I'm not sure why no recent reviews have been written on this tour, but we almost did not go because of the lack of reviews. We're glad we decided to go. We took the walking tour on a Saturday night. The walk was about 12 blocks total---not as long as it sounds---and lasted about 90 minutes with about 11 or... More

First of all, I realize you won't always or even most of the time see paranormal activity on a ghost tour. However, the tour of the military park was not the best I have ever been on. The time listed for the tour was 90 minutes. It was closer to 60-70 minutes. You meet outside of the park and drive... More

Morgan did a fine narration of some of the fighting and death on the the battlefield and told some neat first-hand accounts of ghost sightings but I had a problem with the fact that we were given so little time to take pictures. The website said it was a 90 minute tour and after 70 minutes we were exiting the... More

Morgan puts the history of Vicksburg together with the history of hauntings in a very compelling way. In addition to the deep knowledge he has, his engaging style keeps you riveted to the focus of the walk. It almost feels as though he might just "call up" a spirit. Very enjoyable adventure.

This tour is a good combination of local history, local lore, with a splash of chills throw in. Mr. Gates, the owner and our guide is wonderful. I agree with all the prior reviews, but offer a new perspective. He is the like the best tour guide of the city, with all the text book knowledge, all the local contacts,... More

Mr Gates, the owner and driver/guide for our tour of historic down town, has a way with telling stories. Despite the freezing temperatures, he kept us engaged with colorful details of old Vicksburg. He finished each historically based tale with ghostly testimonies of the building owners that he interviewed over the past few years. Mr Gates is a wonderful story... More

We were there over Columbus Day weekend and got the opportunity to do the Walking Tour. We got started late because our guide never got our phone messages. We really enjoyed it. Our guide was very knowledgeable . I wish we had time to do the military cemetery tour as well but we ran out of time. The only complaint... More

My husband and I did the Military Park tour and thought it was so interesting. Once a month, in partnership with the park, Haunted Vicksburg is allowed into the park after hours when it is EXTREMELY dark. It is definitely a different experience visiting at night. Our tour guide gave a very eerie and interesting historical account of the battle.... More

Toured the battlefield at dusk for a one and a half hour tour to some of the hotspots for paranormal activity. Lots of orbs in several pictures and even had what appears to be a soldier in one!! Most national parks don't allow visitors after dark, and this is the only way to do it in Vicksburg!

While visiting Vicksburg, my husband and I wanted to try something different. So we did the haunted driving tour. It was an amazing experience. Morgan was the best. We learned alot of history about the town as well as the local tales. I would def recommend this to anyone who wants to experience something different.
