One of the most interesting tours we have every taken. Lots of history and fascinating stories of the people who lived in the houses and in the town. The tour was reasonably priced and the right amount of time. Beautiful weather and gorgeous town to visit with lots to see and learn about. Alisha was a great guide! Highly recommend this tour!!

Fun walking tour of several homes in downtown Franklin, supposedly haunted by ghosts. Tour guide was wonderful, very informative of history of the areas and homes. Carried an Ipad with photos capturing images of some ghosts. Well worth the 20. fee and highly recommend.

I attended this tour on Halloween night. Alisha our guide was very engaging and she definitely knew her stories! We laughed we ooh'ed and awed quite a bit. There was not a lot of walking to see 5 places that have ghost. I really enjoyed learning about the ghost but also the history of downtown Franklin. I would like to go on a history tour next!!

Absolutely loved this tour! Alisha was our tour guide and was great. I did the ghost tour and it was fun, spooky, and I was surprised by how much effort they put into the historical research of the stories.

My friends and I have wanted to do this tour for a while and now, we want to do it again! Alicia was an amazing guide. Her in depth knowledge of Franklin history made the tour so much more interesting and her enthusiasm is completely contagious! If you love history and great stories, you must do this tour!
