We did tour #1 out of 7, as told to us by our tour guide. He was witty and knowledgeable about the area. A nice 45-50 minute ride around downtown with interesting stories to take home!

We had a great time! Lori is so knowledgeable about Wilmington history. It was hot and humid, but she made it so much fun and so interesting we forgot about the heat! I would recommend this walking tour to anyone that loves history.

We explored Wilmington several times during our 2 day stay. The town is very charming with so much to see and explore. It's very easy to navigate by walking and taking in all the sites. We really enjoyed it.

The ghost tour was fun and interesting. We learned a lot about the history of the area with some fun little tidbits of ghost sightings in the past. My daughter was disappointed that she didn't see any real ghosts!

We found this walking tour to touch on everything. Lori is very knowledgable about the Civil War as it applies to Wilmington. You can tell Lori what you are particularly interested and she can give more details on that... More
