These folks are excellent storytellers with a great combination of history and ghost stories. We received "AAA" treatment with personalized pickup/dropoff locations. Very convenient as we had no transportation. We took our tour in Dandridge and "kudos" to the guide for a great job! Very professional and we'll definitely do some of your other tours when back in area. We were VERY IMPRESSED - well worth the value, plus LOVE that you donate a portion to St Jude's!- Linda and the Dellinger Family
We were visiting from Minnesota and signed up for the Jonesborough GhostWalk! It was worth every penny. We had teens, children, seniors and a toddler along in our group and everyone was totally engaged in listening to the history and ghost stories our tour guide Michael treated us to. We enjoyed it so much we went back to Jonesborough the next day to see everything in the daylight! We would definitely take another tour the next time we are in TN to visit family and would even request Michael as our tour guide a second time. Thanks for a wonderfully spooky and enchanted evening on a Tennessee October night! - Stephanie Cline

We really had a good time (on the Gatlinburg GhostWalk) and learned alot about the history of Gatlinburg and also about the more positive side of ghosts in general.
