Garret Moffett picked my husband and I up this morning for a half day tour. It was worth every penny. He tailored the tour to our interests. He is so knowledgeable on Lincoln History--he can answer anything you want to know about. Do not hesitate to book a tour with Springfield Walks.

2 adults...we went on this tour looking for something other than the bar scene with no real expectations..nothing spooky or strange about this tour...just another Abe Lincoln tour but at night..some of the locations had a little to much "questionable" foot traffic at night making us a little sketchy of our surroundings. Not really worth the money..

This was the first time anyone in our group had done a walking ghost tour, so we were not sure what to expect. The guide was very friendly; however, he was far too soft spoken and we had trouble hearing him above the noisy traffic. The stories he told about Springfield were very interesting, and we were able to go... More

We "stumbled" upon this great tour two summers ago and have brought guests back with us! Ditto all the glowing remarks about the Lincoln Ghost Walk: so interesting, informative, well done!

Where do I start? We hired Garrett for the daytime walk and had the best time ever. We learned so much more than we would have doing the sights on our own. Garrett was so informative with great stories, facts and information that you'd only get from reading lots of books. It was great fun hanging with him for the... More

A wonderful experience! Our "90 minute" tour was closer to 2 hours when adding in questions and extra jokes. ;) It was great - not too much walking - we spent a lot of time sitting down on the steps of a church or the benches at the Lincoln home. Had many great stories and a different perspective of Lincoln... More

We had a blast doing the Ghost Walk tour in Springfield. Our tour guide, Garrett, was terrific and we highly recommend him! He takes his role very seriously in imparting his knowledge of all things Lincoln!

We had a warm evening for the walking tour. Our guide Molly was personable, organized & gave a good tour. My almost 13 year old was not very interested but I found it interesting. The town is flat so walking is easy.

This walk started at 7:30. The guide was very entertaining and informative. We had planned to go to Springfield and found many attractions were closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so we decided to do this walk. A VERY good decision. We very much enjoyed the stories, the personal input and the chatter with the guide. There were about 20 of... More
