Description: Since 2010, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours has been spooking customers...
Since 2010, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours has been spooking customers during investigation-based ghost tours. Excursions are personally led by owner J. Adam Smith, who has been featured as an expert on Paranormal Paparazzi and has investigated paranormal activity for over a decade, taking tour-goers on educational, researched journeys to local haunts on public or private tours that, depending on the tour, traverse graveyards, Gay Street Bridge, and an old Confederate jail. Participants may reach out and connect with the spirits who committed a three-way homicide or the ghosts of hanged men at the actual locations of paranormal activity. Tours take guests on investigations with trained paranormal professionals to locations known for their traumatic histories. Participants are given professional tools to help encourage team building exercises and measure paranormal activity. Let Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours be your destination for your next... Late Night Adventure... Note: This is what we call an Express Investigations... Please be aware that we are taking you to many Ground Zero's in a short 2hr period.

Best outdoor activity

Best activity in the area. Very knowledgeable tour guides and I even got to use real equipment like on TV. I learned how to use a k2 meter and it was fun. Would love to go back.

My wife can not enough of Ghost Hunting shows and I was looking for information on the spooky side of Knoxville. We both walked away with even more than our original hopes. I was impressed with the knowledge of the tour guides and we both saw things that we could not explain. Awesome time.

My friend and I recently took a trip to Knoxville, TN and loved the people, the restaurants, the history etc but the highlight of our visit was hands down the Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tour lead by J Adam Smith and his assistant Seth. They were both super friendly, informative and professional. They are the real thing and made the tour... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tour! Our investigator really kept us engaged. I admit, I was skeptical at first, but after the tour I was convinced that there are things out there you simply cannot explain. The tour was convenient to the bars and restaurants downtown, so afterwards my group and I grabbed a few drinks and talked about... More

Did a private tour with my date and had a blast! Well worth the 1.5 hours drive. J was very knowledgeable and very helpful. We had a lot of activity on our first stop, and were instantly sucked in! I was a skeptic, but have some things to contemplate now...

Very exciting. The group was very friendly and helpful. I was skeptical at first, but once the action started I knew something was there. I had the flashlight and was asking the spirit to turn on my "flashlight" if they were there. Nothing happened, then Jay reminded me that they may not know what a flashlight is, so when I... More

I figured i would check it out, for it might turn my evening into an adventure, and it did. We took off on a... More

I have been on alot of tours with them, and every time we did an investigation, we have had some form of activity. I even captured some orbs on my camera! J is so passionate about what he does and it shows when he's leading a tour. He has researched the history of Knoxville and provides solid facts. If, by... More

This is a fantastic night touring many "hot spots" in town. My 14 year old son and I had a great time with Jay and Cody. We learned about Knoxville history and how the past still haunts the area. Jay was a great guide and explained what we were seeing in pictures that were taken and what we could feel... More
