Lisa's an awesome ghost host! We had our tour homecoming evening at the UW, there was magic and fireworks in the air! I learned a lot - like there are 2 guys buried on Bascom Hill and their markers are right there in the concrete. I've walked over them so many times without even realizing. I'd love a picnic point campfire/ghost stories in the summer!!

Lisa was amazing--she was dressed like an epic vampire. And she is a great storyteller. The tour is worth it just to hear her tell stories. I really liked that this isn't a "ghost-hunting" tour, but rather a "let's learn about the history of Madison through some cool and creepy stories!" You get to see some cool sites around Madison and learn about some cool bars and restaurants to visit. Make sure you bring a good jacket with you if you are doing the tour in the late fall!!

Loved our recent ghost tour with guide Lisa (omg that get up was stellar). Cool stories and a lot of local history I was clueless about given I've lived here decades. Thanks Lisa...next stop State Street lore.
