Whenever I travel, I always seek out a ghost tour. I don’t really know why, I’m not overly fascinated with the supernatural but it can be interesting. I have been on some really great and some really not so great ghost tours. This one was just so-so. I was a little disappointed that you are only able to actually go into one of the sites on the tour. The price is decent at $15 and the tour is about 90 minutes long. You see (hopefully!) and hear about ghosts at a variety of downtown spots including the old city jail, Seelbach Hilton, Brown Hotel, and the Palace Theater just to name a few. Interestingly, a bird pooped in my hair on my tour. Good thing I had a water bottle with me! I probably would not take this tour again, but it was a nice introduction to the ghosts of Louisville as well as some sights around the downtown area. The tour meets at 4th and Liberty in front of Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant.
