Owner description: The largest & oldest running ghost tour in Asheville! Designed by Joshua P. Warren, author of HAUNTED ASHEVILLE, we offer five different paranormal tours, & we are the ONLY tour that takes you inside the "Asheville Mystery Museum" in the basement of the Masonic Lodge! On your tour, we use digital tabs and lasers to explore Asheville's dark history, the Brown Mountain Lights, and our region's most ominous spooks and specters. See why we've always been #1!

“Vampire/Occult Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

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 for anyone. Thank god. If you are the least bit curious about the secrets of the Free Masons or Asheville, do yourself a favor and spring for this tour.

“Classic Walking Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

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.

“Don't waste your time or money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

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 wasn't entertaining at all.

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

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.
