On a very chilly night, Morgan Gates gave us shivers! He is such a good story teller! Knows his history and shares it well. We took the Haunted Vicksburg tour at night and the cemetery tour the next day. So much rich history and interesting events and people to discover! Be sure to get his book, too!!

We always enjoy ghost tours wherever we go and this was a very informative and exciting one on a very cold Vicksburg night! Would highly recommend!

I like ghost tours because they are a great evening activity that allows you to actually learn something. This tour was no exception!

We did a walking tour for $18/adult, we ended up being alone - so it was private (the company gets extra points from me for not cancelling on us just because we were the only ones who signed up). The night was perfectly spooky and Morgan's stories fit nicely with the atmosphere of the dark city with only the wind shuffling leaves around. We learned a ton about local history, mostly Civil War, but not just.

I have to admit though, at times I had to really focus on listening to understand Morgan - English is my second language, but I have been in the US for years, so usually it is not a problem (maybe I'm just not used to a Southern accent). I also felt that the tour is strong on the dramatic/tour aspect, but weaker on the personal side of getting to know the guide/learning about what is going on in the city nowadays, etc.

Overall, good experience which I would definitely recommend.
