The Durham Pub Crawl & Haunted Adventure Tour is designed for all types of guests seeking a unique and different downtown Durham, North Carolina experience. You’ll hear about the unique Tobacco Empire history, stories and facts that will amaze you, plus experience the paranormal, ghost and haunting stories of multiple Durham’s known haunted buildings like the Liggett & Myers, Kress & Snow Buildings ghosts during this one point five mile walking tour.
Testimonial: Ashley did a great job of enthusiastically offering local and historical facts interwoven with ghost lore. A nice side effect of the tour is to see the nightlife, bars and eateries on a Saturday night in downtown Durham.
Because North Carolina has been a significant part of the American experience from the very beginning, it has emerged as one of the most historic places in the United States. And where there is history, ghosts and other elements of the supernatural can usually be found. Walking through these tranquil sites transports you back to a different time and place – and possibly acts as a portal to things that are not supposed to be seen. And if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of one of the past residents of this colorful city.
Note: Bars can vary from week to week. We like to change things up a bit for our returning guests.
Each tour is unique and bars that we visit will vary. You get four ghost locations, three to four bars in a 2.5 hour tour for a fast paced FUN evening. Put a group together and have the time of your life or death! Tour guest must be 21 or older and prove it.
Our Motto: the purpose of FUN, is to have some, come join US!
