We went according to the recommendations of Tripadvisor and locals. It was the most disappointing tour me and my family have ever been. Throughout 2 hours, the guide told all the 'alleged' ghost sight stories. However, we could not go inside to even 1 place...More

We have been on this tour three times and each time has been different and enjoyable! Jodi, the guide, is a walking encyclopedia of ghost and murder stories concerning Jefferson. Be prepared for a long walk, since the tour takes over two hours, but definitely...More

The ghost walk is now seven days a week. Highly recommend this as a fun and informative history of Jefferson. October is the busiest time so be prepared for extremely large crowds. On this particular tour we did go to The Grove and that is...More

The point of this review is more so to give you a feel for what to expect... The lady hosting the walk was fun and smooth talking (long winded at times...) Making it difficult to expect "something" to happen, also go in a smaller group...More

Definitely a lot of good history on Jefferson. We loved Jodi's stories. For sure a great way to learn about the history of this quaint little town. I think where we kind of lost interest was the walk through the old mill. It seemed a...More

Good ghost tour, we enjoyed it. Supposed to be 90 minutes but lasted two and a half hours. It's a walking tour so in humid summer night we were soaked. Good stories, well told. I'd nix the walk through the old store. Reasonably priced, we...More

Jody seems to have some historic tales to relate about Jefferson. Her approach is often high-drama, indicating that there "are stories" connected with many of the buildings; but offering not too much detail. No matter which hotel you are staying in, when canvassed about it,...More

First of all, Jefferson, Texas is a great place to visit at anytime. A group of four of us went specifically for the ghost tour. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide, Jodie was fantastic. She's done a LOT of research on the area,...More
