What to expect on our tours.
First time on a ghost tour? No worries! Bring your bravado and get ready for a scare! Keep an open mind and prepare for a good time. Our tours offer more than just ghost stories, as our tour guides have become well-versed in Dahlonega’s substantial history, so even skeptics are sure to enjoy a walk through our historical town.
What should I bring?
On the pub and wine tours make sure to bring your ID's as you may be carded and asked for your ID. All of our wine rooms and pubs accept all major credit cards and cash is always happily accepted and may speed up checkouts.
Many of our tour goers like to bring cameras along. Phone cameras often get results, but often do not take the best quality photos. Digital cameras certainly get the best results and are recommended for high quality photos with much better results. Our guests often get wonderful paranormal photos on our tours, enhancing their experience on our tours. If you do capture a paranormal photo, please remember to do a check-in on Facebook and share the photo with us!
How should I dress?
The Grapes and Ghost Wine Tour and Boos and Brews Pub Crawl are both less than a 1/2 mile walk, clocking in at about 2 to 2 ½ hours or longer. We spend between 20 and 40 minutes at each stop. Please dress for your individual comfort, however, sneakers or a nice pair of walking shoes are recommended. Be sure to check the weather beforehand. If it is raining bring a raincoat, umbrella, or poncho.
When should I get there?
Please arrive about 10 to 15 minutes before the tours begin. If you have not paid in advance and need to purchase tickets on site, please try to get here 30 minutes in advance as there may be a line. Also, if we do not have advance reservations tours close 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
Check in for a pub crawl or wine tour takes a bit longer as we may need to check participants I.D. We are available on site about one to two hours before each tour. You are always welcome to come early and enjoy resting on our scenic porch!
Our wine room, Grapes and Ghosts Tasting Room is open before all of our evening tours and wine is available for purchase.
Should I make a reservation?
Absolutely. We highly suggest making a reservation. You can reserve by phone. However, if you want to assured of a spot on one of our tours, book online. Do note that our tours book particularly quickly in September and October. Go to our tickets and pricing page for instructions and recommendations.
It is especially important to make an advance reservation on the pub crawls and wine tours as we always notify our locations before the tour so they know to expect us. Tours may be cancelled if there are no advance reservations.
What about inclement weather?
We will always have tours regardless of rain. However, if there is dangerous weather, like thunder and/or lightning, the tours are subject to cancellation or delay. If there is dangerous inclement weather and you have made a reservation, whether by phone or online, and you have provided contact information, we will reach out to you, letting you know the status of your tour. We will also post cancellations on Facebook!
