    I thought I was going on a ghost tour, which, I did. But I also was on a history tour, in the best way. I felt like I needed to take notes, there was so much to learn and discover. Would recommend!

    Wonderful way to see Old Louisville
    Jenny_W, Jul 2022
    Angelique was our tour guide and she was amazing. She brought the stories to life as well as having a personal connection to one of the houses. My favorite part of the tour was hearing all of the stories about not only the history of each house but also the stories of current owners.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thank you very much! We're glad you enjoyed your time with Angelique! Come back soon!
    Rich stories with Jamie the tour guide
    Maggie_D, Jul 2022
    This tour was a great look into the history of Louisville through a series of hauntings in Old Louisville at a steal of a price. Jamie was an amazing tour guide and brought the rich history of the area to life with her enthusiasm and good story telling skills. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Louisville!

    No tour/ticket confusion
    Carol_O, Jul 2022
    I gave my tickets to a friend as I was unable to go. They showed up at the location and no one was there. They drove around Old Louisville thinking the tour had started early and couldn't find the group. There may have been some confusion as we originally scheduled the tour by mistake for July and asked to get in a June date. The June date was rained out. When I got the multiple e-mails about the tickets I thought it had just been returned to the July date because of the rainout. No indication that the tickets were not viable. My friends showed up a little before 7:30 and no tour.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    We're very sorry for the confusion regarding your tickets and we're always happy to reschedule tours when people mistakenly choose the wrong date or have other issues arise. We never received an actual request for a new date, however, and you received an autogenerated email reminder for the original tour date booked. Two different telephone numbers were provided to confirm the details and we never heard back. Because many of our tours sell out a week or two in advance, or else they're booked by private groups ahead of time, participants need to confirm their date and tour times. The tour guide the evening you reference had a private booking and departed promptly at 7:30PM; and they always keep their phones handy to check for people who might have last-minute problems. We have no record of anyone trying to find the guide that night. We are still happy to honor your ticket, however; just contact us at the number provided and we'll reschedule the ticket for your friend at a convenient date and time. Thank you.
    Not good
    Matthew_C, Jul 2022
    Jamie was very knowledgeable regarding the ghost stories. However, her story telling was not good. The tour was very boring and we had lost interest after the first stop. The stories became long winded and the plots were lost after the first few minutes of the beginning of the story.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thanks for coming to Old Louisville. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the stories and will pass on the valuable feedback.
    Great Experience

    We loved seeing the architecture as well as the lovely gas lights. Our tour guide, Jamie, was wonderful! We would walk and break for a spooky story of Louisville’s shady past! If you go during the summer bring a water bottle.

    The Witches tree made us shiver.
    Lillie_A, Jul 2022
    The Witches tree with its spooky tale showed us that there is obviously some kind of strange energy going on. Although there was no obvious evidence for us to witness from previously told stories, the Witches tree made us shiver.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Glad you enjoyed that stop - it's one of the neighborhood favorites! Thanks again for joining us in Old Louisville!
