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
Y'all were awesome! I really enjoyed it. Thanks for such a wonderful experience! - Meghan Vannoy

My aunt, niece and a friend took the Dandridge GhostWalk. My aunt and I were skeptical but my niece insisted that we go. My aunt and I ended up having so much fun and were so glad we attended.

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. We're trying to get a group together to come on one of the Bigfoot trips (the Cherokee Bigfoot Adventure Tour) later in the year. We've been telling family and friends about it (our tour) since we returned. Thanks again! - The Johnson Family, SC
