Terrible. Do NOT waste your money. It is nothing but a hearsay bunch of talk and history. Adding the Root house just pulls you in further to purchasing a ticket. I was actually excited about this tour and boy what a let down. Just one big walk around the block.

Sure you're told a several stories, but they aren't very interesting nor do they have one thing to do with a legitimate ghost or spirit. There is a bunch of historical tales but nothing particular about a specific spirit or ghost. The Root House isn't known for ghost so why are we going through it? The tour needs to do more research and uncover some new, true to life stories of the afterlife.

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.

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
