I had always wanted to visit Old Gray Cemetery in Knoxville. For my birthday this year, my husband gave me a Knoxville Walking Tour. It was very informative and interesting. Our guide Laura was superb and well-informed about the many historically significant people buried there. It was well-worth the cost.

This is something most everyone would enjoy. Our guide was witty and genuine, the cemetery has so much history and the whole experience was worth the $15.

Heard lots of good stories ended near Market Square so was able to take care of my thirst and talk the walk over with friends we all enjoyed

We took the Shadow Side Ghost Tour and had a great time! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and had no problems answering all our questions. I like how the stories all were historically accurate, I did not want to go on a "Ghost Hunt". Be prepared to walk a fair bit. My parents were with us (in their 60's) and... More

We really enjoyed our tour with Laura. She really knew her history and was clear and passionate about the history of Knoxville, which really made her talk more interesting. The walk was an easy one. We had a couple of senior citizens on our tour for which it was a little tough because of standing for a long time. Laura... More

We were only planning on being in Knoxville one day--not a typical tour day. I emailed and asked about an added on tour and they graciously added one on for us. My family of 4 were joined by one other couple on the tour. Laura was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and proud of this town and area. We... More

Very well planned out. The historical information was awesome. It would have been better, if you were able to go inside the buildings. The cemetery was awesome

Well, that and the food (Knox Mason, Lonesome Dove, Oliver Royale, and Babalu Tacos). We went on 2 walking tours with Laura: Early Years and Gunslingers. Both were highly informative and surprising in their twists and turns. The beauty of history is you can't make this up. We enjoyed both of them equally and look forward to doing more of... More
