While the rich history and haunted tails of Raleigh are very intriguing, the best part of this tour was our guide, Emy, and her enthusiastic approach to story-telling. She enhanced the stories and added fun historical trivia about statues and presidents, making the tour very fun and spooky! Would definitely do this again!

This was my second Ghost Tour and Pub Crawl with Tobacco Road Tours and it truly is a lot of fun..especially for a group of ladies from the ages of 40 to 55 like we all are:) There were 8 of us and we only get to see each other once a year so we chose this tour. Was so much fun! It was super COLD outside, so we may choose to do this again in the spring or summer! Just wish the one establishment that had advertised the Haunted Ghost Tour beverage (Cherry Crush or something like that?) was able to keep true on what they had advertised. We were told they were no longer able to supply that beverage as part of the tour. I would like to see the pub crawl offer some appetizers at the various pubs you visit along with the beverage of your choice. For example, charge more for the tour itself, but include a few appetizers as part of the "package" along the way. Just a suggestion! Overall.....our tour guide was awesome! Would for sure do this again and we will! Everyone in our group had a blast! Was not sure about the policy for tipping either and not sure everyone in our group did that -----so would like to see the policy for tipping the tour guides spelled out somewhere in the fine print!

The tour and pub crawl was very chill and fun. We moved at a reasonable pace to conserve time, and it was still very interesting and a great way to learn about Raleigh's history. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Brad was a super great guide! My dad and I are both lifelong locals of NC and he kept the tour upbeat, fun, and very casual. It was like going out with a few friends drinking, and between his great stories he gave great local recommendations for events, food, and local history as well as making suer we weren't freezing too much! He's the best!
