This food tour exceeded our expectations! The food was plentiful & super tasty, the guide & restaurant owners/managers were very personable as well as knowledgeable & Franklin itself was a beautiful small town. Worth the drive from Nashville!! Thank you for an amazing afternoon!

We were in Nashville house shopping when we heard we had to go down to Franklin and take the Franklin on Foot Ghost tour. We love these types of tours and this one did not disappoint. Our tour guide Robert was fantastic! I had goosebumps...More

We had a great time with our guide, Alisha. The 90 minute tour flew by. Although I grew up in middle Tennessee, I still learned plenty on this tour, and the ghost stories were awesome. Alisha really had a great way of telling those stories...More

Franklin on Foot is well worth the money! Alisha, our guide, was the BOMB! She is the most amazing storyteller! Also, she is shy about asking for tips. Please tip her! SHE DESERVES IT!

The tour was awesome! I may have caught a ghost image at Cherry Manor and am forwarding this on for review. Unless it was a smudge on the window it looks worth analyzing. Karen

My husband and I have done the Haunted Franklin tour twice and and it was great each time! Alicia was an excellent tour guide and we even heard different stories on both tours. We’re looking forward to doing the Murder and Mayhem tour next time!...More

Robert was our guide and he really made this tour educational, fun, interesting, and entertaining. I am sold on doing some of the other tours with them now. Franklin is a lovely area and the folks doing the tours are great. Please leave feed back...More

Terrific event - Alicia is a great guide. Lovely old buildings; heard lots of history about many of them that I was not previously familiar with.

What a great, fun tour! We were trying to find things my 14year old daughter would enjoy and this was it! Our tour guide was excited and made it very enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour, and we will definitely come back to explore more...More

Our Widow of the South tour includes tickets to the 3 houses that you then tour on your own. Each site offers its own tours. You save quite a bit doing it this way.

Absolutely. We welcome dogs on all our tours. We do briefly go inside a couple places on some daytime tours, however. One is a church that doesn't allow dogs. Which tour were you considering?

Most tours are 90 minutes. Food tour is longer. Cost for most is $20 per adult, less for teens and kids. Not a lot of walking. They stick to downtown historic area, stopping at several spots to tell you about the history.
