Itinerary
This Memphis ghost walking tour begins on Beale Street, one of the most iconic streets in America. Beyond this 2-mile stretch of blues clubs and restaurants, however, lies a darker history of vice, voodoo, phantoms, ghosts and lost souls. Hear the tales of an eerie past while visiting some of Memphis' oldest sites.

Follow the expert storyteller guide through the town to discover Memphis in a completely different way than the regular tours — in search of its haunted places where a lesser-known history is uncovered. 

See the Orpheum Theatre, one of the few remaining movie palaces of the 1920s and home of a ghost named Mary, who has haunted performances here since 1921; the John Alexander Austin House, a Victorian-era mansion said to be haunted by two lovers; the Gayoso House apartment building; and Grawmeyer's, Memphis' oldest German-American restaurant and its haunted piano.

Finally, receive a tour of the notorious Ernestine and Hazel's, well known as one of the most haunted buildings in Memphis. Take a look around this former brothel turned bar, which is home to several ghosts — and a haunted jukebox.

Approximate distance to travel on this walking tour is one mile.

Good ghost histroy

Guide seemed very familiar with ghost history and times. Unfortunately, manny of the original structures were long gone, and very few "scary" areas. In past tours, the guide would provide water (very hot summers here June 25th was 94 degrees) but no water available unless...More

Fun ghost tour with interesting stories and insights

Our guide was fun and informative, answered questions, and delivered the stories surrounding the sites we visited wonderfully. Admittedly, we had already had a couple of adult beverages before the tour began, so she could probably have told us that she'd personally gone to dinner...More

Don't waste your money!

My two friends and I went on the Ghost walking tour and it was not worth the 20.00. REASONS: You can only go inside one of the haunted places and that place is the last stop. We were told we could get water, some people...More

Fun Ghost Tour

This ghost tour was good, but nothing spectacular. The guide didn't seem to be especially knowledgeable, but she was friendly and enthusiastic. I didn't find it to be at all scary, but that's okay, wasn't really looking for that. I would say this tour was...More

Super spooky, history filled and entertaining

We have done several ghost tours in other cities such as Savannah, San Antonio and Chattanooga. This was by far one of my favorites, very informative and full of fun. Mike was our guide he kept us all enthralled and entertained.
