This tour was fantastic! The mystery built as we walked from location to location associated with the whodunit. The story built to a nice crescendo. Along the way we heard about many ghost sightings. Loads of fun!

Nice autumn day to listen to the stories of Charlttesville. Not scary, more of the curiosities of this small town. Would do it once.
