Not only was our tour just all around amazing, but put guide Cody was awesome! Informative and fun. Would recommend! We also went the opposite way of most other tours going on so it was nice to not be following other large groups around! The American horror story house was awesome.

My friends and I had a fun time!

My friends and I had a really fun time! Our guide was great, and the stories were a good mix between scary and interesting and funny. It was pretty much exactly what you would expect - touristy in just the right way. Ashli was also VERY helpful, and helped us switch some of our reservations around without issue when some members of our group were booked on different days.
