Vampire Stalkers: Mystic Falls Tours
Jessica Lowery hires her tour guides based on strict criteria: they have to know cast members of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, they have to work for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation and they have to have actually spent time on the shows’ sets.
Lowery said this strict criteria needs to be met so guides can provide fans with an experience they would not be able to get on their own.
Reviews on TripAdvisor.com note the expertise of the guides and satisfaction of each person’s experience.
Lowery said they recently had actor Chase Coleman from The Originals stop by Mystic Falls Tours with his mom and take photos with fans.
And while fans come to the tours with big hopes of seeing their favorite actors, Lowery said there is no guarantee due to schedule changes.
“Book a tour during filming season, and if they are filming it’s kind of like Santa Claus came that day,” Lowery said of the advice she gives to fans.
Either way, she said Mystic Falls Tours makes sure everyone has a great time taking photos, reenacting scenes from the shows and tweeting their favorite moments of the day.
