My husband and I had a great time on the tour. We learned a lot about the city of Asheville, and we got all sorts of weird stuff in our photos. Another family on the tour had buildings completely disappear out of their photos - creepy! Kat our guide was terrific and knew a lot about the city and things... More

I was a little worried about taking this tour, since there seemed to be so many varying reviews online, but it is completely worth every dollar you pay to do it. I have been on several other ghost tours in my life, and this was the best. Our guides name was Cat (like the animal) and she was by far... More

I forget the tour guide's name but he was very knowledgable of the community and city. We really enjoyed hearing the history of Asheville and seeing all the historic places where these ghost stories originated. Everyone from the guy we checked in with to the tour guide and the trolley driver were just so polite and professional we would recommend... More

Deb was great. This was a last minute idea and we are so glad we did it. We learned so much about downtown and it got spooky! We had 10 people go and everyone had at least one scare! I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!!

I decided to go on the tour at a last moment. It was another couple and just me. In all I can say that the tour was pretty interesting. I took a lot of photographs that had orbs and mists in them, which is really cool. The tour guide also told us a little about the history of Asheville,NC which... More

My friend and I went on the Montford and Downtown tours. Both were interesting, although there was a lot of noise and activity downtown that made it a bit difficult to hear. Unfortunately, we were also with a group of older teenagers whose chaperone would not keep them quiet and focused. Also, the overhead power lines caused false positive responses... More

TripAdvisor can be a funny thing. People can swear at you, abuse you, stalk you and hold you hostage that they'll write a negative review if ... You're supposed to take it. We atypically draw a line and sometimes pay for it -- as we have with this person.This guest wrote a glowing report on our webpage, we answered her... More

This is the type of fun everyone should seek when on a family vacation. In between touring the Biltmore, enjoying Asheville's delicious food and craft brews, breathing in the mountain air, and shopping for art in this amazingly creative town, this tour was a unique way to "get the lay of the land" in the downtown area. Our very patient... More

On their website, Ghost Hunters of Asheville boasts that they give you EMF Detectors and other tools and make you think that you will be going on a "real" Ghost Hunt. This was just one big joke! Yes, they give you tools, but the "Ghost Hunt" was really just a night walking tour of a few city blocks. The guide... More

While your review history reveals you don't easily give good reviews, we are still sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We try to facilitate guests having increased knowledge of the paranormal, using ghost-hunting equipment and obtaining paranormal photographs. People get out of experiences what they bring to them, but it is perhaps truer with our tour. Open-mindedness, keen attention, and... More

Me and my wife really enjoyed our Ghost hunt w/ Deb Maddox. She is thorough, equipped and very engaging. Hunting ghosts is something we (as African-American people) do NOT do; nevertheless, Deb made the experience worthwhile and my wife and I now have one more memory to add to our album. The saddest part of the event was hearing about... More

We went on the Montford ghost tour this past weekend and it was wonderful. The tour guide answered questions, orbs and mists were caught in pictures and lots of history was learned about that area. I really enjoyed it, the guide brings pictures from past gusts and historical photos to show during the tour. I highly recommend this tour-it's great.
