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

Brad was great. I'm a local and really enjoyed learning fun facts and historic stories. I recommend you book a tour and enjoy a three hour bus ride with like minded folks who enjoy fun. Plus you get a bit to eat and it was awesome!

Was our guide's first tour and she tried her best. Stories were light on details and Durham history. Had to ask when some of the haunted events occured. She forgot to mention the name of the one church. With practice she'll get better with her delivery. Not a very spooky tour if that's what your looking for.

My boyfriend and I, who have lived in the Triangle area for years, went on the Raleigh Pub Crawl and Haunted Adventure in June. Despite being knowledgeable about the area, we both learned something new, and visited bars that were previously unknown to us. If you're in town for the weekend, enjoy history and/or beer, and don't mind a bit... More

I booked this tour for a business event organised in Durham. The group found it very interesting and informative, it was pitched to their event/business level and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended for Durham entertainment when booking private groups.
