The only content of this tour - was the walking
Rhonda_B
, Apr 2021
Very little History was provided - very few tales of ghost were covered. The ones that were told were more about what people in the tours have seen than what the town has experienced. Over all low content and information. The guide was entertaining, but not because of the history she shared or the ghost stories she knew.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
I am truly sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. I have already reached out to you via phone and left a voicemail. I look forward to you calling back so we can discuss further, as we are always looking for ways to improve.
