The staff is excellent. If you want to intetact with ghosts this is the place to go. My first ghost hunting event and it was excellent. If you go in the winter make sure to dress warm. We plan to go back.

I love TALA! I can't visit this beautiful building enough. I have done several overnight ghost hunts and plan do to many more. The owners are doing wonderful things to the building. It is a beautiful piece of architecture to see. I do have to say Rebecca and her staff are just awesome!!!!!

Courteous, knowledgeable, fun tour guide and staff! We had a blast learning while ghost hunting. We aren't professional ghost hunters, but we had an AWESOME time and experience.
