    This was a great way to see the city and learn a lot in a short amount of time. Payton (sp?) was our guide and she did a great job! She was so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole experience. We had a 5 year old with us and she helped to keep her interested and engaged. The covered cart and blankets on a chilly day were perfect! We would highly recommend this tour if you’re in the Charlotte area.

    Our tour guide, Tiffany, was an exuberant storyteller teller. This was an easy stroll through the city with creepy ghost stories.

    DO THIS TOUR! My sisters came to visit for my birthday and we love doing ghost tours, this was absolutely in our top three of all we’ve done all over the world! Lisa was such a bubbly sweetheart who made the tour beyond entertaining and welcoming. It was POURING out and you’d think that would ruin an experience but Lisa still made it so much fun! The rain didn’t damper a bit of it! I will be recommending this tour to everyone!!

    The tour guide got the entire history of Charlotte, from the trading trail going back into the Middle Ages through the Revolutionary War through the Harlem Renaissance through the industrial evolution from mills to banks and all the way to the very recent Illumination Alley. It was a nicely paced three mile walk with wonderful information and enthusiasm. The tour guide told me she is especially devoted to the arts culture of Uptown and it showed. I loved that we met by the Spiral sculpture dedicated to Romare Bearden, loved the geography and history, loved the variety of visions from many time periods of Charlotte pulled together into a coherent story. I recommended the tour to my colleagues at length when I went to my meeting the next day.

    This was a girl's trip for family. Six of us were in the group. Our tour guide David was excellent! Extremely knowledgeable about Charlotte and his love for city shown through. Would highly recommend this tour! We followed his recommendation and had fried chicken and green beans at Mert's and it was great! Thank you David!

    Lot of fun. Had friends in town for the weekend so we went on the Tour. We went to four locations. Each had a different vibe and different beers. Vinnie the Tour Guide was great. He was very knowledgeable and explained the tasting, brewing process but left plenty of time for everyone to catch up and talk among ourselves as well. Highly recommend.

    Danny was a great guide; we were the only ones on the tour that day/time and were treated to a private tour of the city with Danny customizing it as we went, based on our preferences. Fun and so informative!

    Both my wife and I were looking for something interesting and fun to do centered around Halloween festivities. When we discovered that there was a ghost themed, true crime, tour and uptown, where you can ride on golf carts, we instantly jumped forward. We were certainly not disappointed. They were two golf carts that drove us around uptown. And the drivers of each cart would share stories about the areas as you drill through them. One of our first stops was a very large cemetery. Here we heard about many of the tails the cemetery had to tell from and from beyond the grave. So much history to be had. Both my wife and I love history and we got a good earful of it on this tour. It’s always interesting to hear the stories and many things that I’ve gone on before from streets that you’re used to walking, but never knew the stories of. Our tour guides are both very good storytellers and presented an atmosphere. That was friendly, lively and intriguing. We learned of tales of many of the older historically preserved homes of 4th ward. Certainly peaked my interest, and I certainly will be doing further studies on all the interesting things that happen in that period throughout decades of old. One of the last stops was the DunHill hotel. Sad state of affairs that hotel has held throughout the years. They say that the hotel is inhabited by a lively ghost, named Dusty, keeping the staff and those residing, if only for a night, on their toes or clinging to their sheets in fear, of the unknown. The tour was slated to be an hour and a half, which turned into two hours. In this case longer was certainly better in my book. They didn’t seem to feel the need to rush through anything to get back. They left plenty of time for questions and comments, and for creating a generally entertaining atmosphere. The golf carts were very comfortable not those rickety old ones that give you a sore back when you’ve driven through any streets in uptown. Two thumbs up from me, and two thumbs up from my wife. We will be interested in learning of the other tours they have. We hear they have really good historical tour if you’d like to learn more about historical Charlotte.

    Joe did a great job showing us the city. It was the first run of his day and we were his only customers. He is very knowledgeable about Charlotte having lived there most of his life. We learned a lot and had a fun time as well!
