I went when it was pretty hot out, which kept my group small. I've seen some reviews where there were more than 20 and I can't imagine - seems impossible to hear! It's all about the ghost stories, so if you're going for history you...More

We have been on this tour three times and each time has been different and enjoyable! Jodi, the guide, is a walking encyclopedia of ghost and murder stories concerning Jefferson. Be prepared for a long walk, since the tour takes over two hours, but definitely...More

The ghost walk is now seven days a week. Highly recommend this as a fun and informative history of Jefferson. October is the busiest time so be prepared for extremely large crowds. On this particular tour we did go to The Grove and that is...More
