I recently took a party of 6 adults to the Ghosts and Graveyard Tour. The first two stories were great and engaging. After that ,the tour took random stops that had nothing to do with the story being shared. Also, the stories were more historical , then about the hauntings that took place in this area , which is what we paid for. Tour guide was very strict, not friendly, and non-approachable. My advice don't waste your money!
It is very apparent that the staff of this company would be likened to the island of mis-fit actors! And so much for history? And what about the ghosts? The tour had 50+ people on it......not for a informational tour but to get as much money into the owner's pocket!
I didnt pay money to hear the guide to tell us how great he is! Asked for our money back and was told "no!" I am surprized the this town or its historical community would allow these nuts out into the street!
The guide was terrible. The stories were scripted and contrived and not the least bit interesting. I never write reviews but just had to comment on this as it was by far the worst thing I've done in years. On top of the terrible guide and lame stories 10 minutes into the walk it began to rain and continued to rain harder as the walk progressed. There was no attempt to turn back. By the end it was pouring, we were left far from our starting point in a dumb graveyard.
I thought that this would be a tour based on historical happenings, tragedies, and the experiences of real people over the years of history in Alexandria. It wasn't that at all. First, for starters, this company does HUGE tours. There must have been 40 or 50 people in the tour, and as we walked from place to place, the group was strung out for a long way down the street. There was very little interaction with the guides, and they seemed to have learned the script as if it were a role in a play. They really seemed more like actors, not people who are really interested in historic ghost hauntings. I love historic towns like Aleandria, but next time I'll do a tour with a different company.
