“fun tour for out of townder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

my husband and i signed up as this was our first time in the raleigh-durham area. our guide was a great story teller and we learned a lot about the history of durham. the "ghost stories" weren't great and i think it would be better if it the tour was just called a historic downtown durham pub crawl as learning about its history was really interesting. the bars were awesome, especially the speak easy spot called whiskey.

“It's All About the Guide”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Four of us took the Raleigh Pub Crawl and Haunted Adventure Tour on Saturday August 25th and we bailed out before the final pub. Tobacco Tours overall had a very good web check-out process and a smooth check-in process at our meeting site. Overall, the guides storytelling ability is what makes this tour - not very good with last nights experience given there were 20 people in the tour. The final pub ended at Tir Na Nog - We were told the cover is included in our tour price, according to the pub, they don't charge cover until after 10:00 and the tour ended prior to 10:00. I would certainly go on another tour with Tobacco, my advice is to research the actual guide to ensure a great experience.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, it is appreciated. Glad you did overall enjoy the tour in Raleigh. We agree about guides for sure. Sometimes, we all have an off day. It is possible that TRT's guide was pre-occupied and we apologize is this was the case. We try very hard to provide a rock solid experience for all of our guests. Thanks again and we hope to see you on another TRT tour.

“Learning is fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

Had the opportunity to take two wonderful tours recently of Raleigh, NC with Tobacco Road Tours. The First tour was a delightful driving adventure learning all about the history of Raleigh and its beginnings with a variety of stops along the way. Our host, Brad was very lively and shared so much information with us and made the tour so much fun. The next night I took the evening Haunted Adventures tour. That was a great night time walking tour of downtown and city landmarks. We would never do that in Los Angeles!!! I had such a great time on my tours and I really enjoyed being a tourist and highly recommend spending time taking a tour when in Raleigh wih Tobacco Road Tours.

“So glad we called”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

My mom and I reserved spots for the Historic Raleigh Tour with Matt. He was terrific! We spent 2 1/2 hours listening to stories about the old days and saw some of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen. He even took us for a carousel ride! I was so sad when the tour was over - he left you craving for more sights and information about such a beautiful city. I would love to go on the other tours they offer, so if I'm ever back in the area I will definitely book with them again.
