Owner description: Join us for a lantern-led walk through the historic streets of Marietta and discover the other side of this enchanting "Gem of the South". Experience why antebellum mansions and civil war memorials are not the only reminders of days gone by through a compelling blend of storytelling, history, and the supernatural.

We drove to Marietta which is five hours from our home and checked into a hotel in Marietta specifically to take this tour. As we were preparing to leave for the tour, they called to tell us the tour was cancelled. We inquired about a refund since they were canceling and we were only in town one day specifically for this tour they told us we could call back in two days. We did and they then said they might have done the tour had they realized we were only there for a day (which we did tell them) but it was too late now and they did not give refunds. This is a scam to get your money and keep it without delivering. So we spent a day of vacation that we could have spent at the beach, paid for a tour and a hotel room for nothing.

this was an enjoyable history walking tour of Marietta. no ghosts were seen but some interesting stories told. adults more so than kids and you need to be able to walk some distance.

The tour is packed full of Marietta Confederate history. I loved that! The ghost stories were sprinkled throughout the tour. Our guide, Shiloh was well informed and did a very nice job. I would have really enjoyed a little more over the tunnels....... It was a nice holiday weekend tour with great evening weather. Looking forward to the Haunted Trolley next

My boyfriend and I just got back from the tour. It's very interesting and full of stories of Marietta's history. We took the original walking tour. We didn't see any spirits, but enjoyed the stories. You don't actually go into any of the buildings so expect to stand outside and look into the windows and doors. The people you take the tour with help to make it, so bring your friends or book a private tour to avoid any loud talkers or rude tour goers.

Looking for something exciting on a Sunday we were pleasantly surprise to find this tour. The trolley tour was very informative and the theatrics are engaging. The tour used to be BYOB but maybe not since we were there in September. We as well as other guests brought adult beverages but things went a spray when cups were left on the trolley and spills happened. Overly embarrassed but the employees did a good job of acting like it was not a big deal. Very accommodating and respectful but I felt horrible! ONE OF THE BEST TOURS IVE BEEN ON SO GO SEE THESE GUYS IN THE LOVELY MARIETTA!
And we'll leave the beverages for the pub crawl!
