About
Appalachian GhostWalks' located in the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains and Southwest Virginia Highlands offers sixteen different Ghost History and Bigfoot Adventures with both day and evening vacation packages. Recently voted one of the best ghost tours in America by USA Today's 10Best, holding the #2 spot in the Nation, visitors will thrill to our lantern-led haunted and historic walking tours presented by professionally Certified Ghost Hunters who recount true "spine-tingling" stories of real history and real ghosts. Our full-day "Mountain Mysteries" Adventure Packages offer a chance to visit the interiors of mansions, museums, historic sites, and caves throughout our region. Everyone is invited to come and bring the whole family, or group on a haunted history adventure in what the Cherokee call "Shaconage" - the sacred land of blue smoke! All offerings are located in the heart of the Northeastern Tennessee and Southwest Virginia Mountains to include towns featuring buildings that pre-date the civil war in Historic Dandridge, Erwin, Elizabethton, Johnson City, Greeneville, Rogersville, Blountville, Gatlinburg, and Jonesborough - once listed on the Travel Channel as one of the top ten most haunted towns in America! Our Haunted and historic Virginia tours presently include the historic districts of Bristol, also known as the "Birthplace of Country Music" and Abingdon, Virginia - a gateway town to this area rich in heritage and history and designated by Congress "America's First Western Frontier". Our history, in towns listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is endorsed by local historians, historical societies, and local heritage alliance partners. In addition, for our avid paranormal enthusiasts who love to delve deeper into the mysteries of our mountains, we offer several North American firsts to include the "Legendary Cherokee Bigfoot Adventure Tour" and the "Appalachian UFO Close Encounters Adventure Tour" - and Roswell, New Mexico doesn't hold a candle to the stories, experiences, and general "goings-on" we have here in these mountains! Also, so sorry, but we do not offer vampire or zombie tours. We hope to see your family, friends, or tour group soon for a simply SPOOK-tacular good time!!!

Had an absolute blast with our tour guide Stacey McGee!! He took us through the town of Dandridge and though we didn’t walk too far, the walk was filled with lots of interesting information. He brought us through his past past paranormal experiences and had us feel as if we were there in the moment with phrases like “imagine if you were me.” He was extremely exciting and enticing throughout the whole tour and made it super easy to stay interested throughout the entire tour. He was super helpful and understanding especially when I was struggling to learn how to hold the dowsing rods. He always made sure I got a good look that the photos that were taken and had a good look at all the buildings. At the end of the day it’s important to come in with a positive mind and know that in the end you will get out what you put into it. I would 100% recommend this tour for any fun loving group looking to have a good time and maybe get a little spooked in the town of Dandridge. He is truly passionate about it so please do not discourage him. Definitely go if you’re willing to go with the flow and see where the night takes you. Also Stacey if you’re reading this, you’re still the most interesting man we’ve ever met, and we can’t wait to stop in for another tour!

Bigfoot Adventure! Great! Although Hurricane Delta followed us from Mississippi, Stacey and his team were so accomodating to our group of 17. The adventure was full of stories as well as beautiful landscape. We all had such a wonderful time. Nine of our seventeen were under the age of eleven and boy did he truly have their attention. My husband and I were so enjoying the mystery on their faces as Stacey explained the unexplainable, priceless. Thank you again for everything! Mississippi Sasquatch SearchSquad! :)

What a great and informative Jonesboro tour! Stacey was our tour guide and expert story teller. He had a great flare for history, as well as making history come alive-as the saying goes “the devil is in the details”. He had an awesome grasp on the history of each stop and wove his own experiences into the story. Highly recommended tour. The tour was supposed to end at 9:00pm but reading the crowd Stacey kept going until well past ten. The tour is not rushed, plenty of interaction between Stacey and guests. With room to add your own experiences to the discussion. You’ll never look at Jonesboro the same way.

Our Ghostwalk was actually in Jonesborough. It was a great time! Stacey was super knowledgeable about the town's history and had a lot of stories about experiences that he and others had in the town. Photos were taken and we were able to see orbs in them, which was more than we were expecting. If you have any interest in the Paranormal, I would highly suggest this tour.

My boyfriend and I moved to east TN about a month ago and I’ve been having a hard time adjusting. I’ve always enjoyed ghost tours so decided to sign us up for this one for October 28th in Jonesborough. This tour did not disappoint. Stacey Allen was a fantastic guide. He is very informed about the history and hauntings. The tour lasted a good 3 hours and we learned quite a lot. We liked how it wasn’t a gimmick. There are no actors dressed up like they are back in the 1800s and telling you about “rumors” or potential hauntings. All of information given were facts from personal experiences, investigations, and doing their homework. It took my mind off of things for a few hours. We will definitely be going on more and recommend it.

Don’t waste your money, the most boring tour I ever attended. Stacy our guide spent over an hour while we stood in front of a fountain. He loves to laugh at his own jokes that no one else found funny.

We are sorry you didn't have a good experience with us. As you learned in your initial presentation, Fountain Square is the center of downtown Johnson City history and the beginning of a great story delving into the mysteries of the town's past. Most folks who have joined us for the Johnson City Little Chicago GhostWalk really love the information presented in the finest of local storytelling traditions. Readers are encouraged to read the many other wonderful reviews published here and on our website about this and many other of our listed tours as well as the affection shown toward Stacey, Tour Director and guide for Appalachian GhostWalks these past twenty years. Celebrating our 20th Anniversary, we must be doing something right. Stay safe and happy travels in all of your future adventures!

We traveled from St. Louis for this wonderful tour. Allen recommended we choose the Dandrige experience due to the age of the town, and wow was he right! I had the chance to walk down a dark alley and experience an encounter with a spirit, something new to their tour that they’re still exploring. Allen was very informative and made the journey absolutely wonderful with all of his knowledge of the town! We even had a never before experienced encounter with the town bell. It gave a gentle ring after I had approached it briefly and walked away. We liked to think it was the spirits of Dandrige checking in with us after exploring their town. Thanks for the spectacular ghost walk through Dandrige you two! Definitely book this trip now, you won’t regret it if you love paranormal experiences.

HI Laurel, I was on the tour you missed and I am sorry you had so many problems. However it is not a scam, we were there on the night you booked September 4th. We had a great tour and Stacey was amazing! Many historical facts as well as ghost stories. The tour was scheduled for two hours and Stacey gave us 3 hours. I would Highly recommend this tour again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Abingdon tour. It was so nice to have just our very small group of 4 on the tour. It felt personal and comfortable.
Stacey is truly such a blast to be around and very knowledgeable! We had such fun and learned quite a lot of interesting history!

I would definitely recommend booking a tour! Thanks again, Stacey! Hope to see you again!

We had a great experience on the Tipton-Haynes ghost tour. It was a fascinating mix of early east TN history and haunted tales in a fantastic historic location. Going to try the Jonesborough tour next, with Erwin on the list for later. Highly recommend.
