There was a lot of information about the floods and history of Marietta and several stories about ghosts and murders. There were around 12 in our group and everyone seemed to... More

We checked this place out to get a tour of the city but their calendar on their website indicated that they were not working during the week. I gave them a call and for 20$ per, they would conduct a walking tour, of our choice, if we had at least 4 people. We were up for that so I elected... More

Took the tour Friday night before Halloween. Well worth the visit! The tour is a great way to fill up on local history with a nod to the paranormal. All info is credible and factual either documented in archives or 'from the source'. Guides were friendly and energetic. I must give props to Marietta for keeping the history alive with... More

Experienced the ghost tour this past Saturday with a wonderful tour guide Barb Palmer. Her passion and enthusiasm about the hauntings and history was the highlight of the tour. I highly recommend this evening of adventure whether you are visiting our beautiful city or a resident. I learned a lot and have lived her 55 years.

This tour was great! Our tour guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and had some great stories to share. We didn't hesitate to pay the $15/person charge, but afterward we both agreed it was more than worth it. If you are into small town history and an open mind to "hauntings and mysteries" you will love the tour. My husband is... More

We enjoyed the pleasant walk along the river front with a small group of about 12 people. The guide was friendly and told some of the history of Marietta such as flood levels, the hotel and other buildings. We enjoyed the stop inside The Lafayette hotel and a chance to see the interior of this grand building. There were no... More
