Morgan was our guide and although we did not see any ghosts, she was great. Lots of stories and very entertaining.

Possible believer in orbs.

My husband and I went on the Walking Ghost Tour. Our guide was Sandra. She was awesome as well as had many interesting stories and tales. We had many photo opportunities throughout. I have been on many different ghost walks in several cities. I have also taken many pictures. But last night I actually got a couple of pictures with orbs. (At least Sandra said they were) Prior to this tour I was a non believer but loved hearing the stories. Now I will have to rethink the possibilities.

As the musical group En Vogue used to sing… “Free your mind and the rest will follow…”. I absolutely love that you came to the tour a non-believer but have had your brain tickled a bit. What a great experience! Sandra is our newest phenom and I am delighted that you enjoyed the history and storytelling. - PLUS you captured some orbs! If you happen to have any photos you would care to share - please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM. We may share them on social media. THANKS AGAIN and welcome to the family

It was okay. Entertaining at first but then it lost me. The tour guide was really nice and trying hard but both my sister and I struggled to stay engaged.

All I wanted was to learn about the ghosts, not a full blown history class where the audience is made to participate in pointless re enactments. I had to leave 30 mins into it because I just couldn’t bear it.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
I am sorry you decided to leave after thirty minutes. We do not force anyone to participate in any type of reenactments. Can you give more information? Night of tour? Who your guide was? After leaving at the thirty minute mark, did you contact the office or go back to talk with our office staff?

A Good Ghost Tour

We enjoyed this ghost tour. Learned some really good stories. Our guide, Byrd was sincere and pleasant. He was very patient with all our fellow tour guests. The price was right and it lasted the perfect amount of time. The group was very large, a few less people might have made the tour even better.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
I am thrilled to hear you all learned, appreciated the value of the price point, felt the timing of the tour was good and most of all had a great time! Byrd is simply an amazing tour guide and we are fortunate to call him a member of our family! If you happen to have any photos you would care to forward please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM. We may share them on social media. We would also appreciate it if you would take a second of your time and vote for us on USAToday’s Top Ghost Tours Contest. The link is on our FaceBook page - A Ghostly Encounter.

Morgan was a very fun, friendly, energetic person. She did a great tour and would love to do another one with her.

Morganne is the BOMB! She delivers a fabulous tour time and time again! When you do join us again, and if you should have Morganne as your guide you will find it is a different tour. That is the beauty of unscripted tours! We look forward to your next visit! Welcome to the family!

Boring not worth the money

Kind of boring, incredibly loud, less participation from the audience. Overall just not fun. Not particularly exciting.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
We are not able to control the volume of the city. Typically weekends are louder. The tour is listed as as walking ghost tour that shares dark history. We welcome you to send us an email at AncientCityTours1@gmail.com to share what part of those established expectations were not met. We are always willing to improve on what we can control.
