Not so sure about finding ghosts on this tour but it was filled with information on the history of Marietta and some of the things that happened near here. Our guide was very friendly and he made the trip fun. We would do this tour...More

Overall the idea of the trolley tour and the different spots were great. But it says on their website the tour is 90 minutes long. The tour ended right at 60 minutes. The tour guide didn't seem very into it, lost her train of thought...More

Didn't know until we'd started the trolley tour, that a couple of our stops would be affected by a football game that night - a homecoming game no less. Streets were blocked and we couldn't get to a couple of places on the tour. The...More

This was a fun evening out with friends. I learned some history but the guide was a little bland. It was not spooky and the guide did not even seem to believe his stories.

If you don't mind a little walking, the night time ghost stories and history tour is fun! Lots of haunted buildings with lots of history and information on the underground tunnels under Marietta. This was a really fun tour.

Terrible. Do NOT waste your money. It is nothing but a hearsay bunch of talk and history. Adding the Root house just pulls you in further to purchasing a ticket. I was actually excited about this tour and boy what a let down. Just one...More

Sure you're told a several stories, but they aren't very interesting nor do they have one thing to do with a legitimate ghost or spirit. There is a bunch of historical tales but nothing particular about a specific spirit or ghost. The Root House isn't...More
