I've been on ghost tours all over the US, Canada, and Ireland, and this was by far the best tour and investigation I've ever participated in. Gene was so knowledgable about the history of the area--he's definitely done, and continues to do his research of the area. This is so much more than just a walk through of the town with ghost stories. You get full use of various pieces of ghost hunting equipment, with instructions on how to use everything. The tour ends with an investigation inside an old historic hotel where the equipment really comes in to use. Highly recommend Haunted Hangtown Ghost Tours--you definitely won't be disappointed!!!

Highly recommend this ghost tour! I went with my boyfriend a couple weeks ago and I want to take my mom back to experience it! It's completely interactive and well worth the money. You actually get to search for the paranormal yourself, just like on Ghost Adventures. The tour guides are super friendly and they provide you with all the ghost hunting equipment you need, along with explanations on how to use them. They also give a little haunted backstory to all the places we visited and told us about previous paranormal encounters theyve had at the same locations.

I did this tour/investigation with my mom and two friends. We had a blast. I do various investigations fairly often and have all my own equipment so am pretty familiar with this field and Gene and Stephanie are total pros. They know what they are talking about and are just cool people. We got a ton of activity in the Cary House. I highly recommend this tour and any investigations they lead.

Did the tour last weekend and it was freaking awesome! This was more than just a little history lesson on Hangtown, we used real ghost hunting equipment and saw actual paranormal results! The tour was in 2 parts, we walked down main street and did really quick ghost hunting at a place called Cozmic Café and the courthouse. The guide really knew what he was doing and kept everyone engaged and asking questions. The equipment that he had was totally cool and we got to use all of it in the Cary House, which is really cool, especially if you’ve never been there and heard about it before. If you are looking for a boring history walk, this is not it! Our guide Gene totally led us as a group through the steps of an actual investigation, he also told us the video results would be posted to You Tube which I can’t wait to go see. Well worth the price and we would totally do other tours with this guide if he had them.
