About Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours
Since 2010, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours has been spooking customers during investigation-based ghost tours. These tours have been features in SyFy Channels "Ghost Hunters" magazine recognizing the extent of Knoxville's Historical and Haunting past. Deemed the "Hidden Gem of Haunted America", these 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. These tours take guests on investigations with trained paranormal professionals to locations known for their traumatic histories. Another reason HKGT have been receiving the Nations attention is due to the fact participants are given real professional paranormal investigation tools to help encourage paranormal evidence and encourage team building. Why join a regular old tour when you can go on an ADVENTURE? Let Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours be your destination for your next... Late Night Adventure...

Not your typical ghost tour. Very "hands on". Also a lot of cool history of Knoxville and the the underbelly of it's past. Definitely worth an outing!

I have older scouts who like more unusual or challenging trips. They really enjoyed all the history that went along with tour. I don’t think there was a single disappointed participant on the tour.

I would say 1 to 1.25 miles with stops along the way... The stops include the hands-on investigation part of the tour where participants can sit.
