  • Although there was no minimum age listed this tour is not tolerant of children. We were told that if my 2 year old grandson made noise we would be asked to walk away from the tour and come back. I purposely held my grandson rather then keep him in his stroller. I walked away once during the tour. At one point my grandson apparently was too loud for the tour guide although I didn’t think he was. The tour guide asked us three times to leave the building as we were trying to leave. She stopped talking to the tour so she could ask us to leave. Everyone on the tour turned to look as us as we tried to leave. Don’t go on this tour with your children unless you have children who don’t speak or make any type of noise
  • Tour guide Laurie was a delight on the Haunted History tour. Well worth the time and money. Teen girls got a real kick out of this. Go early and explore nearby shopping and cafes downtown.
  • We did the Taste of Matlacha tour. Our guide was very informative and enthusiastic about the topic. I gave 4 stars because there just wasn't much to the tour. True Tours appears to be a well organized business and we'd consider some of their other tours in Ft. Myers.
  • Went on Haunted tour with my Mom Friday night. We learned a great deal about the history of downtown Ft. Myers and were impressed by the beauty of the historical buildings. Laurie was a great guide. Her personality and knowledge of the area really made the tour come alive. Her sharing of stories and pictures of previous tour goers added to the mystique of the tour. Wish the person holding the ghost meter would have shared when there was activity but perhaps another time. Following Laurie's instructions, I took multiple shots and was able to capture a moving green orb in a window that I hadn't seen at the time. Overall, a fun night out which I plan to do again.
  • thank you Lauri. We really enjoyed the Haunted History Tour last week. My son is still talking about the chilling picture in the courthouse window. When we return next year we will try to do the other tours that you offer.And definitly want to do the HAUNTED HISTORY TOUR again
