Not this ghost tour!
LisaA
, Jun 2022
I would not recommend this specific ghost tour. Although the carriage ride was pleasant, the stories were told too fast, without inflection and poor presentation. There were many children on the tour so perhaps we received a G rated version. In this historic city, I am sure that it could have been more interesting.

Shannon and Jason were great. We were here for a girls trip, and decided to do the haunted tour. Shannon was so knowledgeable and then afterwards it made us even go see one of the graveyards. Would highly recommend it. Shannon was so beautiful and southern charming. Jason had his one speed but I loved it. It let Shannon pack more information in and enter act with the group.

Not Very Ghostly
Kent_D
, Jun 2022
We went on one of the evening ghost tour carriage rides. It was not as good as the walking ghost tour we have taken previously. We were in the 4th row of the carriage and it was difficult to hear the guide. A louder voice or small microphone and speaker system would have improved the experience. Also, the guide spoke more about history and restaurant recommendations than ghost stories, which made it still interesting.
