Fun and Interesting Tour!

This was our first time in Waynesville and we thought we would try this tour to learn a little more about the area. While it only covers about 5 blocks of town, there were ample stories and the time flew by! Dannehl has researched important parts of the towns history and presents it in a casual way. She is able to cater the tour to your interests, whether you are more intrigued by history or if ghost stories are your thing. You won't be disappointed if you choose this tour! -Kyle

Great fun and information!

I have lived in Waynesville for several years and I learned new information. Dannehl really knows her history and legends and I could have walked and listened even longer. Be sure and do this tour when visiting Waynesville. It will make your vacation experience even more fun. -Teresa

Support this New Business!

We had a wonderful walking History, Haunts, and Legends Tour this evening with Dannehl!! Even though we've lived in Waynesville for 28 years, we still learned so much. We encourage others to support this new business and get out and enjoy our beautiful village after sunset!! — Rufus
