Great tour of a city with lots of history

Brian's knowledge of, and love for, the city of Asheville shines through on this tour. We learned a ton of history, learned about and saw photos of ghosts on the tour, and picked up other tips about the city along the way. A great way to pick up some history and have fun in a new place.

Bethany_T, Mar 2023
This was sincerely the best ghost tour we’ve ever been on. The tour guide was amazing as was his knowledge and general love for what he does. We learned so much and it was the perfect balance of history and it’s interesting stories that lead us to believe the likely possibility that ghosts are real.

Kim_P, Jan 2023
Our guide was AMAZING. Everything was well thought out and entertaining. Wasn’t sure if I could last the cold January night outside that long but he made time fly by with every story and location we visited. The walking wasn’t too far and he brought us back to where we started for the end of the tour which was nice. Highly recommend!
Spooky and Informative
