    Olde Louisville Ghost Walk
    Craig_T, Jul 2022
    Our guide was very knowledgeable about the entire area and both recent events and local area history. The story telling tied the events to these historical happenings. It was a great time. When she tells you to bring an umbrella; make it a big one!
    Response from Host, Jul 2022

    Amanda_C, Jul 2022
    My daughter wanted to go on this tour. I was skeptical at first, but it turned out to be a great experience!
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thanks to your daughter for convincing you to join us! We always tell people: You don't need to believe in ghosts to enjoy a ghost tour! It's so much more than hauntings; there's history, architecture, real-life characters, and more.
    Fun, inquisitive, and informative about the history in Old Louisville
    Alyssa_D, Jul 2022
    We had an amazing tour guide named Jamie!! She was sweet as pie, waited for everyone in the tour before talking at the next stop and was really able to deliver and dive into the stories of Louisville! Awesome tour totally recommend

    History/crime walk
    Terry_M, Jul 2022
    Nothing memorable here. It was not a haunted walk at all. More of a history walk or crime story walk. We’re on the street the whole time. Didn’t see the inside of any structure.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    The tour description clearly stated that this is entirely an outdoor tour! So did the email confirmation and text confirmation you received! There is one true-crime story on the tour, but all the other stops involve tales of alleged hauntings in the neighborhood. There is indeed lots of history.
    Great experience love it!...
    Caitlin_L, Jun 2022
    Great experience love it! The guide was very nice and explained a lot of details about the tour that really painted the picture for us.

    Haunted wak
    Heather_C, Jun 2022
    Loved the walk and the tidbit of history of Louisville. Swear we saw a face in one of the windows of a house!
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    We're glad you had a good time! Come again soon!
    Angelique was great!
    Tracy_M, Jun 2022
    It was a lot of fun with interesting stories!! Angelique did a great job of keeping the tour moving!! There was a group of us that went so it worked well as a group activity!
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Thanks for coming to Old Louisville!
    Could have been a 5.
    Genetta_Z, May 2022
    The tour was very interesting. I loved seeing the houses where things had happened which I had already heard about. Ex. The murder house and the one where Jeff and Joe got in a fight and the cops ended up finding out about the body in the basement. It would have been much more enjoyable if we could have heard everything that was being said. Guide needs to wait for whole group to gather before talking. Loved the guide’s personality though. Angelique was our guide. I loved hearing about her experiences.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thanks for the useful feedback. We'll pass it on. Thanks for joining us in Old Louisville!
    Friday the 13th Ghost Stories. :)

    David, our guide, was a very good story teller and made the past come alive! The houses and people we learned about were fascinating; I would recommend this tour to anyone who is a fan of ghost stories and history/architecture.
    The tour was great, ...
    tamara_m, May 2022
    The tour was great, however the guide should have had a microphone. She also would start talking before the whole group was in attendance.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thanks for your helpful feedback! We'll pass this on to the tour guide! Thanks for coming to Old Louisville!
    Best experience ever!
