Old Louisville Ghost Tour as Recommended by The New York Times

34 reviews
Old Louisville is a fascinating preservation district that has been gaining more and more national exposure because of its impressive collection of Victorian mansions and quirky residents. Developed primarily in the 1880s and 1890s, it once counted as the most sought-after residential enclave in the Derby City. This tour is based on books by author and storyteller David Dominé, who is an expert on Old Louisville and its history. He often shows up to guide the tours himself. The tales shared involve personal experiences and neighborhood gossip. The New York Times recommends a tour with his company, Louisville Historic Tours, as the first thing not to miss during a visitors "36 Hours in Louisville." <br><br>Please do not confuse our tours with other tours such as those offered downtown. We specialize in tours of Old Louisville, "America's Most Haunted Neighborhood." We depart from the corner of Fourth and Ormsby. If you love old houses and spooky history, this is the tour for you!

Our executive leadership team spent two hours on a Derby Quest - competing against each other in small teams on a scavenger hunt across the Derby Museum. Not only were the Louisville Quest folks super accommodating, but they also arranged for a fun, and informative, event. The Derby Museum is really interesting and the tour was entertaining as well. Add that to cool puzzles and a competition— it was a great way to bring our team together!

I went into this thinking it was going to be another boring team building activity. Could not have been more wrong. Imagine the amazing race. Working as teams to figure out riddles to get your clue to the next stop on the map. Riddles were challenging enough to be fun while not being too hard that they were frustrating. Highly recommend.

10 couples went on this for my wife’s 50th birthday. Everyone had a great time and talked about how fun it was and enjoyable to do something different. Very well run.

Team GHS had an absolute blast at the Louisville Quest and could not have asked for a greater experience! We worked hard and played hard together as teams- then met back up as a group in the end! Truly recommend checking it out-as a small or large group! Get your Quest on!!
