Overall the tour provided some interesting history of the area. We didn't get the real sense of some super scary happenings; however, someone brought little kids on the tour, which doesn't really bode well generally for some good ghost stories. The kids asked lots of amusing questions but I was looking more for my own entertainment and I left mine... More

This is not your grandmother's walking tour, unless your grandmother likes her history lessons served up on a modern plate of ancient mystery. The creator and leader of this tour, Tad, is funny, irreverent and learned. His is the thinking person's walking tour. Probably not a walk for families with real little kids because Tad does not dumb it down... More

Our tour guide Brian weaved together historical facts with legends and chilling events that happened during Asheville's past. After hearing all these stories, I felt like I got to know the town and its skeletons more during this tour. I highly recommend this tour (and tour guide!) when in Asheville.

Great way to spend the evening- interesting narrative and fun conversation. Special thanks to our guide, Tad, for taking us to get a latte. Most excellent, sir.

Our only expectations were to have some fun, hear a little history of Asheville and a few spooky stories. The only thing we got is a few lame stories that were stretched out to fill the time. Not interesting or spooky in any way. I can't say if the other ghost tours in town are any better, but this one... More

We lived this tour. Tad, our guide, was extremely knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. He was a very talented storyteller. We do not like the cheesy, costumed, cheap scares kind of tours. Happily, this was not one of them. Highly recommend it, especially if Tad is giving the tour.

Tad was an awesome tour guide. He was very interesting and the tour was a lot of fun. This was a great experience for the cost. Would definitely recommend.

Brian was our tour guide and did a fantastic job! The tour went over a few minutes which was fine with everyone because it was so interesting that everybody wanted to keep going. He made sure to include historical facts in with the tour, which made it that much better. We'll definitely go again. :) Best haunted tour I've been... More

Let me preface this by saying that I enjoy haunted pub crawls. I do them wherever I go; however, I fail to understand how people rate this particular pub crawl so highly. All of the stories that were told were told on the street on our walks between pubs, not inside any of the pubs. The guy telling the story... More

I talked to all our guides and no one has a story about a guy in the 80s being hit by a car in the street (or anything similar). It is possible you took another company's tour. Feel free to email me at contact@HauntedAsheville.com if you'd like to clarify more about your experience. More
