The #1 rated tour did not run on Mondays (when we were available), so we tried this one. It was OK. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, but it just wasn't quite up to par with the ones we have been on before (Victoria, BC & New Orleans). The gear that you get to use was a plus and fun, but there was no access to any places other than the street...I didn't feel "in the know" or like I was getting anything other than a street tour.

I'm sorry you were disappointed that we seemed more of a street tour, but unfortunately none of the ghost tours (even, as you call them the #1 ghost tour) go inside any buildings. Indeed, we go into haunted areas (e.g. memorial gardens, et.al.) the other tour does not not and, of course, the trolley tours cannot get up close and personal at all. Guests who have taken both walking ghost tours with both of the owners said the other was far more historical whereas ours focused more on the paranormal and actual ghost information and contact. We may not have been up to your standards, but unfortunately, I don't think anyone offers you your vision in Asheville. It is true ghost tours differ widely everywhere.

We went on this tour because it showed up as dog-friendly activity. Pedro is in a stroller and we were still able to do the whole tour with no problem. The tour guide was so nice and knew a lot about ghosts and the town. A perfect ending to a good day. And we learned a lot about the city and ghosts.

Signed up last minute with my girlfriend and was so impressed with this tour. We have been on ghost tours in St. Augustine, Savannah and Charleston. This was by far the best. Taylor's knowledge of history and architecture was amazing. The photos and devices were nice, but mostly he made the tour truly enjoyable.

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our tour on Saturday! I was rummaging through some pics I took and noticed a strange man-like figure in one of the windows. Thanks for the great tour!

We chose this tour because of a previous review. Are we glad we did! We ran into another ghost tour with 35 people. Our tour company kept our numbers down to 14 people per tour with multiple guides. It was informative, fun and yes, even creepy. Had never before been on a tour where we actually connected with ghosts. Loved it!
