Didn't know until we'd started the trolley tour, that a couple of our stops would be affected by a football game that night - a homecoming game no less. Streets were blocked and we couldn't get to a couple of places on the tour. The...More

This was a fun evening out with friends. I learned some history but the guide was a little bland. It was not spooky and the guide did not even seem to believe his stories.

If you don't mind a little walking, the night time ghost stories and history tour is fun! Lots of haunted buildings with lots of history and information on the underground tunnels under Marietta. This was a really fun tour.
