This is an extremely enjoyable tour. The captain and crew are very knowledgeable of the area and share a lot of interesting history and jokes. Nothing bad to say about it. I do suggest bug spray.

Captain Rod is awesome. His flare and storytelling abilities made this trip one of the best ghost tours we have ever been on. We were so sad to hear he was retiring this year :(. Go visit him soon!!!!
