YES! Tours are conducted by riding in the caravan to an area (very close) and exiting the vehicles. Once we exit we walk for around an hour. After this time we load back up an go to the next group of locations where we again exit the vehicles and walk. No one misses anything at all by not being in the tour van. We pride our selves on providing a tour that consists of walking, scene re-enactment and photo-ops. All talking is done while we are walking so that no misses out on anything at all.

Our tour consists of a lot of different things that help you have a fulfilling time in Mystic Falls and insures you don’t miss anything or forget any scenes or homes that are important to most fans. Remember at most homes we have permission to stand on the porch, if you are not on our tour then you are standing outside gates, wishing you could come inside and join us. Plus most homeowners want you to be on a guided tour with us so that they will know when we are coming. All homes are private properties and NOT open to the public.
Filming occurs year round with a small break taken at the end of May into June. (approximately 6 weeks off) Pick a weekday and hope for the best.

I hope so! We never promise filming its just an added bonus the day of your tour.
We suggest the follow option for many guests. Small children do better in their own space and require many things like car seats and strollers. Smokers benefit from having a few seconds to themselves in their cars. People with back or knee problems may not want to climb in an out of the backseat so they may want to be in their own space as well. This is however just a suggestion. You may also need to book the follow option when the van is sold out. This way you still get to join us on the day that is most convenient for you.
children 3 and under are free with the follow option. Children that ride in the tour van must pay.
You book based on the number of people. All tours are done based on PER PERSON.
