She brings the town to life using its historic nature and unbelievable stories. This tour changes your view of this quiet cute town into the most historically enriching place. She is such a knowledgeable and sweet woman. It is highly recommended when visiting this town.

A ghost story with a difference....walking around the village in the evening listening to the stories of times gone by, and hoping to perhaps see one of the many ghosts that live (not the right word really!) there. Very entertaining!
