Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Grove Arcade, 1 Page Ave, Asheville, NC 28801-2382

Stop At: Basilica of Saint Lawrence, 97 Haywood St, Asheville, NC 28801-2852

This building's architect is entombed in the wall of this church, and his apparition is seen roaming in the night, gazing, in awe, at the world-class dome he constructed with a secret method.

Stop At: Thomas Wolfe Memorial, 52 N Market St, Asheville, NC 28801-8105

The spirits of the great author (Look Homeward, Angel), and his brother, roam the halls of this storied mansion. Thomas Wolfe even wrote about spirits before he died at age 37. Wait till you hear the full story!

This is where troops rallied before the "Battle of Asheville" in the Civil War. Southern ghosts still violently shove some people to the ground, and spectral drums are heard beating in the night.

  • Our tour guide, Brian, was incredible! He is a great storyteller for both history and paranormal. Would highly recommend his tour for anyone!

  • Having a very knowledgeable guide who shared his personal experiences and photos. Also the bullseye in the sidewalk.

  • Church street or Ally whatever it’s called all the stories the guide was awesome I got three pictures at the church with some sort of energy

  • How personable and fun Brian was, you can tell he really loves doing it and gets a lot out of telling the stories.

  • Great tour!
    It was our first ghost tour - loved it!

    Highly recommend!

    Our teens also got into the tour.

  • Tad was a wonderful storyteller and was great at explaining the history of Asheville as well as the hauntings in the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Asheville!

  • This was a great tour. The guide was very hyper and enjoyed his topic. We learned history along with ghost stories. In trying to remember a place to eat, we used one of his ghost stories to find the place! This tour is a must for first visitors to Asheville.

  • First off I would just like to say the tour guide "Tad" was amazing. His knowledge, humor, and personality make for such a great experience! I live in Asheville and learned so much I didn't know! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

  • Tad was a great guide - extremely enthusiastic, and tells the ghost stories with gusto. The church towards the end was my favourite - its lit up with some interesting lights that make for a great photo opportunity!

  • Our guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Could have done without the museum tour.

  • I've been on three ghost walking tours and this one was the best. The tour guide I didn't catch his name was enthusiastic and genuinely interested in the subject matter. He has a degree in Anthropology which influenced his telling of incidents which happened in Asheville. Even if you are a nonbeliever, I think you would still enjoy the walk as the guide had an excellent knowledge of Asheville's history.

  • Had so much fun. It was historical and memorable. Loved the history of the city as we were going through the tour.

  • We enjoyed this tour with our family. Our kids aged 13 and 11 were also engaged during the tour.

  • Our tour guide was very antimated as well as informative. He answered our questions and we had a very entertaining evening.

  • Tour guide Brian provided so much background and history to bring the ghosts to life. Whole family enjoyed the walking tour.

  • My daughter and I loved this tour. Our tour guide, Tad , was very informative and seemed genuinely excited about his job. The pace of the tour and information given were easy to follow and keep up with others.

  • Brian was terrific walk was long 2 1/2 hours, up and down hills. Our 12 and 13 year old had a great time also. Worth buying this way considerably cheaper.

  • Great guide, very entertaining and lots of Asheville history included. Highly recommend.

  • My tour was fantastic! Very informative on the history of Asheville and the people who helped. A lot of walking is to be expected, not for the one with walking issues. Definitely wear appropriate shoes for the tour..Please Go!! Well worth it!! Enjoy!!!

  • Our family really enjoyed the haunted tour. Our guide, Brian was spectacular!! Very informative and we really enjoyed the mixture of history along with the ghost stories. He really brought something extra to the tour! Thank you Brian for making our visit to Ashville special! The information on the Masonic Temple and the museum was very interesting. We would highly recommend this tour!!
