for kids, and families! I do the tours every year!!! New stories and tour guides give me new perspectives! Thanks! Keep up the great work!!!

This was a fun tour that's a little spooky as well. It was a great way to view the side streets of this quaint town. Would recommend if you like history and ghosts stories!

I guess young children could have fun walking in the evening with lanterns. If you are an adult save your time and money. Our guide was not very good at telling stories, some of her comments could have been appropriate for a three year old. The only positive point in this experience: the walk made us burn some extra calories.

We took the Cemetery tour with Virginia and really enjoyed it. We all learned something new and our kids ages 6 and 9 found it pretty interesting as well. We live in the area and plan to take the other tours she offers.

If you are looking for something interesting to do that is out of the ordinary, than the tours are super. I love the cemetary tour, and have been on all of them. Check it out when in town....

Our guide was a wonderful storyteller and historian. She made the history of Bayfield come alive, and was a pleasure to listen to. While you probably won't see any ghosts, you will hear many good ghost stories, and learn a good deal about the town's history. We very much enjoyed this tour.

My daughter and I decided to try out the Ghost tour. After reading the good reviews we felt we could not go wrong. However we were somewhat disappointed. Firstly we did not tour with Virginia Hirsch and this might have been the problem. The Woman that took us on tour was very knowledgeable but did not have that spark to... More

Even though I'm still a huge skeptic when it comes to anything supernatural, I really enjoyed the ghost your. The guide was knowledgable and fun, and it's a great way to learn about Bayfield's storied history.
