The real key to a good ghost tour is a guide who is really into it. There is an element of theater here and the guide is the star of the show. Well, Scarlett was a let down. For starters, she didn't give a hoot. If you do give a hoot, you don't stand up in front of the audience and talk about how you won't be doing this much longer and you can't wait to quit. It sort of ruins the show. Granted, she turned on the charm after that, but it was a bit late.
The driver was more entertaining than the guide.... LOL pretty sad. Still, the tour was good enough to rank a 3 star from the adults and a 5 star from the kids so, I gave it a four star here. In one sense, it was riding around in a trolley listening to Scarlett ramble. However, ghost tours are great ways to hear something new about a city. We heard some stories that were new to us and more detail about some that were familiar after our day time tour with the same company.
This brings up a key point. If you do the day and night tour with the same company, you get a discount. Also, we found that my 12 year old counted as a child here, which saved us money. The in person ticket booth met the online price, saving us a few bucks and, for whatever reason, they threw in the 2nd day of daytime trolley rides for free. I really can't complain about pricing.
Still, the ghost tour was not as interesting as our Boston tour with the same company. No night time walk through the cemetery.... a guide who really didn't care.....
Note, there was another guide involved. A guy masquerading as a ghost at a chandelry(?) did an excellent job of telling a few stories. I really enjoyed his little part of the show. He was into it and it showed.
