Very food tour, a little hot should have brought water for myself. Tour guide, Brad?, was fun and engaging. Liked the history part a lot, stories not really scary. Will try another sometime, it was fun!

Hey, so sorry for the delay. Typically in Raleigh it is not a great big deal as long as with parents. I do suggest contacting us on special situation like this to ensure the route/itinerary is OK for guests just under 21.
