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.

The ghost stories were cool, but otherwise the tour was an expensive way to visit bars that I was already familiar with. (There were no special drink offers as stated on the website.) I was particularly put off by the uncomfortable interaction our guide had with a person who was begging for money and by the statement that people only... More

Our first time in Raleigh and wanted an air conditioned tour instead of a walking tour. Brad was more than what we expected. Personable and interested in his tourists. He extended tour because he had the time and had more things to fit in that he thought we would enjoy and we did. My only complaint and was mentioned by... More

The pubs we visited were especially welcoming and the route of the tour was an easy and fun walk. I would recommend Brad to anyone looking for something different to do in Raleigh.

Yesterday four of us took the Tobacco Road tour of Raleigh with Brad. It was ok, a fair value for the money, and we saw most of what there is to see in Raleigh. Unfortunately, the tour bus windows are more than 50% covered with advertising on the outside which makes it very hard to see out clearly from the... More
