Vam­pire Stalk­ers: Mys­tic Falls Tours

The Covington News - - LIFESTYLE -

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.
