Great for ghost enthusiasts and history lovers!. I have taken this tour several times over the past few years. These guides have been around for a while and know a ton about Richmond’s history. The cool thing is that they not only get the history right, but the stories they tell are really believable. The have details that just sell the stories. They aren’t cheesy, trying to distract you with actors or anything, just good stories about cool places in Richmond. And they’ve been around long enough to swap out stories so you can go back and you’ll get new stories. Totally a great thing to do! – hauntgirl
