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.

As an Asheville native, I had seen these tours walking around for a while now. Go glad I got to finally participate and learn a great deal about my hometown! The guide was knowledgeable about the homes along Montford Ave and down Zillicoa and who knew that such a small area could have so much spooky history!!! Great tour and... More

We did the Montford tour and had a great time. Deb was very informative in the history of Montford and it's former residents. She also had visual props to go along with the stories and facts that we were told during the tour. I was delighted to go on this adventure and definitely look forward to doing it again. I... More

My husband and I are Asheville natives, however we had not been on a ghost tour before. Our friend, Michelle is a psychic that works with Deb quite frequently and she invited us to come and join them for a "Downtown Asheville" walking ghost tour. What an awesome experience for our first time. Not only did we get to use... More

It was the night of the super moon and Asheville was buzzing with people. A beautiful night to tour and learn a bit about the "other" side of the city. We were given ghost hunting tools of the trade and used them often to our amazement finding strong energies all over the city. We learned where the portals were, why... More
