Melissa was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the town. Did the walking tour at dusk on a Sunday evening in early April and got a good sense of the town's history and some really interesting stories about the town. Also captured a "ghostly" image of a figure in the front door of a house with my iPhone.... More

I did this beautiful walking tour this past Saturday night for the 5th time. That's how good this tour is! I keep going back! Melissa is an excellent tour guide. I love how she weaves the tales between the history and the haunted stories as we stroll along the streets of the beautiful antebellum homes of historic Madison. She even... More

This is a great tour! Melissa is a wonderful tour guide, and she made this a fun event. She provided a great history lesson about the city of Madison, and I recommend others take her tour.

We had 55 ladies traveled by bus for a day trip to Madison, Georgia. We had Melissa come on our bus and give us about an hour of the historical parts of Madison. She did a great job, everyone really enjoyed the tour.

If you want to truly understand and appreciate the history of the area, this tour is essential and completely worth the time. Melissa is a local and an expert tour guide with extensive knowledge of the area, its people, and the past/present. She made us comfortable right away and we laughed and learned with her. As two history teachers, we... More

Melissa provides a very good first timer's tour of Madison for those who prefer a guided tour. The walking tour is about 2 hours and loops through the historic neighborhood and the cemetery. Not being a native of Madison, she has really studied-up and is very knowledgeable of the area and its residents. Those who prefer a more in-depth background... More

Come back anytime and I will be happy to give you a tour specifically about local lore. I fear you may have missed some of it driving along behind us in the van. Happy Holidays to you and your family. It is always my pleasure to meet nice families! More

It was refreshing to learn what the people were like from years gone by. Our guide, Melissa P. told us surprising things about folks buried Madison, Georgia! Come schedule a walking tour of the cemetery! Or tour the historic homes and take a carriage ride (that's her specialty)!
