Really enjoyed the tour, Charlie was great and such a pretty hotel but it’s more of a history than a ghost tour.

Bobby Basinelli and Major Tom did an excellent job of mixing great historical information with spooky fun! My kid even got a picture of a ghost in the upstairs ballroom and it made his week! Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our time at Turpentine. It is very interesting to hear the back story of how the animals came to be in their care. We took the 1:00 guided tour and most of the cats and the bears were napping in the shade. The...More
