Mike Baldwin was a tour guide last Saturday and he had our whole group cracking up! The tour was very professional, organized, and timely and Mike made it super fun! Definitely would recommend for a group outing or even a fun date or double date.

Our tour guides, JM and Brad, gave us a whole lot of crazy history about the state of NC and Raleigh. I've lived here for 5 years and didn't know the half of it! JM was the main DJ, great energy, funny, and handled our crazy group with good humor. Thanks guys!

Mike Baldwin, a local standup comic, narrated our tour and he is a laid back, friendly, funny guy who made the trip lots of fun. We made a few stops for sightseeing', had one well-timed stop for fill up your refreshments/restroom break, and spend the rest of the time learning about famous and infamous people, places around Raleigh and acorns...

My family and I had a great time! Chloe and Kelly were fantastic and very knowledgeable about the city's history. Additionally, both of them were tremendous and entertaining storytellers. Highly recommended.

We had an awesome time with Chloe as our tour guide last night! I really enjoyed all the history and background information she shared with us about Durham. We learned a lot and had a nice walk through the city! Thanks Chloe😊

I went on the Durham Pub Crawl & Haunted Adventure Tour with my brother and his fiance when they were in town. It was a great option to tour downtown Durham for a night and do something a little different! Chloe was our tour guide and started off the night with an overview of Durham history, which later brought the... More

Chloe was our tour guide. She had several great ghost stories to share. All the pubs served excellent beer. Well worth taking the time to do this. Thank you Chloe.

We celebrated my 45th birthday on the comedy bus tour. There were 22 of us and planning was made incredibly easy with the help of Brad. Our group met at Capital City Tavern prior to the tour, some bought their "beverages" at Paddy O Beers. The tour was very informative and our guide was hilarious. I highly recommend this as... More

This tour hits four Raleigh bars, local places with tons of character. While you walk, the guide (in our case, the friendly and knowledgeable Jacqueline) drops tons of Raleigh and North Carolina historical minutiae. Landmarks en route to more drinks include a statue of Sir Walter Raleigh (the Jude Law of his day) and the capitol. By far the highlight... More

We signed up online for a city tour. The day before our reservation they called to tell us the tour was cancelled because the guide had a family emergency. We were refunded our money but it's hard to believe that only one person could preform the task.

Thank you for your recent comment. We understand that you are disappointed that your tour was cancelled and we try very hard to prevent this, but some circumstances are beyond our control. Unfortunately, it is not that easy to pull in a replacement guide at the last minute. Not all guides are trained on each of our tours, and this... More
