Participated in this duo's "Voices In The Mist" walking tour of downtown St. Ignace. Tour departed from the Museum of Ojibwe Culture and ended at Fort du Buade, mostly traveling along the Huron boardwalk. A sign advertising the tour at the Ojibwe museum called it a "ghost walk." As someone who likes a good creepy story, I was quite interested!... More

Our group of 6 (2 adults, 4 children ages 9-15) went on the Twilight Ghost Tour. We met our host/guides Jim and Mary at 9:15p.m outside the Locks Park entrance just as it was getting dark. They were dressed in trapper/colonial attire and were very friendly and knowledgeable about the Soo. As we walked along the main downtown area they... More

We were asked if we wanted history or ghost tour. We said both. Thus began an evening walk that was both informative and magical. We saw no ghosts but firmly believed they were there after Jim and Mary got through spinning their tales. We were entertained with song, history of the town, history of all the people that make this... More

Nice walking tour and history of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Jim and Mary are delightful. I am a skeptic when it comes to ghosts and no ghosts where seen or heard. We enjoyed the history and ghosts stories nonetheless.

I am a bit of a history buff, and genealogist, so the Twilight Ghost Tour satisfied my curiosity about the shady history of Sault St. Marie and my Black Irish roots. Jim and Mary are absolutely delightful, and they can spin a tale like no other tour guide I have ever heard. The music they sing, and their period costumes,... More

As we were the only ones on this tour we got to choose between history and "ghost" tour. I chose History but said throw in any ghosts you want. And he did This is an interesting historical narrative from an insider's view that will leave you with a much better prospective on this town and this area. Jim knows his... More

This was one of my favorite experiences during our trip the Sault. I had no idea this sleepy little city had such a scandalous history! It was really a delight to experience Jim and Mary's passion for local history and the ancient art of storytelling. Well worth a $10 donation.

I went on the 9pm ghost tour, and it was great. A lot of interesting history/Irish lore mixed in with the paranormal stories, though not as spooky or as creepy as I have heard other ghost tours in different places. The guides arrived dressed in costume and were passionate about their stories-making the tour vey theatrical with several songs and... More

My wife, daughter and I have fallen head over heels in love with the Upper Peninsula. Woodsmoke Jim and Riverlark Mary have helped us cultivate this love of wilderness and history with their wonderful tour of the St. Ignace waterfront. The tour is gentle on the legs with frequent rests filled with stories of area legend and lore. Jim projects... More

I took the ghost walk with Jim and Mary and had a thouroughly enjoyable time. The walk was not strenuous and had frequent stops to hear the tales of the various buildings and unusual sightings as well as a bit of the history of the area. I had a great time and would highly recommend this tour.
