Dave Riordan is an interesting storyteller and has a wide variety of tales and throws in a few jokes, as well. Most of the tales are fine for all ages, but a few of them are rather violent and descriptive. A 10 year old in our party was disturbed by one of them, so I would consider the sensitivities and...

The first thing I thought when we got tickets for late night on a weekend for the landing was "will we be stabbed?" but those thoughts were quickly dismissed by the group (about 20) people and the relatively small walking area (a matter of 4 blocks total?) The storyteller was great - you can tell he really loves his job... More

Dave is a wonderful story teller and local historian. My wife and I love history and also enjoy creepy ghost tours. This is a combination of both. We have been on walking ghost tours all over the country and this ranks high on our list. Thanks Dave for a fantastic evening and we are happy to get to get to... More

We had an excellent night for a haunted history tour. Dave, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable on the history of St. Louis and kept us captivated with his spooky yet true stories. I would highly recommend and most definitely do this again!

Entertaining and fun evening activity for a group - Mr. Riordan is quite the story teller! You'll want to take care crossing the old cobblestone streets, but it's a nice stroll.

The tour guide was exceptional, wonderful and a wealth of information about St. Louis. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in history and folklore and also for anyone who has never been to St. Louis. He provided so many interesting facts and stories that even my daughter, who goes to school in St. Louis was not... More
