Lots of fun and very interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and obviously cares about his town a great deal. First time in your city and learned a great many things by taking this tour. Would highly recommend it. The only thing that needs to be done is to make the meeting place a little clearer.
Our guide was a bit over the top for enthusiasm, but I'm sure many people would appreciate that more than I did. I did feel the tour promotion itself was a bit misleading. Do be prepared to walk as there was only one opportunity to rest. Our guide had the voice and physical stamina of a real pro!
Even if history is not your passion, this tour is for you. If delving into local lore interests you, this tour will not disappoint. Robert, our host led up through uptown Charlotte and it's Fourth Ward with just the proper amount of flourish and cliff-hanging storytelling. We engaged in the 9 pm tour in hopes it would be even 'creepier' in the dark! From the history of the Dunhill to the ghosts of the medical academy and Chatlotte's first public hospital, you won't be disappointed. Ending at the cemetary was simply artistic genius. Well worth the fairly priced ticket.
This was an AWESOME tour. Our tour guide Ardy I hope I didn't misspell the name, was absolutely fabulous. We visited really cool locations, and the ghost stories were great, also a lot of history went along with the ghost stories. The tour concluded at a cemetery. Ardy encouraged us to snap as many pictures as we want to, never know what you may see when looking at them later, see the one I posted from 4-28-17, I promise, it's not tampered with. Maybe it's just a person walking by while I shot the photo, but maybe not. We had a really great time! Thanks Ardy!!!
The stories were good, and I understand the need to add a little drama to make it exciting, but I did not enjoy the re-telling of the story from different angles just to fill up time. I would have enjoyed it more had we spent less time hearing the same story and more time walking around looking at the old buildings.
