Totally unorganized and unprofessional pub tour. Owner-operator simply dragged us around to his favorite places - seemingly without notifying the bars we would be coming. We had to wait in the lobby of each establishment while the staff hurried to pull tables together to accommodate...More

We had a great tour with Chris. He is very knowledgeable about the history and ghosts of Asheville, and a great story teller.

This is untrue. They had no reservation for that date. Since it's easy to mix up a date over the phone, we verify time, day, and date carefully. We keep detailed call logs, and there was no call prior to tour to verify. The customer...More

We're sorry that it was tough to see because it was dark. That was the last tour we did last season, and it was also the week that that time change occurred, which made it darker than normal. Obviously we will keep that in mind...More

Better Tours provides a great experience. We had a wonderful evening walking around beautiful downtown Asheville and hearing amazing/scary tales about its haunted past. Kelly's stories jumpstarted our Halloween season perfectly!
