The tour guide, Patti is great. She is upbeat and fun. The tour starts outside The Old Talbott Tavern and then we ventured inside to see the room where Jesse James stayed. We moved into a conference room and watched as the lights flickered on their own. From there we walked to the Old Jailer's Inn. It would have been... More

We really enjoyed this Ghost Trek. Patti Starr is very knowledgeable and the stories were great. We had a ghostly encounter when one of the chandeliers went off when she was speaking. It was an entertaining evening.

Don't waste your time or money. Met in a parking lot, crossed the street and covered a total of maybe 50 yards. Heard a few stories and that was it.

Patty is a dynamo, very passionate about ghost hunting, has been former manager of talbot tavern and she knows and did research on the buildings. Fun, interesting, and I may have an orb in one picture.

This was much longer ago than August 2012 so i hope it still holds true. Great after dinner activity! Very interesting and wonderful history of the town whether you believe in ghosts or not.

Have been on this twice and Patti Starr never disappoints. Love the history and beauty of the buildings and surrounding area. Any tour with Patti is truly interesting. Wear good comfortable shoes as you walk a bit.
