Owner description: A Year-Round Walking Ghost Tour in Historic Downtown Decatur Ga.Discover Decatur's Spirit Community with tales of...MURDER, PASSION, VICE, WAR AND TRAGEDY. Your tour begins in the heart of Downtown Decatur's Historic Town Square. A diverse enclave of quaint shops and restaurants that share common space with the ghosts of Decatur's exciting past. You will never forget the twilight visit to Old Decatur Cemetery... some of the city's most notable citizens are interred here. Don't be surprised if you capture orbs and apparitions with your camera. Decatur's dead are pretty restless. Every stop along the DECATUR GHOST TOUR route has claims of paranormal activity.

“Fun Fall Activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

We went on a cool fall evening and had a great time. The tour guides are friendly and funny. You learn a little Decatur history while getting your ghost on.

“COLD DARK RAINY FABULOUS GHOST TOUR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

We hit the jackpot last night. Starting out with a nice breeze and a few scattered clouds, we were more than surprised when dark, fat rain clouds and strong winds descended while we gathered at the old courthouse. Boo Newell, our guide, was more than willing to let us back out when the rain came down but our group of a dozen or more carried on, already sucked into the tour and wanting more of what was to come. Not only did we capture orbs, but my son started to spontaneously cry when we reached the church where the ghost of a sad woman remained. This is a fantastic tour and it is led by a genuine intuitive woman who is so accustomed to seeing the spirits, it actually might shift your perspective on scary ghosts. I highly recommend this for travelers and residents. A MUST DO! The rain let up and the sky cleared after an hour. The dark starry sky added to the experience - one we will never forget! Boo's co-tour guide, Beth, was also wonderful! Thanks for a great experience.

Boo shared wonderful stories and I learned history of Decatur that even as a local didn't know. Will take the tour again and bring friends!

“Nice enough tour but more anecdote than fact”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

Having been in the area for quite a while and having a passing interest in ghosts, cemeteries, etc., I would say this tour is pretty "touristy". Decatur has a few ghosts, but this tour seemed to conjure up a few I have never heard of anywhere else.
